I have just signed on to this form and have searched the topics on the usage of the phone line. The information I found was a little dated so I am more that likely asking a question that has been touched on a number of times. I am hoping to find new information.
The DVR 120 that I have requires an analog land based line to operator. After a discussion with the DirecTV Tech rep he suggested this form to find an alternate to the Land Based line. Of course the Cell phone would be the best but it does not appear to be an alternative at this point.
When asked about a direct connect to the Internet via USB port the response I received was that the USB port could be used but DirecTV did not support this function.
Oh course when I asked what a person was to do in the middle of the boondocks and no land-based line was available the answer was "we do not sell to them". This I find hard to accept because most companies would find ways to sell to as many segments of the population as could afford a buck.
Is there an alternative?
Thanks for your help.
