I made the mistake of switching to Comcast Digital cable over a year ago (BIG mistake), and now I want to switch back to Directv. I had Directv before that with a Directv Tivo that I bought at Best Buy (either Philips or Hughes-can't remember). I still have it, even though the Comcast guy tried to walk off with it and I spent 10 minutes explaining to him that I bought it and he couldn't take it away with him anymore than he could walk out the door with my computer. Anyway... I know that if I go back to Directv I'll get a free DVR with my new cable package. The big question that I have is this: I no longer have a land line to connect to the DVR. I know I don't need it to run Directv (I do use PPV all the time, but my understanding is that I can just order PPV on the internet). Do I need a land line when I have Directv installed? Can I use my old Tivo? Should I use the new one? I just had a new jack put in with a splitter that I can use for either cable or an internet connection, if that makes any difference.
