Call Screening

Post by natehieter » Fri Apr 15, 2011 2:29 pm

Shortly after installation we had various voice quality/silence/drop problems. While debugging all that mess we were strongly encouraged to make sure that nothing was between our cable modem and our Ooma base station.

While Caller-ID is helpful, the fact remains that it is handy to hear the phone messages as they come in. However, since our cable modem must reside in the basement (along with a variety of other networking gadgets) it is near impossible to hear.

Is there any way to get the Ooma Handset to broadcast the audio as it is being recorded live?
