I tried a search, but came up with no results... for existing customers of both ATT (DSL and Phone) and DirecTV, does bundling these services restart the clock on my 2 year commitment?

No, but it does renew you on a 12 month agreement as part of the (for now) virtual bundle. This was also being discussed in the thread "directv at&t deals"

sorry I can't link yet.

I just got off the line with both At&T and directv. If you call at&t, ask for billing, they know what's going on.

It seems I would be eligible for a $5.00 opt-in credit per month if I also had At&t's long distance service for an additional $4.00 per month. My current long distance costs with Power Net Global, are usually under $2.00 per month. So, at best it might save me $1.00 a month if I signed up for the package deal with At&t. If they add taxes and other charges, it would probably cost the same.
I'm sticking with my current set up, At&t local calling, dsl and Directv
