Caller ID on video display?
I recently got OpticTV from Telus. It comes packaged with Internet and telephony. However I wanted to keep my Vonage internet phone so I opted out of their telephony service.
Because I opted to use Vonage for my telephony I no longer have caller ID on my TV.
My TV (A Sony 46XBR) doesn't have an RJ11 Input for caller ID.
The OpticTV PVR / Set top box doesn't have an RJ11 input either.
(Well I think it has an ISDN input, but this will not give me caller ID if I plugged the vonage into it.)
So does anyone know of a product that has say an HDMI In an RJ11 in and an HDMI out, such that the input video signal will have the text of the Caller ID blended with the video?
It just seems to me that unless your TV has an RJ11 input your forever in a situation that the call number display may or may not be displayed. My TV only has 3 HDMI inputs, all of which are in use, so my older DVD player is connected by component video. So even if i did find the above mentioned product it wouldn't work when the TV wasn't using HDMI (1)

I don't believe there would be any way to do this.
With Telus Optik TV, the way it gets the Caller ID information would be through the phone line that is configured for your DSL connection (hence why you won't need another phone line).
There wouldn't be any way to "merge" a video signal either, so even if there was another box that could grab caller ID information and display it to the TV, you wouldn't be able to view both sources together.

There is for SD, it is pretty easy.
For HDMI, it is more complex. All I can think of is to hack a Logitech Revue, if possible.
