    Good to know, at least it is there. Thank you! Hopefully I'm getting it and things will be back to normal soon. I suppose there's nothing I can do to speed it up...

    Some stats of the spool - 101W, tp27, PID 0x03f2 at 100 Kbps:
    last/total sections (in hex):
    [3484] 03F2: TiVo Segment/Section=00001412/00001657 -> 5719 decimal
    full cycle took ~32 mins (measured from 12:11:40pm to 12:43:29pm)
    A size I would estimate as ~ 30 MB : 4KB per segment (max) x 5719.

    My SAMSUNG SIR-S4080R was automatically updated to 6.4a by a software download at 2:00am this morning Sunday June 17th. All network & local PBS channels are back & working with the exception of NBC – ch 4 in my local Los Angeles market.

    litzdog911 – Many, many thanks for your help which is very much appreciated. I am sure I would never have received the 6.4a update without your help – thanks again.

    On Saturday morning, June 16th on checking my system information I found the message ‘pending restart’. Since I would be watching the 2012 Euro Soccer Championship & US Open Golf for most of the day I didn’t want to force a restart. I also didn’t want to force a restart today, Sunday, June 17th for the same reasons.

    On Saturday evening I thought I would try & force a call to shift the next scheduled call and avoid any possibility of an automatic restart over the weekend that would interrupt my viewing but received an onscreen message saying ‘this feature was not available until after a software service download @ 2:00am’. I did nothing further & this morning, Sunday June 17th my system had automatically updated to 6.4a & all the missing network & local channels were back & working with the exception of NBC – my local Los Angeles Ch 4 that is still a blank screen although it is in the guide. Because I receive & can view the NBC west coast network feed on Ch 393 I will not either be clearing my to do list & program guide and/or restart/reset my system as my current to do & season pass lists are all there & have recorded & are currently recording properly. I had removed all the season passes & to do list programming that required any of the missing channels prior to the software upgrade. I added them back today after the update.

    If I have any further problems as a result of the 6.4 update I will for back with an update.

    I wish everyone good luck in receiving the 6.4a update soon & again would like to thank litzdog911 for his help

    Can you give more details how exactly it was fixed ? If it could help other owners who can't get the latest 6.4a, why not share ?

    Good Lord!

    Each one must give out all the info to DTV and wait personal kick - is that you mean help other TiVo-users ?

    When the 6.4a slices are spooling with 25 mins interval 24/7 ? Perhaps you still 'knowing' the slices coming from phone line. Duh!

    TiVo has to authorize the receiver to be installed just because the slices on are on the drives, and most of them have the slices, doesn't mean anything until the daily call gets the authorization and instructions to run the update.

    So it can spool until the end of time 24/7 on the stream but never update in some cases.

    No, not everyone. Most Tivo's updated themselves just fine. But a few didn't. So they asked me to pass along the information that you've seen a few folks post here. A general fix is supposedly coming very soon from Tivo.

    So I'm one of the people who haven't gotten the update. I'm on 6.3e and have been forcing calls every day, and it's been making successful calls on its own as well. Still no update or signs of it. I called Dtv today and they are telling me that they are working on the issue But no eta and to also give TiVo a call. I haven't done that yet as I don't think it will help as TiVo will probably tell me to call Dtv... Any more info? Any help is appreciated.i can post my system info if you think it will help.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    If we (someone ?) would find a trick to check if 6.4a successfully downloaded to our drives ... I mean all slices and all are valid. For normal (not tampered) THR22 ...

    See post #89 above and provide me with your Tivo information. I'll pass it along to my DirecTV contacts to relay to Tivo. There are some things they can manually do until the broader problem is solved.

    We're not talking about the THR22. This issue applies only to the older, standard definition, DirecTV DVRs with TiVo, like the DirecTV R10, Hughes HDVR2, Samsung SIR-4080 and other similar models.

    Litzdog,

    I don't know if you had anything to do with it, but I'm on 6.4 today and all locals work. If you did anything, thanks! If you didn't have anything to do with it, thanks for all the info and guidance.

    Mike
