    I to finally gave up on getting 6.3b and bought Instantcake 6.3b. It's a pain because it wipes the disk so you have to redo all your season passes. But at least I'll be able to watch 24 and Prison Break in HD with uninterrupted audio, I hope!

    After forcing a two calls a day for a month, I still don't have it and have just about given up getting it...
    I wonder if it might have something to do with modded machines. We have a Weaknees 250g. HD added to the capacity. Perhaps this changes the unit in some way so that it won't pick up 6.3b. I'm tired of the all the resets and audio drops, but another call to DTV is probably a waste of time.
    After the last reset we have a new problem...The machine would not respond to the remote. Somehow it had spontaneously changed the remote response code from #2 to #1. After checking things out, I changed it back, but now it's sluggish to respond to the remote commands.
    Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated...
    Thanks

    In Houston we have 3 area codes, so I tried seveal numbers from each area code and never received 6.3b. Time for instantcake 63b.

    I woke up to a Pending Restart message this morning. I have a newly purchased used HR10-250 that came with 3.1. It has been running 3.1 since Friday at my home since Friday. I restarted this morning, and am back to the foldered goodness of 6.3b!

    I didn't watch much more than 30 minutes today, so I can't say if there are problems.

    Yesterday I noticed my 30-skip wasn't working so I checked and saw I finally got 6.3b.

    I have 30 sec skip enabled with 6.3b and have been seeing inconsistent operation with the back up 6 second function. Sometimes it only rewinds about 1 second on some of my HD recordings.

    Is this noticed by anyone else?

    Interesting thread. What is hard to understand is why in one year of use I never saw anything like this. Solid as a rock for over a year and now that I have 6.3b, little operational glitches seem to be in order? Don't need this.

    Never had a problem before, but since the move to 6.3b, I've been experiencing occassional (and extremely annoying) reboots while watching recorded HD content. :thumbsdown:

    We had 6.3b for five days now, no reboots reported by members of the house hold as of yet. Fox OTA audio dropouts virtually non-existent but occasionally occur. Oddly enough pixilation problems seem more apparent on all OTA. OTA channel scan gained 2 secondary OTA channels.

    The last upgrade I recieved was about 18 Oct, having the HR10-250 in the house plugged in waiting for the upgrade, before I left for FL in the RV.
    I got the upgrade and left.
    Now installed in hard to reach cabinets, in new Airstream. No phone line.
    #1. I have a 3sat/LNB Motosat MHDTV, so no reason to get HR20 right?
    #2. Is there any way to force authorize upgrade/reboot without a land line. It is my understanding the software updates are downloaded via sat? and must be authorized by phone call?
    Thanks

    #1 Right, unless you need to rcv. MPEG-4 programming. You would then need an H20 rcvr. or HR20-700 DVR and a 5 LNB dish. I don't know if anyone makes a model for mobile use. Maybe you could use a second dish for MPEG-4.

    #2 You are right, authorization comes from the phone line unless your rcvr. is modified (hacked).

    I read somewhere that some have had success using a cellphone.
