    Is it possible to run a coaxial cable from the att uverse standard (non DVR) receiver to my HTPC box (which has a digital and analogue tuner) to use Windows media center to act as a DVR?

    I had a nice htpc setup on my last cable company but I am not sure if I can do this on ATT Uverse. What i read on the internets seems to say no but i see few people actually using the ATT uverse receivers

    Wait, if it has already gone though the receiver then it has been transformed into a signal the TV can understand right? If so then the tuner in you HTPC is no different then the tuner in your TV and the AT&T Uverse receiver shouldn't even be able to tell the difference.
