    After finally getting the update, does anybody know if I do a "clear & delete everything", if I will still have the 6.3a upgrade?

    I too just forced a call and finally got it. They must have finally added the last authorizations.

    Got it tonight at about 7:30 PM. ZIP is 85308 (Glendale, AZ - Phoenix metro area).

    For the record, I tried the "Test Call" followed by "Make Daily Call" and that actually worked for me! It may have been a coincidence, but it did seem to work (for what it's worth).

    One interesting thing was that the "downloading" phase took so long that it actually went off the "Phone" screen and back to Live TV. Didn't stop the download (thank goodness), but after the call hung up, it took about 2 minutes of "installing" before I FINALLY saw the "pending restart" message.

    The new install took about 25 minutes for me.

    First impression (I'm watching game 3 of the World Series time-shifted off a recording) is that the HD from the OTA tuner doesn't look quite as "crisp" as it did with 3.1f.

    Oh, well. I'm happy to finally have 6.3 with the speed increases. I don't use DD or HDMI, so hopefully I'll skirt some of the problems.

    We got it Tuesday night... very happy about the speed and folders.
    Various screens have changed, love the conflict resolution telling
    me BOTH shows that are in conflict, adjusting season passes takes
    less than a minute (versus 10 minutes before).

    The only downside for me is my remote "tivo" button isn't recognized.
    Looks like I'll be reprogramming that bad-boy this weekend :-/

    No crashes or audio dropouts (yet) :: fingers soooo-crossed ::
