New feature: Display Incoming call on TV screen

Wed May 26, 2010 3:48 pm

It would be awesome if we could display the callerid information of all incoming telephone calls (from a VoIP provider using SIP protocol) on the top of the TV screen.

It could easily done using some SIP software stack that would display callerid information on the TV screen. It would never answer or make calls.

1- Provide SIP account setup (SIP username, SIP password, SIP proxy,...)

2- Just perform SIP REGISTER and monitor SIP INVITE messages to display callerid information.

All of our current customers are using this callerid feature on their satellite receiver.

Thank you,

Kevin,

I suggested to use the SIP protocol since it would be very easy for VoIP providers to implement this notification service on the Roku box.

I'd recommend NOT using the SIP protocol. Make it something more widely useful by adding a simple notification UDP port. Send it a UDP packet with message and an expiration time. This then gives you the flexibility to do things like catch callerid (non-voip) with an old modem and send the announcement to the ROKU player(s).
