HR10-250 call vs old TIVO

Can anyone tell me why my HR10-250 dials in every 2 days, but my old DirecTV with TIVO unit calls in every 8 days? Thanks

I think it's because the HR10-250's have never been updated to v6.2 software. Other DirecTivos used to call every couple of days before they were updated to v6.2. It doesn't really matter because they get their Guide Data from the satellite anyway.

My old series 1 Directivos, which still run the version 3 software, dial in no more than once every 8-14 days, at the least. Somewhere along the way of updates to my series 1, the frequency of the phone calls were changed to be less frequent, so much so that I often get a warning mail to make the daily call soon because it failed to make the call just once.

However, my new HD Tivo is set up call in every 2 days, even after getting the "f" update.
