    So if I stayed with 3.1.5f I would have slower speeds and no folders? Are there any other differences?

    I was watching a recorded show after I got home from work and at 3:30am this morning my HR10-250 suddenly rebooted without any warning. It said it was installing an update and when it was done I now have 6.3d.

    Nope, that's it... oh, and the daily nag screen of course, since you can't plug in the phone line.

    after dropouts and a continually locking up TODO list, I left my other HDtivo on 3.1 and while i do miss folders, slow SP reorder, slow record while on HD stations etc, i will not plug in that phone line until my 6.X problems are done with.

    Bcause of Daylight Saving Times, your recording *might* be off for the few weeks in the spring and summer between the new DST date and the old DST date. There is a thread somewhere here about what will happen to the recordings...

    Kool, well I suppose I will just test out the machine with the existing software see how I like it and go from there, I know the wife will not like having folders though so who knows, maybe Ill take the plunge and see what happens. With D* wanting to rid all of the households of the all elite tivo do we really think they have any incentive to fix any of the problems associated with 6.3x ??

    Manual recordings are the primary concern there. I lived with 3.1 for 3 weeks and had no issues other than wondering why shows were on certain 'times' I wasn't used to.

    Manual records would be off and the clock would be off, but regular recordings will be fine.

    Funny, but the same question was asked last year dozens (hundreds?) of times by those folks who doubted the 6.3 update was ever going to come. Why would DirecTV bother updating a box that they are trying to kill off? They're just trying to get us all to switch to an HR20 anyway, right? Well, except for the fact that since last year they have released 6.3, 6.3a, 6.3b, 6.3c and now 6.3d.

    Well I only say or ask that know because I have read numerous threads lately that they are getting more and more hell bent on removing the boxes from peoples households. But yes the updates are living proof that someone must care :) So heres to you tivo LONG LIVE THE HR10-250

    One other difference is the ability to sort the Now Playing list is turned on in 6.3. It can be turned on in 3.1.5f by doing a "slow 0 record thumbsup" while viewing the Now Playing list.

    Are you saying the To Do List can be sorted with 6.3 or did you mean the Now Playing List? I don't see how to sort the To Do List. Tried "slow 0 record thumbsup" with no effect.

    The To Do list can not be sorted in 3.1.5f or 6.3x, only the now playing list.

    I think there are two simultaneous but largely unrelated dynamics going on here. DTV wants to convert Tivo owners away from Tivo and toward their home-grown platform, sure. But Tivo wants to provide the best support possible for their existing PVRs. The consensus is that they have stumbled uncharacteristically in that, which is why there have been a flurry of attempts to rectify things.

    Now Tivo's interests may be counter to DTV's, and vice versa. But for DTV to present obstacles to Tivo in their efforts to update DTivos would be a bad idea for them. It could constitute restraint of trade, for one thing. Even though DTV wishes that their box was better than Tivo, for them to take an active sinister hand in lowering the value of existing Tivos is not in their best interests in the long run. It would also turn their agreement with Tivo, which is essentially a detente, into a contentious relationship.

    Stability! Lockups and reboots. It had been okay for the past couple of weeks though.

    I'm in the same boat. HR10-250 went from 3.1 to 6.3a and no change since then.
    I also still have audio drops, mostly at the beginning of shows.
    Interesting that some units won't upgrade...
    At least I know I'm not the only one out there.
