    I was all prepared to see this waiting for me yesterday, as my HR10-250 showed up in my remote booking list, and it confirmed a request. Alas, not updated, and a phone call did not initiate the update. I'll try again Friday.:(

    I need a refresh, as I do not play with this box much. Does a phone line need to be hooked up for it to get the update (HR-10-250) ?? Will it continue to work without the update??

    Yes, for a stock HR10-250, it must be hooked up to a phone line to update. The software downloads from the satellite but will not install itself until the HR10-250 can make a call.

    The HR10-250 will continue to work without the update, however, you will not get the new features discussed above nor will you be able to use the remote booking DVR scheduler.

    Is this for all DirecTivo's? I have an older one that I would like to use remote scheduling on, but not sure what model it is.

    Is the letterbox/pan and scan option under video new? I haven't played with the SD TiVo for awhile.

    I'm still on 6.3f and I have the AudioDRC setting on 2 SDDirecTivo's. I never noticed it before and it is set wrong for my setup. But it only applies to DD Audio and I never use that on my SD machines anymore.

    I guess it is as my 6.3f has only the old 4:3 and 16:9 options that have always been there.

    I;m pretty sure the 4:3 and 16:9 options have always been there. I don't think they actually do anything either.

    this is with 4:3 selected. How long does it take before the receiver shows in the drop down menu. It updated to 6.4 this morning.

    What brand/model Tivo do you have? This update is just for Series 2 DirecTV/Tivos.

    My SD-DVR40 updated to 6.4a, but the receiver is not listed in DVR Scheduler. Only my HR10's and HR20's are shown, not my SD unit. Anyone else?

    Bug still present- clock still flashes when you enter S-P-S-<instant replay>-S.

    I forced a call yesterday and updated my Hughes HDVR2 DirecTivo to 6.4a. All new features are there except the DVR scheduler on the website does not show my tivo for recording. Anybody else have this problem?

    6 minutes between posts. If iamjemhadar is like me, he was probably still typing his question while you were posting yours. ;) :D

    Oh, and my units do show up on the website

    One of the listed improvements is "Fixes for Service Labels". What are service labels and what was broken/fixed?

    I'm not sure I know, but the wording came directly from the source.
