    I do not own a land-line phone. I use my cell phone for all my calls.

    Is there anyway to take advantage of the features of a Tivo without a phone line? Can a Tivo somehow download info over the internet? Could it be wireless?

    Thanks!

    Yes, TiVo can download information over broadband using a USB -> ethernet or USB -> wireless adaptor.

    I posted a thread on this just this afternoon. My question is whether or not I could use broadband with tivo basic, not tivo premium.

    My USB->Ethernet adapter worked fine with Tivo Basic.
