    Hi,
    I live in Canada and just got a series 2 toshiba rs-tx20. I tried to set up through a land line, and although the line was connected, everytime the system tried to dial, I got a 'failed connection' error message. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    I use the "DirecTiVo" flavour of TiVo so I can't directly help. Have you tried searching the forums? There are a number of very knowledgeable Canadians who post here and have the TiVo service. Good luck!

    I am guessing because that 800 number that your TiVo tried to dial, is not available in Canada. Can you bring it to USA and upload the server package then bring it back home and then use Highspeed Ethernet for it ?

    I *may* be wrong..

    Thanks for the help Clarkey, jtlytle and JimSpence. Looks like I'll have to buy a wired adapter, dial in through my cable internet, and cross my fingers that it works for the initial guided setup. Pray for me (kidding) and please let me know if you come across any 11th hour, save-my-life, nick-of-time (yeah I know, I'm laying it on thick), miraculous tips or tricks.
