Cable company touts this as a reason to use their service. Can Ooma be configured to do so as well?

I have Direct TV and if I plug the Direct TV box into the ooma hub phone port (using a splitter so I can also connect a phone) caller ID appears on the tv screen when a call comes in.
Cable should work the same.

WayneDsr is correct. Works fine with DirecTV Caller ID by using a splitter.

The problem with the cable company is that no cable set-top boxes have phone jacks on them that I'm aware of. The caller ID on TV that the cable company advertises is only for the cable company's phone service, and I'm guessing the caller ID info is sent over the coax to the set-top box. There's no way that I know of to integrate any cable company's set-top box with ooma or any other phone service other than the cable company's own phone service.
