Just connect it, reboot, and it works. But, you need a working DHCP
server on you network. Also, tivo's server do not seems to be up all
the time, so I have had problems with getting my guide data. So I have
switch it back to the phone, other than just getting the guide data, it
does nothing else yet.
Tivo has just released there 3.2 software. So, I hope it will have some
new stuff like the mp3 misic and other things. We will see.

The only problem with tivo is it cost me $12.95 a month. And if I want
a second tivo its another $12.95 a month. And all they are giving me is
If the 2rd, 3rd,... tivo's only cost me $2 each more a month, I would
have one in each room and I might not be building a MythTV box.
