Finally have had response from Obi Tech Support but convinced that the person that read my initial support request is not the same person that is reading my responses and/or reads what is still going on. It appears that a "standard" pasted response is the norm.
>>The following has been their responses to my replies:
Click on SP1, follow steps to authenticate to your Google Voice account email@example.com
When SP1 becomes status "Connected" then make test calls out/inbound to ensure the calls are successful.
>>My response to the above:
Checked all connections as stated, restarting router and Obi box and nothing. The green "phone" light on the Obi box is now completely out which was before a steady green.
Signed onto my ObiTalk account and went through the available steps that appeared under "Configure Voice Service" titled SP1: Google Voice-OBI200. The 2 different avenues presented would not allow me to complete.
Going thru all the Obi Expert Configuration Menu, I found RED ! (Exclamation) at the end of the following boxes:
1. Obitalk Service Settings
>Inbound Call Route
>Phone Port 1
>>>Channels TX,RX Gain
>Codec Profile A
I need a fresh approach.
