No magic, you've got to get dial tone to the DVR from the hub, preferably without using a scout for this purpose. Does the wall connector that delivers your dry loop DSL service to your modem have a single or duel jack? If single, is there a second, unused pair inside that jack?bc3tech wrote:why would i expect it to? my standard phone service has been completely disconnected from my home, i only have standalone (dry loop) DSL service. I expect no dial tone from any jack in my home since I run a multi-handset DECT cordless phone system right from my ooma. that being said, i haven't checked it out for this reason. I assume ooma was doing some "magic" to let DVR boxes work w/o any scout or filter since the manual shows they are not needed.Groundhound wrote:Niknak raises a good question. In addition to dial tone, if you plug a phone with caller ID display into that jack, does it work as expected?
this is what i'm trying to get an answer to.
Edit: By dial tone I mean ooma's dial tone, preferably delivered from your hub's phone port (using a splitter to still serve your cordless phone) to your DVR via your home wiring. How to best get it there over your home wiring is the main issue.
