    Well, not by default. Here's hoping the code is there and that a zipper/super patch update enables it.

    You the Man, Earl. :up: :up:

    And I guess kudos to DirecTV for finally releasing this, and just in time for the new TV season, too. :up:

    I was going to swap my drive out with a 400GB this weekend and zipper it. Now I guess I'll wait another few weeks for this.

    Thanks for putting this in a separate thread so we don't need to wade through the mud-slinging embarassment that the previous thread has been. And thanks for the info, Earl.

    Damn! Now I am even more upset that I got an HR20 when I asked for a 10-250.

    I was wanting the HMO at least to hopefully integrate with my home automation system.

    Maybe they didn't delete that section, but who knows for as long as it has taken to get released.

    Smart timing by DirectTV, if it happens. I'm sure they know about the potential mass exodus when the Series 3 box comes out, so this seems like a no-brainer. Thanks for the heads up, Earl.

    Great news Earl! Your strong belief of this being released is why I'm getting an HR10-250 (plus they gave it to me for free too!). It's getting installed next week so I'm happy to hear I won't have to live with the slow 3.1 for long. Mabye I'll get 6.3 on my first call!

    Thanks Earl, I appreciate you having skin thick enough to have survived the other threads.

    Yes, essentially the same process. Hack your HR10-250 at its current rev. Once the new version shows up in MFS, you can use the same process (more or less) that you used with your SD DTivo.

    I got my second HD-Tivo for the bedroom over a month ago for free and have been waiting for this update . The wife wouldn't let switch out to the HD from the SD Tivo until the folders were available. She loathes the slowness of the machine and no folders option. I can finally activate it since I have been going thru the setup menu everyday to reacquire the OTA HD signal when I want to watch OTA HD on my Westinghouse 37" LCD. The Fins vs Steelers looked great last night, unfortunate it wasn't good enough to squeak out a victory for the fins :(

    Native pass thru was the only feature I really cared about. My guide is not slow and folders really isn't that big of a deal to me.

    I, for one, hope that 6.3 gets here soon so that I can begin bitching about something else.

    I just got off the phone with my contact at DirecTV, and it seems the roll-out will go out in order of worthiness. Those of us who are most fervent fans of both TiVo and DirecTV will get the rollout first. (This is not based on any behavior of yours, just your inner thoughts and desires.) So, it appears that prayer will help.

    If you don't get the rollout the first day, well, you now know where you stand.

    Good news.

    [Waits for inevitable "I'll believe it when I see it post."]

    I do wish native passthrough had been included. But folders and better speed will be nice even without it.
