    I have two HR 10's and recieved the the upgrade notices last week on both.

    No 6.3 upgrade on either.

    Forced daily calls once or twice a day.

    TWO friends got it yesterday (the 4th). I did not.

    So this very well be true. Looks like it's the 19th for me. :( And I am a first month owner.

    another long time user, had it since the beginning. With TONS of cartoons for my young kids, I've been absolutely dyeing for folders since my non-hd unit got 6.2 last year. I can't find anything, as my now-playing list is about 12 pages long!

    Especially now that I put a 750gig HD in, I really need it, as I'm taping all kinds of HD movies!

    Bring it to me PLEASE 28001

    ***btw, I too am forcing calls 3-4 times a day. Wish I knew how to hack it in!

    Maybe that's D*'s master plan. Force everyone to use their own DVR. Give the Tivo faithful the speed and folders we've been clamoring for, but make it buggy with DD audio drop outs on OTA so we get frustrated enough to switch to the HR20.
    No upgrade for me yet.

    I was anxiously waiting until yesterday when I pulled my telephone input.

    My logic was (after reading about all the sound issues) as follows:
    1) On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate it currently at a 8 (only problem is time it takes to setup new season passes or change priorities and lack of native pass through). If 6.3.a works it goes to a 9 (still no native pass through).
    2) If I have significant sound issues (50% of those taking the polls are complaining) the functionality would drop to a 2.
    3) Would you take a 50:50 bet where you could lose "6" (difference between 8 and 2) but only stand to gain "1" (difference between 8 and 9)?

    Any thoughts?

    My TiVo had 3xx days without a call (vonage). Messed with a few computers and finally got Serial -> PPP working. Now have my computer in my living room and I "dial out" a couple of times a day. Got the update "mail", but no 6.3 for me. Damn you DirecTV!! ::shaking my fist in the air::

    Three units. No updates. One forced call per day on the main unit. Occasional forced call on the other units when I happen to be using them.

    I had the same hope. It said that my dial in number was no longer valid. I thought maybe the old number wasn't letting me update. New number, no new update. :-(

    I make about three calls a day...it is driving me crazy...I call first thing in the morning, as soon as I get home from work, and in the evening when we sit down to watch TV...my wife thinks I am crazy, and my kids say, "Dad's making another call on the Tivo, again!"
