Caller ID issues
Posted 03 August 2007 - 08:58 PM
What I notice is that when you hit menu, the option of Caller ID & Messages is sometimes there and sometimes not. I will notice that Notices will be change to off. I never changed my settings. If I change back to Notices On it does take. It will change the option but doesn't make it work.
I have tried RBR but it didn't help. Last night all of sudden it started working again. It seems like it may be happening to me at the same time as it did last night.
I haven't read much about whether or not anyone else is still having this issue. It seems odd that all of sudden I am having problems after never ever having the problem before.
I think I am going to upgrade to the lastest CE tonight, maybe it will help.

If that didn't work for you, I don't know. I guess hope the next 1 corrects the problem. The question you have to ask yourself is if it's worth trading in for a new unit just for a "sometimes broken" CID.

But on you other question, the way it's supposed to work is like this: if you have the setting set to ON, it should display a caller's name and # when they call whether you're watching live TV or a recording...and then it disappears after maybe 10 seconds.
Are you saying, though, that it shows the call in your history, but never showed up on the screen? That's again quite odd if it's set to ON.

how exactly is the caller ID supposed to work? When I go into the menu, I can see the Caller ID messages, but no message pops up on the TV when someone calls - should it?
Most telcos send the CallerID between the 1st and 2nd rings. It you pick up before the 2nd ring you will not get a Caller ID message.
You also have the Caller ID Notification turned on to see the pop-ups

I am on 184 (lastest CE) I responded to the latest CID poll.
And I repeat, I never had this problem before exept the last couple of days
Update: I just unplugged and replugged the phone line from the back of the machine and it now works. I did try to unplugged from the wall but that did not work. I never tested the phone line the next time that CID doesn't work I will test the phone line
