Following previous threads and advice, I was able to successfully conect the Direct TV caller id to the TV located in the same room as the Ooma.

However, I can't figure out how to get the Direct TV caller id to show up on TVs located in other rooms within the house. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

If you have telephone walljacks near these receivers, you can distribute your Ooma dialtone throughout your house. Then you can get callerid on these receivers.

First, make sure house wiring is disconnected from the phone company by unplugging the plug in the NIB.

If you have the swing door type NIB, you'd need to get your wires off the screws. Would need to connect the wires belonging to the same screw together using butt splice connector if more than 1 set of wires.

Then feed Ooma's "phone" port to a walljack near your Ooma device.
