    The title says it all, does anyone know when the new batch of serial numbers get released each day to authorize for the upgrade, just curious

    I got mine.
    I almost didn't notice it. I was checking twice a day.
    I gave up, and then BOOM, it was there.

    GroupBy/Folders is nice.
    Menu is faster.

    No issues recording:
    Smallville
    Office
    Earl
    ER
    (all OTA)
    and some
    ESPNHD VaTech/BC game last night.

    Got it in 208xx this morning.

    Of course, I got it on the box that is malfunctioning and "stuttering" (see my other post) and I'm about to send back to D*.

    Argh

    Got it today. 58201 zip (although that seems totally meaningless!)

    Season pass changes and menu are much faster. Haven't noticed any problems yet.

    Don't send it back..........just put in a bigger hard drive. Or I'll give you $50 for it.

    :D

    Hope this is the right place for this, my upgrade blew up and they are sending me a new unit, not clear if it's a HR10-250 or a HR20, the story changes every time I ask where is it ? it died 2:30am Yesterday, endless loop rebooting and going up to the getting ready to upgrade page.
    I'm having withdrawal, where is my HD-DVR...

    I'm still waiting for 6.3a on my first box; it's working fine on the second. Forced a call this AM and no go on the first one. However, I now recall that the 'first' box was actually replaced once and had to have a new access card (moved the card failed). Thus that card is newer than the one in my second HR10, and that's why my 'first' unit hasn't upgraded yet. :)

    I guess those of us with relatively recent cards are still 'sometime between now and next Friday...'. :(

    From everything I've read here the selection process is random. Many of us with the earliest units are still waiting along with everyone else.

    You will have to set it to show the folders.

    IIRC, I didn't get a message that 6.3 was installed.

    Forced a call last night. "Pending Restart". Upgrade didn't appear to have any problems. Experienced my first DD 5.1 drop about 10 minutes later. Also, the buffer and recording got completely screwed up. The 1 hour show I was watching shows up as a 16 min recording in the description and a 42 min recording on the onscreen timeline. Once it reaches 42 minutes, the timeline indicator jumped back to the beginning, but the show continued. Interestingly, if I tried to rewind, it jumped to the beginning. If I tried to fast forward, it reverted to the first 42 minutes of programming. Very odd.

    After about 10 minutes of messing with it, it restarted on me, and now everything seems fine -- so far.

    No noticeable problems with the other recordings (both pre and post update).

    Yep, thanks, for some reason I expected the default display to be the folder view. Easy enough to fix.

    No more forcing calls - 6.3a in the house. :)
