My on-screen Caller ID stopped working a few weeks ago. I finally got around to calling tech support yesterday.
The tech said that Caller ID feature has been removed. Yet I read conflicting reports on these forums about that.
I would like to know if there is a problem with my box that I will pursue.
Or has the feature has been removed and I shouldn't waste my time.
So I have a very simple question: As of Oct 2, 1027, should Caller ID work on a Contour 2 box?
Ideally I'd like to get an official answer on this from Cox.
TV caller ID requires two way communication to show that on the TV. The minibox does not have that feature on it. It also does not have on demand as well. The minibox is just a play box. If you are looking for the features from the Contour box, you will need to get a different cable box for that. We can provide more information if you require it.

The Cox tech came to my house this morning. Great guy, very knowledgeable and professional.
I asked if can repair my Caller ID. Without raising a tool, he said that Caller ID has been removed (for now) from pretty much every Contour 2 box in the Northeast due to technical issues. Even Comcast's Xfinity boxes have this issue as well. Caller ID has been removed because it was causing a lot of problems interacting with the recent software upgrades. It will be reinstated as soon as the issue is fixed.
Simple answer. That's all I've been asking for. A real answer. I can deal with that. It was the "not knowing" aspect that frustrated me.
I wish the phone support team or the forum support team had this information and could have relayed it to its customers. It would have saved all of us a bunch of time and effort.
So in summary, the answer is to sit tight and wait for Cox to repair and reinstate Caller ID at some point. As someone mentioned earlier, the Caller ID Log (not to be confused with Caller ID) will not be reinstated.
Hope this helps!
To expound on Tom's post, Cox also disabled Caller ID on Rovi in the Mid-Atlantic (Virginia).
I'm completely on the "old system" because I still haven't upgraded my telephone modem. Everything I have now is the same as before the Cox upgrade, so they must have just disabled Caller ID on TV.
I hate to upgrade because every previous "upgrade" (cable box and DOCSIS 3.0) was either broken or worst than before.
The Contour 2 caller ID history was removed, however the basic incoming ID should be available. Please check your settings menu, under notifications and ensure Contour Voice is turned on.

Checking settings, enabling and disabling and rebooting the box is so rudimentary, I do it when I'm bored.
Nothing in my account has changed in years.
Tom's tech said you disabled it because you didn't test it and now we can't have it. That's good enough for me.
