    Just wondering if it's me that is having daily call problems today?

    Connecting via a cachecard.
    my rc.net is
    if /sbin/insmod -f /lib/modules/turbonet2.o macaddr=00:0B:AD:C5:E0:B3 debuglevel=0 ; then
            export DYNAMIC_NET_DEV=eth0
            /sbin/ifconfig eth0 netmask mtu 1458 up
            # avoid annoying "route.tivo forgot to specify route netmask" error:
            /sbin/route.tivo add default gw netmask
    route.tivo -n gives
    /etc/rc.d # /sbin/route.tivo -n
    route_info, afname=inet, options=37
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface   U     32767  0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0
    In a recent working daily call log it goes
    08/17:06:13:09: /tvbin/TClient:  Logging camid.
    08/17:06:13:09: /tvbin/TClient:  CAM_ID not found.

    But today it's saying
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: Logging camid.
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: CAM_ID not found.

    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: dialPrefix = ,#090,
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: callWaitingPrefix == {}
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: phoneNumber = 08081050005
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: phoneAvailableDetection = 0
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: dialToneDetection = 0
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: Starting dial.expect with:
    08/21:06:47:39: /tvbin/TClient: toneOrPulse = T
    I can connect out OK from my tivo:
    # /bin/ntpdate -b
    21 Aug 17:12:28 ntpdate[427]: step time server offset 1.941368 sec
    nic_config_tivo confirms that I'm set to make the call over the network. A fresh pair of eyes may help spot the problem I hope! Ie where else does it decide whether to use the network or modem for the call?

    Ah, it was just me :). Turns out I had two hdparm lines in my rc.sysinit.author lines which weren't backgrounded.

    Quite wierd to diagnose but I got the hint from one of the few threads which contained the same message I was getting - "failed. Line unavailable".
