    But we don't know what time of day it happens, do we? It could happen 5 mins after my call. I'm doing about 3 calls a day and still no love. People are reporting getting it after the 5th call, same day. Only 1 of my HR10's has 6.3 and that happened only because I replaced the HDD with one preloaded with 6.3. :rolleyes:

    Just got a message today saying I would get 6.3 soon and warning me to make sure my phone connection was working.

    Funny thing was that the message appeared today (Friday) but was dated Wednesday -- as if it had been sent then.

    I checked my Phone status and saw that the connection was working and that the download had already occurred (Restart pending). Silly message! ;)

    I got my notice on Wednesday. I forced a phone call and a restart and nothing. I tried again today (Friday) and I'm at 6.3a now! :up:

    Didn't take long to install... maybe about a half hour. Folders are cool. :cool:

    I got the notice today Friday and it was dated Wednesday. I also forced a daily call but no change. Looks like about a two day delay before the update arrives from the above posts in this thread.

    I got the update message Wednesday (9/27), forced a daily call, no upgrade. The receiver was scheduled for a daily call at 1:40am Saturday. As of this morning, I now have the 6.3a upgrade. Folders are definitely COOL! Zip code is 281XX.

    I received the 6.3 update message today, although it was dated 9/27. Normally my unit calls in about 2AM, but the next scheduled call shows as Sat (today) afternoon at 2:07 PM. Guess we'll see later if anything occurs.

    Zip code here is 242xx.

    Hooked up to a phone line for the first time in six months a week or two ago, so calls would start again. Got the notice on 9/27 that the update was coming, and it told me at that point my next call would be 10:37 am today, Saturday, 9/30.

    At 10:45 am, it still said it would call at 10:37. That's not good. Have forced several calls now; still no update, still no "pending restart." Sigh. It says my next call will be on 10/2.

    I'm in 07xxx. Meh.

    I hate waiting, but I have again adopted the philosophy that "all good things will come to those who wait"

    I noticed that people are saying there is no message about the upgrade. I got a message on the 27th that my DVR would get an upgrade. It looks like this:

    Subject: 6.3 Software Upgrade
    From: DIRECTV
    Date: Wed 9/27

    ATTENTION: Upcooming HD DRV upgrade requires phone line connection!

    If you have the HD DVR you'll soon be receiving our version 6.3 software upgrade. The upgrade will only occur if your phone line is connected.

    Thank you for being a loyal DIRECTV customer.​

    Addition: I neglected to mention that I haven't gotten the update yet.

    No message here. I'm on 6.3a and had a lockup this morning. I needed to unplug in order to reset.
