Is it possible to uprgrade my HR10-250 from 3.1.5 to 3.1.5f (which is in the MFS now) without a phone line? My VOIP service does not seem to work with my Tivo no matter what I try, and I would like to keep my hacks as well. Any help appriciated.

I was having all sorts of trouble trying to get VOIP to work with ATT Callvantage. So I just bought a Tivo modem cable off of ebay and then when to radio shack and bought a null modem adaptor. Total cost was about $20 bucks. But all I had to do was plug the cable into the back of my Tivo and the other end into my PC and follow the setup instructions located here:

Now my Tivo connects over the internet without having to install a network card or anything. It just shares the internet connection of the PC that the cable is attached to and dials out whenever it wants.

If you really want to try and get VOIP to work. Try this link: (Link removed - author is restricted on posting URL's until he has posted at least 5 postings)

They do a pretty good job of explaining some things as well.

The HR10-250 doesn't really do anything over an Internet link though. Guide data comes from the satellite, as will a software upgrade. Not sure whether you can successfully "authorize" a software upgrade over the Internet...and it doesn't address the call to DirecTV to report PPVs and the like.

The call for the upgrade is a PPP internet call over modem, so can be ported over serial PPP. The PPV callback is a direct call to DirecTV's modem pool, and is hard coded to be made over the internal modem.
