I'm planning to test U-Verse for 30 days.  The slow channel changing and loss-of-signal during rain is the main purpose for checking out U-Verse.


My question is, my family has several hours of recordings on each (3) DVR.  Will I lose these recordings if I suspend DTV for 30 days?  I am out of my two year contract, so suspending/cancelling is not a problem.


Anything else I should be aware of, if U-Verse doesn't work out.

Read all the posts in this thread.



I think your recordings are safe unless the hard drives fail in the receivers.

Your recording are safe for a little bit if you disconnect the coax cable from the DVR BEFORE suspending. When the authorization times out, you won't be able to access the recordings.
