Uverse and Tivo

Have two tivos which require cable cards. Since switching last week you cant use them for tv since uverse doesnt have cable cards. Will uverse use cable card at some point or at least have use of net flix app .I can still use them for netflix and the digital local channels but it is a pain too switch the inputs and use a different remote.Is there a code for tivo premieres that I can use the att uverse remote?

U-Verse is a different beast compared to traditional cable companies. It doesn't use the same tech and isn't compadable with cable cards. 

 

As for the remote, I don't see a Tivo as being supported on the manufacturers list. Consider getting a  Harmony remote to control everything.

When friending me mention that you found me on the AT&T forums.

U-verse's IPTV works entirely differently from Cable.  A U-verse box doesn't have a tuner in the conventional sense of the word and wasn't designed to work with the CableCard technology.

 

Over the years, some subscribers have gotten their Tivos to work with U-verse, but you do have to have a Set Top Box for each Tivo, as well as an IR blaster for the Tivo to tell the STB to tune to the correct channel.

 

Most people just used the Whole Home DVR feature that comes with almost every U-verse service level.
