    Hello,

    I recently installed and configured a new hard drive to replace one that failed. I had not set up a local phone number for my Tivo to call. This morning I checked my system information and noticed that my Tivo had placed a call. If I don't specify a local phone number what number does my Tivo call?

    How did you "install and configure" the drive? Did you get a copy from someone else? If so, it probably used whatever number they used. You can verify the number in the Phone Connections menu.

    You can't record until it makes at least one call to TiVo.

    The drive was formatted and InstantCake software was used. I never entered a phone number but Tivo still made a call.

    What number did it use?

    Let's hope it wasn't long distance. :)

    Well I don't know what number was called. I know where to set up a local number but where do I see what number is set to dial out.
