Ok, I went out and bought a drive in June, went away in July and August, and now the summer is over and still no sign of the upgrade in the Washington, D.C. area. I've given up and started using my new hard drive for data backups and will go and get another one for DVR usage. Any updates on when we can expect the upgrade out here?
Same here in Dallas (error and try again message), but after an hour or so Wednesday AM, it activated. Today I successfully activated the "multi-hub feature" , with a dialog telling me it would take 2-4 minutes, but more like 12. Did work.
I have release 1.9 build 10.95
VHO ID 3301
platform ID QIP-7200 P2
So far all pretty positive here!
A friend of mine in the DC area just switched to FIOS and he received a new box with 1.9 on it. I am hoping they do the roll out to the rest of us in the DC area.

Did he invite you over to check it out? If this is true it could be closer than we think to VHO 04. I sure hope so been waiting along time for this. I believe we are in the same DAC. I'm still curious though on how the slow spin process works. Does any of the testers out there know how they choose the inital slow spin in a market? Anyone know or heard which DAC in the East will be next?

Why not have a systemwide release of 1.9 img before this happen? Let us all enjoy the release before dooms day.
Perhaps it is why Virginis and DAC3 with MD, VA and Washington DC is last. Might be a good thing I get it last or don't get it. TiVO shares content between boxes, did they get sued? Verizon has had MRDVR for a while, what about the SAT providers, did the get sued? Multi hub is the only thing I see as being new in the game. I don't see that it is justified. Only thing I see is Cablevision being in bed with this outfit, and a way to go after the competion. Cablevision wants a monopoly.
1 thing we know for sure is the non-offical statement for DAC's 1,9,5, and 3 is not correct as far as the order being released, So what is the order going to be now? DAC 9 has already been skipped, How will the order follow now?
They do it by DAC.
Two Dacs are done (13 and 7)
Four to go.
VHO Area DAC 1 Carrolton, TX 1 2 Temple Terrace, FL 7 3 Pomona, CA 1 3A Palm Springs, CA 1 4 Silver Spring, MD 3 5 Queens, NY 5 6 Burlington, MA 5 6A Providence, RI 5 7 Freehold, NJ 9 8 Philadelphia, PA 9 9 Richmond, VA 3 9A Norfolk, VA 3 10 IN Sold to Frontier 11 Pittsburgh, PA 7 12 OR Sold to Frontier 13 WA Sold to Frontier 14 Harrisburg, PA 13 15 Buffalo, NY 13 15A Syracuse, NY 13 15B Albany, NY 13
Some non-official sources say the remaining order is
DAC 1, 9, 5, and last 3.
I believe DAC 9 was scheduled as per peoples postings that said the coming soon was on their screen, and it went away. Perhaps the East coast strike had something to do with it. I have no idea who is getting what when. But skipping to the West coast to keep things moving only seemed fair. Then at some point coming back East to us. I do know based on this list that 9 was before 3. Now if Verizon had not done what they had, it would have delayed the release for everyone, and the perhaps I would see it next year. I believe it was a good business decision to do what was done. We will all see 1.9 at some point so I can wait.
So the best we can tell from the messages here is that DAC 1 was the last to get 1.9?
We don't even know who has actually gotten the latest notification of the install.
I would hope for a steady roll out, but it doesn't seem to be that way.
I've also had an esata drive standing by waiting.
