-- HMO-CallerID Possibility? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=179470)

Because all HMO features are "request based" and "menu driven" meaning that you need to use the remote control to use any HMO app, I don't think you'll get the results you're looking for. HMO APIs are very limiting at this point so we can't do things as cool as YAC (http://www.sunflowerhead.com/software/yac) which interacts more at the Linux OS level of TiVo.

I've seen caller-id perl scripts out there that I could make "TiVo friendly" if you're using JavaHMO on a computer but unless you have a macro remote control, it would be quicker to get the phone. When the phone rings, you have to hit the TiVo button-Music-CallerId-Caller.GIF which to me is not pretty.
