    Still no 6.3b in Louisiana. Did i miss the window for it? CSR's act like they have no idea what I'm even talking about

    Still waiting in Northern CA.
    Are there any "updated" theories as to why there are still so many without 6.3b?

    Maybe they have turned off the upload for some reason?

    I still don't have it and I was told if we don't have it by now we won't get it.

    Though I was also told it would be available to everyone for download on the 12th of Jan. and it might take up to a year to actually get the download.


    My feeling, very very few people, as in maybe 10 (and ZERO CSRs) have an idea of how this download thing actually works.

    I've given up on getting 6.3b naturally. I'm doing research on FTPing the slices in and using Slicer to activate them. After that I'll probably have to re-Zipper, but I won't lose all my recordings. Right now I'm searching for which directory to FTP the slices to.

    I do not have 6.3b yet either. I have talked to 1/2 dozen CSR's to no avail or good explanation. One CSR argued with me about the mere existence of 6.3b. Another CSR wanted the easy way out by giving me a HR20 with a new 2 year commitment. What a deal. The others just wanted me to put in a call waiting prefix when I do not even have call waiting. I give up and will just take comfort in the fact that others do not have it. 6.3a has not been a huge problem for us with drop outs.

    Still no 6.3b and CSR told me today that a C&D will magically cause my box to download it. The sad part is that I'm thinking of trying it. She claims that it has worked for other poor sould like me who have to tolerate dropouts. I told her I didn't no how much more nonsense I could take. She told me the HR-20 was just like Netscape vs IE...my response was exactly why I don't want it.

    I did a C&D and it did nothing. I am still on 6.3a. I have entered the code for call waiting even though I do not have call waiting. I have no sign of 6.3b. They did send me an HR20 and I got to keep the HR10 and I have them both hooked up and working. I have no serious problem with the HR20 and audio dropouts with OTA FOX with the HR10.

    If you really want 6.3b NOW then spend 19.95 and Instantcake to 6.3b. I did and the process was smooth as glass and now I'm a happy camper at 6.3b with NO audio drops.

    I downloaded the slices from another forum then FTP'd them into my TiVo. I used the Slicer to get them going. I'm now zipping along with 6.3b. Unfortunately I lost the drivers for my network connection and will need to reZipper. At least I finally got the software running.

    I, too, lost the network connectivity when I did this. Worse, I lost serial connectivity as well and had to rezipper. I am back to 6.3a and will stay there. I have not been experiencing the reboot or dropout problems, so there's no need for me to go to 6.3b.

    I live in the Kansas City metro area and got tired of waiting for the upgrade god to bless my tivo so I downloaded instant cake 6.3b HD and within 1 hour I was up and running.

    This is a great option if you don't have a huge list of recorded programs you don't want to delete.

    I have not recieved 6.3b, called them about it they tried to force the upgrade, would not work. Have the protection plan so they sent me out a replacement unit which turned out to be an HR20.

    I received it last night (kind of). I really don't know how long it has been available for me but I have been unable to phone home until last night I got PPP over serial going and I was on 6.3b. Woohoohoooo.
