Hi,

I'm not sure if this currently exists so I thought I'd try here first.

I've got an SPA3000 box which allows me to use my normal phone to use the Internet for calls (www.voip.co.uk). It works really well and means I don't have to have my computer on as it plugs straight in to my router.

I've also found a system tray monitor (http://www.clacy.com/sipura/) that will allow a pop-up box when a call comes in showing who is calling.

What I want to do is to be able to integrate this with XBMC so that a pop-up box appears on XBMC when someone calls.

I contacted the guy who built the monitor but said there were no plans to integrate broadcasting this pop up box to another IP address (or specifically XBMC).

Does anyone know of something else that is out there?

Thanks for the post.

Unfortunately, I'm using voip.co.uk (like Sipgate) which is a SIP client which is different to Skype.

I haven't yet found anything for Sip.

I'm still pretty new to the python scene, but I do have a thought on this. If you have access to running asterisk (either on linux or cygwin, etc) you can have your asterisk box register with your SIP provider, and your sip phone to the asterisk box. When someone calls you, asterisk grabs their CID (amongst many other things) and sends the call to you. It would be pretty simple to tell asterisk to spit the callerid to stdout or pass it to a program/script...

Can you recommend a script that would pass a message to the tv (the way I imagine the other callerid scripts do) but can read input from a file? Perhaps on an smb share?

If you own an Xbox and have XBMC on it, there is a very Python script for poping up while watching a movie. CallerID for XBMC
