Advertisements Just hooked up a new tivo DVR40. I entered the area code. Tried to call in and it tells me the service failed to answer. I've tried this several times over the past 2 days. I got the tivo from a friend in Austin. I had to change the area code to my area. I checked that I have a dial tone on the line. If I could see the number that is being called, I could try it from my phone to make sure it is a valid number. Is there not a list of numbers to choose from? All I get is the area code to enter. Thanks.
