AT&T U-verse Service

Most of you have seen the Ads for the relatively new U-verse Tv service from At&t. Well, here is my take on the service. It really does transmit a clear, and competitive signal, and for a lot of folks this is all they will require. Although, for those who want a bit more (like the ability to record with stand alone recorders) it seems these customers have been completely forgotten. The tv ads state you can record 4 shows at one time and view them on any other tv you might have. This is true to a point!!! That applies only if the shows you wish to record are not all recorded in hi-def. The band-width that comes with the U-verse HD-DvR has limitations and will not record all those shows in hi-def at once. They must be done using the analog mode which you may not want to do given the clarity of HD.

More about the other digital receivers in their system. It seems At&t completely forgot about customers who also have stand alone dvd recorders w/ component inputs and will nonetheless make fine recordings of documentaries and other shows of the subscribers choice. Matter fact, you can't delete recordings made on the HDDVR from the other digital receivers included in the system, neither can you select shows to be recorded from the non HD-DVR receivers. They will only give you (1) HD-DVR.

I think most people are aware of the problems with Cable Company Customer Service (or the lack of), but feature for feature it maybe awhile before At&T actually catches upand be able to accommodate the majority of us. Just my thoughts on the subject.
