I just turned on the unit that has the 6.3e update(I didn't know it had it at first) and everything was/is slow. when I hit live tv" I was stuck at a black screen for atleast a minute before a pic showed up. no guide or anything. I went back to the menu and it was fine. I went back to live tv and again everything was/is super slow. I hit the guide and that took a minute to show up. switching channels from within the guide also nets a slow response. I don't like this update at all.
Only for the first few minutes. After everything had a chance to catch up and synch with the sattelites everything went back to normal for me. Not to be too much of a smart a**, a change of batteries sometimes helps too. My original remote batteries lasted something like two years and the remote worked sporadically for a while until I replaced them.
I still hate this update. everything is still acting the way it was when I posted before. its not as slow as it was then but almost though. I guess I may be planning an HDD purchase soon just in case. plus, its rebooting every single day now which it never did before this update.
I pulled the phone line to my other one until i know whats going on here.
I haven't updated my SD tivos to 6.3e yet (no MRV of course), but my HR10 that I did upgrade hasn't seemed to have changed one bit. Bare in mind that if the alternate partition set the new software is installed on has bad sectors, it doesn't matter what software version is installed there, some problems (slowness, freeze-framing, etc) are guaranteed to arise.
