    I don't have it yet either....forcing calls like mad, even tried changing call in #'s but alas to no avail.

    I see were it says 6.3a but where would it say 'Pending Restart' if I do get it, so I can restart ASAP.

    How many people WITHOUT the upgrade to 6.3b have STOCK machines? No hacks and no hard drive upgrades. My one machine that has not been upgraded has 2 brand new 400gb hard drives that were installed with Instant Cake. This machine is still at 3.1.

    I have a stock machine. No hacks, no mods, no 6.3b. Forced 3 calls yesterday and one about 30 minutes ago. The dropouts during last night's football game were numerous.

    T-minus 9:40 to the 24 premier.

    That's what I did. I also switched back and forth between local access phone numbers. Status will say "pending restart" instead of "succeeded." Then just go back a couple of screens and select restart recorder.

    I finally got my 6.3b after last night's game.

    It sounds like some people are only forcing one or two calls a day. Not enough!!

    With 24 coming on at 8PM, I would probably try every half hour.

    Good luck!

    No 6.3b here... still stuck at 6.3a on my "stock unhacked" HR10-250 even after forcing NUMEROUS phone calls to closest local number AND changing to another number. Guess its time to call D* to see if they really CAN reset my unit so it will get the 6.3b download.

    Good news is my "main" HR10-250 with 2 new 250GB Seagate 7200.10 drives running PTVnetHD 1.1 and InstantCake SE 3.1.5f is recording fine. I'll upgrade it to 6.3b if and when the 6.3x bugs are gone AND PTVnetHD & InstantCake are updated to handle the final "stable" 6.3x software. In the meantime 3.1.5f runs fine although

    Has anybody had any luck with D* resetting their HR10-250 for the 6.3b update or should I just keep dialing randomly to get this update?

    I am still at 6.3a and they said yesterday the only thing they could do was send an HR20. I said I would wait a few days. Nothing again this morning.

    So you're saying that the more you force, the more likely you are to get it?

    I was thinking you force the call and the update was either in the stream or it wasn't.

    I got my upgrade on tuesday. (Although I didn't know) That night when Boston Legal was recording there was a reboot. The difference was that although I missed 5 minutes or so of programming, the recording picked up once it went through its reboot. That had never happened before. Hardly acceptable. But different. since then no audio dropouts, and knock on wood no reboots.

    It is in the stream, but the phone call authorizes the download through the stream. You won't get it until you force a call and get a "pending restart" status.

    It will say it on the screen after hitting select (after the phone call completes).

    DTv told me they cannot force the update after repeatedly telling me they could so I either stay at 6.3a or instant cake the HD back to 3.1.5f and let it try to update to 6.3b as 6.3a should have been replaced by 6.3b in the stream. :mad:

    Forgot to add they offered me the HR20 for free as they said my HR10 was obviously defective.

    Your HR10 is NOT defective. Keep forcing the calls and look for "pending restart." You need the call to authorize the download.

    And there's NOTHING more "defective" than your average HR20. Just like the one that's currently collecting dust in my closet.

    I just got 6.3b around 7:15pm. After the initial reboot/installation my Tivo has booted twice once while watching 24!! So much for 6.3b. D* is getting my call tomorrow, I am 100% fed up with their crap.
