    I've been patiently waiting for the 6.3b update but as of this writing, nothing. Am I the only one that has not received this update? Is there a way to force the update?

    Thanks for all your feedback,

    John

    I have not. Is there any point to "connect to the DVR service" multiple times per day? All mine is says is "succeeded".

    I have not received it yet. And no, there is no way to force the upgrade.

    Pretty sure (but not 100%) that one check a day is all you need vs. multiple. As *I* understand it each night your box is either selected to get the update or not. And waking up at Xam and forcing a call once is all that's needed. If you don't have it at 7am, your not going to have it at 10am etc...

    As far 6.3b :( I still don't have the slices yet! I've even tried a few 'tricks' without luck <sigh> But, FWIW I'm not seeing drop-outs in 6.3a. Of course I had 3.1.5f until last week. And most of my active season passes are over for the year so not many FOX recordings happening.

    What's the logic in staggering a "bug fix" update. I can see a staggered roll out of a major OS upgrade (6.3) because of calls to CSRs ect. But I can't see why a bug fixer wouldn't go out nationwide at once.

    I have it.
    I forced calls until it decided to update.

    To detect and reduce the impact of iatrogenic bugs. IOW, if they inadvertently broke something while else fixing the targeted bug, they'll discover it before it's rolled out to the entire user base. It's standard practice.

    The fastest way to get an update is the same as improving your golf score: stop caring.

    I waited for 6.3b, with phone unplugged, and when I finally plugged in I got 6.3a. Doh! I've seen the problem on FOX now, and it would be maddening if I'd been tolerating this as long as some others had. I recorded football on the FOXE feed channel 88, and didn't see dropouts on that channel, but my OTA local 5-1 had them. I could swear I read somewhere on this forum that recording FOX on the Satellite channels and not OTA was a workaround in the meantime. Did anyone else read that or confirm that?

    Edit: found this link that answered my own question.

    channel 88 info

    Anyhow, still no 6.3b in Atlanta!

    Nothing here yet in Madison, WI. It is maddening to wait.

    I was also among the very last people to receive 6.3a on both of my machines - which took the update within 48 hours of each other, as I recall. I fear that I will be among the very last to get this update, too.

    The audio dropouts are terrible. I am very anxious to get the 6.3b update.

    Nothing as of last night. Didn't check this morning. I didn't get 6.3a until the final days of its release.

    I was one of the last to get 6.3a, and ended up getting 6.3b almost immediately! Go figure!

    Both my of my units were unplugged with 3.1.5f (3.5.1f?). When I plugged one in, it was still downloading after an hour. A slow download indicates 6.3a is coming over the phone line. I unplugged it and it still has 3.1.5f. The second machine downloaded the update within 6 minutes and now has 6.3b. As it was downloading, the screen described the action as something else, not "downloading." I force a call each morning on the first machine looking for the same description. So far it continues to say "downloading," and I unplug it.

    I've got four HR10's. Got 6.3b on my oldest HR10 the first day. Despite forcing daily calls since then, I haven't yet received 6.3b on any of my other three HR10's. I can at least vouch that they're not doing it by zip code or account number. :)

    Just the opposite for me. I received 6.3 and 6.3a the first day each were available, but still no 6.3b...
