    I've forced 3 calls per day for the last week, still nothing.
    Is there anyone else without it?

    I forced a call last night and got it.

    Hadn't tried to force one since it was announced.

    I did not force a call, pat my head/rub my stomach, or anything else that could mildly be construed as being impatient. This was upon advice of my high school kids who told me to chill out. they were right as usual. I did not have 6.3b, but 6.3c showed up the other day. Jumped from a to c!

    Just got 6.3c!

    I bought mine from an eBayer (slow to ship but otherwise very good seller), and it had 3.1.something on it, and wouldn't make a daily call (even he hadn't made a daily call on it for over a year). I couldn't' even talk it into making the call for new numbers.

    After three weeks of daily nags, I finally figured out the problem: it was set to a Texas phone number, and couldn't be directly convinced to dial 1-847 before a local number (why does it insist on only calling from their menu?).

    The trick I used was one that TiVo had walked me through on another unit, which is to type the entire number to dial (copied from my 1st-gen TiVo) into the dialing prefix. Once I had that, it was able to pick up my local numbers, and then give me the choice to dial 1-847 before the number chosen.

    6.3 seems nice. The video on the menus may be a bit glitchy, but the menus are a lot faster, and the sorting is nice to have. Did I get anything else cool? I noticed the Select Channels menu changed (combined Favorites and You Receive onto one screen, yawn), and the Guide now says use Enter instead of Info to change options (but Info still works).

    Well, it seems that everyone now has 6.3c.
    I've been forcing calls daily, but I surrender today. I got 6.3a OK. Never got 6.3b.
    I'm sill having audio drops at the start of some shows.
    I'm out of ideas.
    DTV has been no help. They have no idea why the box won't update.
    HD cable DVRs are not a desireable option in our rural area.
    I guess I'll just have to live with the glitches...

    Could be a phone number problem?

    I only have a couple of local options available.
    I've tried them both numbers and both work and go through ok, just no software update.
    I could dial a long distance number (different area code), but i can't convince myself that it will make a difference.
    Just for ducks, has anyone updated in the (707) area code?
    The thing that I keep coming back to is that I don't have OTA antenna enabled (no HD stations). I posted about this and someone insisted it would make no difference...

    No. The phone calls a local ISP (uunet) and makes a PPP connection over the internet.

    Do you have a hacked box?

    Some of them set a flag like UPGRADE_SOFTWARE=FALSE and won't upgrade on their own.

    If this is your problem, check in the Tivo Underground forum.
