    If I put a s2 dtivo where there is no phone service nor network, will it still function (get guide data, etc)? It is hacked with zipper. Sorry for the basic question, but I needed a quick answer and you guys are awesome.

    DirecTiVos get their guide data via satellite. But, if it doesn't make its daily call to check in, you start getting nag screens. I'm not sure if that's the only issue...

    Don't order any pay per view from the remote on that unit, it uses the phone line to upload the billing data.
