Timing of upgrade question


I have two Series-2 Hughes DirecTivos (DVR-40s) that I am planning on running the Hinsdale upgrade on (replacing one of the hard drives with a 160GB drive and putting the old drive from that one as a second drive into the second unit). They are currently running software version 6.2. However, I don't know if I should do it yet. I had Directv service on both of the receivers up until Jan of this year when I lost my job. Since then I have been using the Tivo functionality (playing all of my kids shows that were recorded on the Tivo) but they have not been hooked up to the satellite. I have a new job now and will be moving to Indiana, where I have Directv scheduled to come out and install the satellite dish and rehook up my two DirecTivos. Should I wait to do the upgrade until they hook everything up, or can I just do it now? I'm assuming that both of the units will upgrade to new software versions after I hook them up and I am not sure whether doing the upgrade now will screw that up or will not enable me to receive some of the benefits from the new software. I have more time now, but I don't want to screw anything up with the reconnecting of service.

Sorry for the convoluted question and thanks in advance for your help.

The current software version is still 6.2.Up grading the drives should not mess anything up. You can upgrade without losing your current recorded shows.
