    Greetings, I am wondering what problems I would encounter getting rid of my (standard) home phone service and getting Voice over IP (ex. Vonage) when it comes to my Directv service. I have a HDTivo (HR-250) and NFL Sunday ticket and also order occasional pay per view movies.
    Is it possible to switch phone services and not have any problems? What are the potential pitfalls?

    Thanks in advance

    Try a search here and in the other forums. This topic has come up many times. people have mixed results. Some have made it work and some have not. But it is all out there.

    I have Vonage and my HR10-250 has no problems dialing out. Just make sure when you're forcing the dvr to dial out using Vonage for the first time that no one is using the internet (if you have the Vonage wireless router) and that you try multiple times (it took me around 4 or 5 tries before it made a connection).
