Until VFX finishes their Asterisk support, and releases capability to the unsuspecting public, its still doable for about $200 of extra hardware. For those people that are sooo keen for VFX on their Asterisk box, this is a relatively economical way to do it, and the hardware should still fetch 75% of purchase price in 6months or a year when resold (assuming by then you will have VFX directly SIP trunking into your box.)

x100p - $75 on Trademe
PAP2T or other VFX device - $100 - $300 at nicegear.co.nz or dse.co.nz
VFX VoIP landing safely in my Asterisk box - priceless

Theres some things money cant buy, for everything else, get off your lazy butt and get a job.

Any reason one cant get the SPA3102 and loop it back into itself?

Problem with doing stuff like this is that you lose the ability to dial without massive delays while the dtmf does its thing, you lose knowing when the other end has hung up and you there is the chance of getting echo from the analog connection.

Its a solution, but a lame one.

Oh, and it only supports one call at a time too.

SPA3102 is supported on VFX now, so would be the only device required if thats your cup of tea.

Only one channel doesnt bother me, this is a 2 person + young child household. We mostly have our home phones for incoming calls (and not many at that).

I just did some testing, and from the last digit being dialled on the handset, the destination line is ringing in about 3.5 seconds. So there is certainly no 'massive delays' for me.

Its a solution that works brilliantly for me while I wait for Asterisk SIP support from VFX.
