Making my 6.2 Dial through ethernet?

I've been searching, but haven't been able to find any relevent information on making a 6.2 dtivo dial through ethernet.

Our access card has finally filled up with movies, and the modem just happens to be bad (A little run in with some lightning this summer)

I don't want to have to order through the internet, I like using the remote, and I know i can make it dial through the serial port, but It's in a very inconvienient place for that.

Thanks

looks like you are going to have to get that unit replaced, or order PPV thru the internet. There isn't a way that we know of, to make the tivo call to DTV over anything but the phone line.
The unit actually calls DTV to report PPV seperate from the call to Tivo.

How many movies does it take to fill up an access card?

When it tells you you can't do it anymore

Well that's disappointing. Does the serial port method work? If so, I guess I can research and use that...

I rarely get PPV movies and when I do I order them online. I was just curious how many the unit will let you get before it complains. 5, 10, 15??

I think the cards have a 90 dollar limit, but don't quote me on that.

The only possibility is to get an external modem and configure it for use.

The F, H and Hu cards all had 25 PPV slots so it is likely that the current cards had 25 slots.

To the OP, when you get the Tivo to call Dave you will get a big bill for all those PPV purchases.

The PPV call can only be made with the internal modem.

Ok.

Another question. I just restored Alphawolf's 6.2 image to another DTivo I have, but that Modem seems to be suffering the same fate as this one. I have fakecall.tcl and don't make PPV purchases on it, so i didn't even notice the bad modem. But now it wants to make a call to activate the DVR Service. Is there a way around the activation call? Or can THAT call be made without using the internal modem? Or can DTV activate it without calling?
