In the examples shown in, the phone jacks are shown daisy-chained (wired in series). I have all my phone jacks wired in parallel (i.e. home run) up to a communications closet where the main landline comes in. Can the Ooma support that kind of home distribution as well? (I'd just disconnect the landline on the left side of punch down block and wire in the Ooma instead).

Just disconnect the source (telephone company feed), then feed Ooma dialtone to one of the walljacks. Nothing more needs to be done unless you have an alarm that you want to feed the dialtone to first.

I agree the pictures are a bit misleading (phone jacks appear to be "in series"). Most proper phone installations in a home are indeed all home-run- so yes, this works exactly as you would hope.
