Instructions for setting up caller ID below.bjanton wrote:HR23-700
I have read where someone used a reverse DSL filter installed in the line to the Direct TV box, (even if you don't have DSL Internet service) to make the Caller ID work with the TV?
Direct TV instructions:
To set up your receiver to display an onscreen notices whenever you receive a
call, press MENU and select “Caller ID,” then select “Turn on Notices.” This
will toggle the option to now read “Turn off Notices.”
You can review your 25 most recent calls in the call log at any time. To see
your call log, press MENU, select “Caller ID” then select “Call Log.” Highlight
and select a name to delete that listing from your log.
On Standard-Definition Receivers, set up your receiver to display onscreen
call notices as follows: Press MENU, select “TVmail & Caller ID,” then “Turn
On Notices.” To display your Call Log, select “TVmail & Caller ID,” select “Edit
Settings”, then select “Caller ID.”
If you are using an Ooma Telo, try using Star Ninety Eight *98, (but this is for the Direct TV box to call out, not for an incoming call, and that function is probably already working with *99).
Test with your TV on, call your Ooma number with your cell phone.
