madcircle: hi guys, does anyone know if you can have 2 callerid devices on one line or can one device catch the information before the other?

Multiple is fine. The devices read the data, they dont remove it.

The caller id information is sent from the exchange between the first and second rings. It's 'read-only' so anything watching the line - caller id boxes, caller id phones, modems etc can read it at the same time. I have 3 caller id phones and a modem which all see the data. The limit will be whatever load these devices place on the line, which is likely to be minimal. There is a concept of 'REN' (ringing equivalence number(?)) which attempts to quantify this, and is more concerned with the power supplied by the exchange for ringing the bells, if there are any phones around that still have them!

Hey all... I too spent ages trying to find such a modem. And after months of searching I found one that works GREAT... and only $15 new. The guys at morning computer will see you right. They were so cheap I bought 2, 1 for a spare.

Just install, uses a standard 56k soft modem driver supplied and CID works 100%.

Oh, also forgot to say also it works with the native CID and messaging function in Windows XP MCE 2005. And the other TAPI apps for MCE.

The driver reports Smart Link 56k Voice Modem, doing a modem query in modem properties is reports;

Smart Link SL1900 PCI
Ver 3.80.01MC15

I will have to see if I still have the box around somewhere, it was a no name brand box from memory. I've just called them and will have to call them back in 10mins so if they say yes they have them I'll post the model they quote.
