San Jose, California, 95119: Upgraded Sunday 5/22.

I just noticed the little TiVo logo is missing. Does that mean that 6.2 is now DirecTV proprietary DVR?

Just got it this weekend but not sure now that I want it. While the grouping option in the now playing list is ok, I think there's potentially a major problem with this upgrade. One of my season passes did not record. The recording history indicated that it did not record because someone had changed the settings. Since I'm the only one who uses this receiver, I know that wasn't true. There were no recording conflicts since nothing else recorded in the time slot. None of the recording options would have prevented it from recording. We've had Directv with TIVO for 3 - 4 years and it's worked without a hitch until tonight. After checking the Tivo help forums, this appears to be a problem in the regular Tivo units running version 7+ as well. So, those of you anxiously awaiting 6.2, watch out!

Maybe it's time for a new poll? I voted no originally, but finally got 6.2 last night.

Got 6.2 on one Philips on Friday, the RCA yesterday and no joy on the other Philips as of this morning - Bay Area.

So far, we've not seen any of the problems like bad color, shakey screens, etc.

Angry 6.2

directv having more problems w/6.2 may postpone untill fall,also my samsung
sir-s4080r is not even close on the list to get 6.2 even if they decide to continue
which at this point is doubtful.

Where is this information from? And just curious, how do you know your Samsung isn't close on the list? I don't believe there even is a list... the rollout should be random (other than beta testing).

Well there you go. "Having more problems...may postpone". That's good enough for me.

BTW, I received 6.2 on my second and last Tivo a few hours ago. And "having no problems".

I'm hoping my 2nd unit may get the upgrade tomorrow since my scheduled call is tomorrow. I have made a call every day since last Fri. on it and the day has never changed. probably a longshot though.

The random rollout continues... Why didn't D* enable per account instead of individual RIDs? My wife is driving me crazy that her TiVo isn't upgraded.

Change my no to a yes. I received a message yesterday asking me to make the call saying the receiver hadn't been able to make a call in 14 days, that never happened before. Call went without a hitch and now running 6.2, so far so good.
