Here is a clip from a May 20 AT&T Press Release:
Customize More U-verse Total Home DVR Settings. The U-verse DVR allows you to record up to four programs at once on a single DVR — a capability unmatched by cable providers. This feature prevents most recording conflicts, but with Series Priority, you can also prioritize all of your household’s scheduled recordings. The new Keep at Most feature lets you select how many episodes of a recorded series are stored on your DVR, and allows you to store a recording until the date you select. With Series Delete, you can delete all recordings of a series with one click of the remote control.
Since these are changes to the core functionality of Mediaroom, we will likely get them here with the next Mediaroom update (whenever that is). Here is what I have found out about the new release:
- The Series Priority screen allows you to highlight a series recording and move it up, down or to the top of the priority list.
Keep at Most
- Options of 1,2,3,5,7, or 14 episodes.
- When you press the LAST button, the channel changes to the last channel viewed and a "Recent" panel pops up showing the last 5 channels viewed. You can arrow through the recent channels and see a PIP.
- Easily add channels to favorites listing (not sure what will be different)
This is everything I know about the new release so I won't be able to answer any questions about how it works. It has only been introduced to a few cities since the end of May.
