DMZ hosting enables a LAN device to use the modem WAN IP address as its own. DMZ places the LAN device outside the firewall.
Looking at the HR34 info page, it still shows 192.168.0.7 as it's IP adress. When I had my PS3 setup in DMZ mode, the system summary screen on the PS3 showed the WAN address of the modem as it's IP address.
Everything is working except caller ID.

I have the HR24/100 - Had the My CenturyLink menu item
H25/100 - Had the My Centurylink menu item
2 of H25/500 - Did not have the My Centurylink menu item
I have the Centurylink ZyXEL PK5000Z modem.
So I went into the Advanced Setup and then the UPnP section.
I disabled the UPnP NAT T-List, Item 2... I then removed the DirecTV models that were the problem in the table on the bottom. After, I rebooted the modem and the DirecTV receivers. I no longer have the My Centurylink menu option. The Caller ID feature reappeared under the "EXTRA" menu option and now works correctly.
In the DirecTV hardware, under Network Settings, there is a Network Services feature. This is where the My Centurylink was being ported into the box. I played around with blocking the ports but it still showed up.. So I just disabled the feature and removed the hardware from the table.
Hopefully this will help someone in the same situation. Neither Centurylink or DirecTV have any idea what I'm talking about. I spent hours trying to convince them I wasn't insane.. got the usual run around so finally found this site and thought I'd post my results on the matter.

Can I disable My CenturyLink™ on DIRECTV®?
Yes. Call My CenturyLink™ on DIRECTV® technical support at 1 800 247-7285 to have the features disabled on your account.
So, I call the number… It gives me 3 options….
1 for telephone/voice repair
2 for internet repair
3 for Video repair.
I select 3.
Then it says “if you are calling about the My Centurylink features on DirecTV, press 1..”
I press 1 and I get an agent somewhere in some 3rd world country.. When I explain my problem this is what I get….
“sir you have reached DSL repair… I will transfer you to DirecTV tech support….”

i have mycentury link on my directv menu and want to get rid of it. I does not work with genie. Every time i have dtv remove it, it comes back. No one especially Centurylink has any idea what to do.

I still can't get my centurylink to work. I rest as sugested by atcontroller and it still came back. Caller id works fine when it is in the extras, but not when my century link comes back on the menu list. ( i have the same modem as atcontroller) In fact when i go into the century link i need to wait for it to load and whenn i say back to tv it freezes the screen on my genie 34. what a loss of a neat feature.

Well if anyone is interested in removing mycenturylink from DTV, it finally happened. I read some where it was bundled with your home phone and it was. I finally got a hold of a tech that new that and submitted a work order to turn this option off. (it was free so no big deal he said) I did a reset after i received the notice the work order was filled and it has not shown up now for two whole days. So far so good

If you add Message Manager or had qHome, MY CL came with. You can unsubscribe from Message Manager/qHome to get rid of My CL.
I have the HR34 Genie and My CL works. I have to hit play a couple of times to get my voice mail to play the first time, other than that it works fine. I don't have a phone line whee my Genie is at so this works for me.
