I am 2 for 3; got it yesterday on my leased box.
My last of three received it over Friday night. Not that it matters, but zip is 11704.
boogers....got my first OTA dropout this morning. I've unplugged 2nd machine so it doesn't get updated. From my experience, I know what my past ota multipath and other issues were, and this was nothing like that. It was a perfect picture with just mouths moving on good morning philly. I do hope it was just my antenna but all ota stuff has come in perfectly this fall season for me so far so this next week will be telling for sure
Received the upgrade on my two units last night I guess. Dialed in this morning and finally got the pending restart.
Zip 786 if it matters.
weatherford, ok 73096
Got the 6.3 update on Saturday.
I haven't watched anything recorded yet, but I can tell you navigation is much easier.
I wasn't really excited for any of the features except increased speed. It's noticeable that the grid guide, as well as the time it takes to schedule a recording are both much, much faster.
My second box in Connecticut got 6.3a this morning. Yippeee.
That's good news. I've been forcing calls twice a day for weeks here in CT.
I don't know if it's my anticipation or what, but the guide seems to be creeping even slower lately!
Just got it this morning - ironically I had been forcing calls a couple of times a day, but fell asleep in front of last night's footballl game... woke up this morning and found a pending restart... I'm in 191**, box is expanded to a single Seagate 750GB drive, but otherwise unhacked.Forced the restart... about twenty minutes later i have 6.3... turned on folders... much easier to get around Now Playing now
guide is a bit quicker, but not much... as a long time Tivo user I prefer the Tivo style guide over the DTV grid... have to say that scheduling a recording from the guide still took nearly thirty seconds, an improvement but still not good... maybe it's still crunching stuff in the database... disk is still working quite hard at the moment.
Poster above who lost the DD indicator on his tuner: you need to turn DD back on in settings/Audio/Digital Output
Forced call on Sat. morning..no luck...forced another one Sunday morn. same result...
just for kicks, forced another call Sunday afternoon..got pending restart...will wait to watch
some football recordings before I restart the unit...In S. Florida 330..
Got it. Forced a call last night, nada. Forced a call this morning, bam. 358xx
Last night I went to bed after the Met game (GO METS!!) and nothin.
This morning I wake up and 6.3a!!
It was a good night.
What more can you ask for.
Audio dropouts fixed!
What do you mean by 'no message at all'? A normal call that doesn't get the cue to load the new software will just get a Downloading... message, perhaps a (1%) or (2%) if there's a lot of data, and then 'Succeeded'.
That's all you get until you get the 'okay, upgrade this sucker' flag for your access card, then it will say 'Pending Restart' and you can restart the HR10 or wait for it to do itself overnight.
So, is that what you are seeing or what?
just got it -- 60015 - had to phone in this AM - then did a restart.
i do see the guide populating nearly instantly!
did i read that it'll take a day or two to show the speed benefits?
also i'm noticing the "finding satellite" screen-ever so briefly- when switching to OTA
Got it this morning at 8:15 after forcing two calls. Restarted and much quicker.
Funny that Sat picture looks better. We have had to go from sat in morning to ota because the picture quality has been so bad. Most locals had ghost on sat and poor colors. The sat liiks as good on locals in sd as ota.
Still waiting for two units to update in the 481xx zip.
lee, i get a "succeeded" note in the phone area, where it first says "dialing" and then "housekeeping", when it finishes.
other than that, nothing. i still haven't got an actual "message" though in my messages folder.
thanks for the help, by the way.
I got my 6.3 update last night, Sunday Oct 15
You have to go in and turn DD back on, it defaults to PCM when it upgrades.
