A major goal of home-networking geeks these days is moving video around the house, with new hardware and software appearing every week. Now, AT&T is getting a leg up on most cable competitors with "Total Home DVR" as part of the phone company's cablelike TV service.

This will allow shows recorded in the living room to be watched on any of the AT&T U-Verse boxes in a home. AT&T is just turning on capability that has been part of the Microsoft software that drives the TV service.

Total Home is first appearing in homes around San Francisco Bay, AT&T said today. Other U-Verse markets should get it by year's end.
