Can't you have asterisk transcode out-of-band DTMF to in-band on the Hub device? It would then become in-line audio, and that is all the analog devices plugged into the line port understand anyway.

Does this mean that I can not use my current answering machine behing OOMA (and disable all OOMA supplied voice mail functions)? Currently I have a 2 line system, and it looked promising to use 1 hub + 1 scout to create the two internal lines, and still use the integrated answering machine I have. That depends on using remote DTMF tones to control it, however.

How is it that DTMF is blocked, but audio (including, I assume, singing) is not?

I think the Telo does support DTMF , which is why they probably feel justified taking away voicemail ( you can hook up your own machine)

The Hub does not support DTMF due to a contractual provision concerning use of proprietary components

They detect an incoming DTMF tone and turn off the audio path for the duration of the tone.
This is apparently a permanent restriction on the hub / scout product.

It has been stated that the restriction will be removed by a future software update to the Telo.

Ditto.

At least throw out an ETA. Say 6 mo, so that way we can interpret it as 18 mo. Or tell us 2 yrs, then we can interpret that as never.
