I have decided to use MagicJack connected to my Vista Media Center PC. Currently it's connected to an XP machine. The problem is that I don't know how to keep the MJ softphone from popping up everytime I receive a call. I'm afraid that it will cause problems when I switch to VMC. Has anyone found a way to disable the popup of the softphone and still be able to send and receive calls?

Thanks,

Eric

You could try configuring it with a softphone other then the SJlabs Magicjack one. Xlite is what works great when I don't want to use the crappy one. There's a tutorial on this forum so you can set it up. The only problem you may hit is that it may be hard for you to configure the hardware with it. It may be covered in the tutorial but i am not 100% sure. Also what I do is use a SIP adapter. If you had sunrocket then you could use your old equipment or buy it on ebay. Hope it helps.


EDIT: The XLITE way works with Magicjack equipment see this topic

I use 4T Tray Minimizer for this type of purpose...I usually disable the ability in the magicJack to minimize to the tray, and instead rely on 4T to do it for me. There is an option in 4T so that the application cannot restore itself from the tray. Thus, on incoming calls, the magicJack will remain minimized.

I remember people talking about other tools in the old forum, I just cannot remember the names...

Autosizer works pretty well. That was my contribution on the old forum.

MagicHack's suggested program/method sounds like it is a better solution than autosizer.

Frank Zappa on the old forum came up with installing the magicjack device and its software under a different user profile; then converting that install to run as a service using some tools found in the win2K, XP, Win2K 2003, support tools; then when you logon using your regular logon the magicjack softphone runs totally in the background as a service and any popups it generates are supposed to be invisible in the background also. Works great if you never use the softphone for anything.

I use autosizer to put the softphone all but about 5 to 10 pixels off the screen. That way if I want to see or use the softphone I can drag it with the mouse onto the screen. Autosizer can also be used to keep the softphone minimized, in effect, but again MagicHack's recommendation seems like a better solution if you want the softphone to be permanently minimized.

  1. Start up your magicjack. Leave the softphone on the screen.

  2. Start up 4t, and click the add button as shown below.

  3. now drag the icon below on top of your sofphone

  4. Step 3 will have filled in all of the data to the form above.
