View Full Version : 3M'd DTV with Tivo question

04-26-2002, 04:37 PM
I've currently got a 3M'd HU in my DTV receiver (subbed) and I'm considering upgrading to a DirecTivo receiver. While I don't mind paying $10 a month for Tivo, as I understand it, I'd have to have it plugged into the phone jack at least occasionally in order to maintain the subscription. With a 3M'd card, this just isn't going to happen.

I'd like to keep my DTV subbed so that a) I can have a clean bin, and b) I can have something to fall back to if/when the 3M gets ECM'd.

What can I do in regards to Tivo in this setup? Should I not order the Tivo at all and just use Xtreme 2.5? Should I wait for the 3.0 Tivo updates to come out and see how things pan out? Should I sub the Tivo as well and just not plug it into the phonejack? (And will my subscription still "work" like this?)

Thanks in advance for any help.

use extreme 2.5 all your guide info will be d/l via ird and you wont have to plug in the phone line.
