    Please tell me the secret to how most of you received the 6.3b update?

    Did you hold your mouth a certain way? or perhaps stand on one leg and howl at the moon?

    Please share you secret?

    Still no 6.3b on my HR10-250 running 6.3a so I called DirecTV and asked them how to "force" an update. I got bounced to 2 reps there, and they said if it doesn't update tonight, do a C&DE ("Clear & Delete Eeverything" a.k.a. "factory reset") tomorrow and then it should update to 6.3b within 24 hours.

    This sounds like B.S. to me and will take HOURS to accomplish. Will a C&DE really "force" an update to 6.3b? I dont' have anything recorded on that I can't record again but I REALLY don't want to have to take 30+ minutes to put back all the settings (Audio, Favorites, Channels, Video, etc.)

    It's BS. They told me the same thing. I had been forcing multiple daily calls for three days before I got the "pending restart" status last night. Just keep forcing hourly calls and you will get it. Continue to have patience.

    It is now January 15th and I forced a call this morning and you guessed it "Succeeded" :mad:

    When did DTv say everyone would have the patch (6.3b)?

    I also forced a call this morning and got Succeeded. I think I remember that originally they said by the 15th and then all I heard about was the 13TH. However I do no have it either and Direct is of no help. I do not want a HR20 so I just wait and must put up with the OTA audio problems.

    6.3b did not solve the audio dropouts for me. I recorded some stuff on NBC-NY HD and had many audio dropouts. I also got the reboot issue now. It rebooted during the season opener of 24. So much for quality testing.

    I finally got it at 10pm Saturday 1/13. I had forced a call earlier in the day, then when I forced one in the late evening I got it.

    No problems so far. No dropouts on FOX's football Sunday.

    Received it on the morning of the 13th ... Watched the entire FOX NFL Playoff game -- No Audio Dropouts whatsoever - nor reboots (although reboots had never been an issue for me). Yahoo ...

    Now DON'T break it .. !!

    I recorded 24 last night OTA from Wilmington, NC. I watched about 1/3 of it and scanned the rest. No dropouts in the parts that I watched.

    But when I had tuned the same station for a Panthers game (Christmas Eve I think) for visitors, I did notice some droputs as I walked by.

    Forgot : 6.3a, HR10-250

    I unplugged my Tivo last week to try and avoid getting 6.3b. Of course, the next day, I looked at the system info and saw it was on there. Not sure if it's actually been implemented or not since I'm [thankfully] not experiencing any reboot problems. Am I correct in assuming, it's not fully functional until it makes a phone call or not? I remember this discussion when 6-3a came out.

    But I did notice last night my folders have disappeared. Anyone else experiencing that problem?

    Still no 6.3B here. Last night Direct told me to reboot and I should have it this morning. I did and it is not here. This morning they told me to add call waiting to my box even though I do not have call waiting and to force one call and I should have it in 24 hours. Tomorrow I am sure I will have to face east mow the lawn say hi to the postman and I will get it. Oh they get upset when they are finished talking to me and ask if they have answered all my questions and I say no.
