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.
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?
