Yes, after you subscribe to a PPV event, you can schedule it to record on the DVR.

You should be able to record the concert, but because of who it is I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to not be recordable.

You could probably call and ask, but I doubt if you would get an accurate answer.  Not all of the CSRs have Uverse and so they may not even know about the PPV concert.

I have never paid for a PPV event with Uverse so I don't know if what the norm is, regarding recording them.  I do know that there are times when some movies on premium channels list that they can't be recorded, as well as pay VOD movies.  If you really like the Stones I say go ahead and pay for it and enjoy it.  The PPV is way cheaper than the nose bleed seats at the venue.  And you can have multiple people watching for that same $50.

My original question was could I record the PPV as I won't be home the night of the show. I don't want to order it then be told it can't be programmed to record or recorded live.

Unless something has changed recently, PPV events can be recorded:

Good question and it's not a clear answer. By default, all PPV events purchased with U-verse are free to record. There have been in the past certain events which are not recordable. This was not initiated by U-verse but rather a request from the owners of the content.

 

It does look like the e-support article wording has changed now and no longer mentions recording.

tuesrubie,

I just rented the Stones PPV on HD and after I paid, the option to record was available. It's in my "Scheduled Recordings" list. :-)

I called U-Verse CS and they said that show is not recordable. I"ll probally get a TIVO for a month to do this. Think that will work ?

That may, or may not, work well, or at all.  You would have to connect the TiVo to the STB via Coax or Composite and then somehow get the STB to use an IR blaster to turn the STB on and tune it to the correct channel at the time it needs to record.

 

I would be sure to do a test run on some other programs before depending on this.

TIVO won't work. So I bought the show though Yahoo for computer and iPhone. It's good for 30 days and has it's own application. If I was home tonight I would have gotten the show on U-Verse but with no DVR and no repeat performances that ruled it out. This show will be on torrent sites in a few days anyway. Thanks for all the advice here.

After seeing the no-longer-Rolling Stones on the 12/12/12 Concert for Sandy Relief, I'm glad they only did two songs so I didn't have to sit through any more of it.  Those guys should have hung it up 20+ years ago.  Mick Jagger looks like he's 150 and sound like he's dead.

Thanks for the threadcap and your postive note on the Stones, by the way the PPV was excellent.

The DVR recorded the concert for me.  But, now I'd like to burn it to a DVD.  Any idea how I do this?  I bought a DVD Recorder, but it won't let me finalize the disc after recording.
