U-Verse Realtime v188.8.131.52 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 184.108.40.206 only. Previous versions will not work with this program.
U-Verse Realtime v220.127.116.11 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.

Can someone post a "Idiot's Guide" for this tool, i.e. what should we be looking for (other than the color coded numbers) as possible issues?
Someone mention something about their PHY rate and SNR but what determines a "good" score and what a "bad" one?
What is a "good" Bitloading graph supposed to look like?
BTW, below are mine..

Your installation looks textbook -- nothing wrong with it at all.
The documentation included with U-Verse Realtime (Start Menu -> All Programs -> U-Verse Realtime -> ReadMe) contains full explanations of each parameter, including the proper values that each should read.

Are you talking about the iNID (2Wire 3812V + 2Wire i38HG)? If so, the tool does not yet specifically support it.
I will update it to fully support the iNID if someone with a 2 line iNID installation is willing to pull HTML source code off the unit and send it to me.

The 3801 appears to be just a 3800 with a newer HPNA chipset, and a slight redesign of the voice ports (now only a single 2-line port instead of two ports). If it's running the same firmware, version 18.104.22.168 should work with it.
Note that I'm about to release 22.214.171.124, which currently is specific to the 3800 and the 3600. That version may not work with the 3801 unless I add specific support for it.

That would be awesome. I'll delay the release of 126.96.36.199 and add 3801 support to it.
Please download 188.8.131.52 from the link in the first post in this thread and try it.
Please pull up the following pages from your 3801. For each web page, do the following:
Click the "Page" pull-down in the top right, select Save, and save as type "Webpage, HTML only".
Right-click in the page and select Save Page As, and save as type "Web Page, HTML only".
I need the following pages:
Once you have all the pages saved, zip them up into a .zip file and e-mail then to me. I have sent you my e-mail address in a private message.

So I was thinking about the sensor on the new LCD and ruled that out because the picture freezes while recording and the tv off. When I playback I can see all the times it froze. Now, tonight it has froze around 10 times in 30 minutes. I noticed this time when the picture froze I went and channeled up and then down as fast as the remote will change the station and the picture was unfroze. Also when I channeled up that channel was working fine. I think my coax signal is fine as it's at 112 and 31db. I can't think of anything in my house that is on a timer set for around 8PM still too light outside for any street lights etc.
