Tivo Adventure - Getting on the network

To continue our Tivo saga, our Verizon fiber line to the house made it so our Tivo couldn't phone home.

Tonight I installed a Tivo specific network card, cut a hole in my case, plugged it into the network, and set my dialing prefix to be ",#401".

And poof, my Tivo now grabs its data off the network! Problem solved. Wife pleased.

The next step is to make the Tivo accessible over telnet, so I can actuall play around with the box. But that can wait till another night.

Whoo!
