U-Verse Realtime v184.108.40.206 is released.
The program (.exe installer) may be downloaded here.
If you have already installed v1.2.x.x, you can install this version on top of it and it will upgrade. Those versions will also auto-update to this new version.
U-Verse Realtime is a standalone program that can retrieve information from a typical residential installation of the AT&T U-Verse IPTV system. Some of the information displayed consists of VDSL line analysis, network interface data rates, DVR information, and STB channel and stream information. This program requires that your U-Verse Residential Gateway (the 2Wire 3800HGV) be running firmware version 220.127.116.11 only. Previous versions will not work with this program.
U-Verse Realtime v18.104.22.168 is the evolution of the previous program, 2WireRealtime. The new features added to UVerse Realtime expand its functionality beyond simply looking at statistics from the 2Wire 3800HGV router, so the program was renamed to better reflect its scope. 2WireRealtime will not auto-update to U-Verse Realtime, you must download the new installer.
A significant improvement in this version is the elimination of the requirement to be directly connected to the RG. Also, the large amount of IPTV traffic that was generated to the computer running U-Verse Realtime is no longer present.

I don't currently have another update in the works at the moment, I'm kind of debating what else to add. There's been a few requests for some things that I might try.

How about a way to check your service when you are away from home. To see if it is operating correctly. This would be hand to know if you are on vacation and have recordings scheduled. I don't know if this would be an infringement issue, but a way to remotely reboot your equipment would be cool too.

Funny you mention that.
I have toyed with the idea of a mobile application that would basically reflect some of the same service parameters. e.g. be able to see the channels/streams in use on your phone.
I have never written an Android application but that's where I might try to develop this.
As far as reboots, I could reboot the RG, but I don't think I can do anything with the STBs, there's simply no interface with them over the network.

Hm... a way to see what the kids are watching when you're not at home...

It means that you have no overhead on the 32/5 profile bitwise and should go back to 25/2 (to have headroom and probably avoid problems) if you are having any Uverse TV problems (not Netflix). Surprising that 39M is a problem on 35/2, post the bit loading page to see if you might have a bridge tap affecting you.
Please NO SD stretch-o-vision or 480 SD HD Channels
Your Results May Vary, In My Humble Opinion

The bitloading graph doesn't look bad. It looks typical for your distance ... no bridge tap that I can see.
I would say your Netflix streaming issue is pointing more towards a routing/Internet problem than a line problem.
Your line parameters from your other post show that your line isn't ideal for the 32/5 profile, but it's very close so there probably won't be very much of a problem. However, you may want to have them lower you to the 25/2 profile just to avoid any issues. But I think there's only a marginal change that would improve or solve your Netflix issue.

New channel database released, version 2010-07-26-1841-001, 698 channels.
For reference, here is the list of all local markets that are now in the database:
If your local market is not on this list and you would like it to be, please post the channel numbers and multicast IP addresses, and your zip code and I will get them in the database.

You probably have a bridge tap on that line. It's causing the abnormally high attenuation in the upper frequencies. Also, your downstream attenuation value doesn't really match the upstream power level, which is another indication that there's abnormal attenuation.
Because of the line conditions, your line can't really handle the assigned 25/2 profile either.
I would have the line group (I&R) come look for and remove the bridge tap. It would bring the line into good working order by improviing the max rate and allowing the 25/2 profile to run correctly.
