    It would be so cool if you could playback video content from your iPhone through the USB on your Uverse set top box. Anyone else hoping for this kind of integration?

    I don't think that idea would be that great. The AppleTV already does that. Plus I don't really want to see hoe bad iPhone quality video would look on my 65 inch TV

    It'd be better to do it wirelessly, which is possible because U-Verse is IP based. There are tons of great features that are supposedly being worked on for the iPhone and U-Verse in AT&T Labs. Not sure if/when we will actually see them.

    Here is a cool article about it, although it's a year old:
