Did this work for the initial first time out of the box setup for TiVo? When
I got my latest TiVo I tried all of this and more and still ended up taking
the TiVo to the office to complete the initial 2 calls (phone # list, huge
software download). After that it worked fine over the phone until I plugged
it into the home network and bid farewell to the phone connection.
