    I got both of our 10 year old SV2000's working with Uverse. No IR Blaster needed, the signal from the Tivo is plenty strong enough. The only potential problem is the modem. The Series I modem has always been a bit twitchy and it is somewhat unreliable with the Uverse phone line. Installing Turbonet and using the internet to dial out fixes it.

    Of course, the 5 minute wakeup recordings are still needed, but I'm working on a cute fix for that.

    Currently with Comcast and very anxious to move to U-Verse - but not without my TiVo. I'm hooked on HD though and my Series 2 has been collecting dust for 2 years now. I understand there is no hope of TiVo HD or Series 3 working with U-Verse, but has there been any rumblings or rumors about a TiVo/AT&T partnership in IPTV land?

    what I found that works well (at least for me, YMMV) is to use a flashlight to locate the IR receiver window on the front of the Uverse STB and position the IR blasters both above and below it, and tape them to the STB.

    I too will be dealing with U-Verse in the near future. I have a Series 2 HD and a Series 2. Right now, I'm planning on using the Series 2 with U-Verse and the Series 2 HD with an antenna.

    If there is any way to get the Series 2 HD to get HD programming from U-Verse, I too would be interested in how.

    Your plan on the series 2 with U-verse and the HD with OTA sounds good Captain Joy and is what I'll probably do if I buy a new Premiere.

    The landscape hasn't changed (that I'm aware of) in the past 5 months since this thread was last updated. There's no way to get an HD programming from U-Verse to a TiVo.

    Since when is there a series 2 HD TIVO? I have a series 3 HD TIVO and a series 2 Dual Tuner, but I don't think there is such a thing as a HD series 2.
    Never mind getting Uverse HD content to it

    Probably means Series 3 HD, which usung it for antenna, and the actual Series 2 for Uverse is all that can be done.

    I just wanted to update this thread to what I just found out with AT&T uverse.

    The Tivo Series 3 will not work with Uverse. It might work if you don't want to utilize the HD signal, but if you want HD then it won't work. I did some research on this before and found many conflicting threads and opinions so decided to try it. Turns out the Series 3 has no inputs other than co-axial, ethernet, or usb. The output of the AT&T uverse box is HDMI, component, RCA or co-axial. If you use the co-axial output, you don't get HD quality.

    Neither will the S4 Premiere or PXL.

    None of the HD models can control a box. You can fully run a Series 2 on Uverse though.

    I love my Uverse and works perfectly with the one Tivo we have in the living room. The Uverse DVR is not bad either and we actually can record and watch shows on any of our 3 other tv with the uverse DVR. I made the change from Time Warner to Uverse a month ago and cannot be happier and for those who are looking to make the switch make sure you get the Uverse Cashback coupon rebate from AT&T just google it or you can find the link from any Coupon sites such as rickscouponpicks.com on their uverse coupon code promo section or from couponmom or couponcabin. hope it helps.

    Months have gone by since this last post. How has Uverse been working with TiVo lately? Our street is going to try to access Userve, but it's useless to me if it won't work with our TiVos...and I won't give up my TiVo... :)

    Things have not, and will not change on how Tivos work with Uverse. That is to say the Series 1 and Series 2 units continue to be compatible with Uverse. This is because they are capable of controlling the Uverse set top box, and receiving/recording the output. The Series 3 and Series 4(Premiere, etc) lack this capability, and are hence, incompatible with Uverse.

    Just got uverse yesterday. Comcast pushed me over the edge.

    Everything went smoothly, but setting up TIVO was a bit of a challenge. The IR Blasters weren't working... One

    I had two boxes to set up, both series 2, and both uverse boxes were Cisco ISB7005. I tried Scientific Atlanta, which I had read on this site or another. One box worked, but the other only worked inconsistently - it would change to the wrong channel or not change at all. Very strange.

    Then I tried using Motorola. Worked like a charm on the 2nd box. So now I've got 2 of the same tivo's connected to two of the same Cisco Uverse boxes using different methods...

    Anyway, I know it's an old thread, but it's the one that I found and still pretty relevant. Good luck all.
