This would be fantastic, if it works. However, isn't it likely that the
data stream being sent from AT&T is encrypted?
Trey mentioned something in an earlier post about the DVR being able to

Windows shared drive or whatever it is called in the Windows world).
Trey, if you have a Windows machine you might see if this is true.
