Search the -users list archives for xyac and/or xosd. I remember seeing a
post from last year sometime about someone using xosd to display information
(including caller id) over anything that is currently onscreen. I believe
they were using yac to send caller id info, but they used xosd to display it
so I don't see why you couldn't call xosd from your vonage callerid script
instead of mythtvosd of whatever you're using now that only displays when
watching video. xosd should display over anything that is currently
onscreen, including menus.
