I'm a new customer and started with U200. 1 DVR & 3 STB's
I just upgraded to U300.
I was wondering if I need to upgrade my DVR.
I think the current one has only 175 HD min. I'm worried about running out of space.
I had heard that they do make larger cap. DVR's for U300 & U450
OR, Can I purchase an external Hard Drive to connect to the DVR?

My name is Morgan, I'm one of the U-verse Community Specialists. Here is a document that has a section describing the different DVR models and their storage capacity. I'm going to send you a private message that will land in your inbox to discuss the options for upgrading your DVR unit. Thank you!

aviewer; I think you fail to grasp the whole concept here.
AT&T would be the 1st party, The customer would be the 2nd party, a third party would be NetFlicks, Amazon, Hulu..........etc.
I don't see a way to download a movie /show to my PC's HDD. Which is way one would need a third party.
My original intent was to either have a larger capacity DVR or use a third party HDD by W.D.
I know they make external HDD for Comcast, Dish Network, and other platforms. But I D K about ATT.

For what this may be worth, my own setup is probably a bit different from most others. I channel my DVR through a VCR/DVD recording unit before it reaches my TV. As such, the program being viewed on the TV is directly coming from the VCR/DVD.
By having the DVR mated to the VCR/DVD, I am able to transfer my recorded DVR programs by dubbing them either onto a VHS or DVD (yes I still use VHS) for permanent copies. As another poster noted, the DVR hard drive is only a temporary form of storage since it is owned by AT&T -- and because it is essentially a computer.
And, as we all know, computers are prone to breaking down, need to be replaced every few years, etc. So if you can do something like what I do, it is easy to play the programs back from the DVR as you're recording it on DVD or VHS, if you have that type of equipment.
