Ubuntu Gutsy
Virtualbox 1.5.6

The session seemed to terminate when the ad section tried to refresh, but it was live for ~5 minutes.

Update: Bounced vbox and rebooted hardware. MJ was recognized again without issue. MJ is now up and running stable. This setup won't be useful for those folks using a PC headset, as MIC input isn't recognized in VBox for what I can see. Analog phone would be the only option.

So far, it's ugly but working Smile

What OS rev. are you running on your Mac? MJ should work just fine on on OSX. VirtualBox is a Virtual Machine program like VMware.

no it doesn't work fine on my mac...im running os X 10.4.11 on an intel mac and it says that device isn't recognized when plugged directly into my mac...i dont know if it's the mj version or what that's causing the problem

It works fine using VMWare fusion and running it on windows, but it doesn't work in OS X. I went to download the upgrade/fix on magicjack's website and the file doesn't exist. Not even technical support knows how to obtain the file from this page:

http://www.magicjack.com/1/mac_hybridizer.asp

If you click on the blue link the files don't actually exist on their server...below is the link the blue link points to:

I only could get it to work on headset mode only.
it refuses to work on phone mode...it drives me crazy....i can use the headset,but when it switches to phone..everything is dead -voice out and in.

thanks
