Re: Caller ID on TV

the caller id to TV feature currently only works on DVR's and HD's.  It will not work on a regular cable box.

Re: Caller ID on TV

How do you get it to work though?  I have an HD box and I set it up to be on the bottom of the screen, but when a call comes in, I never see anything.

 

Thanks!

I was told that they no longer include this automatically. You have to call up and have it activated. There is no extra cost. Keep in mind that it also takes up to a day for it to start working after it's activated.
