    How many have there been?

    The series1 seemed to start at 3.0 and are at 3.5b

    The series 2 seemed to start at 3.1, skip 4 and 5, then 6.1 until 6.3e

    Was this the progression or am I mis remembering?

    That's about right. The R10 DVR had v6.1 software while the other Series 2 Tivo's had v6.2, until they both migrated to the current 6.3e.

    Why do you care?

    I seem to remember my series 1s, T60 and DSR6000, being at 2.5 for some time.

    I also throw my hat in the ring so to say, wondering why it matters. The only thing that should matter is what the current software versions are.

    I was just interested. I had a friend who's Series 2 was still on 3.1 because it had never been plugged into a phone jack. I am starting to think of all the little glitches over the years could have been avoided by just simply not letting the DiredTivo's update.

    Yes, little glitches could have been avoided, but the improvements would have been missed as well.

    I completely agree with your last statement. Haven't had my zippered units plugged into a phoneline for the past 2 years. I haven't had a single problem with either of my DTivo's, even during the Daylight Savings time goof that some had to deal with.
