    Using the static IP addresses within the subnet is the right idea but my guess is an IP address conflict. You could try static IP addresses perhaps at the top end like 192.168.1.190 and 192.168.1.191. If you have made a Test Call a couple of times, it sounds like you are close to making a Daily Call.

    Also, a firewall may be an issue here, too. You can try to disable any firewall you have running and perhaps try turning on Guest Account in the Control Panel/User Accounts for a Daily Call test.

    These are just some ideas. Keep us posted.

    This process is frustrating. I have read this thread religiously the past 2 days as I try to set up my Tivo using the series PPP to get through the guided setup. I have tried all the suggestions and they have not worked. I know that I have set up things correctly because I get a connection. In fact, 2 times I started to verify my account after I connected. However, it only froze before it faild. Normally, I fail while negotiating.

    I have a series 2 Tivo and trying to connect to an XP box. I have rebooted, recreated files and connections, activated accounts, and disabled firewalls.

    I read in another thread that somebody had success seting up Tivo without a land line using this method. Has anybody else get as far as I did before it froze and failed? If so, what did you do to get past this hang up?

    Hey John,

    Thanks for the advice, will give it a shot when I get home in an hour or so. I'm fairly sure there's no IP conflict, but I'm increasingly concerned about the building's router.

    I know that some routers will ignore traffic from IP addresses it didn't itself give out (i.e. the one I'm assigning manually to the Tivo). And clearly, some other routers have firewalls on them. Since I don't have access to the router, I can't be sure on either, but the on/off behavior seems odd.

    Hey John,

    No good. Tried a whole slew of IP ranges and let it do DHCP too (it does get an IP through DHCP actually -- 192.168.1.31, same range I tried manually).

    99% of the time it shows "2,509" received bytes, and those two times I mentioned it did have the test call go through. Tried Guest account active and not active, both under the User Accounts panel and the actual connection's settings. Any ideas? :(

    Use static IP addresses, reboot the computer, run a Test Call and a Daily Call and send me the modem log. We might get some other inspiration?

    Keep us posted.

    Hi DoctorTeeth,

    It is tough to see your problems remotely but we'll try. Is this your Guided Setup Call? Can you reboot, run a Test Call and then a Daily Call and send us the modem log? It is OK if they fail. Perhaps the log will tell us why?

    Are you using a router? What static IP addresses did you assing? What is the IP address assigned to your computer?

    Keep us posted and good luck.

    John

    This is the guided setup. I rebooted and did a test call. The test call failed. However, I then changed the static IP addresses and the real call went to "Verifying Account Status" before it failed. I have done this before because it acts like changing the IP addresses refresh something. I do not know what.

    I am using a Linksys WRT54G router.
    The IP addresses are 192.168.1.56 and 192.168.1.57.
    This is within range of ip addresses that the router can assign. I also tried them out of range. That did not work.

    My computer IP is 192.168.1.101.

    Below is the modem log. I included the test call failed. The real call is below that, which failed when getting to "Verifying Account Status".

    any ideas would be helpful. Thanks

    Hi DoctorTeeth,

    I can see where you are completing part of the call then your connection stops communicating. It may be the call going to fast for the serial connection.

    Try slowing the call down to 19.2 Kb on both the modem you set up and the TiVo and run a test. It could be the serial cable, too. Also, try disabling the any firewall for a test.

    Keep us posted.

    Probably not the first time someone has said this, but I think the Tivo is possessed. Came home from work today to see it "pending restart"; I just rebooted it and it's installing software, the whole reason for me wanting to have it do Serial-PPP.

    I'm perplexed. I have heard two versions of how the upgrade process works:

    Story 1: The Tivo calls home, tells DirecTV it's out of date, and DirecTV sends the update over the satellite (found this story on the boards)

    Story 2: The Tivo calls home, tells DirecTV it's out of date, and DirecTV sends the update over the phone (DirecTV's Tivo team swears up and down this is the case, even when I told them I thought they were lying)

    In either event, I thought a daily call was necessary, and Tivo happily informs me that this box hasn't made a daily call successfully in 247 days. Could the test call have triggered it??? Am very surprised but also thrilled, I was about to say "screw it" and order myself an InstantCake CD and yank the darn thing apart to get the upgrade that way.

    ANYWAY ---

    I now have 6.2, I just made a successful test call, and just made a successful DAILY CALL. Have no idea what changed, but it works. Maybe it just needed a day to sit and think.

    Thanks again for all your help! It means a lot.

    I like to read notes like this! :)

    Basically, there are two routes to get 6.2 and both are triggered by a Daily Call. First is the satellite download and TiVo makes the "Daily Call" and the process to "Pending Restart" is begun.

    The second route is the information is not downloaded via the satellite and the Daily Call downloads 6.2 and again "Pending Restart". So either way a Daily Call happened unless you hacked the TiVo.

    Anyway, happy TiVoing and thanks for keeping us posted.

    Cactus,

    Thanks for the hints. I ended up taking the box to my girlfriend's house and used her vontage VOIP line. It worked good. Now I am connected via wireless adapter for updates. It works great!!!

    Hi DoctorTeeth,

    There are many ways to handle the TiVo calls. I'm glad you found one that works for you. Thanks for the update.

    Happy TiVoing! :)

    It just won't see the tivo.... possibly a cheap usb to serial cable? Any help is much appreciated. I'll check back in the morning. Thanks

    Hi jray,

    Did you force a Test Call or Daily Call? Yes, it looks like it could be the usb to serial cable.

    It could possible be your null modem cable, too.

    Keep us posted.

    yep... I forced a daily and a test, but no luck. I changed things around and read web pages for 3 days, and I must say...I give up. I was able to aquire a external modem and program it to the needed specs to communicate with tivo over vonage. I used ,#319 prefix and the prefix *99 (inplace of call waiting) to which I'm told will improve tivo's connection on Vonage, and use the NY, NY connection number. Everything works beautifully :) . Thanks, Jerry

    Hi Jerry,

    That works, too, but not quite as fast. :)

    Happy TiVoing.

    I too am having serial ppp problems. I have a directv tivo, R10. I can get information from the tivo, but I cannot get the ~ leading character, or any ~'s at all

    I followed all the instructions, am using ,#211 as my dialing prefix, just don't know what the issue could be at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is my modem log.

    RhitTivo,

    It looks like a conflict, probably hardware, that is preventing the ~ being seen at the com port assuming the edits to the mdmhayes.inf and deletion of the mdmhayes.pnf files are implemented.

    Try disabling any com port, internal modems that you don't need on your computer for a Test Call. Is the modem log that you sent the only one being created? Is there another modem log when you reboot? Is VPN active on this computer?

    Tell us a little about your setup. What kind of computer? Is it a regular com port or is it a USB-serial adapter? What instructions are you using to try accomplishing serial/PPP? Is there another computer on which you could try to install serial/PPP?

    Keep us posted.

    John

    Hello all,

    I've been scouring through all the threads the past day or so, and have not seen a configuration like mine to help me troubleshoot. Here's what I have:

    - Series 1 Tivo
    - I have a Netgear wireless router, but I have a direct connection to my PC running Windows XP
    - I have an interface cable with a stereo mini jack that plugs into the Tivo "serial" slot, which then is connected to a Null Modem, which is then connected to my PC. I have made the appropriate changes to the mdmhayes.inf file, and have changed the dialing prefix to ,#211. I have also created the connection so the two can talk. I get through the "Preparing" screen and "Dialing" screen every time without problems, but when it gets to "Connecting", it errors: "(Failed. Service not answering.)"

    Any ideas? I appreciate the help! Everyone's help to this point has been great!

    -Casey

    EDIT: Ok, I'm an idiot. I assumed that the red, green, and blue wires in my serial cord corresponded to the red green and blue wires in the wiring diagram I was following..... :eek:

    So, now that it's wired in correctly, connected first time. :up: Thanks for looking at my issue anyway :)
