I'm after some advice on what to check next for a problem that's just started with my Broadband and Tivo.
I've normally got my Tivo connected to a very slow (256K) broadband link (we live in the middle of no-where!). Everything has been fine with the Tivo for years, and I've had no problems with Daily Calls for ages either.
However, on Friday, we had a power failure for about 2 hours and that seems to have wiped out my ADSL router (being replaced by Sky, but that could all take some time).
So, I want to be able to connect my Tivo to my alternative Broadband, which is 4MB Satelite link (Astra). I haven't connected the Tivo to this link before as there are strict usage limits, so use the slow Sky link for things such as daily calls.
I've now got Tivo on the Satellite Broadband part of my home network. It's IP address is in the correct range for that network, and I can access Tivoweb from within that home network without any problems at all.
The problem is that, when I do a Test Call or Daily Call (via the Turbonet card), I get "Dialing : Done", then "Connecting - Failed. Number unavailable" (after a few minutes of just sitting there). The last successful Daily Call was late afternoon on the Friday of the power failure.
I initially thought that my turbonet card might have been zapped by the power problem as the Sky Router went. But, as I can access Tivoweb absolutely fine, I don't think I've got a hardware problem?
I've turned off all access controls and restrictions in the satellite broadband router.
I've also seen a post from Mikerr saying to make sure this:
puts $conn "Content-Length: 0"
puts $conn "IDB_TIMESTAMP: $now"
is in /tvlib/tcl/tv/Ident.itcl (transparent proxy problem). I got all excited when I saw that post, but then found that I already had both lines in my file anyway!
Have also tried reboots of everything too.
As I can get to Tivoweb OK, I'm pretty sure it's a problem with getting through my ISP, but not sure what to try next.
There's nothing in my Kernel logfile for around the times of the test calls.
Hope someone can help. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but the Tivo has been so well behaved for so long, I've forgotten most of what I did know about setting it up! Cheers, Steve
