Depends on when Microsoft updates the software that runs on the Set top boxes & DVR's. Keep in mind, that the software that ATT runs, is the same that is used on other systems that use this platform.

As for mod's/monitor's, they do not have the pleasure to state that info, because it is privy to "For your eyes only/Internal knowledge, not to be released to the public".

I imagine the next platform change will be when Microsoft Blue OS comes out around 2014, since they just made a huge change when Win8 came out.

Thanks for your insight man. Can't wait for the updates.

By the way, aside from the forums mentioning them does att tell when they happen? I don't ever remember them notifiying through messages.

They never publicly pre-announce updates / improvements unless a Tier 2 releases a little "nugget of info," in passing.  We know of updates here way before AT&T ever releases public info on an improvement.  They update or add a feature, and if it is stable for a month or two THEN they do a press releas, announcing it.

 

THIS is the place to come to get scoops.  Folks look at stats on the U-Verse system and note any changes here.  A few folks noted that AT&T was testing additional streams (7 SD?) a few months ago.  This jibes with a "nugget leak" of increase in streams coming later this year.
