This is correct. We are adding this capability "soon". For now there are two things we are doing: First we have a "enable high-bandwidth codec" flag which should help, except there is a problem with it working with inbound calls. This bug has been fixed and is awaiting release to everyone. Second we are adding a second option to turn on fax optimizations. This will be enabled on a per phone number basis, so you can turn on "fax mode" for just your fax number. This should be out in early December.murphy wrote:I believe the hub has the ability to detect the initial fax handshake and switch to fax mode.
The Telo apparently does not have this capability so far.
Finally, I must add the appreciation of the writers for cluing us into HP's "Faxback" system. It works well, and now I don't have to be a pest to my friends to test out my system.
anyways just wanted to chime in and say im having the same problems with receiving.
its a brother. ive just tried with auto answer. i get the call it rings twice and then the fax says "recieving". maybe 5-10 seconds later it just goes back to the defualt tiem date display, no error messages or anything.
one thing thats different for me that ive seen people talk about is "fax mode". i went to system prefferences and there is nothing there about fax settings. all thats there is the connection tone, the 10 digit thing, and the high bandwidth deal.
i got this for the sole purpose of faxing, gift for my dad... i didnt really need it otherwise... should i take it back to best buy and order the older hub online?
any new news with you guys otehrwise? saw something about an "early december" update?
i maxed out the voicemail pickup time to 59 sec
and put the high bandwidth setting on
i tried this a couple times and it didnt work
then i think i turned off the QoS setting on my router, but it looked like it was already off? i duno it was checked but greyed out...
then i think i turned off the special dial tone... but i think i still hear it so im kinda confused about that...
so i guess anyone of those thing worked and it just took a while to update the telo?
ps thanks for the HP number too
Of course, if your fax number is famous, changing it won't make you happy. Just some thoughts. That way the fax machine does not even have to be on unless you are sending. I think they can fax out from your PC, too.
I love maxemail. Don't know if there are limits for huge faxers though. Good luck!
