    Telephone Transponder

    Leviton no longer make the telephone transponder. Does anyone know of a good alternative that does not include a PC based system

        I had the same problems so I typed up instructions and printed them on a small piece of paper and put it in my wallet. Here they are if you want to use it:
        <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">

        Call in and key in ##(passcode) and wait
        for 3 beeps.

        Press * for on and # for off

        You will hear 3 beeps after and on
        You will hear 2 beeps after an off
        You hear 1 long beep for an invalid command

        12# turns off 1 and 2
        12* turns on 1 and 2
        HSServer = C1
        WeatherServer = C2
        </pre>

                  Yea, The only time I use it is if my PC were to get it a state that HS and HSP are not responding. I can then call in and reboot my PC.

                    rupp - I assume you use an X10 appliance module to switch off/on to reboot. Probably on its own housecode.

                    Do you every have the module turn off due to noise?

                      Nope, Not so far. I actually have 3 PC's on Appliance modules. Knocking on wood. I have never had any problems with X10 noise. Keeping my fingers crossed.

                        I've been thinking of putting my RoadRunner Cable modem on an X10 appliance module. And have my HS PC toggle the power when the internet connectivity fails - which is 99.999% of the time the #&^%%^$&$ cable system signal being unusable by the modem. The modem will just sit in a reboot-myself loop trying to resynch. It never, ever does. Based on a year of weekly failures. If you power cycle it, many times, sometime between 5 minutes and many hours later, it will resynch. I gave up showing RoadRunner my measurements and data that indicates its their problem, not a bad coax drop as their repairman contend.

                        So, this would be a scripted power cycle on demand.
