    Sorry if this is posted elsewhere or has been discussed before, but I am looking at ordering a HR20 and want to know if I absolutely have to have a landline phone connection for it to operate correctly or for the initial set-up. We currently only have our mobile phones. I have read in other forums about the ability of ordering PPV and Caller ID as the only functions you will lose. It doesn't bother me about the PPV because I order on-line. Thanks

    Nope. No phone line is needed. You just won't be able to order PPV movies, or have Caller ID.

    The installer wouldn't install my HR20 without a phone line. Directv would not let him finish the install. He had to come back a week later when I had a phone line. I understand it doesn't need it, I never had one with my Dtivo and 'm not saying they wont do it for you, but they didn't do it for me. Just letting you know.
