    Hi all. Been a lurker here for 2 yrs. Been with *D since 1996. Have 2 HR 24s and 3 H21s. Just got back from a 3 week road trip and noticed that all receivers now display caller ID even if they don't have a phone line connection - great step forward to avoid the robocalls. Should have said that two of the receivers are connected to the phone

    Is CenturyLink your phone provider? In their old Qwest territory they have something called MyCenturyLink or that does that.

    All that is required is an HD DVR. I had an HR20 and My CenturyLink. It works even if you have call following turned on. I like it because I can listen to my voice mail on my TV.
