Change from att DVR model VIP 2262 to VIP 2250 and having problems

DVR model VIP 2262 was beginning to buzz loudly. Att sent a replacement model VIP 2250. After experiencing glitches, stops and starts, I did the reset after reset thing with no improvement. Called ATT and they sent another replacement only to have the same problem with the 2nd replacement. Now ATT want to do the fiber optic replacement for an additional $30/mo. Everything was fine with the VIP2262 until the buzzing started. Does Att still make the VIP2262? There is something different between 2262 and 2250!

Hey there @Snapper51. Thanks for reaching out about the intermittent DVR service you've been experiencing, and we'd be happy to help you.

 

To get started, we'd recommend checking out our steps to troubleshoot your U-verse service. If you have a wired or wireless U-verse receiver

  • Press Menu
  • Select Help > Information > Troubleshoot & Resolve > TV > DVR
  • Follow the onscreen prompts.

Yes, we still do offer the DVR Model VIP2262, but the receiver you receiver is determined by which ones are available in your area.

 

Let us know if these troubleshooting steps help.

Thanks much Robert for your input. Actually, I got the model numbers reversed. The original DVR model that was buzzing is VIP 2250 the replacement model is VIP 2262. The new DVR VIP 2262 is experiencing the glitches by hesitating and skipping during recorded play. ATT has offered an upgrade to Fiber, however, we have satisfactory service now, except for the current DVR issue. Also, we’re disable seniors and the additional cost of the new service is a burden along with current inflation issues.
