Cool New to me

Last week I purchased a use HDR212 Tivo from used store, The modem is fried!!
I have tried to hook up a Zoom mode to the serial port, made my own cable, tried setting the modem every way that I could think of including terminal override on, tried ,#3xx.
Before I go and buy onother modem, how can I check witch program version my Tivo has, from what I understand only 3.0 and above will work with external modem.
If i need to upgrade to system 3.0 how do I go about doing that being that my recorder is on set up mode.

You can look on the HDD, in the /etc directory (in both the 4 and 7 partitions) for a file called build-version . Read it and the last valure is the software version.

You can get a new version by the usual means, instantcake or stansimmons.

You might be able to hack n the modem or seral ppp into older versions.
