Happy with U-verse; not happy with wireless receivers and hideious phone computer
Hi, moved over from cable to U-verse. I am very happy when the service works. Picture quality is great, and the whole house DVR an added bonus. I have one "problem" child on the wireless remote. I am on the third replacement in the main area and the symptoms are the same: Watch for a couple hours: solid Then the picture will start to flash black-TV picture-black then eventual solid black. Reboot, start over ... couple of hours: solid (repeat). I have a wireless remote in my bedroom: rock solid. The problem child has no RF interference: no microwave, no cordless phone, RG is in the next room. The wireless transceiver is in plain sight and about 20 feet (no walls -- clear path). Yet, this issue remains. Call 1.800.ATT.2020 and put up with that pathetic, hideous, and painful interface that adds insult to injury that I can look on line. Once AT&T techs come on -- again, great customer service. That computer is a PO S and should be an easier interface to talk with a live human being. As I wrote, I really am impressed when the system works. However, baseball season starts next week. I don't want to have a reboot, nor do I want to reboot prior to a game. Is/are there "hard-wired" receivers? I have asked for them in the past and everything has been replaced: RG, wireless receivers, gateway ... Technician is coming tonight. If this does not solve the issue, I must abandoned and go to either satellite or (gasp) cable. while this is more of a rant; suggestions welcome.
