Caller ID and HDTV

I just switched from SDTV to HDTV. The picture is excellent but my on-screen Caller ID device doesn't work with my new (Magnavox) HDTV set.

Two Questions: Is HDTV is incompatible with Caller ID? If not, does anyone have a suggestion as to what I might do to get my Caller ID to work with HDTV?

What kind of TV service do you have? Cable, Satellite, etc?

If you switched from SD to HD, Comcast probably replaced the STB. Maybe the HD STB does not support Caller ID. There is nothing inherent to HDTV that would keep the Caller ID from working, it's most likely as issue with the STB.
