I have an rca directv series 2 tivo box DVR40 and wish to get rid of my home phone line. I have usb ports on the back of my box. What do I need to do or get in order to get my tivo box to use my broadband connection to make its call. Also, if there isn't any way to make it work does anybody know a way I can connect the box to my cell phone to make the calls. :confused:

The phone call is not required. It will compain about not connecting... just delete the messages.

Don't bother, the phone line isn't needed with DirecTV TiVos. After some time, you'll get nag screens complaining about not making a call, just make sure you clear out the messages screen periodically. If you want to order PPVs, do it online.

As mentioned you do not need a Phone Line. You could also hack the unit to enable the USB Ports, therefore connecting it to your home Network. Discussions are in the Underground Forum for this.
