    Now why would you bother going through all that? Just add 6.3b yourself. You can do that via ftp-ing the slices to your unit or using Instantcake 6.3b to apply the image in its entirety.

    If you haven't hacked your unit or prefer to not lose recordings and all, then the first option would be the best route.

    Still nothing here. Haven't hacked and don't want the HR20, so I guess I'll live with Fox dropouts until they feel that I'm high up enough on the A-list to give it to me. It amazes me that Directv knows there's a problem and basically refuses to fix it the "right" way.

    Still no 6.3b here,
    I've given up forcing daily calls.
    I don't even want to call DTV and complain again. It's not worth the hassle.
    Sadly, I've just got used to the few audio drops.
    I wish I could figure out why some of us missed the boat?
    Im my experience, this sort of thing usually works (or doesn't work) the same for everyone...

    Presume you "owned" your HR10. If they had replaced it with another HR10, you would "own" that replacement. By substituting a HR20, did they then give you a two year committment and/or say the HR20 was leased?

    Still nothing here. Direct sent me a replacement HR20 and said I could keep my HR10 and now they are both hooked up. Different machines but, the HR10 is OK.
    Just seems funny that since the update and all is sent out by TIVO there is no way to contact them and ask our questions since D will do nothing.

    I haven't had my phone line connected since I received 6.3a, really haven't had any problems, don't use OTA and hardly record anything in High Def due to the large amounts of season passes I have. Should I just sit back and not connect my phone line, or should I connect it and see if B is available?

    The update is developed by TiVo but sent out by DirecTV, not TiVo.

    True the update is sent by Satellite to our receivers. It is the phone call to TIVO to tells it to install. TIVO would be wise to keep end users on its side with new ownership in a few months.

    Does anyone know for sure if the phone call still goes to TiVo instead of DirecTV? This has never been clear to me since DirecTV "took over" the DirecTiVo accounts some time ago.

    Unfortuantely I found out the hard way that even if you own your DVR and have the protection plan, if they replace it with the same type of DVR they still sign you up for a new 2 year contract. They may or may not inform you of that. I've been arguing with them about this for months.

    They tried to do that to me, only took a few minutes with "Access Card" people to fix it.

    Please elaborate. I do not want to be in a contract with this $%^&%$* company any longer than I need to be.

    They tried that with me; but it took only a couple minutes with a supervisor to remove the contract requirement and keep the status as "owned". I still wonder what would happen if they substituted the HR20 for a failed HR10. They would probably argue that they had provided upgraded capabilities and it would be harder to keep the owned/no contract status.

    Not sure about the 2 year committment, they did say since i owned the HR-10 and it was replaced through the protection plan, i own the HR-20.

    Fixes for the change in Daylight Saving Time. Without c your recordings will be an hour off once DST starts.

    And you know this how?

    If that were the case, what about all the other nonHR10-250 DTIVOs?
