    Ok, i'l wait around. The only "Hack" is a larger hard drive(120 gig). Other than that, totally stock.

    Tom_S did you ever get the upgrade?

    I reinstalled the Hard Drive in the MIL's (Mother-In-Law) unit and the latest backup I have is 3.1. Over 24 hours later and still no upgrade (connected to phone & sat - I have forced about 10 calls over that time).

    Nope, never got it. It is not near a phone line so it's kind of a pain to do the daily call. It's not important so I'll wait a while before trying again. Why can't they have the force switch like the HR20?

    Probably because that software isn't in the SAT stream any longer. Since Tivos are the evil step brother of the HR20 the updates will be in the stream long enough to hit most users. But if you get an older unit the only way to get the software will be through the phone calls.

    I thought you mentioned above it was making the daily calls. How long did that go on?

    Well I did a call every day for a week. The TiVo is in a closet with no phone jack. I have to run a phone line across the bedroom floor. After a week of trying I got sick of it and gave up. I don;t need the update right now anyway.
