VOIP should provide the same POTS dial tone you're used to...so you're safe.

I have a HD-DirectvTivo and Packet8 and it doesn't work for me, but some people with Vonage have gotten it to work with it. So it is a roll of the dice. I use the serial port on the back of the Tivo and use a null modem cable hooked to a computer to get my Tivo to dial out over the internet.

Not sure about Time Warner but VOIP in general is hit or miss when it comes to data connections like DirecTivo. I tried SunRocket and even with different tweaks (like lowering connections speed and such) my DTivo couldn't connect. Then I saw several posts about ATT CallVantage (voip) working with DTivo so I tried it and it connects without any issues.

Works for me.. Just on very big downloads (software upgrades) I have seen it have trouble at times staying and getting connected. On the normal call-ins I have seen no problems.

I use Sunrocket and I just set the dial # to a local # in VA where Sun Rocket is based. Sometimes it takes 2 calls but it works.

Call DTV and ask them for a prefix to slow down the connect speed. I have ATT Callvantage and the prefix they game me worked on the secondary calls. For the first call, I had to use my neighbors line. I can't tell you the code because I got rid of the HR10-250 after 3 days. It was painfully slow.
