View Full Version : DirecTV Tivo And Wireless Connection
01-28-2006, 12:19 PM
I have a Directv dual receiver Tivo and would like to use a wireless USB adapter for the phone connection. I see many use it with Tivo 2 and other brands, but can I use it with my system?

Unless you have the R10 or R15 DirecTV DVR, check out the "Zipper" thread here.

Only certain 802.11b adapters work with 6.2; 802.11g adapters will not work at all. Look here (http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv2006.htm?) for a list.
There's no real need for the TiVo to "phone home" with a DirecTv one; all of the guide data come from the satellite. If you want to do things such as HMO and MRV, then there is a use for a network connection, but I don't think you' ll be very happy with the speed of 802.11b with MRV. I posted a workaround for that here (http://forum.ptvupgrade.com/showthread.php?t=2460).
