I forsee a shitload more redlights in the not-too-distant future, along with a lot of pissed off individuals.

I called AT&T on this and here is the low down:

You have to pay a one time fee of $99 to get the uverse on your Xbox360 bundle. The bundle includes a microsoft media center remote, software, and a home hpna adaptor. You also have to pay a $55 professional installation fee. You have to already have a DVR box in your service.

I think I will just add another box for $7/month. I would have to rent one for 22 months before it equals the cost of adding a Xbox 360 to the service as another box!
