I've noticed several people have their technical specifications below their posts (or in their signature) and many list multiple SCOUTs. How is this achieved? I've got a HUB and one SCOUT now, if I hooked up another scout could I connect a third line? And how would the lines show up on the units? Or do these people have more than one HUB? Info? Anyone?

Using a standard single line splitter the wall port of the hub is connected to the wall ports of both scouts.
There is a maximum of two simultaneous phone calls since there are only two physical phone lines.
You can have more than two numbers but up to two can be in use at the same time.

I distribute ooma dialtone as well as the wall port signal (combined via a duplex splitter before feeding into wall jack) throughout the house so I got a total of 4 (this is max) Scout's in various locations of the house as voicemail stations.

So they are used for voicemail access / indication and as another jack to plug a phone into, but you do not get any extra lines? I was thinking they'd give me more line options. Thanks for the information!!

The phone ports on the Scout, you can use to plug in a phone to use the instant 2nd line feature if you have Premier. With Premier, you can also assign your 2nd number to the Scout so only the phone connected to that Scout rings.
