Has to be a staggered deployed, no? Can't imagine the impact of every SB getting a firmware refresh at the same time! Or does each CMTS just works its way down the list of SBs attached to that CMTS?

The new firmware downloaded to my modem when I restarted it from the Configuration webpage a few minutes ago.

Same here. Warm reboot was all that was necessary to get the new firmware.

Got 1.0.6.10 here in the Chicago area.

Has anyone been able to find the release notes, similar to what has been posted for other releases?

The upgrade statement is in the bootfile, when your device resets for any reason the device pulls the new bootfile. This is called the "attrition method", nice and slow. But everyone will get the new bootfile in time, sometimes it takes about two or three months.

I wonder of those last two bug fixes may fix the issue with T4 timeouts on upstream channels.

I don't know about T4 timeouts (I have not been seeing that problem), but the first reboot after the FW update did not have a T3 timeout in my logs (that is the first time I can recall seeing a reboot that did not have an initial T3 timeout in the log).

That's interesting - I will check that this weekend when I get home. I see T3 every time on restart and a missing center uplink channel.

FWIW, Sometimes I see them on my SB6141 and sometimes not. But today I saw one after each reboot.

Speed is still 25.13-down 4.28-up as it's always been. I have no idea what this means. Apparently the "Firmware Build Time" is an arbitrary date?

The "Firmware Build Time" is the time stamp that indicates the date/time that the firmware version was officially compiled and released into the wild by the manufacturer (although there are obviously delays before any given ISP does their own testing and finally delivers it to their customers).

SW Download INIT - Via Config file d11_m_sb6121_silver_c01.cm

It means that the new bootfile (AKA Config file) triggered the download of the new firmware as described by NetDog See Profile here: »Re: [Connectivity] New SB6120/6121 Firmware Released

I'm still waiting for the forced restart trigger from the CMTS, that is if Comcast knows how to use it.
