AT&T U-Verse DVR 'Hack'
Users getting around one-DVR per home rule
When AT&T began offering customers in San Antonio U-Verse TV service over "Project Lightspeed"
, they were only doling out one DVR per customer. If a customer had a second (or third) TV, AT&T gave them another DVR as a receiver, but just disabled the recording functionality. Engadget
and the U-Verse users website
explore how customers were cracking open their systems to re-enable the DVR functionality. Calling this a "hack"
seems generous - users simply have to apparently re-connect a hard-drive.
