    Did you do that by just going under the phone menu and selecting "connect to dvr service now" or whatever it says?

    No update for me yet, forcing calls every morning.

    I'm pretty sure thatyour rcvr. has to be activated to get the upgrade. The slices have probably been downloaded already, but require authorization to install.

    Checked about 5 days ago and neither of my units had 6.3b (both at 6.3a). Last night I noticed that the older unit (2+ years old) got the 6.3b, but the newer unit is still at 6.3a.

    I had some glitches with 6.3a-- one reboot in the middle of a recorded show (Nothing but trailers so hardly a problem), two audio dropouts on CBS and maybe one on NBC from Oct-Dec. Plenty of dropouts on Fox OTA, but FOXE was pretty good. Turns out the only thing I watch on fox these days is football and it really didn't matter if I heard the announcers or not. Not to mention my team (Vikings) was not exactly riveting to watch so liberal use of the ff was applied and very few audio dropouts were actually even noticed.

    The one really bad glitch 6.3a blessed me with was an episode of ER that only contained the first 17 minutes. But hey, it's only TV. Strange to think how before TiVo missing parts of episodes, or entire episodes was just normal and accepted. I'm not about to get up in arms about a glitch like that-- I think I've caught every single episode of every series I've decide to watch in the past 6 years. And a wishlist entry for the ER episode I missed will likely correct this latest miss.

    Still, I'm optimistic that 6.3b will return to a more stable environment that I've come to expect the past 6 years between my DirecTivo's and HDTivos.

    I forced a call last night and got 6.3b. Reset my receiver and rebooted as normal, not 15 min boot time. Have not had any reboots and have not been able to check FOX. I am in Portland, OR.

    Joe I feel your pain. Many reboots and audio drop outs and the standard tivo remote is sometimes nonresponsive. I am very frustrated and a subscriber since 1997. Both times I have called in to complain I have gotten CSR's who hadn't heard of this problem before which I found hard to believe. The last guy I spoke to told me the roll out would be complete by 1/12/07. I am in NYC so I don't know about the geography of the roll out.

    I asked for and received a discount on my monthly bill. Still not happy. I only hope that 6.3b is a fix because I dont want to switch over to the non-tivo directv box.

    Got home today after being out of town since Tuesday. Forced the call and received 6.3b, yeah!!!

    Up to this point my unit had been stable but since I restarted the box, it has randomly rebooted itself five times and have had one lock up. Never had this problem before. Will try powering it down for several minutes and restarting again. Hope this takes care of it before 24 season opener!!!! :eek:

    I was finally successful in doing a PPP update (over the internet through the serial port) on NON hacked boxes with my HR10-250 and my DirecTivo SR-4080R and got 6.3b on HR10-250 and It's updating as I type on the other one, but that model isn't for this thread anyway...

    6.3b received on 1/5/07 Location: CO - 809xx

    Just got it tonight. While watching Las Vegas and getting way too many audio drops, I forced a call and got the pending restart. I restarted and now have b after about 15 mins of powering up, etc. Lets hope this fixes the audio problem. I'll check next Tuesday with House and 24 is coming up soon.

    This is a minor "bug" fix so why a rolling distribution? Why not a massive dump?
