awesome awesome awesome feature.....a little window pops up in the top left corner of the screen that says the name and number of the person calling....very nice surprise, I had no idea cable was rolling this out.
I'm on Long Island too and just tested it.
Call Waiting w/ Caller ID is working fine for me.
Make sure you have Call Waiting w/ Caller ID enabled via the Optimum Voice website. Optimum - Optimum Voice
It is a different optimum from regular caller id.
As of yesterday I noticed that caller id is working in Norwalk. Great feature for us couch potatoes!
P.S. I wonder how this works. I have Cable Optimum Voice so I assume the coax cable connection carries the info. I do not have any phone lines plugged into the SA 8200. For people getting caller id who don't have Optimum Voice, do you have a phone line connected to the receiver? Just intellectual curiosity on my part - it works and that's great.
