If your Tivo cannot support this, it MAY still work but depends in part on your line quality and it's not guaranteed. There are actually two issues involved in what you mention. 1) connecting your tivo to your existing wall jacks 2) tivo communicating over the telo. For #1, you can search the forums on how to do this. Generally I don't believe it's a big deal and should work. For #2, tivo over the phone line assumes an analog phone. The same issues exist for the tivo that occur with faxes and security systems. Some people have success and some don't. Search the forums for connecting to tivos, security systems, and faxes. You can find some tips to better your odds but it can never be guaranteed. That's why I suggest the ethernet route if possible.
I think you'll find your setup a lot easier if you just ignore the wall jack. As I said earlier, it may work but only after much tinkering and a bit of luck & likely a bit of frustration along the way.underpar wrote:I haven't purchased a tivo yet. Probably going with the regular hd dvr. Should I just use the tivo wireless connector and bypass connecting to a wall jack?
I'm running a TivoHD connected to a wireless bridge. The benefit of using a bridge over a Tivo wireless adapter is that the bridge would have multiple ports so if you have a BluRay, gaming console, or something else nearby that would want an Ethernet port in the future, you don't need to add anything else, just the 1 bridge. With a wireless adapter, you need 1 for each device. Generally a bridge would be a bit more expensive than a single wireless adapter but not much and generally cheaper than 2 when needed. Either way though, I would definitely go the wireless route and forget about running it through the Telo if you have the option.
