    04901 - nada... all of the goodwill that DirecTV earned by releasing the 6.3 update in the first place is slowly ebbing away (at least for me).

    Nothing here in RI either. My unit was the first one Tweeter got in stock in RI, so it is one of the first. I got the message last week and have been forcing a call every morning assuming the satellite sends the update overnight. Nothing so far.

    I have one of the originals also. Bought it when they first came out. And no love.

    Wonder how many were sold or in use. Also curious how many here on the forum have this unit. We could very well be a very small part of the user base. Maybe 5%???

    I Recently got a new/refurb 10-250 from D* because the one I had continually failed at calling out.

    I hooked it up to the phone line when I got it, and it stayed on the phone call downloading for an hour at least. When it finished it said pending restart. I did so, saw the installing new Tivo software screen and was pyched for 6.3.

    After it finished the software version was 3.1.5F only! I did get logos...is 3.1 supposed to have logos?

    Every call I've made since results in only the dreaded "succeeded" message.

    Don't know what happened, and don't care. Just authorize the damn 6.3a already will you D*? What a ridiculous upgrade system they have!

    I'm getting more PO'd every day! Silly, huh?...NOT!

    Nothing here for me either. I'm forcing about two calls per day, and really beginning to just lose interest.

    It will get here when it gets here. Nothing I'm doing seems to be making any difference.

    Brookeville,...
    So who else wishes there was a "Make Daily Call" button on the front of the box?!

    2 HR10's and nothing here in MD.

    Well, I don't have it but I did get it..

    Two HR10's, one older, one newer. Newer one got the update the first day! I think, wow, won the lottery. Update runs, then unit won't boot. 'Must be the hard drive'.
    To Directv's credit, they did send out a replacement next day. Both the replacement and my older unit still sitting at 3.1...

    Now, I can't pickup the remote without the kids accusing me of trying another dial out.....

    to officially (note to those people looking for official notification) announce if on the mail then NOT give it to me within a week is unconscionable. I would have prefered no notification and then a surprise.

    Does anyone know if someone who got the update weeks ago also got this new notification? I'm wondering if they only sent to people who didnt get it or just every person got the mail?

    and unless i missed the post...i dont think our 'official' source has said anything about oct 4 has he?

    When people started getting it, I was forcing a call every day but have since lost interest and typically do it once or twice a week. I just ordered a new HR20 so its not even that big of a deal other than I would like to get the update.

    I was told the 6.3a upgrade would hit most receivers by October 4, and the rest by October 19.

    No love here yet. :(

    Same here... very long download around 10:30 PST - I was actually hopeful for a minute there before I flipped "succeeded" the bird.
