Alot of people have reported thier modems either beign fried, stoppign working, or not responding at all.
Others have ideas for using this machine to its fullest including the modem...
Lets get some Modem Talk going here. Anyone have info or tried any of this?
1. These modems in the machines are fairly decent, but the connections speeds seem slow for most. Anyone find a way to kick up the speed settings or such to allow the Tivo to connect 28.8 33.6 or
even 56k ?? (What is the firmware capable of?)
2. Do these modems have any built in unused capabilities such as Ring Detect or Caller ID we dotn know about? Has anyone gotten the machine to show in a shell when the phoen rings or what number is calling? When we get the Graphic display capability imagine showing the Caller ID info at the top of the screen in one of those boxes like a program name/info data box???
3. Has anyone managed to fix their bad modem by placing an external on the serial port and addign linux supoport to the tivo or by locating something they did wrong to damage the modem in software or hardware ?? Maybe bad traces on the board?
4. Anyone find a soruce of info on the modem, maybe firmware upgrades or etc..?
Soem of this is stuff im checking into and hope to post more about
