Considering swithcing to U-verse from Comcast.. 7 TVS ??
I currently have Comcast Triple play in Elgin IL. I have 7 TVs in total.
3 HD DVRs, 3 HD Set Top Boxes, and 1 DTA for an SD TV in a guest room.
I also have internet service with approx 20 Mb down and 4 Mb upload speed, and 2 phone lines.. 1 for voice, and 1 for a fax machine.
I am generally satisfied with Comcast, except for the price. I am paying about $270/mo for these services. One benefit of Cable is that you are not limited to just a few HD steams. It is not uncommon to be recording 3 shows on the DVRs, and watching something different on about 5 of the TV sets.
I am considering a switch to U-Verse based on the price, but I am looking for some technical info.
My first question is with 7 TVs, what are the limitations for active HD streams? How many shows can be recorded or watched in the system?
My other need is to keep my current Netgear 750N router in the system.. at least as an access point. Is this possible? We often will have 5 or 6 devices connected to our wireless network. We seldom stream video, but email, facebook, some youtube etc…
Can someone address the technical limits of U-verse if you try to duplicate my current Comcast setup?
