This may have been mentioned elsewhere, but has anyone tried to identify a commonality here? For example, does everyone with the issue have VOIP (Vonage, Ooma, MagicJack, etc) or plain old telephone service (POTS)?

Well, we're two for two with POTS.  Makes me wonder if it isn't stray RF noise picked up on the phone lines.

A little birdie told me that DIRECTV is close to a resolution of this longstanding bug.

Did that little birdie also told you about this resolution applying to ALL receivers or just Genies?  Just curious...

That makes me hopeful!  But I think that little birdie, or one of a similar feather, has tweeted that before and was wrong.  Still, we're hopeful.

I had that unavailable caller ID message when the phone kept ringing,  But the right name(if available) and phone number when it starts ringing the first time,  I had the phone line connected on a HR22 at the time,  with those wireless jack adapters/extenders.

I was on Comcast for phone service.

That CID issue used to drive me crazy. Now that I'm no longer a DIRECTV subscriber, you can bet they finally fixed it! :lol:

Add me to the POTS list. Also - no DSL here... standard cable modem on Time Warner.

Do you have a DSL filter on the phone line to the receiver?

Yes, the Century Link tech installed a DSL filter at the outside box on the side of my house.  That way I didn't have to put one on every phone in the house.

I have internet and phone service through cable provider who just sold out to another cable service. Now all incoming calls do not show the name of the caller, only the phone number. If I want it to show a name, they want $6 a month for that service. Doing some research, it looks like this may be a new trend for charging more for a service. We are not happy, but what are you going to do?

But no fix on the latest national release, right?
