We also had an outage today and it reminded me that we are unable to watch recorded content when uverse is down through no fault of our own. Why is that?? It's not like the recordings are in the cloud, because they are sitting locally on my dvr. So why can't I watch them? It seems like the perfect fix for someone whose uverse goes down to at least have acess to their reco...

Thanks so much. As soon as I get all the parts, I'll be trying it out. LT

Right now, my dvr is in a back bedroom and a wireless box is hooked up to the main TV. I want to swap the two receivers. There are no more sockets left on my RG, so I plan to get an ethernet switch and plug to the 2 computers into the switch and plug the switch into the RG. That will free up one socket for the dvr. I'll run a nice long ethernet cat5e cable to the dvr. I d...

Thanks again. I'll let you know when I get all the bits I need.

Ok, so I'll get a component to hdmi converter box and use one of the many component cables I have lying around. That'll work, right? Thanks again. LT

Ok, if I get a component (into dvr) to hdmi (into existing switch) cable and use my existing switcher, will that work? I want to continue using the switch so I don't have to unplug/replug when I want to change sources. Thanks again. LT

Thanks for the reply. One thing I failed to mention is that my series info is still intact - just my recordings are gone. So, you're saying that the dvr is sensitive to the hdmi being switched? Why would that be? LT

I've got two things going on here and they may or may not be related. A few weeks ago, I started using a computer monitor that is capable of 720p hd as the output to my dvr. It's old and only has a VGA connector, so I bought a VGA to HDMI cable that included an output for sound. I'm also using a 5 port HDMI switch to channel various video to the monitor like the dvr, a ro...

Surprisingly, at least by past performance, uverse seems to be working fairly well. A tech came out the next morning and spent his time working up the street. When he was finished he said our wiring in the box was loose. He tightened it up and our line faults disappeared. I had two minor instances of pixelation and a wireless box rebooting itself. Both problems were short...

I gave up and called for a service guy. He showed up just as I discovered that the wireless tvs were getting live tv just fine. As soon as he started looking, it started working. AAAARRRRRGGGH! He did discover that we have a bad line coming in and went to check the box up the street. He's made a ticket for someone to come and check that box. The problem is either there or...

Well, I tried what you suggested and it's only made it worse. Now, the dvr will not boot up. It's stuck at the blue ATT Uverse with swirly circle. It's been about 15 minutes on this try after I rebooted it again after 10 minutes. I tried another wired receiver and it's also stuck in the same place. I'll try resetting the RG again, but I'm not hopeful.

Thanks, I'll try that later. My RG is an NVG589. Do you have any knowledge of them being heat sensitive? I'm in south Florida and it's in the 80's here and I refuse to turn on the ac so early. It appears that the box only has vents on the top and it seems pretty warm there. It's not in a confined space, but I think it's overheating. I turned on the tv (using a wireless bo...
