    I have (2) Roamio's with 3TB drives. I have switched to ATT but want to be able to replay the many recordings I have. Can I cancel the service and use TIVO for Amazon and Netflix and replay or do I have to keep the account.

    If you cancel service you can still play back existing recordings. Everything else is disabled.

    And that includes Netflix, Amazon, etc. All you can do with a service-less TiVo DVR is play its existing recordings, viewed only via a monitor connected via the DVR's A/V outputs, and tune live TV absent any guide details beyond the last channel listing downloaded.

    Don't know what you mean by "replay," here. Nevermind; got it. Basically *just* "replay."

    Once you start to notice how horribly compressed and blocky the uverse picture is, you'll want to switch back, then you'll already have a TiVo :).

    Isn't AT&T's long-term plan to phase Uverse out?
