Question about U-verse iPad app and home DVR subscription
Hi! A friend of mine has AT&T U-Verse service for TV and Internet access. She's got a total of 3 DVRs in her house, I think. At least she's got one DVR and a total of three U-verse receivers in her house. Anyway, she was doing some cleaning and disconnected her living room U-verse DVR. She reconnected it and eventually discovered she can no longer schedule shows to be recorded from her iPad, something she WAS able to do before disconnecting her living room DVR.
So, I went over there and took a look. She's got the "U-Verse v. 2.7.1 build 3091" iPad installed and it CAN communicate with her living room DVR. I can see the MAC address of the iPad with the living room reeiver tuned to channel 9301. The iPad app can change the channel being shown on her TV. So, the two devices ARE communicating. I can also use the U-verse remote, on her iPad, to record a show which is currently being shown on TV. The *only* thing she can't do is schedule a show to be recorded from her iPad.
When we try to look at the recordings on her iPad in the U-verse app, we get this message displayed:
