Advertisements This goes back a good ways. When I got my second Series 1, I intended it for the TV room, but it wouldn't work with the phone line in there, which was odd since the phone worked fine. (Think the TiVo said "no dial tone".) Repeated attempts and jiggling of wires did no good. The TiVo was moved to the living room "temporarily", where it did work with the phone line. It's been there ever since, with it and the original set for different IR codes. Any idea WHY there was a problem in the TV room? I ask now because....get ready for it... I may be getting a used Series 2 with LIFETIME. Thing is, unless I junk one of the Series 1s (which are both working fine, unsubbed), there's really no place for the S2 but in the TV room. You know...where TiVos apparently don't like the phone line? Could it be reversed polarity on the phone wires, or something else I can't think of?
