There are two types of calls that a DirecTiVo makes. The TiVo call is the one that you can initiate manually and also the one that is made on the date shown on your status screen.

There is also a DirecTV call. These calls are nominally toll free calls. They are made approximately monthly on command from DirecTV delivered by the satellite. However, if you have put a local number in the dialing prefix, these calls will no longer be toll free.

The calls that are happening repeatedly are calls to DirecTV. Note that the repeated calls is apparently not a Vonage problem. It has been reported by POTS users in the tivo community forums. DirecTV refuses to admit there is a problem at this time, they will tell you that there are two modems in the unit and the DirecTV modem is more sensitive. This does not explain the simultaneous failure of huge numbers of DirecTiVo units simultaneously.

The only reason that there have not been more complaints is that most POTS users will never see the number of toll free calls being made from their homes.

If you have this problem and have not encoded a local number into the dialing prefix then it is not using minutes from your plan because the calls are toll free. I currently have twice the number of free calls (mainly these calls) than I do plan calls. I expect almost 200 minutes of DirecTV calls this billing period.

If you want to get TiVo working with your Vonage line you have four and one half options.

First you can disconnect the phone line except to make TiVo calls monthly. You will lose the ability to order PPV by remote however you can order them via the website. You may not be allowed to subscribe to sports packages.

Second you can attempt to make your DirecTiVo work without putting a local number in the dialing prefix.

You can also combine these two options and only put the local number in the dialing prefix when you need to make a TiVo call. It is possible that your DirecTV calls to the toll free number may eventually succeed, your unit may make quite a few calls, but they should be free calls.

Third you can interface your TiVo to a computer to make the calls.

Fourth, you can connect an external modem to make the calls.

I have recently posted my settings so you can search for my recent posts in this forum to find them. They may be of help.

What is the "VTECH 8100-2" adapter? Is this something that Vonage is now handing

You can't, at this time the VTECH 8100 does not have any type of analog capability
What are the available telephone adapters out there? I will just hook it up
