I am in 60510 (Batavia, IL). Just got U-verse. Still looks like Phase 1 here. Any ideas on when P2 hits? How about P3? Would love to have pause/rewind live TV like I did w/Dish!

But it may just be doing the normal disaster recovery process... We'll see...

It would be cool if we got it here in Mich today, but I've waited this long I can survive a few more days.  I'm just glad to hear its rolling out in the first place.

I have a feeling we'll get it anywhere between late Thursday night-early Saturday morning.

People should be constantly vigilant on what the service is lacking... Like 5.1 surround sound and the Media Share issues. Not only they are adding recording functionality to the regular receivers, the update also includes fixes on some issue that are usually tackled heavily on forums about U-verse.

 

It may be too early, but AT&T will soon be gathering data from customers about what is next to be added for Phase 3. But adding new channels to the lineup is another thing...

The update just came down the Pipe here in Green Bay, WI.  Looks pretty nice so far.  I was able to switch the Digital Audio selection immediately over to Surround and we've got 5.1 over HDMI now.  I'll play more tomorrow.

What I wonder is, why is AT&T stretching out the updates (Phase 1, 2, & 3).  I know that if they can do one, they could have done all of them at once.  If the Equipment is capable of handling it (it must be or they couldn't do ANY upgrades with downloads), and the Coders know what they are doing, why does AT&T have to act like they have Apple's management, and create so much drama over a long period of time.  I would think they would want to do it as soon as possible in order to attract the most customers away from competetors.  But, people probably don't pay real close attention to the advertisements before converting.  After all, some here didn't find these features were not available until after they subscribed.

Because the whole system will explode (crash).  They tried a major years ago all on the same day to everyone, and brought everything to a halt!  Some big football game on as well, if I recall...no Internet or TV.

 

Believe me, YOU don't want a repeat of that! :smileywink:

Thanx for the quick reply demund...Funny, I was actually waiting for a tech to pick up the phone while I was typing and once connected, I explained what I was looking for and she didn't even have a clue about ANY updates at all.  I was like "thank you" and just hung up...Cheers.

Well, more new news for me...While I was on the phone earlier, the girl must have tried to push it through, I went downstairs to my main box and turned on the tv and had the "gears" showing.  After waiting about 10 mins, restarted and BAM, there it is under the menu options.  Yeah for me...Thanx again.  Robert

You mean the surround sound function? Good for you... It usually comes in after a while, just after getting the new guide and recording feature part of the update.

Yeah, I knew I had to have a little patience, but 6 days was starting to make me nervous after ALL the issues I've had with customer service and 20 phone calls later trying to get my old phone number from Time warner ported over.  It was nice to get some direct help today from Tier 2.

I'm as anxious as the next customer but... You've got to have faith in this Company. I believe they know how to handle an update. Not creating drama. IMHO :smileywink: At least it's in Wisconsin now. Packerland (G.B.) Now if it would just work south....

Literally updating right now in West St. Louis County (Ellisville).  My daughter came in and said "There's an update for our tv?" and I rolled over and hit "OK".  7% complete.
