Okay it's been about 2 1/2 weeks now with my forcing daily connections and still no update, I even tried the Pitt # for a few days but it didn't make a difference.
I had read here that if the WeaKnee's replacement drive was considered a hacked drive it would never update so I emailed them with my questions and got a response:

"It's default. But generally, with DirecTV units, each OS version is downloaded once per machine. So if you already have received the current version on your drive, you'll need to wait until a new version becomes available to see the 6.2 update."
So what do you think of their response and does it sound now like I'll never get 6.4a, or as suggested in another thread it will take several weeks so I just need to be patient and keep forcing calls? My phone plan has unlimited long distance so would you suggest using the long distance Pitt # or my local toll-free #?
