OBiLINE USB FXO adapter now available for $35

»www.amazon.com/OBiLINE-FXO-Phone···0DP4YOJ6

This device allows the OBi202 and OBi200 to use an FXO port. I'll be curious to know if its performance will be as good as the OBi110's FXO port, and if it can be hacked to work with non-OBi devices.

Speculation: I wonder if Obihai will retire both the OBi100 and OBi110 in favour of the OBi20x?

I hope the OBiLINE adapter is a lot more stable than the OBiBT adapter. The OBiBT adapter has a number of nasty problems.

Such as?

But given their experience with the OBi110, I would expect the OBiLINE to work at least as well as the PSTN port on that device.

I think RonR is alluding to the issue(s) outline in this post:

DaveSin See Profile, hadn't seen that thread, thanks. I find the last comment by SCADAGeo See Profile interesting, in that it makes no sense that it would work better with Asterisk than it does with the equipment it was designed to work with. Not saying I don't believe him, because I do, but just makes one wonder why.

I am just curious what USB chipset does the device employ.

Possibly, but I am not crazy about seeing Obi 100 go( I use most of the time 202, but my mom has 100) . As discussed on Obi forum, some people consider 200 a waste of money. Also, somebody over there suggested a stripped down, wifi only Obi 50. I like the absolute stability of Obi 100. I used it before 200 came out, never a single issue, neither had my mom any problems, important for a non tech senior.

I don't know about that. You're adding a whole new level of complexity to the interface.

They're going to need to add more USB ports.

If I'm not mistaken, you can use a "multi-port" USB Hub with the OBi202 USB port. The OBi202 will not support more one USB FXO adapter.

Save? the per-unit cost of the cheapest carton I saw, even before shipping, works out to $13.59 more than the single Obi100 that I purchased new a couple of months ago. :/

On the positive note, the OBiBT dongle works very well with Asterisk and chan_mobile. :D

I didn't say it worked better, I just noted it worked well with Asterisk and chan_mobile. :)

I don't have a USB protocol analyzer to place between the OBiBT and OBi202, so I could only make observations and take a guess at one of the issues, which may be a missing event handler (code to update the OBiBT status).

Same here, but purchased on Black Friday, lol.

FWIW, Fry's Electronics occasionally has a sale price of $29.99 for the Obi100 and $39.99 for the OBi110.

BTW - Fry's Electronics' marketing department will occasionally advertise the _full retail price_ in their ads.

That looks like the detected USB hardware related to a bluetooth device. I am more interested in the chipset used by the OBiLINE USB/FXO dongle.

I thought you were asking about the OBiBT, not the OBiLINE.
