    Last night, I forced calls on all of my HD-TiVos - my third newest finally received 6.3a. The second newest was in the original 6.3 batch and was immediately updated to 6.3a. The remaining three (newest, and two oldest) still don't have it.

    Take all that FWIW. :D

    Mine upgraded in Atlanta, GA between 10/12 and 10/13. I came home to a "green screen", no channel favorites, and 6.3a. I am having remote issues. DTV is shipping me a new remote (I have my doubts as to if that will fix my issues).

    Got it Wednesday 5-11, and experienced audio drop outs (with glitch at end) last night watching NLCS. Folders and speed good, audio drop outs bad. Cleveland, Ohio area, 44118. Box from first year, not hacked.

    Received upgrade on Thursday, October 12. Speed is fantasitic! Just in time for local HD channels and a switch to the NDS box. I wondering if HD locals are worth it as I can't really get them OTA.

    Got it on 2 systems, zip code 62221. Found that unit number 2 which is connected to a phone line had the update installed and active. I last checked it Thursday, so it was either Thursday night or Friday night when it installed. Seemed to be working fine except I did find an OTA channel with audio dropouts. Receiver showed it was receiving PCM. Other channels with true DD output had no dropouts. Went to unit number 1 and forced a call and got the Pending Restart message. It's currently in the conversion process.

    I have 2 HR10s. One receieved 6.3a 10/4 after forced call and the other got it last night/morning. I forced a call last night at 8pm and nothing. Forced another call this AM and received 6.3a. Almost two weeks apart. Zip codes have nothing to do with the roll out.

    Two out of three boxes got updates this week for me. I am curious if anyone knows if updates have taken place on Fri-Mon. I have seen some postings where people have updated on Fri-Mon but I wasn't sure if that was because they had not checked for an update on one of the previous weekdays.

    What I am asking is if DirecTV pushes updates on the following days, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon. I worked at a company where we didn't push content (software updates etc.) to servers on Friday's or Monday's, which obviously included the weekend.

    Stuck in the frozen goo of 3.1.5f

    Called D* advanced tech support and got the familiar speech that they are rolling this out up to Oct. 19th. If you don't have it by then, call them and they will ship me out a repalcement with it already on there. They gave me a phone # of 1-800-531-5000.

    Guaranteed I'll have to call them!

    Got 6.3a last night, 10:30pst on one of two. I had dialed out on both units at least 4 times yesterday. I was shocked to see "pending restart" on one.

    Last weekend was a holiday weekend so perhaps D* stopped or throttled back the update. From my experience last night I'd say they aren't taking weekends off now.
