I figured that someone would have answered your question by now. I'm probably one of the least qualified to answer it, but I'll give it a shot. It sounds like what you want to do is use a computer to call your tivo from a remote location & tell it to record a program, or otherwise access it's menu features. I think that the cheapest & most modem/like way to do this is to use TivoWeb with a Seriel cabel hooked up from your Tivo to a computer in the same room. I think that you can then access the computer via a modem from a remote location, and do what you want? I've read posts on TivoWeb, Tivo Net, and Turbo Net & they always confuse me. Anyway, if you want a better answer do a search under TivoWeb & do a lot of reading.
