My caller ID works on my H20! Remember that you first have to have caller ID enabled by your local phone company before it will work. Also don't forget to check your phone line connected to your Sat. Box for dial tone.

Just some suggestions

My Caller ID also works on my H20.

In the setup, there is a way to turn it off (but it should be on by default)... Make sure someone didn't disable the messages.

If you have turned on Caller ID from the phone company, and you have other Caller ID units in the house, unplug them all, leaving the H20 connected and see if you get the #. Sometimes there is a master-slave syncronization issue (though I have never seen it before, I read about it in a set of instructions that came with a stand-alone Caller ID unit I purchased a few months ago).

I have had the h20 for three months and the caller Id has never worked properly. Some calls go though most but do not. I have called directv and they say they know about this problem. This is not a problem that can be fixed by reseting you receiver or unpluging it. I have read on different web sites this problem occurs if you have verizon for you phone service but can not verifly this. But it is a fact while most receivers caller ID does work there are a small percentage of them that does not work. Directv does not seem to care. I have called them four times on this issue. All I can say keep calling until they fix the problem.

verizon is my phone co and just like DTV they don't care unless the check doesn't clear.

Just got my HD Diretv system 2 weeks ago and caller ID works fine (Southwestern Bell).
