One other option is to migrate to a wireless adapter if you have an existing home network.

9th Tee has been selling such parts (both replacement modems and network cards) for a long time and has a pretty good reputation, as far as I can tell.

Is there no discussion on this over at PVRBlog? This Matt dude or sumptin seems to write about this kinda thing sometimes...

I can vouch for both Weaknees and 9th Tee. 9th Tee were first to market, but they both are reliable. If you have a Series 2, you can probably just connect via your home network using USB for a lower cost solution.

I bought an internal network card for my series 1 TiVo from 9thTee. Installation was easy, card worked great with my existing network.

I now have a Series2 TiVo and I second the suggestion of using a (wired or wireless) USB to network adapter.

I'll bite. What's the benefit of having an ethernet card on a series 1 tivo? My understanding is that all the mpeg-2 files on there are encrypted so I just can't ftp them out. Will the tivo somehow find a directv channel server or will I also need a phone modem for channel data?
