Yes.

Depending on the model , how.

Pretty well all can do serial PPP, except the Series 3 and TiVoHD, which have no serial port. You do that through a computer.

The Series 2 and Series 3 Standalones can network with USB network adapters, the DT and HD models with built in ethernet.

Series 1s can have a Turbonet or Cachecard added.

DirecTV TiVos can be hacked to eliminate the phone call and network. The R10 needs a hardware hack first. PPV Calls can only be made by the built in modem.

I guess this week's Jeopardy is reruns.. (or else I'm having serious deja vu)

there was an answer along the lines of "this 4 letter company's dvr requires a phone line".. and I remember being annoyed the first time it came on that it didn't require a phone line then or now.
(Though for my series 1s, I *do* need a phone line unless I want to pay a lot extra for the third party ethernet hacks.)
