A U-verse Update Last Night?

I live in Northern Calif. Last night, 11/27/2012, at about 11:30 PM, a message came on my TV from ATT stating that there was an update available. It said that if I was watching live TV, or a recording, they would be turned off while updating. I was watching a movie that was close to being over, and didn't want to miss the ending. I chose the option of "wait 3 hours". Strange only two options, do it now, or wait 3 hours. After the movie was over, I turned off the TV and headed for bed. Today I thought there might be a message or something about the update when I turned on the TV. There was nothing.

Anyone know about any updates that were pushed out yesterday? I can't find any info.

Local, or specific to Uverse TV? Nothing here in Chicago, using (only) Uverse Internet (IPDSLAM)...

My TV boxes both rebooted a couple of times each just before midnight on Tuesday night also. I didn't see the the on-screen message, though. Figured it must be a firmware update they were pushing.

I just got a message about an update as well (1am 12/05/2012). Although it was on the second STB, not the main one. I dont notice anything different, must be background stuff they updated

It may be tiny, but it is BRIGHT. I can make shadow puppets on the wall across the room from it.

The blue light only stays on if the box is connect to a HDTV. U-Verse CS said the blue light lets you know if you connect to the HDMI port. I replied this was not the case before the update. CS said it was part of the update. He didn't know what other features were included. If you have a regular TV the blue light never comes on.

One thing I've noticed since this update. The rewind is acting weird. When I click the rewind button twice and then stop it where I want it, it jumps forward. Some times I have to click it a second or third time to get to where I want it. It never did that before. Fast forwarding seems to be ok.

Yeah, it's instant unless some other TV providers! Isn't it great?

The other option would be to keep the red lens of your red-blue 3d glasses in front of the blue led.

I was talking how bad U-Verse would change channels. Try changing the HD channels. I never seen such terrible video quality in my life.

The faceplate on the boxes just pops off. You could easily take it off, remove the LED, and reinstall the faceplate.

I find U-verse channel changing to be the best and fastest there is. However, the HD PQ is a whole other story.

Opinion of U-verse HD quality vary greatly; however, other than the message from this poster, I have read no messages from people complaining about the speed of changing channels on U-verse. This is why the comments from this poster are so confusing.

I have had DirecTV, Dish Network and cable TV. My experience is that there is no comparison of the speed of changing channel on U-verse with the other TV providers. U-verse blows the other TV providers away when it comes to the speed at which you can change channels.
