Works for me (I posted the script originally). I do have one question. 
Is there any way to get CallerID to show up while in the main menu / not 
watching TV? Is this something that will work in the new UI?

The newer Vonage uses a different port. You should be able to edit the 
port number the script is listening on to get it to work. As far as the 
different firewall, I don't see why that would matter as long as you 
allow that port through, or modify the script to listen on the incoming 
ethernet card. It just uses the linux pcap library (same that TCPDUMP uses).
