    I am having problems when I get to step #3 of the set-up proceedure. While trying to set-up a New Connection when I get to the part that says Select "Accept Incoming Connections" and click Next
    My computer hangs for a couple of minutes and then gives me an error message saying that I need to have Router and Remote Access Service Started. When I try to start Router and Remote Access Service it fails to start and gives me an error 2 message. I tried the New Connection Wizard on a different computer (at work) and was able to get through the set-up even though it has the Router and Remote Access Service disabled. I think the solution might just be something simple like I have something shut off that needs to be turned on or that I did something for security reasons years ago and then forgot about it. XP has been so stable that I can't remember the last time that I had to mess with it. I seam to remember that I did change some NetBios Bindings a few years ago but cannot remember exactly what I did and it appears that SP2 has changed the appearance of everything. Anyways, any sugestions would be appeciated otherwise I am afraid that I will have to re-install windows.

    Hi Pete and cmccallion,

    What is the brand and model of your cable/dsl modem and router?

    It appears that you have edited your modem logs? I don't see the top part of the logs that contain the reference to the edited mdmhayes.inf?

    "01-20-2005 21:04:20.734 - Modem type: Communications cable between two computers
    01-20-2005 21:04:20.734 - Modem inf path: mdmhayes.inf
    01-20-2005 21:04:20.734 - Modem inf section: M2700"

    It appears that the PC is talking to the TiVo in both cases.

    "01-24-2005 21:59:27.484 - Read: Total: 648, Per/Sec: 19, Written: Total: 386, Per/Sec: 12"

    The double entry is when TiVo doesn't make the initial connection and tries a second time making the 3 minute or so call.

    So short of a IP related issue, it could be firewall, router or cable/dsl modem issue. For the IP address, I would look at the address assigned by my router beginning with 192.168.xxx.xxx and perhaps assign two address. You can see this address by going to Network Connections and clicking on Local Area Connection and in the lower left hand corner you should see something like 192.168.1.21. Assign two IP like 192.168.1.28 and 192.168.1.29 as an example.

    If your connections is directly to the DSL/Cable modem with an address on my computer similiar to 24.2.133.xxx, you may want to look at network address translation issues as suggested in Otto's troubleshooting section. The advantage of using a router is typically NAT issues are handled with the router.

    If your complete log is too long, then PM me with a copy of it.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    John

    SUCCESS!!!!

    John I would like to thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed explanation. My problem turned out to be the ip addresses I was using. I was just copying ones from other posters without knowing why. This time I added 7 to my ip address like you had done in your example and although I still don't know why I was doing this, it worked the first time on the test and download.

    Thanks again for your assistance and it looks now like I might get a better sleep tonight - this was really bugging me!

    Pete

    Congratulations, Pete! Your persistence paid off. I'm happy the other posters and I were able to help.

    The reason for the two IP addresses close to your XP computer's IP address is so the static IP addresses you assign will be able to get through the router and not be filtered out by the 'network mask'. Also, by using an address several addresses above your computer's address as a static IP address makes it remote that the router will assign a conflicting addrress to other devices. Most routers I've had experience with assign IP addresses in ascending order.

    OP, KS
    OK, I've read everything I can find, and I still can't get it to work. If I connect in HyperTerminal I get the appropriate "garbage" starting with ~ and even a couple of User Requests. So, I think that means that Tivo is talking to my PC.

    I am assigning IP's. I am on a cable connection with a D-Link DI-704P router. I will add my modem log. It looks to me like it's not recognizing the ~ as a ring. I updated the mdmhayes.inf file and deleted the pnf file a rebooted. I turned off all the firewalls I could find. The router is supposed to have one built in, so I will try hooking straight to the cable modem, but in the meantime, here's the modem log.

    Hi Tami,

    So far your problem looks easy. My guess is the reason why it doesn't recognize ~ as a ring is because it doesn't recognize the edited mdmhayes.inf file. Possibilities for this are 1) you did not add the changes to mdmhayes.inf file, 2) after adding the changes to the mdmhayes.inf file you did not delete the mdmhayes.pnf file, or 3) you put the edited mdmhayes.inf file in some other directory besides the default C:\Windows\inf directory when you deleted C:\Windows\inf\mdmhayes.pnf.

    Add the specified changes to your mdmhayes.inf file in the C:\Windows\inf directory, delete the mdmhayes.pnf file in the same directory and reboot your computer. Try a test call and post here if it does not work.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    John

    Edited to correct the transposed 'hayesmdm' to the corrected 'mdmhayes'.

    Hi strange,

    Can you tell me a little more about your computer? Do you have a standard serial port on your computer or are you using an RS-232 adapter to connect to the computer? It almost looks like an IRQ conflict? Are you running any other serial port software on your computer?

    Sorry that you had to reinstall XP!

    Hey cactus46, thanks for answering me, I've been searching around and it appears that I have the same problem as Bob did in this post:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=204260&highlight=ppp

    I am using a headphone/serial(D9) cord that I bought from somewhere. I have a gender changer and a D9/D9 Null Modem between the cord and my computer. I have use my serial port before to program an externial modem, so I am pretty sure that it is good. At this point I am open to any ideas. This might help, if I uninstall the c to c connection and then reboot I can make it all the way through the new connection wizard, I can then reinstall the c to c connection go to the "incoming connection" and configure it. But I cannot get iit to connect. If I reboot the incoming connection is gone and I still cannot connect. The only serial stuff that I have connected are my keyboard, mouse and null moden(COM2). Is that too much? Hmmmm, I wonder.....

    Ok, Tami, now that you have made the changes to the file, deleted the .pnf file and rebooted, post another copy of your modem log here.

    I want to see your modem log accept the ~ as a ring character. If we don't see that, then the changes you made haven't registered. We have to do this a step at a time if there are more problems but the first problem was 'no ring'.

    If the two lines were added to the mdmhayes.inf file, you would see something like this in your modem log:

    "01-20-2005 21:15:39.562 - Recv: ~
    01-20-2005 21:15:39.562 - Interpreted response: Ring"

    If you see that, then we can move on.

    strange,

    "01-26-2005 14:30:24.015 - Opening the modem device failed with error 00000005"

    I think this error occurs because of a hardware conflict. Before you reinstalled XP you said your computer wouldn't set up the Incoming Connections. But to get the latest modem log, the computer obviously passed the point of Incoming Connections and the modem complained.

    In the post you referenced the user decided he had a problem with his computer and serial to PPP worked on another computer. Do you have that available to you?

    I am having the same problem. Checked my modem log, and I get the line that says "~" interpreted as "ring". I try to make a test call and the Tivo gets to the "Connecting" stage and craps out after about 2 or 3 minutes.
    My incomming connections shows the Tivo trying to connect and in fact says that the Tivo is connected. Then "Failed. Service unavailable."

    Please Please help. I need this to work.

    Other random info:

    20' null modem cable from 9thtee
    Win XP SP2 with firewall off/on, no difference
    Motoroloa Cable modem <---- this guy might be the culprit (?)
    Linksys wireless router <-----tried it both with and without this
    Philips Series 1 TiVo
    Tried every baud from 9.6 to 115, 9.6 seems to work best

    John (and everone else),

    Thanks for your help, even though we were have some miscommunication. My original log was with the proper file changes, and for some strange reason, it just wasn't recognizing it. I redid it and the connection several times with the same results. But this morning, I did a system restore to before I started this. Then I did everything all over again from scratch. Tried with DHCP first (had to try), it didn't work, but I did see that the Ring was recognized. So I put in the IP's and voila! it works. Downloading now ... it's probably gonna take a while since my data was gonna run out in 2 days.

    Don't know why it works now and not before, but I don't care. It's like the magic power of the reboot .... just happy it's working.

    Good luck to everyone else. If I can provide you with any good logs or anything just let me know.

    BTW, distance can't be too much of an issue because here's my connection:
    Original Tivo cable
    9pin null modem adapter
    9pin to 25 pin adapter
    25-foot 25pin straight through cable
    25pin to 9pin adapter
    9pin serial port on PC

    Sure I found a 25' 9pin F to 9pin F null modem cable online for only $10 ... but that was after I pieced all this together from Radio Shack and CompUSA. The price I pay for wanting it NOW!

    Thanks again,
    Tami

    OK, I'm trying everything. I've looked closely at the mdmhayes.inf file and it appears to be right. My modem log indicates that it is interpreting the "~" character as a ring. But I still get the lengthy wait and no connect. I'd be happy to post my modem log if someone thinks it could help.

    So please, will someone answer these questions:

    If I bang in two IP addresses into the PPP connection, should they be inside or outside the subnet? Meaning that the IP addresses on my side of the router are all of the form 198.168.1.XXX. I set my DHCP server to dish out addresses between .100 and .150. So what should I pick for the PPP connection? I see lots of folks saying use something that the router won't dish out, but it still has to be in the same subnet, right? So I can't use 198.168.0.XXX?

    Someone earlier posted that the "ppp protocol" still has to be at 115K baud or it wont start even if you set the port speed lower. I don't think I understand this comment. If I don't set the baud in my Incoming Connections setup at the same thing I put in the tivo (i.e., ,#211 or ,#296) then the two don't even try to connect.

    As an aside, the only time I can get the "User Request" string in the hyperterminal check is when I'm using 9600 baud on both ends. So that's what I keep trying to connect with. Should I use something else even though I can't get that string with it?

    Please Help!

    Hi Tami,

    Glad you got it working! And it looks like time to invest in Radio Shack. :D

    And with all that hardware between your computer and TiVo demonstrats that most serial ports are capable of handling 115kb speeds especially those that run XP.

    Thanks for the update.

    Hi ppp_wannabe,

    What is your computer's IP address from the Linksys? Try two addresses a few above your computer, such as your computer = 192.168.1.11, try this two addresses 192.168.1.18 and 192.168.1.19.

    Also, post a copy of your modem log here and perhaps we can see something additional but I think IP addresses within the range set on your router that the router wouldn't hand out normally with DHCP for the static addresses may take care of you.

    Keep us posted and good luck.

    My computer's IP address is 198.168.1.101. Guess that's the first or second handed out by the router. The DHCP is only configured to hand out 50 addresses, so I think you're suggesting that I pick a couple that are in that range of 50, but well above what the DHCP is likely to dish out, say .40-.41. I'll try that.

    Will have to post my modem log later--am at work at the moment.

    Thanks for the help!

    Right, ppp_wannabe. anywhere in the 50 range but one not likely used by DHCP.

    Hope it works for you and if it doesn't give us the log.
