I am a new Uverse customer and after the first night, we realized that when we turned off the STB that the little annoying blue light stayed on. My wife was having a fit. After going round and round with tech support and reading the att forums, I finally resolved my annoying blue hd light problem in our bedroom without having to use a piece of tape. My TV in my bedroom was a Vizio and the technician said that because of some intermitten issues, we had to use component cables to connect that TV to the HD STB. Because the component cables do not communicate like the HDMI cable to the STB, the software on the STB never gets the signal that the TV is turned off. So, the bright little blue light stayed on. I fixed the problem by also connecting an HDMI cable from the STB to the TV. Even though I am not using the HDMI cable for viewing, it still communicates to the STB when I turn off the TV - the bright little annoying light goes out. YEA!!!!!
