    Back in January my Directv R-10 had it's first problem with rebooting. I did my
    own research and found DVRupgrade and purchased the InstantCake 6.4
    software. I also bought a new 160gig hard drive. Everything worked just
    perfect for 6 months and now the problem is back.

    I found a link from Directv talking about their 6.2 upgrade and through the
    faqs it says, "I have a DIRECTV R10 DVR with 6.1 software. Will I receive this upgrade? No. The 6.1 software on the DIRECTV R10 DVR already includes
    the 6.2 features such as folders and faster menu scrolling."

    Since my unit hasn't changed except for the new hard drive then can I go
    back to either the 6.1 or 6.2 software. I don't think it's hard drive problem
    as I bought it locally from one of the best stores in town. It's only 7 months
    old. Is there someone who sells either the 6.1 or the 6.2 software for it. I'd
    be willing to bet it's a software problem.

    I'm lost and I really need help. I don't want a new unit. I wouldn't mind
    having a new one like mine. But I hate change when something works good.

    Would appreciate anyone's help or advice.

    Potato and pen.
    Why in the world are you posting about this in the forum for TiVos with DVD drives?

    From what I can tell, it doesn't have a DVD drive.
