Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  I have got  this set up and working with XBMC and also my laptop. I am awaiting my API key from whitepages.com now to complete my setup.   ;D ;D ;D

 :) Another happy user. I am using this to show alerts on my HTPC (which runs mediaportal). The hardest part was finding software to edit Microsoft Access .mdb file. Ended up using MDB View Plus.

The plugin that I used for mediaportal also has thumbnail capability, as it can match incoming names with thumbnails named exactly the same.

Super!!

Thanks for this app. I was using similar functionality with my previous VOIP provider so was very happy to find this utility already done.

Question, is it possible to filter out the "null, null" messages so they don't show up on the Listeners?

Funny you bring that up.  I just bought an Obi200 a few weeks ago, gave the Obi100 to my parents, and noticed that same behavior on that unit, which wasn't a problem on the Obi100.  I added a line to filter that out.  I had to migrate the project to GitHub because Google Code Project is shutting down.  I have updated the main thread with new links to the project.  New version is 1.0.0.51.

Take care...

Thanks for this, it is working very well.

How hard would it be for obi2yac to interface to Windows Media Center?

The problem is, when WMC is in full screen mode, it does not receive any growl notifications.

I noticed this other app by rioutus labs.. but it seems to be no longer supported since the installer is expired.

However, their MCE Integrator component can still be installed.

How hard might it be for obi2yac to send messages to this MCE Integrator component?  The author said they were willing to put the source up, but the thread is long dead.

since obi2yac talks to growl so well, really all that is needed for caller id display inside Windows Media Center is a working Growl to WMC add on.

i found this one, but it appears to be abandoned for 64bit windows, can anyone recompile this?

In case anyone is still using this application, it has been updated to version v1.0.0.58 which added PushBullet support. The code base was moved to Github.  The release can be found here:
