Is there a changelog to what's been updated in the 5695ex version?  I'm on 5463ex on both 200/202 devices without any issues other than dhcp not quite working right.  https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=12912.0

Generally stay away from firmware updated on embedded devices unless there's significant issues or major improvements.

Nope! The firmware with "EX" in its name includes support for OBiExtras, and is aimed primarily at the BYOD market. There has been no release notes made publicly available for this type of firmware, and to date, I haven't found any on their server.

It's likely that the firmware with "EX" in its name is in fact the same as the non "EX" firmware, which is aimed primarily at service providers and system integrators and doesn't include support for OBiExtras.

What version firmware should I be running on my Obi200? How can I find out which version firmware is currently on my Obi?
Thanks

SteveInWA

Pick up the phone attached to the OBi, and key in ***0 then 1# and the OBi will read back the installed firmware level.  The latest available version is 3.1.1.5695EX (the automated attendant will only read back numeric digits; you can ignore the "EX" suffix.

You can manually download and install the firmware, here:  http://fw.obihai.com/OBi202-3-1-1-5695EX.fw

Although the URL contains "202", this firmware also supports the OBi 200 model.

I know that I've heard that my Obi box will only work for 1 year unless I pay $20 for Obi Tech support. Is this true, or am I able to manually update the firmware and be able to keep my Obi connected to my Google Voice to keep it completely free forever?

Thanks!

You need to get your hearing examined. :)

Maybe your eyes too as your seem blind to the contents of the post above by SteveInWA. And http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=9.0 is a sticky. In the index, the third line above the topic you posted in.

(There is no automatic timeout that your Obi stops working after 1 year.)

Thanks for your great feedback. SteveInWA's post doesn't say anything about being able or not being able to continue upgrading the firmware to keep your obi up to date. And plus this is a forum were we post things that we have questions on, as I do not have time to sit on these forums for hours looking for an answer.

Seems to me that you got the answer to your question. I note that you haven't produced anything to back up your assertion that you heard "that my Obi box will only work for 1 year unless I pay $20 for Obi Tech support".

I suggest that if you can't take a bit of leg-pulling you should stay away from forums.

3.1.1 (Build: 5695EX)

WelshPaul

These are the latest builds:

Generic is 3.1.1 (Build: 5589)
OBiEXTRA's is 3.1.1 (Build: 5695EX)

If you subscribe to OBiEXTRA's, use 3.1.1 (Build: 5695EX). If you don't, or you don't want the OBiEXTRA's firmware then use 3.1.1 (Build: 5589).

Are you sure about that? I've been running 3.1.1 (Build: 5657) on my 200 for quite awhile now.

You may want to check out this post. This guy seems to know what he's talking about.  ;)

I am that guy and yes i'm sure lol  ;D

While 3.1.1 (Build:5657) is still available to download, it appears it was pulled. Not sure why! I'm not aware of any issues with it. So, as of right now, the firmware versions I posted above are the latests official releases.  ;)

Firmware 3.1.1 (Build: 5735) was released yesterday. This is unbranded generic firmware and so this version doesn't support OBiEXTRA's!

OBi2xx Series Universal Adapters
version 3.1.1 (Build: 5735)
Sat 14th October 2017, 19:19

Firmware 3.1.1 (Build: 5735)
October 13, 2017

Features and Enhancements:
* Added ability to abort firmware downloading on-the-fly, if the same version is already running on the device.

* Added two new parameters DetectPhoneCEDPhaseReversal and DetectNetworkCEDPhase. These parameters are configurable per PHONE port with Boolean logic. When phase reversal tones are detected from phone or network, respectively, these parameters enable or disable the local echo canceller and echo suppressor. By default, these parameters are Disabled.

* Added new Boolean parameter: X_VerifyServerDomain (under ITSP Profile – SIP web page) to enable/disable verification of (SIP Proxy or Outbound Proxy) server domain against its certificate on a SSL/TLS connection. By default, value is false.

* Added new Boolean parameter: X_DnsSrv (under ITSP Profile SIP web page) to control whether to use SRV lookup (prefix or no-prefix). By default, value is false.
Included Digital Signature Trust Co. Root CA X3

* Added new parameter: DTMFDetectMinLength (under PHONE Port web page) to define the minimum duration of a DTMF tone for it to be considered valid. Actual value in ms is dictated by the calculation: 30 + {DTMFDetectMinLength}*10. By default, the value is 3, meaning that the actual minimum duration is 60ms.

* Added new parameter: DTMFDetectMinGap (under PHONE Port web page) to define the minimum gap between the end of a DTMF digit and the beginning of a new digit. Actual value in ms is {DTMFDetectMinGap}*10. By default, the value is 7, meaning that the actual value is 70ms.

* Added new Boolean parameter: RemovePowerWhenNotPaging (under PHONE Port web page) to remove power from the port when it is not paging. This is only applicable when UseForPagingOnly is enabled on that particular phone port. When the power is removed from the phone port, the phone port indicator LED with flash 3s/3s On/Off, whereas when the power us on, the same indicator LED will flash 1s/1s On/Off. By default, value is false.

Bug Fixes:
* Escaped characters shown in description tag on device's local webpage.

I've been running version 3.1.1 (Build: 5562) on two different 200's without issue for quite awhile so I'm thinking maybe if it's not broke don't fix it?  ???

Maybe I'll wait until version 3.1.1 (Build: 5735) gets some more field testing.  ;)
So lets get on with it early adopters! ;D

I'm lost. What is this being used for? Faxes?

Quoteand DetectNetworkCEDPhase

What is the distinction being made between network and phone phase reversal?

What would these settings be used for? Alarm systems? Faxes?

X_DnsSrv is enabled by default for me. X_DnsSrvAutoPrefix is not.

CED is only used for fax call negotiation.  If you don't use a fax machine or Dialogic board, you can ignore it.
