I'm guessing that you have Dish Network, because they give you a break if you connect a phone line to your receiver. It is only used for some updates (not much anymore though) and for the most part for pay-per-view purchases. The only reason they want you to connect the phone line is so you will possibly spend more money with them buying the PPV's. If you do want to save the money per month you have to have an actual phone jack near the receiver to plug directly into. If you have that where your receiver is just get a two way split for your jack and hook the receiver in there. You won't be able to just hook your cordless phone into the receiver, their won't be any dial tone to the receiver.
