Thank you for posting this, do you know if these u-verse receivers have to be connected to a phone line (like dish network does, or they will charge you $5 per month) of if people should be running a cat 5 cable to these for future upgrades? Or do you think they are just there?

I just started seeing these in my area and I want to have my bases covered.

The best thing you can do to prep your house for Uverse service is to place a CAT5e cable (home run - no splitting) from a central location (such as the garage) to each computer or television. Att's incoming line will connect to a router @ the garage which will then distribute the signal to each of the CAT5e cables. If you do this yourself before hand you will have a much easier install (techs like to reuse old coax which can lead to problems). Even if you don't know how to make connectors for the ends, place the cables and the tech can terminate them.

FYI - a box of high quality Cat5e or CAT6 cable can cost upwards of $200, buy the best you can afford for a high speed trouble-free network.

While you are at it you should run a cable from the central location to the telephone service box area.

Default U-verse 1216 DVR

I have a two U-Verse systems (1200 / 1216) in my house. I noticed there are composite, Cat 5 and USB ports on the back. Is there an easy way to grab a TV show from the DVR and push it to an IPOD or computer for playing?

Is there a tech spec for the 1216?

The only thing I came up with was taking the video out to another DVR that will allow me to press DVDs or to a capture card.

Are there any other solutions? Downloading it to a USB Flash or being able to access the 1216 over TCP/IP for a download?

Thanks.

I have a U-verse system, and I would like to know how do I connect my video server to the U-verse STB so I can watch my stored movies over the network? My server is Samba and I want to place my server in the same room as the primary STB. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

That's not a possibility with the U-verse STB. It would be a great option though.

I'd recommend getting one of these: ASUS O!Play - TV HD Media Player Mine was about $100 and does a great job.

You cant do it through uverse at this point. I use my PS3 to watch my stored movies. But mine are on a windows7 ultimate box which the ps3 can view shared media on.
