I called Replay tech support and asked this same question. The answer I was given by the rep was that no, it could not be used at all with just a conventional phone line. Apparently, it has a connector for a regular phone line, but that is ONLY used for troubleshooting, and the 4k unit will not get guide data that way.
I guess the real question is how long will the 4000 series try to connect to the replay servers b4 it times out. It is possible to set up a Dial-on-demand network where everytime a computer needs network connection the modem dials, but that can take upwords of 1 minute to establish a connection. If the 4000 series times out in less time then there could be a problem with anyone not on a broadband connection.
Replay guys? Any knowledge on how long till the replay 4000 series will time out?
