POTS line indicator blinking

Post by manonthewing » Tue Feb 16, 2010 6:42 pm

My current set up is a two-line base phone, with ooma to line 1 and my POTS to line 2. I've noticed an increasing frequency of the POTS line indicator blinking, as if I or someone else if the house was making a call, when in fact it is not being used. When I pick up the line, there is silence and no dial tone.

Any ideas on what is going on here, and is this related to the ooma connection?

thanks in advance.

I am a little confused, you post is about your POT line 2 flashing on your 2line phone system, but your last sentence said this is only related to the Ooma connection. I thought the Ooma was connected to line 1.

Are you talking about the Telo line indicator by chance?

Otherwise I would not have a clue how Ooma would be interferring on your landline since they should be isolated.



EDIT ignor the end of my first sentence, I misread.

Do you have a TiVo, ReplayTV, Satellite receiver, etc. that needs to phone home on a daily basis to update it's information?
