Another newbee question! How often does my tivo connect to the service?

Folks, I was under the impression that, with the home media option, the tivo would connect (via the internet) to the service more often than the once a day dial up would. Am I correct on this, and, if so, does anyone know how often it makes the connection? (I know I can force the connection if I want)..

thanks,

Bob

If you've got a broadband network connection, it'll do a quick "poll" of the online service every fifteen minutes. This doesn't include guide data, just checking to see if there are any remotely scheduled things for it. This doesn't change the frequency of guide data.

If you're on dialup, it'll only get remote schedulings when it gets guide data.
