I have a Philips DSR7000. Upgraded to 302 Hours with Instant Cake running 6.2a. About 2 months ago I lost local channels in Southern California. It had been so long ago that I did the whole hard drive swap that I forgot about all the details of how I even did it. I pulled out my old 50 foot phone cord and hooked the unit up to the wall jack. I did that for about 2 weeks, but nothing ever happened. It connected fine, but update was never downloaded. I put away the phone cored and thought I was out of luck. It was unplugged for about 3 weeks.....and for some reason at 11:30 last night I thought I should plug it in again and see what happens. I forced it to connect. It connected and did a download (maybe 5 minutes). When I went back into phone setting to check status it said "pending restart". I went to bed and when I checked this morning all my locals were back! Now is says software version 6.4a. I was about to try all kind of costly alternatives to get my locals back. SO glad I happed on its own. btw I never gave my tivo details here or on the other forum. So those of you that didn't either, it should eventually download and upgrade. I guess it is just a waiting game. Have faith, it should work eventually. Even though the debacle should have never happened….thanks to whoever fixed it!
