U-verse DVR gets an upgrade, increased functionality

AT&T is rolling out several AT&T U-verseTV DVR enhancements and adding new functionality to the U-verse YP.COM TV app for all U-verse TV customers over the coming weeks, including the ability to call the local pizza shop and limit the number of Two and a Half Men reruns your DVR automatically records.

AT&T has made its YP.COM TV app, which lets users enter a zip code to search for local business information, phone numbers and maps directly on your TV screen, more functional by giving it the ability to use that info to connect with a U-verse Voice home phone. But an even more valuable highlight might be the apps ability to send that info to your wireless phone number, so you can take the info and find that pizza joint on the way.

AT&T said it also has tweaked its DVR functionality, adding a "keep at most" feature that places a ceiling on the number of episodes of a single show you can automatically record, and "series priority" gives users the ability to prioritize recordings. Best new feature of all? "Series delete" lets users delete all recordings of a series with one click of the remote control, so you can finally dump all of those old episodes of Six Feet Under.
