    I have noticed this problem too. Doesn't come up til after the 3rd ring. By then I've checked the phone to see who's calling and answered the phone. Way too late!

    Very slow for me too... sometimes it doesn't come up before the answering machine picks up.... very annoying. I like this feature ... on paper at least.

    usually it comes up between the 2nd and 3rd ring, there are times it takes 4 rings. My 510 comes up almost simultaneously with the first ring for some reason.

    Kids were getting phone calls the other night. I noticed they were picking up before the second ring. The 942 grabbed the caller id info, but it took the equivalent of two to three rings to display it. Maybe the CID code is low priority in the 942.

    Ya, the problem isn't that the receiver isn't getting the data, it's getting the cycles to actually display it. Maybe it's a polling interval change or something? No matter how fast I answer the phone the information shows up eventually on my 942, even if i grab the phone on the first ring.

    Well I think it's fair to say, whatever the cause, it is too slow and it did not used to be this slow. Plus the other receivers seem to pop up much faster. Hopefully this issue will get some visibility in their bug list, and they'll get it taken care of. Hate to be too picky since the last software upgrade really fixed some other things and I now get all my digital locals on the programming guide. But the caller ID feature is on the cool factor list and it would be nice to have it useful again!

    after 3 rings for me. Ansering machine picks up after 4, so I have to be real quick!

    522 displays CID by second ring.

    All my other receivers including my ExpressVu 9200 (same hardware as 942) display the CID after the First ring like they should. the 942 like others in this thread is after the third ring.
