Tivo will be discontinuing dial-up internet service.
I have not used dial-up since the Series 1.
I knew it had to happen eventually.
My mom still uses TiVo dialup. Now she will have to get internet if she wants to keep her TiVo. I am not looking forward to trying to explain this to her. She is still recovering from having to get one of those new flat televisions.
An alternative is FreedomPop hotspot, and a wireless G Tivo adapter.
I haven't used dial-up since my original S2 box. Not sure why I received this message saying I have a device still using dial-up.
What a flash back to the days of listening to a modem connect. Haven't heard that in a long time.
I remember starting a download and going to the movies or to bed wondering if the line disconnected... That was before I learned to disable call waiting...
Maybe your internet connection is so slow it fooled them???
Never had a unit other than a Roamio and I received it as well.
This message was sent out by mistake to many owners who never used dial-up, including me, back in July. TiVo_Ted saw the complaints and apologized in the original thread (in the main community forum)
Phasing out dial-up modem service
I guess someone leaned on the same button over the holiday weekend.
It's funny how it points you to the web site to discontinue service. Then the web site says it doesn't do that (yet). And "yet" has been displayed for over five years.
got the second e-mail and message on my Series 3/HD. Guess they ASSUME that a TivoHD still connects via landline when I've had mine connected via internet wirelessly since I got it (no landline since 05)
I've never had a TiVo with a phone line. Probably simpler to just send the message to every email address. No stamps to buy these days.
I saw a notification of an email from TiVo with the word discontinue in it flash across the top of my tablet, but when I went looking for it I found nothing. Did they send out a recall email?
Just a repeat of the first email.
Will a Wireless N and a FreedomPop hotspot work?
Strange. I wonder what flashed on my notifications.
it should. I used a Wirless N and a AT&T hotspot for my Roamio and TivoHD when I lived in BFE (bum f**k Egypt aka middle of nowhere) and the only option was wireless or satellite. There was DSL at one time (1.5MB) but that got shut down for issues (says Centurylink)
I'm having trouble getting my wireless N configured to the FreedomPop hotspot. I keep getting a "connection failed" message. My password is correct. What else can I check?
See new thread: Help with Wireless N adapter configuration for S3
I wrote that call for help.
Please try and keep it all in one thread instead of posting in multiple threads. You have a thread already open regarding this
No more dialup question
And then you opened a new thread that Joe linked to
Help with Wireless N adapter configuration for S3
Which I answered but asked staff to merge the 2 threads together. Its too hard to follow along when folks keep opening new threads in regards to the same one issue.
