To be clear, I was referrencing page 38 where it states under "Other Devices"...It's not recommended for satellite internet systems. ie. for people that get their internet service via satellite. The path delay for those systems is too large. As long as you have cable, DSL, or FIOS internet service you are fine.
You've misunderstood the post . Rob isn't getting his internet service over satellite. He has DishTV - a satellite TV service, which periodically needs to dial home, and wants to know whether the ooma scout can be used to make those calls. As WayneDsr pointed out, the answer is yes. Works over the hub, and over the scout - make sure the telephone wiring in your house is in good shape.
I did not misunderstand the post. He cited the paragraph in the manual that says that ooma does not work with satellite internet as if he believed that it applied to satellite TV, which it does not.
"Devices such as digital video recorders, satellite receivers, and security systems require a landline to function properly. These devices should not be connected through an ooma device."
Because my satellite receiver needs to "phone home" occasionally, I was wondering if it could work using the Ooma phone line. I did not intend to ask about using Ooma with satellite broadband service.
I hope this clears this up.
I purchased a phone extension wire, and I will test. If it does work, I will run the phone wire under the floor to the other room since some feel quality would be better than using the (so far unused) Scout. I should know something in a few days. I will post the results of my testing for others to review.
Thanks everyone for all your input on this question.
