    I just got the AT&T Uverse service installed in my home. We have 2 standard
    tvs and 1 Media center computer with receivers. Everything works with the
    media center computer except the program guide. Vista Media Center is not
    programmed to pull the UVerse guide.

    I'm wondering a couple things.

    Is anyone else is having the same issue?
    Have you found a solution for this issue?
    I have a MCE remote and was wondering if there is a way to program the guide
    button to pull up the guide from the receiver and not media center.

  5. If its IPTV it will have a guide and a dvr, but not sure if that guide will
    work with MCE.

    I have the same Uverse installation and was wondering how you got the tv
    tuner to work. I had to use the S-Video output of the set top box to my TV
    tuner input but I could never get the MCE to recognize the remote.

    Since it wouldn't recognize the remote, I couldn't change the channels. I
    understood that no television signal can be accessed without the set top box
    so I never tried using the MCE tuner.

    I have two MCE Extenders that rely on changing the channels as the computer
    is in a different room.

    Could anyone please explain how the MCE would change the channel while
    connected to the output of the set top box? Perhaps I'm not clear on the
    concept. When I had Comcast, the tv signal came through without using the
    set top box - though MCE tuner would decode only the basic service channels.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Same issue. the remote control for my MC won't work on my Motorola Uverse
    box. also guide isn't there for Uverse @ all yet. Maybe Microsoft won't
    acknowledge IPTV yet cause AT & T is so in with yahoo but I wish MS would get

    Zap2it is the one who supplies the guide and they are rolling it out now, as
    I already have the Uverse guide for my area. As for the remote not working
    AT&T or Motorola might be able to shed some light on how to get it working
    or at least should be made aware of the problem.

    I was so excited when AT&T announced they were going to offer video and then
    they spoiled it with Uverse being over copper.

    this *almost* sounds like a debounce issue. do a search for MCE
    debounce on Bing or Google - there is lots of info on this. it
    sounds like the remote for you SA box has this debounce issue (like
    some universal remotes).
