Try this, use your remote to get to:

Settings -> Preferences -> Notifications

Check that "Xfinity Voice" is set to ON. This setting controls the caller ID displayed on the TV.

Tried this. It did not work even with a restart of the box and modem.

To clarify: Did you replace your TV Box or your Modem? or both?

user_jbg7jz thank you for reaching out and using the Community Forums page. Just to ensure I am understanding the issue correctly. After upgrading your modem the Caller ID feature stopped working for you?
