    I am on vacation and the house I am in has a dish and OTA antenna. I brought my HR10/250 with me to record some OTA shows when we are not in. It comes up on the screen that a phone line needs to connected and tested prior to doing any recording. I can connect a phone line, but what happens if I use it and it is not the one my account is registered with.

    How do I get this working?

    It should not be a problem to test the phone connection.

    C*** the phone lines do not work. DSL works, but cannot get a dial tone on the phone lines.

    Is there a way around this problem??

    Tell your neighbor your phone is broken and borrow theirs for 3 minutes.

    I have thought about trying to do this, but won't it need to be connected to the dish?
