Can we disable the Icon 600's 2nd Gen Phone as a active microphone and use it as a touch screen remote control only?
Yes you may. Currently, this is done using command line in Icon 600.
The command is Audio setForceLineInMic
You need to ssh to the Icon 600. SSH using admin account and default password is admin. Below shows Unix or MAC ssh. On Windows, use PUTTY or appropriate ssh client
Boon-Wah-Tays-MacBook-Pro:~ btay$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Once login, you are at the Ruby Shell with the rbsh > prompt
Icon needs to be from version v.2.0.4 or later. Make sure you always use the latest software, published on Lifesize Software Portal (http://software.lifesize.com).
ps/ To enable 2nd Gen Microphone input: Audio setForceLineInMic off
Below is the help for the command Audio setForceLineInMic
rbsh> help Audio setForceLineinMic
Audio setForceLineInMic state:string
Force LineIn0 to be the only mic (even if LifeLink devices are present)
state - on or off
_rv - Return status
Phone can co-exist at the same time as the external microphone and you can continue using the touch screen interface of the phone.
In Icon 800, selecting active mic is possible on WEB GUI, under Preferences -> Audio -> General -> Active Mic
Thank you Boon Wah. I will try it out.
Can you explain how to turn the phone mic off when i need to use a external mic and then turn it back to normal? From what i am reading and what i think i did was turn the phone mic off using Audio setForceLineInMic on and then when i used Audio setForceLineInMic off that turns on the phone mic but not the external mic.. if tha makes any sense..
and now i found this Integrating Icon600/800 with 3rd-party microphones
To enable Integrated Audio mode on the Icon. From the command line:
rbsh> Audio setIntegratedAudio on
To disable Integrated Audio mode on the Icon. From the command line:
rbsh> Audio setIntegratedAudio off
I guess my question now is if i started with Audio setForceLineInMic on the just do Audio setForceLineInMic off to set it back the way it was..
Yes that is the correct command to set it back to the original setting.
