No, that isn't functional right now at all.

They are not functional for Uverse. You can try charging your cell phone or any other USB powered item with your STB.

The STB's are off the shelf Motorola units and were not made specifically for Uverse and they came with a USB port. Will AT&T allow USB transfers to be activated in the future? We don't know.

I can tell you that U-Verse could use a little more training for their tech support folks.

I called with an unrelated issue and while waiting for the DVR to reboot I asked about the USB port.

She said that I could hook up my PC and watch whatever I was watching on my laptop on my TV.

She also said that I could control the menus with a USB keyboard.

 

No wonder there's confusion. The people you call for answers provide false information!

This is my first week with U-Verse and I'm feeling a little less than confident.

First-line support is fairly clueless, but I experienced similar cluelessness on DirecTV, Dish, and Comcast.  They're not the people to ask if the question is even slightly complex.

You beat me to it.

 

As far as I have seen, this remote is the only thing that will work on the USB. I have heard, and dont know if there is any truth to it, that there is a little LCD clock that you can or could get for it. As for the RF remote, just an FYI. I have only seen one of these working, and it seemed to only work correctly up to about 30' away through a regular non insulated sheetrock wall. Might have just been the one, but that is all I have seen, so thats all I could compare.

Wow, that's sad if she told you that.
