<-- Hi Brian... call me on node 27919 and you can hear one in action!

I am using a HP T5710 - it can NOT run full-duplex with DSP, etc... it 
works fine with chan_simpleusb.

This is also the platform that my FREE STAR* appliance is being 
developed on!

Give me a shout and we can chat about the FREE STAR* project as well.

Cheers!

Ramesh.
