    I have an old HDR112 Philips. It has suddenly stopped making the call out. When u run a phone test Preparing works, dialing works, but connecting just spins then says service not answering. I know the phone line is good. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Have you tried a different number?

    If you know what number it is trying to call try calling it with a phone and see if it is indeed answering or not.

    In the past, I had some luck using codes from:

    In order to lower the download speed with a noisy phone line.

    Series 1 TiVos are notorious for internal modems that get partially or fully damaged by spikes on the line that other things don't even notice.

    There's a very good chance that this is the cause of your problem.

    But it could be the TiVo servers just acting up again.
