there are 3 media center services running
one of them has my dialup modem port locked
so my callerid program can't access it
had to use YAC a caller id program that can share the port
but i wanted to use my phone plus
but phone plus does not have a feature to enable modem sharing

i use high speed cable, so i wonder why it has my dialup modem
i can stop the one of the 3 services to unlock that port
would that screw up the media center?
i'm pretty sure it's for downloading tv scheduling
but that is done through my cable

any ideas?
