One (admittedly risky) way of testing is to reboot your Tivo.

When it starts up, it runs the modemtest program to check everything is OK. However, if the modem is fried then this program hangs and your Tivo will just stop there :eek: . If you Tivo loads normally, changes are your modem is probably OK. :)

The only way to get Tivo back to a working state again if the modem is dead is to take the hard drive out and rename the modemtest file, as suggested by Blindlemon here
