I just read that Cablevision is rolling out Caller ID on their cable boxes. This is a cool feature. Now I won't have to run into the other room just to realize I don't want to answer.

I found the story here

For those that have this feature, since they have OV. Does this also display CID Call Waiting as well? I know on my HR20 Directv receiver it will display the CID Call Waiting info, which is nice.

I just had this feature activated here on LI and it appears Call Waiting Caller ID does NOT work! But overall it's still a very cool feature.

Call Waiting w/ Caller ID working fine

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.
