Does anyone else have to completely reboot the DVR after loss of power?

It happens everytime I lose power. Shouldn't the system recover?

A BGW 210 is a gateway, not a DVR. But yes, I've had to reboot the gateway after a power outage.

the BGW210 is the att gateway box. The DVR settop box will be a different device. Normally the you are right, the system should recover.

I keep all of my equipment on battery backup to avoid any such problems. Not unique to Uverse, but all such equipment.

Yes, a UPS would be a great investment that avoids this. But, normally a reboot should not be necessary if power is restored. The gateway should restart /reboot normally after a power interruption.

Yes, it should reboot automatically, but it has to go through a bunch of gyrations, which may take a FEW minutes. You have to be patient and let the equipment do its work. Otherwise just do a reboot of your own and be patient. Let things set for a while and it will come back....
