I received the upgrade on one of mine this morning. 18104
same caca different day... 92503
I got mine yesterday and restarted last night. The entire reboot (2) took about 20 minutes and came up without a hitch. Went into Settings/Channels to reset the channels I receive and noticed quite a different interface. Quickly set the channels I receive then went to Live TV to check the speed of the DirecTV guide. Much improved and expect a little more improvement in the speed after the guide is current from the sat. Went into the Now Playing List to turn on folders. No problem. Went to work with my Season Passes and saw a message on the bottom of the screen that I could not work with them until the guide was current.
Overall, a very nice upgrade. 900xx.
Forced calls yesterday, last night, this mornig. Nada. 2 boxes. Nada.
1 of my 3 units finally got the upgrade this morning after a forced call. Of course it was the one unit that we rarely use but one is better than none which was where I was at before this morning.
Been doing a daily call for a month and nothing here in 191xx
Maybe I'm not on their list!
Got mine yesterday and everything is fine.
Forced my daily call .... Nope .... SF Bay Area - 94530
Got mine last night. It was the first time I had done a call in about 145 days. I restarted without a problem - took a little longer since it had to install the new software. There are definitely some interface differences, but I haven't had the chance to really dive into it yet. I did notice (or maybe I just couldn't find it) that there is no more 'Favorites' and 'Channels You Receive' section under channels, just a way to set the channels you receive. Although, when I first brought up my DirecTV grid, it was still set to Favorites, but gave me a message on screen saying that this channel guide is not set up, and to press enter to change the channel guide (or something like that).
I also was prompted that I couldn't work with season passes until the data was current. It was late, so I just went to bed. I will see tonight if the season passes are working okay.
I did notice that I did not lose my 'To Do' list in the process. It still has all of the shows on the 'To Do' list that were there before the update.
Just forced a daily call, restarted the Tivo and it is going through the software update now. I plan to backup the drive after the update completes.
I'm in 95123
Dont forget to go to audio and re-set OUT to Dolby Digital if you have a home theatre system.
I live in No. California. 2 of my units received 6.3 upgrade and one did not.? DirecTV has tried to force an upgrade on my third unit numerous times to no avail.
Duluth, MN, 55806 Finally received the update.
Forced minimum 2 calls/ day, never noticed any pending restart message, restarted/rebooted machine last night before going to bed, went home for lunch today, and Voila!
Now besides the folders and faster guide, what is so great about 6.3a again?
FINALLY GOT MINE! I think they are updating a lot more then before. I dont use OTA and have had no problems with it. Nice to have folders back!
Folder are nice, I guess, and the unit is a little faster. If only it would stop recording partials. I have now lost two shows from my SPass list.
Got that already. Was looking around the settings to see what changed and verify that what I wanted was still set.
I have HDMI to a Sony 34" XBR, and Toslink to a Sony ES A/V receiver.
Yes, I have received 6.3a on another one of my boxes this morning. How do I know it was activated this morning? I had been forcing calls every morning when I get up, and every night before I go to bed....
Hey, no gloating allowed There are still a few of us who have multi-units with nary an update!
I stopped forcing calls a couple of weeks ago, so it just happened on its own, no manual restart needed.
I'm not really blown away by anything but the faster speed. What's the best part of the upgrade, in everyone's opinion?
Got it yesterday -- 275**
No noticable problems.
