HD DVR question (2 HD record + 1 HD playback)

Hi. I have scheduled an installation in the Dallas area for U-verse on Monday, but reading up on the HD DVR (I think it's the VIP1216), I am not sure if it will meet my needs.

Here is the scenario I am looking at:
1 single TV in the house.
I want to record 2 HD shows and watch 1 prerecorded HD show at the same time.

Is this possible with AT&T U-verse or should I stick with DTV?

Yes, you can record two at the same time while watching an already recorded HD show. You CANNOT record two live and watch a third live.

Thank you! That's good to know. As long as I don't lose features with respect to what I had with DirecTV I am fine :)

I was a DIrec customer for some time but I think the only feature that lost was having the "quick 9" but that started right as I got rid of the service.
