We have one (main office) office with an HDX7000 and a SoundStation ip7000 attached to be used as the microphon for the HDX. The SS is connected to our Avaya IPOffice phone system and functions fully as a phone, working just fine with inbound and outbound calling, as well as voicemail.
We have a second office that has just an HDX7000 with the basic sort of polycom microphone (not a SS).
Per the SSip7000 manual, we should be able to connect an audio telephone call (via cell phone or land line) into the site to site video conference and have the person on the cell/land line hear all audio from the HDX video conference.
In testing this today, we created a video call between the Main Site and the Secondary site, verified each site could hear eachother fine. Then on the SS, I pushed the "Add phone" button, dialed my coworkers cell phone; his phone rang & he answered.
At that point, we had Main site & Secondary site connected via video conference, and coworker connected for audio only via cell phone.
The essence of the issue:
Both main site & Secondary site could hear coworker on his cell speaking just fine. The cell phone person could hear the Secondary site just fine. Cell phone person could NOT hear any audio from the Main site at all.
We tried again with the cell phone person calling into the SS's extension and the SS adding the call to the conference; and received the same result.
Similarly, if we start with the SS connected via telephone call to the cell phone, and then add in the video call; we still get the same result.
What might be causing this issue of the telephone caller not being able to hear audio from the Main site?
