DVR Capacity Question/Concern

DVR Capacity Question/Concern

I just spoke with someone at ATT U-verse support regarding my DVR.  I have had the U450 package since I signed up several years ago and now I see that customers are receiving 500GB capacity boxes while I am still stuck with my 160GB device.  The technician that I spoke with told me that there would be a $105 upgrade fee to get a higher capacity box.  I have read in some of the messages here that there is a $49 or $50 fee and am wondering which is correct.  Has anyone had a similar experience?  I am thinking that if I am going to have to pay ATT to get the same equipment as a new customer, I would be better off just cancelling and going with Directv's Genie DVR that has 1 terabyte of storage.

Re: DVR Capacity Question/Concern

Morgan,

 

I came to the site today to find out the same information, I am also a U450 customer with HD and getting a new TV, my DVR is 4 years old and was wondering if I would be charged to upgrade, I really don't feel like calling customer service and playing the I will cancel or asking for customer retention. I do have HDMI and audio issues but would rather just get a new larger self install dvr than go through all the steps ( I have tried many times). If you can help I would appreciate it

 

Thanks

Alan

Re: DVR Capacity Question/Concern

I actually just created a new thread about this exact issue since I didn't see this one first. I'd love to get some help with avoiding this fee as it appears KevinWK80 did. I've got U300 and Max Plus internet as I mentioned in my thread and I've been a Uverse customer for over 3 years.

For a faster responce I would recommend that you send a Private Message to the ATTU-verseCare Community Specialist team.  One of the specialists will respond to your PM shortly.  Please look for the flashing envelope at the top right of the page for your response from a team member.

 

They don't read every post so this will insure you receive a responce since you are contacting them directly.
