    My Internet has been flaky which I can fix when I am home but I am planning on a two week vacation later this year and won't be home to reboot my modem. Will manual recordings work if the guide data runs out? The TiVo has lifetime so it does have service but do you have to connect periodically ti TiVo for it to work. I do not have a land line.

    I know TiVo stops counting a lifetimed unit as active if it hasn't called in in 60 (or was it 90) days - but I'm not sure if the TiVo itself stops functioning.

    In any case it can go way longer than 2 weeks before it could possibly be an issue. So you're safe for your vacation.

    I plugged my series 2 DT with lifetime in for the first time in 5 years. It took some time to update the guide data, other than that I had no problems with it.
