Would a back-up battery keep my Gateway up on a PACE 5268A?
Every-time I loose either my power or my AT&T service my DVR does not re-set. I get a message to manually re-set it. As one of the two major points of having a DVR in the first place is to record shows when not home, this is a really stupid solution (and one not shared by your competitors!). After much searching through forums and google, I have come to the conclusion that the issue is my DVR recovers faster than my PACE Gateway 5268AC. The DVR never tries again on its own, so it waits for a manual restart. Again, seems like bad engineering not shared by others.
My question is: if I were to add a battery to my Gateway, would it keep it up and eliminate the timing issue? If so, why doesn't AT&T provide the battery? I know from my investigations I am certainly not alone with this issue.
