Since I'm going to be getting the unit to augment my 3 HR10-250s, I had a question about the caller ID. Currently I'm using modem jacks for two of my HR10s. I believe I read a long, long time ago someone mentioning caller ID only worked when the receiver was directly plugged into a phone jack. Does it still matter? As much as I though I was a TiVo loyalist, I'm actually pretty stoked about getting this new beast. FTM to free up a cable for OTA (If I run 3rd cables I'll be divorced!) and dual buffers would make this the primary box in my house.

Here's to hoping!
Were you hoping the Caller ID info would come over the satellite? :D

Or were you wanting to use some kind of wireless phone jack--is that what you mean by "modem phone jack?" If that's the case, caller ID info usually doesn't transmit across the wireless phone jacks. I think I recently read about one that does, but it's expensive.
