Tivo THR-22 Dial in Problem

Hi New to tivo forums. A few weeks ago I retired my old Directv Tivo and upgraded to the new THR-22 HD tivo. There are a few problems one is it will not dial in and another is it keeps recording enhanced content. My question is what is the enhanced content it is downloading a couple of times a day? Nothing shows up in the now playing. It is always on channel 9981 when it does this. Today a directv technician came out and replaced my tivo with a new one. It has the same issue's as the old one. So I am thinking it is the software version 018A. Is there an update? Driectv says nothing they can do it is tivos problem.

The enhanced content recording is something you have to put up with - it is the showcases and similar things. Regular TiVos have done this for many years. I have not noticed it interfering with use, but your experience may be different.

As for dialing in, for best results you should have the box connected to the Internet - no dialin is required. You can do without the phone line entirely if you want.
