    I just rebooted my hr10-250 and got this message

    Subject: 6.3 Software Update
    From: Directv
    Date: Wed 9/27


    ATTENTION: Upcoming HD DVR upgrade requries phone line connection!

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

    Thank you for being a loyal DIRECTV customer


    wierd thing is I just made it do a manual daily call that went thru fine, then i rebooted it thats when I got the message. Any one else get this message?

    Got it also, just 30 minutes ago. (The message, not the actual update!).

    I did not reboot to get it, just forced a phone call, like I do every day now & under 'messages' said I have new message.

    Here is what's interesting, have 2 HR10s, forced phone calls on both. #1 got the message, #2 has not.

    The interesting thing about this thread will be to see how long the lag between the message and the upgrade will be.

    Freightdog: It would be great if you could note if the time is consistent between your two HR10's.

    I just rebooted one of my Tivos remotely using my Treo (God bless Slingbox!). No upgrade message for me.

    Looks like I spoke too soon. I just forced a call on one of my HR10s and I have the message now too. I'll have to wait until I get home before I can force a call on my other HR10 (only have 1 Slingbox) to see if I get the message on that one too.

    Forced a call around noon and nothing. But just forced another and received the same 6.3 update message as above. Maybe there's hope after all for us poor suckers who haven't yet received the upgrade...

    I got the message also today.

    I don't know why I'm excited about this, it's just a stupid little upgrade from 3.1.5f. :rolleyes:

    I just forced a second call on the one that did not receive the message the first time. It now has also received the update notice.

    Hopefully this means a larger number of units will be getting authorized each day, now that the notice is out. Time will tell.

    I am trying but my stupid wife is always trying to fax something at the same time I am trying to force my calls. :(

    EDIT: forced call, and succeeded, but no pending restart. Hopefully it will happen soon though.

    Don't we have to be careful about making sure that it's not upgrading during something we need to have taped, or want to watch live?

    I'm asking because there is a baseball game that I need to watch tonight.
