Advertisements Only post to this thread if your machine has activated 6.3a. Do not post the you have received slices for 6.3a. Only post if 6.3a has been activated naturally with a phone call and without any hacking. This thread is to track the release of 6.3 for the HR10-250. DirecTV typically rolls out software over a few week/month period. It is usually done the service address of the receiver. Only post to this thread if your machine has activated 6.3. Please post the day you got it and the first 2 digits of the zipcode of the service address of the receiver. Also post if you already had 6.3 installed and if you are in a region that uses the 72.5 degree satellite. Just because your zipcode may be listed you still may not activate the 6.3a software right away. Each night DirecTV/TiVo randomly choose receivers by the receiver service number and possiblly by zipcode. They update there database to reflect that 6.3a should be running on the randomly selected receiver. The next time the receiver completes the "TiVo" phone call the status will change to "Pending Restart". Early in the morning the receiver will restart itself and install the new software. If you see a "Pending Restart" and want the software right away you can restart the receiver. This software install will take a longer than the usual software install because the TiVo database must be rebuilt. If you have any programs that are about to start recording and you do not want to miss them wait till after the show to restart. DirecTV will be streaming the software images over the satellite for a few days/weeks and your machine will cache the software during the 3:00am service download. If your machine does not cache it for some reason (no satellite reception, ...) the software can be downloaded over the phone when it needs to be installed.
