Some people have been having problems with the daily call not working recently.
This is particularly a problem on tiscali & talktalk phone lines.
You can change the phone number the TiVo dials, or change the way it connects.
On your TiVo, change your dial prefix code to
Press pause to get a comma and enter (on bottom right of remote) to get a # symbol
Other numbers to try are #034, #019, #096, #014 replacing the #056 above.
It's in the menu Messages and Setup / Recorder & Phone Setup / Phone Connection / Change Dialling Options / Set Dial Prefix
This changes the way the tivo modem connects, and many people have found this solves the problem.
It's also important that the TiVo's phone conection goes through an ADSL broadband filter (pictured left)
These are provided with your broadband router. Not necessary for broadband from Virgin Media Cable.
Tivo modems are also prone to failing completely after a few years (particularly after thunderstorms /mains surges).
We can repair this, or you can bypass the problem by buying a
network card for your tivo, then daily calls and updates will arrive across the internet.
