    I had the house wired for network when I built it. Phone also.

    At every cable run I have both network and phone.

    How can I connect the TIVO to a network connection instead of a phone connection.

    Is there any advantage to going network over phone?

    Thanks.

    Well... you don't really need the phone lines... if you have a DirecTivo.

    It gets all it's information via the SAT signal.
    However, it will nag you... to tell you to make a phone call.

    You can "tweak/hack" your system to enable some functionality that can use that network connection though.

    Do a Search for ZIPPER.

    ...that is, if you don't already have one with your cable/DSL access setup.
