    I don't have an AVR so I couldn't test that function.

    Well, the first game I checked is missing the last 4 minutes. I thought yesterday how what was mentioned above would work. The guide info will not change to know the game has passed its window so unless it automatically adds time to live events this won't work. Bad news there. For now I'll just record the event scheduled to follow a game until they add this feature. Hopefully they'll add it.

    For those that actually have the box.
    Are you able to receive out of market RSNs or just the ones specific to your market?
    Is there a "sports pack" where you can get all of the RSNs?

    Only RSN’s in my market. I wish there was a sports pack similar to DirecTV.

    Three things are holding me back.
    1. The uncertainty of the product.
    2. No Sports Pack.
    3. No integration of "off air" antenna.

    My one month of AT&T TV Now has ended and I can no longer access the box without a subscription. With AT&T TV & AT&T TV Now there is no sports pack you get the RSNs based on your billing address zip code. The RSNs available match what you would get on D* when available.

    Currently there is no sports pack like on D*.

    I got a Jetstream Android TV device from Walmart to replace my slow *** Amazon Fire TV stick for my bedroom TV (testing the damn Osprey got me hooked on a few Android TV features.)

    Anyway the remotes that come with the AT&T TV device can be paired with other Android TV devices and function properly. However some buttons (like Guide, List, ... , Ch +/-, dash) won't work (this may vary on device) the diamond button which is used for the apps menu on the AT&T TV device has other functions in other apps (i.e. in the Sling TV app it will bring up the top info bar and the bottom bar to pause the program during live TV)

    If ATT TV gets more support for TVE, the channels DVR app would be a great solution. Won't fix #2 but I have to imagine these things are coming to the service as it's suppose to replace Uverse and Directv.

    All of a sudden some of my scheduled series recordings have stopped recording everything on every channel showing the series and are only recording new episodes on said channel.

    How long do you have to return the device & stop service if you're not happy?

    I don't remeber if it was here where someone asks how long a buffer when pausing live tv. I confirmed yesterday it is an hour.

    Has anyone that actually has the box taken it to a different market?
    If so, what locals did you receive?
    Has anyone tried to use a VPN?

    Anyone else experiencing slow speeds while connected by ethernet? When i'm connected with an ethernet cord my speeds are around 20 Mbps, and when connected by wifi it's around 150 Mbps. I switched cords with my apple tv which pulls down my normal speed of around 215 Mbps and that still didn't make a difference on the C71KW box.

    No sorry, I'm actually pulling the max in for the 10/100 port on this thing.

    Just curious how the box/AT&T TV service is still going for those that are subscribing? Any new details or changes that can be shared would be great!

    After a month of use one of the things I am noticing is that there's a limit of amount of recordings per series. The limit is 31 episodes. Maybe this was mentioned before and I missed it but don't like that limitation.

    Does anyone know how to factory reset the remote clearing the codes out for tv/sound bar? I can’t find a way to clear the codes out of the remote. Also. How to use the remote in RF mode?
