Outages tonight 10/5
Called Uverse after the first outage at 7:00pm - 45 minute wait, so I started to suspect it wasn't just me. I rebooted the gateway, and all seemed fine. Then again at 8:05 it went out - rebooted - started getting annoyed that it was fine on a crap TV day (Saturday) and having so many issues on Sunday (just when the shows/football started). It went out again at 8:30. I didn't reboot, but it came back a few minutes later. Then it went out at 9:20 - then again at 10:15 - I finally gave up on TV for the night, and got online to do the troubleshooting thing (with fingers X'd that Internet would hold out). Got to a chat guy who, of course, wouldn't admit there was a widespread outage and said there was a line problem on my account. Tech coming tomorrow evening. We'll see.
This was a very annoying TV night. DirecTV is starting to look tempting.
