Well, after many hours of entering dialing prefixes, having the Vonage techs set my packet size to .1, hooking up DSL filters, using NY 212 area codes, purchased the external modem from eBay, etc I cannot get my series 1 (I own two) or 2 (I own one) DirecTV TiVo's to dial out. Only a handful of times have I been able to get past the "connecting" step then it fails on negotiating.

I have Qwest DSL 1.5M down/1.0M up, my ping times to yahoo.com are between 50-60ms.

I would love to use the TurboNet cards but wonder how much longer my Series 1 boxes will live. DTV won't upgrade to 4.0 so I cannot use the USB ports for ethernet.

If someone has a miracle answer please let me know. Otherwise I have to cancel this weekend as I am approaching my 14 day trial.

Thanks

I apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced with Tivo and Vonage. Please keep in mind that Vonage is not at fault when it comes to your device not working correctly. This is a problem with Voip technology in general as it was not intended for the usage TiVo needs. You may want to try the serial cable here http://www.9thtee.com/tivo-dt2.htm. Many customers have had success with this solution. Send me a pm if you require any further assistance. Surprised

Thanks,

Steve

I have one of those cables from the external modem that I purchased. Is there a link with good instructions for the serial connection? I would rather not have to hookup my laptop over to each one every two weeks.

I do not personally have the directions for this type of procedure but I would venture to guess if you sent an email to the site admin where they are listed to purchase you should be able to request a pdf or word document explaining how to set this up. If your tech oriented there are also other devices that can be purchased from that site modifying your original TiVo box to support wireless internet connections or even wired CAT5 cabling. Bear in mind any modifications void your TiVo warranty.

Man - just get a (wireless) router and hook your TIVO(s) into your network - then the boxes will download program guide data through the web. And you will be able to make use of Home Media Options such as Streaming Music and Pictures, Online Scheduling and soon Tivo2Go.

I mean you have the Broadband connection already - so the router is not really a big investment and the setup will be a snap. Just remember to buy wireless USB (wireless setup) or USB to Ethernet (wired) adapters for your TIVO(s)...

I wish it was that easy. You have to remember that the DTiVo's don't have the USB ports enabled. Plus the fact that I have two series one machines Smile It would work on my one series two IF they enabled the USB.

Oops sorry my bad - ok - go here

Just search all the forums for "Vonage". I read some pretty good tips and "workarounds" that some people there suggested.

You do not need to dial out in order for your DTivo to keep working. You will only be nagged by tivo every couple of weeks. From what I've read, you can still order PPV, etc. You just can't activate software updates (they download through the satellite, but are activated when you dial in). But the sw updates hardly make any difference to DTV users. We NEVER get any new features.

The additional money to Verizon is not worth paying just for Tivo to dial up. I have 3 Direct Tivos and I recently canceled my Verizon. A-OK here.

There are rumors of DTivos getting a new software update (v6) which will enable the USB on the back of the DTivo, hence enabling network access. When this happens, I'll bring my Tivos to a neighbors, get the updates, then connect it back to my LAN. Until then, who cares. It is no big deal.
