Got it this morning at 4:00
VERY FAST! Thanks DTV...
Forced a call about 1:10 PM today (Sunday) and got 6.3a.
Added : I probably won't be able to tell if it causes dropouts, all four of mine have done that since day 1.
Got it on one unit today at 10:30 AM forced call. 064xx. The older original unit, nothing. Man this unit is fast. What took so long to release this? What an improvement!!!
I received 6.3a this morning. woohooooo. The menus sure snap.
Zip 62613 (although I believe this rollout is machine ID based)
Got it on one of two machines yesterday. audio dropouts do appear to be an issue. Zip is 60045.
Check "Phone", had pending restart message, now waiting for restart to complete (it's taking a pretty long time).
Took about 40-minutes from first restart to completion on my HR10-250.
i've tried a few times now, each time after completing the call, it says "downloading" but i get no message at all.
should i keep trying?
went away 2 days and came back to 1/2 of my units updated. 19xxx. can't wait for the other.
Finally got mine today.
got mine overnight
Saturday afternoon, 28001. No problems so far. Took about 20min to restart
I got the update on one of my two HR10's on Saturday. I've been forcing one call per day on each unit since the beginning of the original 6.3 rollout. I was almost shocked to see the one unit actually say "Pending Restart." I had almost resigned myself to the notion that both units would get the update on the very last day.
So far, it rocks big time. Very fast, and I love folders!
Couldn't speak to the audio dropouts issue. The unit that updated is the kids' Tivo, and it powers a small LCD HDTV in the kitchen -- so the audio feed is analog out to that set, which gets its video by way of component cable. The other unit is connected to my home theater by way of toslink, so I an hoping that I will not have the audio dropout problem with that unit. I have a feeling I'll find out in the next four days or so.
I got the update on one of my receivers this morning
still waiting on the other
Showed up on one of three machines (oddly, it was the one that I hadn't been forcing phone calls on) on Saturday morning in zip 64068. The other two (the oldest and youngest of the trio) have gotten no love from DirecTV.
I'm not sure how they are determining when the machines get the upgrade but it seems to defy logic.
I complained about the pathetic speed of my HR10-250 yesterday and got this reply:
Thanks for writing. I'm sorry to hear about the trouble you're having with your HR10-250. The software upgrade usually occurs approximately 2 AM local time (after TiVo daily call). Some receivers get it Sept 26, 2006. Most get it by Oct 19, 2006. With the upgrade, your receiver would have the ability to group similar recorded shows into folders and the ability to sort the Now Playing list alphabetically or by date recorded. The guide is faster and searches are faster in WishList and Season Pass. The optimal performance occurs after 24 hrs of Power On.
To get the upgrade, please keep the receiver plugged in and it does not need to be turned on. Just keep your phone line connected to your receiver. After the TiVo daily call, your upgrade automatically occurs within 24 hours. You may either wait for TiVo daily call, or use "Make Daily Call Now" option. "Current Call Status" will display "Pending Restart." This means upgrade was received. Then. your receiver will reset. After which the TiVo logo appears with message that new software has been installed.
If you have other outstanding concerns, you may call us at 1-800-531-5000 and a representative will be able to help you.
Thanks again for writing and for your continued support!

Got mine on Sunday (10/15). It caused a little trouble with my universal remote (RS 15-1994), but everything is cool now. Love the speed and folders!
Got it on box #2 this morning.
Box # one got it some time ago, as it was one of the first that had 6.3 and needed 6.3a to "fix" it.
85050 (Phoenix, AZ) received.
I now no longer get the Dolby Digital indication on my denon 3805.
As an added bonus, I get the snap, crackle and pops on the audio !!
