Default stream limit?

I hear that U-Verse limits to 2 HD streams. If I have 3 HDTVs, does this mean I can't go with U-Verse?

If you want to watch all 3 TV's at once in HD watching live TV, correct, Uverse may not be the best option. Only 2 live HD feeds at once can been. You can watch 2 HD streams and 1 SD stream or 2 HD streams and one DVR HD at once.

Does not mean you can't, just the three TVs will have to share the 2 HD streams as stated. If two TVs are watching the same stream (same program) that would count as a single stream, btw. I have three TVs myself, but with usually only two in operation at any given time. It is important to turn the STB that is not in use to standby to make sure no streams are being used by it.

Well I think U-Verse is out of the equation than. At night, I have 3 HDTVs being used. I also like the dual tuner HD DVR from Dish on the main TV which I don't think would work either with U-Verse . I really wanted to go with it do to internet speeds. I guess I'll get U-Verse internet and Dish TV when I move.

The Uverse DVR can record 4 shows at once and is accessible throughout the house.

Granted, but that DVR is still limited to two HD streams at one time. Recorded or live.

To clarify... are all three HDTV's watching different channels? If so, then yes, the TV portion will not live up to your expectations. But as far as the DVR, it actually has 4 tuners as opposed to the Dual tuner from Dish and other operators.

As for using VDSL and Dish, is the area available for standard dsl? if it is VDSL would have to be Max12 or higher for an install without TV. Also there would be an install fee.

I just got U-verse installed and just got off the phone with ATT because I am only getting ONE HD stream because technician said I am 2500 ft from the box, therefore I can only get one stream. I am so upset because they marketed this with 2 HD streams!!!! this is nonsense. Does anyone have any other information?

In some cases such as apparently yours they can't get a good enough signal without errors and have to cut back on the streams. They are working on pair bonding, which does not help you right now, but possibly in the future. I would guess you have the option to not take the U-verse service.

There are plans to expand to more HD streams. Course that will only be available to customers who have a real strong signal.
