    There is no function that it can do with a phone line that won't work over Ethernet, other than caller ID obviously.

    I don't have a land line phone.
    My DVR is hard wired to my router.
    When trying to view a Video-On-Demand I get a message saying that I have to send a text message in order to view the show.
    Why can VuDu do it?

    You must have spontaneous PPV or something like that disabled on your account (whatever they call being able to order at any time). Call DirecTV and explain it to them and they should be able to turn it on, set a dollar limit for it, etc.

    Impulse PPV must be ENABLED in order to order via remote control.

    I know, that's what I meant. His account currently must have impulse PPV disabled. He needs to call DirecTV and have it enabled, and while doing that he should be able to set up limits for how much can be spent, how often, etc. if he wants. I guess my wording was a little unclear.
