TiVo over VoIP service = TiVoIP?Friday, October 20, 2006
Have you ever thought about replacing your old home telephone system with a VoIP service provider like Vonage? Don't cancel your landline just yet! As Garrett found out, having a POTS backup can come in handy during emergency situations.
Keeping that in mind, if you're still thinking about hooking up most of your phones to your VoIP provider, but you don't know if your TiVo or DirecTV will still function, don't worry, there's a solution for you. These DVRs can use your VoIP provider to "phone home", just like using the regular telephone. Then you should ask, do you really want those services eating up your bandwidth? Hey, it's your choice.
