Hi all,
Wishing one & all A Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I'm one lucky happy tivo user for the past 10 months. Until.... 2 days ago when my ISP played me out and cut off my dsl services earlier than the scheduled termination date.

I have been getting my weekly tvguide downloaded via my broadband. With the extermination (at least for the next fortnight before hoping back on the superhighway bandwagon), I can only have internet access via pc dialup (running WinXP).

Just thinking if anyone might have a quick-fix/bright spark for a temporary workaround to download tvguide for the time being, please let me know. Your kind advise would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance & wishing a good and safe holiday season for all! :)

Do you have dialup internet as a backup?

If so, you could have the tivo connect using it's built in modem to your ISP via dialup.

Information on doing this is located here:


Hopefully if you do have dialup access as a backup, it's with an ISP that supports the authentication that TiVo uses.
