AT&T U-Verse

I have had Uverse for quite a while now and must say I’m very pleased with it. In Houston the HD quality for the local stations is not as good as Directv though. I had U-verse installed primarily for the SD cable channels.

    This is a great article !!! I am a tier 2 for uverse in Milwaukee and this is great information . There are even things in this article that I did not know and it helped me understand the streaming part and how it differs from cable Thanks again

    I have TV’s hooked to U-Verse. I want to add a small TV to the backyard patio, so I’d like to know how to split a signal into this new TV.

    I rather have it be able to show it’s own channel while watching a different channel inside the house. But I don’t mind having the same channel.

    I tried using coax…but I learned that it does nothing.

    I connected A/V cables (red,white,yellow) from a receiver to the new tV, and it worked…but it shows the same channels as the original tv. The AV cables are relatively short, and can’t run it all the way out to the patio (25 or so feet away). Is there another option?

    Please let me know…thank you!

    The order rep just told me that you can record two HD shows while watching the third HD channel.

    Does it sound right to you.?

    Also, since I have only one coax cable running all over the house, how do they use coax cable to bring the signal to the residential gateway and then use the same coax cable to connect to set top boxes? Is that possible?
    Can anyone comment?

    No, only 2 HD streams at this time. That would be three. There could be 3 in the future though.

    They use the coax for the network. Not as good as cat5 would be, but it works.

    The 2-HD Limit…. one exception is you can be in the process of recording two HD channels at the same time and watch a 3rd HD program that was previously recorded. That’s because the 3rd HD program is coming from the hard drive in your DVR, not over the Uverse connection.

    I worry that 3 HD streams will be offered but with more compression, thus degrading all 3 streams. I’ve invested a lot in my current HDTV setup and I don’t want to go backwards in terms of picture quality.

    As a Netflix customer, I am sticking with “in the mail” DVD movies because their streaming movies are only 480i. I have an upconverting DVD player that improves the 480 resolution of DVDs to near 1080 (probably 1080i) and I recently bought a Playstation 3 Slim for $199 to cover Nextflix’s Blu-Ray DVDs.

    I’ve heard that Netflix is struggling to provide more than 480 streaming; seems if ATT can do it, Netflix can. We’ll see.

    The difference would be that Netflix will be tied to the internet so the stream may have to go through several servers or paths. The U-verse network is AT&T infrastructure only and does not get involved with the internet. You access the internet via the AT&T infrastructure back to their central server and then on the internet.

    Seems most people are pleased with the picture quality from what I’m reading here and elsewhere, but I just had the service installed Friday and I’m very disappointed. Some of the HD ‘cable’ channels are fine, but CBS/NBC/FOX etc are terrible and sports are almost unwatchable. I don’t understand the technology enough to know if this is normal or if I have an isolated problem. The other issue I have is I want to run the U-verse HDMI signal into the stereo receiver, but on-screen message from the Denon 2310 is that the signal type is not recognized. How can a digital signal be different, isn’t it either ‘on or off’?

    Thanks for sharing your experience Richard. I’m considering the new IPTV service offered by Centurylink here in Las Vegas. My biggest concern is the HD picture quality with sports. I’ve read that video with lots of movement, such as sports programming, tends to have issues because of bandwidth limitations with IPTV. What has your experience been?

    U-Verse is not the way to go when looking for TV service, here’s why. When looking for a TV service to go with there are a few things to consider. In my opinion those factors are HD channels, value, and technology. As far as HD channels go, DISH Network still has the most HD channels in the industry and the best equipment and value for the money. For example, as a DISH Network customer and employee I can tell you that U-Verse charges a $59 for the U100 package while DISH charges $44.99 for AT120. That’s $14 more than DISH for less channels. Another example is that DISH has the largest storage capacity for DVR’s in the industry (1 terabyte), and you can use the TV Everywhere feature using Sling technology. You can’t get that with U-Verse.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or
    maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My
    website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot
    me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from
    being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.
