Just Upgraded to HD...

Finally bought an HDTV and upgraded the $10 charge to HD channels. Last night, I was recording ONE show on HD but was UNABLE TO WATCH ANOTHER HD CHANNEL! I could watch a SD channel. Seriously? It's THIS restrictive? Am I not setting up something properly? Halp!

Re: Just Upgraded to HD...

First off, what does it state under Options > System Options > System Information > System resources, for Streams, Bandwidth Cap, Egress Profile?

I tried to install it, but as usual with Windows, there was an error. I'm going to call AT&T and hopefully get someone who speaks English.

Re: Just Upgraded to HD...

How many recordings/tv shows were you trying ot watch at once?  According to your profile, you shoud be able to record 3 hd shows at once and watch up to 4. In order to watch the 4th HD channel, you'll need to be watching it from another box in your house.

Re: Just Upgraded to HD...

I was recording ONE program. I tried to change the channel and watch a different HD program; an error mssg said "the HD something something was busy." I live alone, and my other DVR was off. As usual, I can't get to a live human being in tech support. Anyone know a number to bypass all the 'press this, say that' stuff?

Re: Just Upgraded to HD...

buckeyeba -As posted above, you should be able to watch more HD simultaneously.

It always is worth trying a simple reboot. YOu also want to male sure your boxes are in synch bt doing it in order.

Pull the ac plug on the RG, DVR and STB.
Plug in the RG wait for green lights.
Plug in the DVR and wait for picture.
Plug in the other STB.
After this, you may be out of the woods.

Re: Just Upgraded to HD...

What version of Windows are you running on your computer? The software mentioned was actually written by a member of the forum, not ATT, and it is known that there is a issue with one part of the software that installs with the utility, not being compatible with Windows 8.

Sorry for the install error.  UV Realtime requires at least Windows XP with service pack 3.

 

Glad your problem is fixed, but if you would like to install UV Realtime in the future, please install XP service pack 3 first.

 

You may want to upgrade to service pack 3 anyway, since it fixes many security bugs.
