    I would count yourself lucky to not have the update yet until the bugs get resolved. I finally received my update today (986xx) and so far, so good....version 6.3a. I haven't had a chance to see if there are any dropouts on the HD programming that I recorded tonight, but I did notice that my season pass to The Price is Right recorded twice today? I thought maybe the recording got cut off and restarted (I think that's been one of the 6.3 problems). But the entire hour is there, just twice?

    Oh, and I do NOT have folders. The guide is quick though! And reordering season passes only takes moments, not hours.

    folders is an option you need to set. Go to list and hit enter (bottom right on remote) to set groups. Also need to re-set audio to dolby digital if you have theater system and re-do favorite channels and channels I receive.

    You guys helped me decide. I've been unplugged for 400+ days (I connect via PPP) and was going to dial in because I'm about to do a big computer upgrade and didn't want to go through the hassle of setting up PPP all over again. I figured I might get lucky and grab 6.3 if it's waiting for me.

    But I think I can wait a few more weeks and see if there's a 6.3b. Everything records fine right now, no audio dropouts, and I can always take it to a friend's house if my PPP gets FUBAR'd in the upgrade.

    Audio drops may be workable, but the stories about spontaneous reboots and having to get a replacement unit are scaring me into staying unplugged for the time being. I have 6.x on a standard TiVo box and the faster menus and folders don't seem worth that kind of risk.

    Well...that may be true for some, but Im dying for the increased guide speed....and I dont make use of the DD sound, so issues with that wont bother me. And I've been having audio dropouts lately with 3.1, so I'm not entirely convinced its a 6.3 problem. I just wish D* would get this thing out a little faster than they have been.

    This announcement by Earl is the best news I have had all week. I'm not having a problem with my 6.3a (manual install) box, but I was making myself nuts calling every 6-12 hours to get it on my unhacked box. I guess now I will wait until 6.3b (just guessing) shows up in MFS on my hacked unit.

    Or I'll just keep calling as before; it's practically my only hobby and it is a pretty darn cheap one. ;)

    No update here in Southwest Florida either. Something tells me that we're going to be starting this thread all over again after 10/19 when none of us gets our update by that "magic" date. By then it will be 11/04, and when 11/04 comes and go, it'll be 11/19. Wait a tick, I'm seeing a pattern there. Maybe this should be a sticky thread. :D

    I sort of doubt that God has anything to do with it :)

    Does anybody think that updates will occur over the weekend, or will they be on hiatus until the work week?
