    20740, I got it Sat night/Sun morning, I havn't seen and problems just yet, but I did just kill my HDMI card. I thought I saw a thread saying that someone was selling new cards or knew how to order them. I did a search but came up with 33 pages because I am searching HDMI :rolleyes: . Does anybody rememder this or am I just wishful thinking...I know about ccs I was just thinking that there was a way to order the card.

    I still don't have it and I just forced a call late Sunday night/Monday morning. It's an unmodified Hr10-250 that has been connected to the phone line the whole time. Are there many others who also don't yet have the update? Should I call Directv? Is there anything they can do about it without sending me a new box? I'm anxious because I got Vonage recently but I don't want to transfer my number and turn off my landline until this update comes through. It seems like I've been waiting a while for it.

    I just got it on the only-slightly-hacked one of my three units on Saturday. The other two are hacked/zippered so they aren't going to let the update happen until I let it.

    My first box reactivated 3 weeks ago. My second Hr10-250 reactivated over night. I'm in zip 48642. Both boxes are greatly expanded. The oldest and first to reactivate has a 750gb seagate + a 500gb Hitachi drive. My second box has two 750gb Hitachis.

    Interestingly the first box reports that it can record up to 164 hours of HD or 1004 hours of SD ... (under 6.3a). After the upgrade my second box reports it can record up to 1 hour of HD or 1 hour of SD -- anyone know why the slightly larger size is causing this interesting report? (I have well over 60HD movies on that box that can record up to 1 hour of HD)...

    Some things to try ....

    1. Perform a "Test Call", then force a "Daily Call". Someone reported that worked for them.

    2. Try using a different dial-in number if you have more than one local number.

    There are reports everyday of people still getting the update (including today). I have 2 of 3 updated and still waiting on the 3rd. Each report of another successful update makes me a lilttle more comfortable to keep waiting. I ahven't noticed a HUGE difference on the other two anyway. The folders are cool but I don't keep anything on the TiVo very long. It might me a small percent faster.

    I don't have a phone line so I was waiting until it seemed to be out to alot of people. Took it to a friends and plugged it up on Saturday, bam, got the update. The speed is soooooo nice, folders rock too.

    In Memphis, TN, 38104.

    Oh, wanted to add that I actually have LESS audio dropouts with the upgrade than I did before. No idea why.

    I tried the Test Call thing last night. I'll give a new number a try. It can't hurt.

    I got my update sometime Sunday morning (between 12 am and 10 am). The guide and setting up the recordings is much faster.

    No issues with for me.

    Why does everyone say they "forced" a call? You're just making a call now instead of when the box had one scheduled. You're not holding a gun to your Tivo, "Call now or your hard drive will be sleeping with the fishes".

    I got the new 6.3 software and I am in 48334.

    I forced a call, but did not have to use any weapons...just my charm. Hmmm, maybe if I used my charm earlier, I would not be one of the last to get the software!
