Quicky on network daily calls

Is there a way to test the daily call when it is set to network rather than modem?
I think I have it all set up but when I do a test call it always uses the phone. I guess this is to be expected so how do I test the network?

I can ping external IP addresses from the TiVo when I use the IP numbers but it cannot resolve names. Is that normal?

No, if you have "nic_config_tivo" set to use "Network" and you choose the Test Call option is the phone menu, it will use the Network to connect!

If you have it set to "Dial-Up", then the Test Call option will use Modem to connect.

P.S.
All the terminology is geared towards modem & phone usage as this was the only way it was initially thought to be used, but once your tivo is configured to use your LAN, these options will initiate the appropriate connections as desired.

Ah, well, I have a problem then. As you can see below I have set up the network call from within nic_config_tivo .....


Current/New Configuration:
mac address = 00:0B:AD:FD:36:55
ip address = 192.168.2.7
ip subnet mask = 255.255.255.0
ip gateway = 192.168.2.1
debug level = off
daily call = network
cache statistics = 0 seconds


....... but when I force a daily call or a test call my tivo picks up the phone.

Try powering TiVo off and then on.

Otherwise you may need to do some editing on TiVo, can't remember the exact thread at the moment.

Powering off and on didn't work. I knew this wouldn't be as simple as changing one word in a config.
What else might it be?

I have it sorted. Another search through the forum found the answer.
Make all hacks run in the background by adding an & at the end of the line in rc.sysinit.author

Thanks.
