[mythtv] MythPhone experiments and "features"

I just got my asterisk server working finally, and started playing with
Xlite... Sweet! Must set this up for free calls via the office ;-)
The obvious next step was to play with MythPhone, which is also very
nice. Great start! I would like to offer some discoveries that may help
others when playing with MythPhone:
* For proxy registration, the setup only seems to allow "authuser" and
"password" to be set. There is a 3rd field involved, which is a
non-authentication "user". My initial asterisk config had user and
auth-user different, so the registration failed. Making the sip.conf
section name match the username solves this.
* If SIP proxy registration fails, it is impossible to "ESC" out of
* I was unable to use asterisk's "host=dynamic" facility with MythPhone.
Not sure why, but hard-coding the IP address works okay.
* Some of the calls I made were perfect. Mostly outbound calls from Myth
worked very well. Sometimes there was no sound received from the remote
end, even though asterisk reported sending it. For inbound calls to Myth
I never seemed to get any inbound data (I didn't have time to do a net.
trace, so not sure here)
Some nice to have features (perhaps I just missed them?) I'd like to add
to the TODO:
* Hangup without exiting MythPhone.
* Put a call on hold.
* The "M"enu would be better if it captured "ESC" like most other
dialogs. I quit MythPhone several times :)
* Option to disable Myth's voicemail so that the proxy can deal with it.
* Play a test file repeatedly down the line...
Anyway, thats hugely for what you've done so far, and let me know if
there is any way I can help out.
