PostPosted: Tue Jun 23, 2009 5:57 am    Post subject: Initiating calls without pressing ## Reply with quote

Since the magic jack software is able to dial out immediately after you finish dialing your number, I was thinking that it must be possible to initiate phone calls without having to press ##, when using the magic jack and the ip phone center.

Does anyone have some thoughts about how to make this possible...it would sure make using a cordless phone a whole lot more convenient! Very Happy

Can we use both Skype and MJ at the same time.. Most of the time either of these would be free.. I am not expecting to handle both the calls at the same time...rather using one or the other at one time not having go through all these changes.. i have a dedicated PC running for Magic Jack.. so.. I am wondering if I can use that for Skype too.

This is already answered in my post, which is the first post in this forum.

Since I do not have this configuration on my computer, I am unable to address this. I say go for it, and let us know the results. Wink

Anyone out there try the Philips VOIP321 series that has a Skype bundle and a Skype button right on their handsets?


http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Single-Handset-VOIP3211G-37/dp/B000FZXHL4

Just wondering how the switching between the MJ and Skype would work on this model? It also has it's own slightly customized version of Skype and recommends you use the CD included with the phones for the Skype and not to download from the internet.

I chose not to go this route, as I wanted to use my existing cordless phone, and not incur the expense of an added Skype handset.

I am not not sure how this setup would work switching back and forth between Skype & magicJack. If you try it, let us know.

PostPosted: Mon Jul 13, 2009 2:19 pm    Post subject: Working with Vista Reply with quote

So I finally got these drivers (most of them but not all) to work under Vista 64 (and Vista 32).

The first problem with both versions of Vista is that you must install from an Admin users account of which the "User Account Control" option is turned off in the security options. Otherwise, this software will not install correctly.

If you do not see the dialog that requests you to enter your name, then you have failed to do the above.

When you have the above installed under either Vista, you will always have an error when starting up. From the previous email from me on same subject, that message indicates a problem with the database recording.

Just select OK, and your MJ hardware will function with Skype without requiring ## to dial or answer. As a matter of fact, if you do enter ## to dial a call, the software will dial the number that you want and also dial the first entry in your contact list - so don't hit ##.

However, in the system event log, the file "TLRecAgent.sys" will fail to load. This driver is installed but cannot be loaded in either version of Vista, for some reason??

Anyone have a Vista version of this driver?

This software has always run on my Vista 32 laptop without any issues, workarounds or special configurations. It has basically been plug & play for me.

One point on a graph does not make a trend... :)

This driver set has specific needs to be installed successful. You obviously have met those needs. However, as evidenced here, others have not.

Again, does anyone have the Vista version of this driver??

It is not one point on a graph, but rather the majority that have no issue with the software and/or drivers. As mentioned in my earlier posts, newer chipsets on the MJ dongles can have issues, but the older chipsets work well.

Again, theses drivers are the Vista version!!!

Ok... you are right. there is no problem with these software. It runs perfectly just like your logic.

I have posted on this forum to offer assistance, not to argue or banter back & forth with sarcastic comments.

If that's what you're looking for, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere.

The newer magicJack chips appear not to be compatible with the TJ software. Older dongles appear to work fine.


Is there a solution for this or are the new dongles hopeless?
