Thanks all for the info. I'm curious tho - we have two new hd direct tv pvr and neither of them is plugged in to a phone line. My old ones were but not these .... do they download differently with the new units???

I don't use this setup, but have heard in the forums that it works.


Will the phone jacks still work if we cancel the AT&T phone?

Wayne, this is helpful information, thank you. I'm contemplating if I should go outside now with my headlamp to give this a try...

Including our DirecTV TiVo, we have 5 total source points for call generation/reception. All 5 of these have lines running to the phone company's junction box on the exterior of the house. We still have a landline, but will cancel it and go dryloop DSL if the Ooma continues to shine. It has been about a week, and so far, it has been fantastic.

With the wiring config I explained, would the splitter recommendation you provided work (activate Ooma on all house jacks on the network)?

I appreciate the help.
