I’ve been beta testing the streaming box since receiving it a few weeks ago. Setup had plenty of hiccups; it initially crashed and had attempt setting up multiple times. Finally got it setup and connected to my WIFI network, but it would consistently loose connection. So I gave it a rest out of frustration.
I’ve tried multiple times to use since. The best is that it works fine for up to 5 - 10 minutes and then somehow crashes my entire WIFI network, i.e. all other devices that were connected to the network lose connectivity. This happens consistently. I’ve had to discontinue using to avoid this issue. As soon as I take the streaming box off my network, the network recovers all other devices can connect to the network.
I’ve received no communication from ATT and I even attempted to be proactive to connection with ATT without any luck. It would be easier for ATT to simply go with a Roku Streamkng Stick if this is the best the box will do.

I wasn't even invited to test it.I used the link to the page to request one about 2 weeks ago and got my box delivered yesterday.

I got my beta box today. Took a little while to set up. Like having numbers. Am able to get locals on the box. Wouldn't work on Roku. Picture seems sharper and easy to use. Also quicker.

I have my beta box but cannot figure out how to set it up. Does it need an Ethernet cord?
Does it plug into my internet modem?

WiFi or ethernet. Depends on your setup, either in a port on your cable modem or your router. HDMI cable to your TV. No different then any other similar type of streaming device.

Why would anyone volunteer to beta test this box for AT&T?
my reward to "beta test" dtvn for the past 2 1\2 years was $15. increase on a promotional package that claimed "price guarantee for life" (yeah yeah I didn't read the fine print). It's not like the box will be free after...???

Well you get to keep the box in the end although it's proprietary to DTVN. Nothing else to do? Just be a tester!

You get to keep the box. That may be plenty of incentive for many. I also wonder how many recipients of the device actually make meaningful reports to the beta group, as opposed to just keeping their new toy.

I sure provide comments. Have not seen much change though like they do with the commercial DTVN product
