    Shows you how much i followed the update since I dont have the working unit :)



    CRT? I guess it's different on other tvs but on my hitachi it's noticeable. I can come home and if i forgot i kicked down to burn something, i can see it. I can't say there's a diff between 480p, 720 or 1080 because i've never compared, but 480i bites for anything i watch. So i dont.

    Man, you are on a roll. :D I do remember when I first got my Dish Network 6000 in early 2001. When they would change the demo loop, people (including me) would be all excited over at AVS. LOL.

    All I can say is WooHoo! for 6.3 on the HR10-250. Earl, I know it must have been killing you not to give moer details in teh last few days and Rich Peterson, don;t let the bastards get you down.

    I will have to say, that MRV between my 2 HR10's would be the icing on teh cake, but even if that does not work out, I would be extremely happy with folders and similar speed to the SD units running 6.2. I am super glad i ran extra coax and 2 cat 5 to each TV location in my new house. Now I just have to hope that the update does not hit at the end of July while I am in the process of moving.

    AstroDad -
    Hopefully over the next couple days I will get the details on "when" and how... and if there will be any type of priority list signup.

    Lee -
    Nah, wasn't killing me... I am just glad that people understand that I wasn't blowing smoke up their tail pipes these past three months.

    Any chance that 6.3 will output 480i to composite/S-Video and 720p or 1080i to component at the same time? Or is that a hardware limitation?

    Unfortunately that is a hardware limitation.

    I wonder if MRV HD content is worth doing - I expect the time to xfer between units is probably going to be no faster than SD --> SD TiVO. BUT... it will allow me to remove the SD TiVO that is sitting on top of the HR10-250 I suppose.

    I have been reading this thread and was motivated yesterday to make a call from my HD-Tivo since I hadn't made one since last August. :D I made the call which took a long time and it ended with a message that said "Pending Restart" which seemed to predict that the new upgrade would be downloaded 7-10. I awoke this morning and went to check on the HR-10 and the first thing I did was hit the now playing button which responded in less than 5 seconds. I was very happy considering it usually takes about 30-40 seconds and I figured the upgrade had come in. When I went to settings the machine says that it still has the 3.15 software so it appears that I didn't get the upgrade last night.

    Question: Could the long overdue phone call have helped me out with the responsiveness of the now playing button? That's the only thing I can figure. Anyone know?

    You probably upgraded from 3.1.5e (or 3.1.5d) to 3.1.5f. The increase in responsiveness is likely due to the fact that it rebooted to install the update.

    So, maybe I should ask it another way. For the many of us who have no idea what is meant by MFS Browser or SwSystem...

    Am I correct in assuming that I should continue my habit of every 2 weeks or so, drag out my 50ft telephone cable and lay it across the LR to the kitchen and force the call? IOW, there is no way to know from a vanilla box that I have an update that has been downloaded. I have to force the call to force the update to get the message...

    Dang, looks like I will have to make a daily call. Right now I'm at 606 days without a daily call.

    With MRV, will I be able to output the video to another tv? Right now our HDTivo is hooked up to the tv in the living room. If I want to watch something in our bedroom, would Ihave to run a a/v cable to the tv in there? Or is there a way to do it wireless?

    Would this version enable ethernet in the back?

    The official 6.3 version will not, I am sure, enable networking nor MRV. Our speculation is that the features will be there but disabled, and can be enabled with hacking, just as with 6.2.

    MRV requires another TiVo to receive the program. It is not "send to a remote TV".
