    It appears the people reporting updates to 6.3b has stopped from what I am reading here. Has ANYONE been updated since 1/1/07?

    They better get 6.3b out to fix these audio problems before Jack Fricking Bauer starts in 2 weeks!

    My unit has not made a daily call on its since christmas. The units shows 10 days between calls after making a forced daily call. Fox is the worst but have them on other local OTA.
    I do have 6.3a been with Directv for 13 years.

    I think we should just send Jack over to D* HQ and see if he can fix the whole mess. HR10 issues, crappy NDS HR20s, pathetic HD pkg... After all he seems to be able to fix all problems in 1 day, right? :)

    http://tivo63b.freehostia.com/ has reported one update on the first and one on the second. I'm not sure how many people are actually using the site now since I have not advertised in the last week.

    I'll bet if they sent Chloe and her CTU team (too bad Edgar's dead) over to D* and TiVo to fix the problems she'd figure it out !!

    Truer words have never been spoken (typed??)

    I called last night and was told that all remaining HR10's will be updated between 1/3 and1/12... let's hope she was right. Good thing was that she knew of the update. Must have been a CTU CSR :)

    I just got an email from DIRECTV saying:

    " Please know that some HR10-250 receivers got download last December 13, 2006. Remaining HR10-250 receivers get download on January 3-12, 2007. The software will be sent to receiver for about 1 year. The download fixes audio dropouts that occurred when recording in Dolby Digital."

    They go on to say:

    "To receive an upgrade, just keep your receiver plugged in but it does not need to be turned on. Keep your phone line connected to your receiver. After TiVo daily call, upgrade automatically occurs within 24 hours. You can either wait for TiVo daily call, or use "Make Daily Call Now" option. "Current Call Status" will display "Pending Restart", this means upgrade was received. Receiver will reset itself and TiVo logo appears with message that new software has been installed. After the upgrade, you may see menu changes, or may need to reset some of your settings. If download is not completed by January 12, 2007, please confirm that phone line is connected and TiVo daily call must occur. If you have Call Waiting, it could interrupt the download. Should you have further questions, please call us at 1800-531-5000."

    I just now did a forced call and now have the 6.b. When you restart the unit, it takes a good 15 minutes to restart. Thanks all - will keep you informed as to any problems.

    I'm still too scared to upgrade from 3.1. :p My phone line is sitting on the floor.

    I forced a call Tuesday afternoon and did not get it. I guess I was one day early. Of course, after hearing about these reboot issues I don't know if I want 6.3b

    They'd just need to open some sockets. Or maybe work on a protocol. Maybe Chloe could just "send it to my screen" so I can avoid making the daily call or something.

    I know! During the middle of this "crisis" they should just let a distraught Dish Network executive into the building. And make sure that he's allowed to just walk around, especially near the equipment/person responsible for uploading 6.3b and/or authorizing the install. That way the Dish Net guy can damage/kill the responsible entity before any of the rest of us can get the update.

    (Wow, 24 sure is hokey ain't it? But I'll still watch.)

    Just got it this morning... although I have an issue. None of my OTA season passes are set to record anything. When I looked in the to do list it was set to to not record The Office, Earl, you name it. I rescanned my channels, updated a few season passes and still nothing. I'm going to try deleting the season passes and adding them back when I get home from work tonight. Anyone have this?

    OK - that works with the 3.1 software - but if we already have 6.1a and want to force to the call - where do we do that? The PHONE screens have changed and the only "FORCE" option I can see is to "CONNECT TO THE DVR SERVICE NOW" - which I tried... but I believe all that does is calls TIVO and updates it's info... doesn't call DTV and get the new update... I see a scheduled call for that - but it's not until next week. :( SOOooo...

    How can we force it to dial DTV now? Is there a code or series of buttons we can press to force it to dial now?

    Right now the only way to force a call is to call D* directly and have them schedule a call back. I only know this because I spent 3 hours on the phone with them the other night because I couldnt order Pay Per View, and the reason was all of my forced calls were going directly to TiVo and not to D*. The good news was the call came through about 2 hours after they scheduled it.

    Try rebooting the TiVo and let it download and index fresh program data. This might solve it within 24 hours.
