I'm now regretting not spending a bit more for a model with a USB port for PC programming.

I'm having difficulty programming a Panasonic KX-TA308NZ to recognise Caller ID from the telco. Caller ID is definitely enabled on the line.

Here are the Caller ID programming related options which I have found:
CID Assign: CO1-3 Enabled
CID Area Code
CID Local Call
CID LD (Long distance?) Call
CID Priority
CID SMDR Format
Caller-ID Inf: Enable
CID Type: Tried both DTMF and FSK. Telecom uses DTMF no?

Any advice as to how I should go about this would be most appreciated.

Telecom NZ (and all other providers in NZ) use FSK for CallerID.

Have you tried contacting Panasonic about the device?

Thanks for clearing up the type of signaling.

I was wrong in assuming that the KX-TA308 came with the ability to detect caller ID. An expansion card is required in order for it to do so.

I've since sold it (making a ~$50 loss...), and spent a bit more to get a KX-TEA308. Again, this requires an expansion card too.

The system is playing nice with the 2 lines provided by the Cisco ATA - caller ID is being passed thru fine & everything is working transparently.

Is there any reason why you went with an analogue PBX in the first place? You would have been far better just sticking with a VoIP solution, even an ATCOM PBX would have offered you more functionality for similar sort of price.

The primary reason was that I needed to guarantee a high level of uptime. Panasonic pabxs have a great reputation when it comes to reliability.

The system is being used in a residential/home office environment, and with me leaving home I can't afford to deploy a system with low reliability.

I own & have read 'Asterisk: The Future of Telephony'. I've used Piaf, trixbox and asterisk running on debian. Using a tdm400p, cisco atas and two 7912s, I couldn't guarantee system uptime. Sure, the features were excellent. I just wasn't skilled enough to iron out a perfected install.

That's why I suggested an ATCOM box. They are probably more solid than a Panasonic PBX!

How much would you pay for one with ~ CO lines?

I'm on the mobile version of the forum - can't edit posts. Should say 3 CO lines in the above post.

Probably around $800 with 3 FXO ports and no FXS ports.

Why do you need FXO ports if you're connecting to a VoIP provider?
