Excellent! Finally some successful update reports.
Successful update to 6.4 on my HDVR2 this morning. Two calls to local number failed during download phase, so I forced call to number reported here as successful, 847 841 0035. Joy to see "Pending Restart" after download and 6.4 in System Information!
Restarted and didn't see missing locals immediately, so I decided to do a Clear Programming and To Do List. When that completes and I wait the requisite 4 hours... We'll see.
Update: all locals are back!
HDVR2 updated this morning after forced call. Irving 972 number used.
Don't know how long the phone call lasted, was at 2+ hours when I left the house.
Returned to "pending restart" status
I also have all my locals back on my R10. No hacks needed. Used the 847 841 0035 number, restarted, then did the clear programming/to do. Everything back and running now. About time.
Another success story. My R10 that I had down graded was unplugged so it didn't even have a guide. I just plugged it in last night and forced a call in. Don't know how long the call was but woke up and know running 6.4a.
I have a SAMSUNG SIR-S4080R & no upgrade for me - appears to me the problem for my type of receiver has not been fixed. If anyone with a Samsung has received the 6.4 upgrade I would be very surprised!!
Forced the daily call. It took several attempts to get it to go through, but it did it update and went to "Pending Restart". Restarted and it said it was doing a services update. Took about 25 mins and it was on 6.4 and my locals were back! I didn't have to clear anything out and all of my season passes are still there. Finally back to local channels after a month! Now calling DirecTV for a credit for services.
Reports at DDB are indicating they got tyFTPd working with Movieloader this past weekend.
tyFTPd installation is a breeze compared to mfsftp.
Not intending to go off topic, but there's been much talk of movieloader in this thread
In the early am on 3/10 the receiver rebooted on its on. When the reboot completed my locals were back. Yay. Better a crappy response from directv than no response.
Still nothing for Series 1
Over on the DirecTV forum they are saying there will not be a fix for series 1
There won't be.
If your Series 2 DirecTivo is connected to a phone line and successfully making calls, but you're still not getting the v6.4a update, then please post back with your Tivo Model Number and Tivo Service number. I'll pass that information along to our DirecTV contacts to provide to Tivo for further troubleshooting.
I now have NO locals, not even the non majors after reinstalling 6.2a then getting 6.4a from DVRUpg... , used slicer 1.9 to install it which is working but not even the channels #'s are showing up in the guide? Yes, I've even deleted every recorded show and season pass prior to running the "Clear program info and To Do List"...twice. I've reran the "Repeat Guided Setup" under the Setup menu and nothing. It's been over 24 hours and no sign of a local. I've even gone to the website and reauthorized twice but nothing.
Call DirecTV tell the computer answering machine Error 722. I know you went to the website and did this but it's a last attempt before talking to a human. This should redo all your receivers that are connected to the satellite. Maybe the call will work over the website. Try at least.
Hm, guess I'm hosed unless I want to hack things, I've been stuck on 6.2 for a long time now, have no phone line.
So it sounds like you're completely stock..... you don't have phone line access somewhere? What about a friend?
If your Tivo has telnet & FTP then it's really easy to upgrade to 6.4a for $20 (Slicer) and a wget from DVRUpgr....
but it's not without a few potential issues, so far I've done 1 Tivo without any issues... got locals and all's good but 2nd one still has "no" locals.
A temporary issue... but don't let that stop you from upgrading to 6.4a though.
Correction: 2nd one got locals after 24 hours! I'm good to go now.
Well it seems that the 722 call did the trick, I've got the ALL the locals now on both 6.4a units. Thanks zorro255!
Here is my info again:
Tivo model number - SAMSUNG SIR-S4080R - SERIES 2
Tivo current software version 6.3e 012-381
Tivo Service Number - 381-0000-EO5D-BF78
My Tivo does NOT have any "modifications" to its original software
TV brand & model number? SONY KV-32XBR48
My Tivo is connected to my TV via COAX
Some people are going on almost 3 months without locals, this is crazy. I am happy I was forced to bail after only 2 weeks. I will have 3 series 2 Tivo's to get rid of once we have watched all of the content.
