Directly from AT&T: http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB117823&cv=820#fbid=DUvgy6K7J1V
If link is no good, go to AT&T's site, Wireless Support > Ask a Question > Update the Firmware for a Windows Phone 7 or 7.5 device
It would appear that many Windows Phone 7.5 phone models will get their upgrades in due time.

Has anyone actually received the Lumia 900 update to 7.8?
In this article AT&T states the following:
"Please note that update availability will be staggered at the beginning. If you have not received the update notification, please check again at a later date."
In my opinion this is marketing jargon for "we are not ready and need some more time".

Nop, no official update yet!!
Had called customer service, they were not sure about the exact status of deployment. Was told to update Zune and then check for updates, incase none, then just wait. No luck as yet!

I'm wondering if it might be awhile now. 7.8 is reputed to have serious issues regarding live tile updates:
AT&T might be waiting to make sure that the network won't get pounded as a result.

Never ever call customer care .... they have zzero knowledge about technology. They probably dont even know how windows phone looks like.
They always give some unwanted stupid suggestions like in ur case ... what the helll has zune update has to do with 7.8 update ... I had experienced similar thing 2 yrs back and stopped calling them again.

Well, 2-26 still nothing.
Checked my Zune for updates and it's OK.
BTW, ATT with Nokia Lumia 900.

In reading that thread there are a couple of failure modes that are not uniform for all users or apps, so this may not be a "live tiles are broken in 7.8" issue.
I'm sorry but I am hesitant to leap to such a general statement based on the statements made in that thread.
Edit: and of course there is nothing in that thread that implies 7.8 is being held up based on this issue. It's not. It's not even clear if the issue would be addressed in an update (as the MS poster clearly stated.)
