Ingress profile of 3SD/1HD?

Five days after new installation of VIP1225, I couldn't get two HD shows to record at the same time. So I looked for an answer in this forum. I found references to  ingress profiles of 2SD/2HD and 1SD/3HD, but nowhere a reference to 3SD/1HD. I then looked at my ingress profile, and it's 3SD/1HD. Why am I the only one I can find with that profile?

chefg2 - The second half of the equation is the max rate. On your browser go to http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_1_0
Under DSL line the first line - User rate - what are the two numbers - Also, the next line - Max user rate - What is the number?

chefg2 -
My first two are the same as yours & the third is only slightly higher - 45324 kbs.

I have 0/4 WAN.

Call in to get it changed. If they cannot do it, try again - ask for tier 2. If not successful you can PM the attcustomercare - http://forums.att.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage/tab/compose/note-to-user-id/192773

So I just learn to live with it, knowing that I'm "special"?

chefg2 - I do not understand your response & it appears you did not understand mine.

I am saying you need to ask att to change it. You can have 4 HD. Start wiyh a call in. If that does not work call again & ask for Tier 2. If that does not work send a PM here.

Do not give up.

Sorry, being new to this forum, I thought your response represented the official AT&T response, instead of being a private response.

No problem, just want to make sure you get all the HD you are entitled to.
Post your progress.

Though there are a few AT&T employees that post in here, this is a users forum and the majority of us are just users like yourself.

Talked to AT&T today, what I guess is called "Tier 1". The official explanation: "you are limited to 1HD/3SD because your residence is too far from the central office". Is that correct? Make any sense?

chefg2 - If you have a 32/5 reading on the first two numbers you provided, which you do. That should qualify you for 4HD.

Send a PM to attcustomer care using this link to get the experts involved. They can either get it done or provide a more detailed explanation.

Re: Ingress profile of 3SD/1HD?

Got a reply from Ryan to my PM, which I assume is what you call "Tier 2". He said the problem was fixed, and if it really wasn't, then to try "powercycling your receiver boxes". I tried multiple recording with HD, and am now up to 1SD/3HD. Quite an improvement. But nevertheless, I would still like to get the final HD.

 

I assume "receiver box" refers to my DVR, as opposed to the "modem" which redirects signals to the internet, phone, and TV. I interpret "powercycling" as basically unplugging the DVR for a minute, then replugging it in. The problem is that the DVR plug is plugged into a power strip at the back end of the cabinet under the TV. My recent major back surgery prevents me from getting on the floor and reaching in to the back of the cabinet. Is there any way of "recycling" using only the buttons on the front of the DVR? There is a sticker next to the power button that says "To restart, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds". I tried that before posting here with the initial problem, to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

chefg2 - No one can record 4 HD. The fourth recording must be SD. The fourth HD in the house - if you have 0/4 wan profile - must be watched on a non-dvr STB. This is why you install the DVR on the least watched TV.

 

Will the DVR pull out slightly? The power cord can be disconnected from the DVR end. It is on one end or the other (left or right).

Re: Ingress profile of 3SD/1HD?

OK, I'm now officially satisfied with 3HD recording, and I want to thank you for all your help. But my wife has one last question: why can't all inquiring questions. be answered by AT&T with "Tier 2" personnel, from the get-go? My only thought is that you would probably have to quadruple the size of the competent staff answering all the multitude of questions generated daily between the various uverse components (TV, internet, phone, wireless). I guess their internal analysis of this is that that cost far outweighs the estimated cost of lost customers who can't get the answers they need.

 

Thanks again.
