My problem is when the hub and scout are plugged connected in the same room both go blue but the scout in the second room goes red. If I unplug the scout from the hub then the scout in the second room goes blue.
Is there any way to have both scouts working as well as have the second phone number?
I've attached a simple image to illustrate the setup.
Thank you for any help.

So I ended up taking the wire that goes to the jack in the room with my hub, cut it and connected it to a phone jack, placed a multiline splitter on the new jack, connected the original cable to the splitter, ran a new cable from the room with the scout/hub to the splitter and plugged it in. In the room, I connected a new jack to the new cable, plugged the scout into the new jack, plugged the hub into the old jack. Now all lights are blue.
For some reason the scout and hub did not like being on a splitter going to the same jack. Seems to me the basically it's still the same wiring but works this way and not with a both devices on a splitter going to the same wall jack.
Is it an L1 and L2 splitter, or an unlabelled splitter (aka both L1)?grecni wrote:For some reason the scout and hub did not like being on a splitter going to the same jack.

If you want to figure it out, could you try connecting the scout and hub right next to each other without going through your home's wiring and try connecting them directly with the splitter in the middle? I wonder if somehow you got some sort of loop going similar to a ground loop when you included your home wiring.
Turned out to be my landline interfering with the hub/scouts. I disconnected my landline at the telco box and all scouts went blue.
It seemed like the hub couldn't "hear" the remote scout because of the interference, unless both of them were remote, or both of them were at the hub.
