    Just had my whole house DVR upgrade and the installer would not hook up my telephone line to the DVRs saying that he had been advised that Caller ID interfered with MRV. Has anyone else heard that?

    FYI, I hooked it up after he left with no problems.

    Nope .. that is an incorrect statement .. I've been using MRV & Caller ID for months now and this is actually the first time I've heard anyone actually make that claim. Connecting your phone line to your receiver works just fine.

    Add my vote to agree with Doug....no such issues now in months of testing and using MRV (along with Caller ID).

    Like above posters have said, no issues what so ever with MRV and Caller ID on any of my STB's.

    I've got a related question:

    I currently have my phone line hooked into only 1 receiver, so only that TV shows the caller ID. If MRV is enabled, will the caller ID display on the other receivers (which do not have the phone line hooked up)?

    Thanks!

    No, that would be nice if they could figure out how to do that though.
