A dumb power surge killed one of our phones and the modem on the 501 I do order the occasional PPV, can I just order them online? I wasn't sure if the receiver still tried to dial in to reconcile your purchases even if you order it online, or what. I actually have the insurance and could get my 501 swapped out I'm sure, but it's such a pain in the butt to lose all my shows or spend all the time at once to watch them. Is the phone line needed for anything else? If it doesn't matter, I'll just leave it and order my PPV's online. Thanks!
