Essential Info

Don’t miss your favorite TV show for an unwanted phone call. When the phone rings the TV Messenger automatically pops up the Caller ID info on the top of the TV screen without interrupting the program.


What's Included

  • TV Messenger
  • More Info

    The TV Messenger has a 14 caller log that stores name, number, date, time and number of times they called. A red LED will light when there are callers in the log. If you subscribe to phone company voicemail, the LED will blink when messages are waiting.

    The TV Messenger plugs between the VIDEO IN RCA jack of your TV and the VIDEO OUT jack of your cable box, VCR, etc. It requires Caller ID service from your phone company.

    The TV Messenger with Remote (5151R) comes with a 4-button remote that allows you to scroll and delete items in the log from the comfort of your sofa. The IR codes from this remote can be learned by most learning remotes. Additionally, this version includes call waiting Caller ID.

    A Channel 3/4 Modulator allows you to use TV Messenger with TVs that do not have RCA video in jacks.

    Tip: Now you can have a telephone jack anywhere in your home and not run any cables. Our Wireless Internet Jack System can add a telephone outlet anywhere in your home in just moments. The kit consists of a two major parts. A transmitter, which is plugged into an electricity jack near an existing phone, will convert telephone signals, including Caller ID information, into radio signals. The second component, a receiver, is plugged into electricity near the TV. It can also be used with satellite dish receivers and hard drive recorders (like TiVo™ and Replay TV™) that need to go on-line to exchange data periodically.

    I bought two items. One for myself and one for a friend's birthday present. It does not work with my TV because I use the digital output signal from my satellite receiver. I'm going to call the manufacturer to see if they can suggest a solution, but I haven't yet. I have nothing but good things to say about Smarthome however. You sell items that can be hard to find elsewhere and you stand behind your products. Whenever I'm working on any projects involving wholehouse A/V, X-10, telephones, and networking, I reach for your catalog. Thanks.

    Worked exactly as described. Easy to setup.

    I'm a repeat purchaser of this item--purchased one for my father for Christmas. It was such a hit in the household that my mother wanted one for the bedroom tv. Great product!
    ROGER -- nashville, TN   1/14/2004
    Gave as a Christmas gift to my father who has a difficult time reading the small Caller ID unit from the phone co. He absolutely loves the TV Messenger! Great hit.
    DAVID A. -- rogersville, TN   11/2/2003
    works great, simple to install between the satellite receiver and tv
