Yes and No...

The HR10 does two "daily" phone calls
1) To DirecTV Servers for PPV Billing
2) To "DirecTV/TiVo" Servers to update viewing habits, and download software upgardes. (Note some upgrades are sent via SAT, but they are authorized by that 2nd phone call)

The HR20 only does #1 above
The PPV Billing Update.

All updates are via SAT and authorized by the SAT.

Earl:

Thanks for the quick reply :)

Will the HR20-700 be compatible with VoiP? This is what I am using instead of a landline and I am wondering if the HR20-700 will be able to dial-out using VoiP.

Isn't it also updating the "What's Hot" service?

I think what we see on What's Hot... comes via SAT.
But as for how the numbers get back to DirecTV? I don't know if it goes via the phone line or not... (very probably, but I don't know for certain)
