Re: U-verse Mobile App for iPhone Update

This doesn't work for me.  All I get is "Receiver discovery failed.  There has been an issue communicating with the U-verse receiver.  Please try again.  If the problem persists, please go to www.att.com/uversesupport and search for the keyword 'Enabled'."

 

Well, I tried that and got nothing relevant.  Does anyone know what they're trying to tell me?

I got that error this afternoon and then it worked this evening.  Had to also do stuff on the receiver(s) that you want to control.

I'm getting that same message now, but I was able to control my U-verse receivers with my iPhone earlier this afternoon when I first download the update.  There is probably some temporary issue on the internal U-verse network right now. Hopefully, it will be resolved soon.

Re: U-verse Mobile App for iPhone Update

The only thing lacking is that the app cannot control the TV itself.

Yup, controlling the power and volume on the TV would be perfect. This thing responds faster than the receiver remotes. I've set up my iPhone and 3 receivers so far. All working great.

You would need an IR blaster to control the TV.
I se that it does not have a volume or mute button.

If you set an STB to control the volume and mute then link the STB to the app do you get a volume and mute button??

Now, we know one of the reasons we got to name our boxes on the TV. Smiley Wink

I'm no IT guy but............. If our STB's are on line, and we can access them from our on line devices, could accessing our recorded content from our devices be far off?

 

Just wishing out loud.

Re: U-verse Mobile App for iPhone Update

I was finally able to get this to work after some trial and error.  When I opened the app on my iphone I kept getting the "receiver discovery failed" message.  I went to the interactive menu on the STB and then to uverse enabled then to the uverse app for iphone/ipad and kept getting an error that I didn't have uverse high speed internet.  Huh?

 

Reset the STB via the menu and when it came up still received the discovery failed on my iphone.  Did a hard reset by unplugging the STB and let it come back up.  Ran discover again on my iphone and it found the STB but the buttons within the app would not work.  ERR!!

 

Then I remembered I had Buddy TV set up on my iphone and it has a remote feature also.  Deleted the Buddy TV app completely and the uverse app started working to control the STB.

 

There must have been a conflict between Buddy TV and the uverse app I'm assuming.  All boxes are connected and working now!!

 

Edit:  I just reloaded the Buddy TV app, logged in, and the uverse app still works as well as the Buddy TV app so who knows.

Re: U-verse Mobile App for iPhone Update

Oh boy can this be a fun app!!  I was in the garage tinkering and opened the app.  The wife was watching TV in the BR and I started changing channels, wait a minute then hit pause, then start, then changed the channel.  She came running out to the garage saying the TV was going haywire and to come look at it.Smiley Very Happy  I went in and acted like I was checking things out and told her it must be something she did because there was nothing wrong.Smiley Very Happy

 

She still has no clue what is happining......Smiley Very Happy  Mean I know but it sure was funny!!  Make me mad and I can get even and no one will know the difference!!Smiley Very HappySmiley Very Happy
