PostPosted: Sun Feb 06, 2005 4:13 pm    Post subject: Directv Tivo / USB / Vonage Reply with quote Back to top

OK...I got Vonage activated on all my lines in the house by removing my incoming connection to Verizon (thank to CCNADog). I have tested my home alarm system and that work fine, but now the hold up seems to be my DirecTV Tivo and regular DirecTV reciever.

The DTivo is a Series 2 (RCA DVR40) which does have the USB port. I have tried every dial out code I could find and no luck. I can get the modem to dial out (the DTV internal modem), but have no luck making a connection. Does anyone have any successful dial prefixes they have used?

With the DTV Tivo can I simply attach a USB2 wireless connection and "dial out" or get my updates this way?

Thank you

Robert

You cannot use the USB ports on a DTV box as they are not enabled. Search for Tivo on this forum and you will find plenty of codes. Good luck! It didn't work for me Sad

As far as DTV USB ports not operational...I thought by putting a #401 code or something like that would allow them to work and let's the system update?

If you have a DSR6000, supposedly you are in luck. You can slow down your modem baud rate to 19K by entering the dialing prefix - ,#019

I have a DSR6000 and I have not had any success with this as of yet. Maybe once I short out the line 2 in my linksys router (to fix the background hissing) it will work.

There are other "hacks" for DirecTivos, which usually involve purchasing an external modem.

You can find a lot of info in the Tivo Community Forum.

so far no luck for me. I have the RCA DVR40 and am going to buy the new R10 today. I tried a bunch of codes in the RCA and I can get it to dial out, but it cannot make the connection although I hear it trying. I have been reading the Tivo forum and many people say there is no requirement for the Tivo to dial out and things will work perfectly. However, I just got off the phone with DirecTV and of course, they insist on a landline phone and state that the USB ports aren't active on the series 2 models. I think DTV needs to get moving on the USB ports and get their equipment working over the Internet rather than relying on landlines. I have a lot of friends who have either moved to Voip or only use cell phones so landline use is only going to decrease.

BUT you really don't need to dial up for your Tivo to operate. It's not that big of a deal.

That's what I have been starting to understand from this forum and the Tivo forum. I would love to hear from someone who hasn't had their Tivo connected for an extended amount of time, yet has all the Tivo functionalities.

I read last night on the forum about somebody who has had it disconnected for 600+ days and all is still good!
