Thanks for the mini-review, Eric. Given the impending launch of the
HD-PVR device, and that I'm a very unhappy Comcast customer, Uverse is
sounding more tempting. This is the first actually really good
comments I've read about them. Most others I have talked to, as
early-adopters, were having all kinds of outage issues.
You probably won't run into this since it sounds like you only have
one HD set, but does anyone else know if they've improved on the
number of simultaneous HD streams that can be played? If I'm not
mistaken, it's still only one. Which still rules it out for me, as I
would like to be able to watch HD in the livingroom and (hopefully,
Hauppauge willing...) record component on the backend.
