Re: New Firmware Push to U-verse Receivers

I guess I got the new firmware sometime yesterday. I noticed that the blue light on my dvr was off yesterday when I powered down the box.

Houston - inner loop River Oaks area. I rec'd update a couple of days ago on my DVR 2.2.28163.20 but it hasn't pushed to the set-top boxes. Tried a soft reset, didn't force update to secondary boxes. May try a hard boot. Love the changes, especially accessing CC easier, multiple favorites, and On-Demand queue; some functions are a little slower though.

How are you getting to favorites? There is no "view favorites" option when you hit ENTER........... Are you having to go the long way through the MENU? There is an option for "favorites lists" when you hit ENTTER, but it doesn't do anything........

Re: New Firmware Push to U-verse Receivers

Yes, we received this yesterday for both the VIP 1200 STB and 2250, and everything is faster. I haven't seen any flicker while browsing the on screen guide (etc.) or had the text spontaneously change size.

 

The Hide channels feature is almost without delay while paging through them, plus a user can finally type in channel numbers for direct access! (To hide the advertising!)

 

Closed captioning access only requires pressing the Enter button to select it from the pop out menu!, but you'll still need to change the closed captioning for different languages.

 

Thank you so very much AT&T (and possibly subcontracted) STB software developers. Smiley Very Happy

 

P.S. AT&T carries the SAP audio of certain channels i.e. NOAA weather radio where and when available if you change the audio to Español!

How do you get the update on the other STBs. Only my DVR got it this morning.

There isn't any view favorites option anymore, they chaged it to Favorites list, and you don't have to go the long way around to setup any lists. Selecting the Favorites lists you created are the way to view them now. It does work when selecting a list while viewing the guide, and the selected named list is displayed when browsing using the arrow button method. The default list is MY FAVORITES.

If your STBs don't update immediately, it could happen within three hours later. Optionally you could unplug them wait 30 seconds and cold boot your STBs.

It's been about 5 hrs now. I did unplug the STBs and that didn't work either.

Sometimes you might have to wait up to a day before a reattempted update. You could send a private message to  ATTCustomerCare or call AT&T directly as higher level tech support has in the past have manually updated devices.

 

Last resort is replacement of those STBs.
