    How long was the phone unplugged?

    I asked in another forum-I can't imagine that I am the only one in this forum that has never had the phone plugged in. Yet everybody still at least manages to get the 6.3 slices.

    I have been given different directions on how to make it happen, but why would they not load over the sat?

    Right, there are folks that have received the 6.3 slices without forcing a call, adding scripts, and other ways.

    We are talking about 2 different things. The 'DirecTV call' mentioned above is the call that is associated with PPV etc and can not be forced. The 'daily' call (actually every few days) is a separate call and is the one that authorizes the update.

    No...not at power up. You'll see 'Pending Restart' instead of 'Successful' on the messages and setup phone screen at the completion of a forced call.

    I'm watching FOX (football) OTA and the audio dropout party is in full swing! This needs fixing real soon. For me it is now officially annoying. I'm still happy to have 6.3a Though! :)

    had the audio drop out on Fox as well...

    one unit that got the upgrade lost the NFL sunday ticket...had to do a reboot and call the CSR to get it re-activated...wasted the first 45 minutes of the 1 PM games getting it right :mad:

    Unfortunately, yes... but even when connecting, it goes through connecting, configuring and downloading 1 time each, not once each for D* and Tivo as would be expected. I guess I should have emphasized that over the single number bit.

    The poster said that D* has no control over the calls in to Tivo, so if it was a call and D* was acting like an ISP, they would know about the 'calls' to Tivo over their network.
