What's a Techie to do?
Hint: My HD-TiVo mysteriously went back to phoning home every night right about the same time that FOX cranked up their new fall season.
Previously, it was only phoning home every 10-12 days (or so.)
I can't think of any reason for the change, other than to gather viewer/usage data on a more timely basis.
So, if you disco'ed your phone line, you could be shooting yourself in the foot.
Of course, the problem with this is that due to my FOX station being on VHF-lo (Ch4), my HD-TiVo is significantly "challenged" wrt recording FOX programming ... therefore I usually watch live (which ain't gettin' counted in the ratings.) .... Catch-22.
