    I have two series 2 units that connect over my wireless network. Problem I have is that our wireless network runs off our cell phones. So is only operational when we are here (evenings). Tivo choses to connect to the internet at random intervals. Is there any way to set that to happen during the night when we are here and our internet is on? I hate when it tries to connect during the day and we are not here and therefore our internet connection is not on.

    The only way I can think of is to just force the connection when you are around with your phones.

    Are you there overnight?

    Does one or more of those cell phones have to be in a special cradle or attached to a special cable for this scheme to work?

    Do you have a regular wireless router whose WAN port connects to this cell phone lash-up?
