Typically you will want the DVR, which I assume is the "box" you are referring to, connected by the "stuff". It is there so it has a direct connection to the AT&T residential gateway (RG). Since its the main work horse of the whole home DVR system its best it be connected directly to the RG with a patch cable. Now you could run a Cat 5e or 6 cable from the RG to the family room and connect it that way if you want. The DVR must be connected hard wired as it's not an option to connect it wirelessly.

If the RG is in the office and the DVR is in the office and that's a least used TV, you have the best set up to get the most out of your Uverse experience.
If you have a 4 HD stream profile, the 4th HD stream must be watched on a non-DVR box. Putting the DVR on a frequently used TV can interfer with that option.
