My contacts are personal contacts within DirecTV. This is exactly why they rollout the software over a period of months. If they find a problem they can stop the rollout. I'm not sure if you know how the rollout process works. There is a database that contains which version of the software each TiVo (by service number) is suppose to be running. During the rollout they choose machines randomly and update the version of the software the machine is suppose to be running in the database. In the test rollout they were doing they would only choose machines randomly in the southern California area. When your machine dails in it ask the server what version am I suppose to be running. If it is running a different version it will first look at local disk cache of the satellite caches to see if it can install it from the local disk. If it is not on the local disk it will download the software and install it. Once a machine software version has been updated in the database it would be very bad to go back to an older version. So once they up the version number of the software for a machine they do not revert an older version. The DirecTiVo usually calls in about every 8 days (maybe even more if you do not have connected to a phone line) so there will be machines that have had there software version updated that have not activated the software for some time. If there is a critical problem the machines that requires an emergency fix they could just up the software version in the database for those machines in the database that are suppose to have the bad version. Again they will do this over a few day/weeks/months. Since 6.2 is currently being tested and the bug is not critical to the baisc operation (unlike 3.1.1d) they are just pausing the release and not quickly replacing it.
