    Weird, I also had to change my number late last night. I forced a call last night and it took a little longer than normal and I had a message stating that I had to change my local dial in number.

    why all the sudden change in dial up numbers? And why did only one of 2 units get the notification? Is the other number not good enough for both machines?

    I still haven't received it, and I assumed it's because D* found out that I ordered FIOS-TV... So I'm on the blacklist now.

    Well as of two days ago when I unplugged the phone line, I hadn't gotten 6.3a.

    And I don't think I will plug it back in until I have a better feel for the audio dropouts problem. As much as I want folders and faster menus, I don't want to put up with regular audio dropouts. :(

    I actually haven't had much time since seeing the update notice to check (after the first couple of days of checking every time I turned on the TV, of course) so I thought I'd heard an audio issue on one recording and got excited thinking I may have the update and its causing audio issues, but alas, I still have 3.X.f

    While I'm thinking of it, I should check the SA Tivo to see if it needs anew number too...

    D* is saying officially now that "some people" would start getting the update on Sept 26 or so, and that the rest will get it Oct 19.

    I spoke to Advance Tech Support yesterday and that is all they could tell me. She could not confirm that people we're still getting it day by day until the 19th.

    I know two other people in Chicago who got the upgrade message weeks ago, and received the update the next day.

    I received the upgrade message as well, but no joy. :(

    Nothing on my unhacked box. I am getting another box today that I bought from a forum member, I will be both mildly amused and pissed if it gets the update first.

    I'm not so sure about that. I'm getting the triple whammy. Neither of my two HR10s have gotten the update (1 was a $1000, other was $500). AND, I ordered a new HR20. Install guy never showed up in the 5 hour window, no call, nothing. I call install, they say he was sick. Set up install appointment #2 (for a week later). Install guy never showed up in a 5 hour window, no call, nothing. I call install, they say he was sick. I think I'm beginning to see a pattern. When I call, they tell me that I'm one of their best customers .. on their A-List. If this is the A-list, I'd hate to see how the B-listers are treated!

    In my mind, the smartest thing Directv ever did was get an exclusive contract for NFL Sunday Ticket. I'm officially being held hostage. :rolleyes:

    Assuming the upgrades *are* hooked to the card numbers, and it's a little late (maybe) for this, but someone in D* could make a mint from taking a bunch of access cards that are on the 'upgrade now' list and selling them to us desperate folks. :D :D

    Forcing 8 calls a day does not make you a bad person!
