Not so long ago, we discussed rumors about how some people were having trouble using their Vonage voice-over-Internet lines to make nightly calls on their TiVos. Now someone has solved the problem with DirecTV TiVo's.

Generally, there are issues with Vonage and modems because modems operate in a different way than voice conversations. But someone over at has outlined how to make these calls. I assume this would work with standalone TiVo units, as well, but I'm not sure.
