How do you know when you get an update? I can't do that on mine yet. I'm in Connecticut.

Here is what I know so far.  I happened to be up when this update hit here last night.

 

Got a nice screen that said "Hello" then it went back to normal.

 

The guide is different.  Looks 'cleaner' if you will.  You can now also go 'back' and get on the channel name, press ok, and it will bring up a listing of what is coming on for that one channel for the day.

 

You can erase DVR recordings from any STB in the house now.  But, you still can only pause live TV from the main DVR.  I believe the ability to pause from all TV's will be rolled out as part of THDVR Phase 3.

 

Media Share is not part of this update.....yet.  From what my insiders tell me, the Austin/Central Texas UVerse market should see media share no later then 6/23 of this month.

 

Thats all I have seen so far.  Not sure when this will be rolled out to other areas yet.

Good info txskeets!  Yes I also would like to see screenshots but I wouldn't even know how to upload them.

 

I'm in Indy, IIRC it was about 3-4 weeks (is that right?) before we saw the initial/Phase 1 rollout.  Can someone correct me on that?

As to the guide, you could do that for a few months click on the channel and get the whole day's listings (and much more, prob all 14 days, but I  didn't want to do all that clicking-got 3 days ahead).  There was rumored by the techs at uversuers.com that there would be a totally 'new' guide w/the phase 2 download, as others have posted, a screenshot would be nice. :smileywink:

Hopefully more people will come in and post that they have phase 2 along with at least one screen shot.  Of course I don't know if the screen will look any different than the one on the dvr.  Oh well, patience patience patience.

I will try to post some screens when I get back home.  I had to head into San Antonio for the next couple of days where they dont have this update yet.  Interesting.  Is the Austin area the only area to get this so far?

 Sadly, but yes...Hope they distribute the update soon. Im so excited. Although we still cant fast forward,rewind, pause, etc Live TV (phase 3), its another step forward into having a totally whole home DVR functionality which will definitely improve the U-verse experience.

 

The IPTV client version should be 1.6.3.3 now.

 

To see if your TV has the updated client version of Phase 2. Check system information in your Menu:

 

  •  If “System Info” shows 1.6.5686.1, then the receiver has the old or current 1.6.1.3 client.
  •  If “System Options” shows 1.6.25075.1, then the receiver has the new 1.6.3.3 client. (Phase 2) 

 

 

 If you are in Austin but still not getting the Phase 2,  reboot your STB. If still not getting an update call 888-332-7597 to have AT&T do a soft update push to your STB to get the Phase 2 update. 

 

 

 

 

 Happy viewing!

Running tests in small area to see what problems are in release that do not show up in lab testing conditions. So if you do not have it yet have patience.

Here in DFW, no THDVR p2 as of 730a 6/10.  Had some sort of DVR update after a reboot, but did not enable remote dvr function.
