Re: dtmfdial

I put the export TXDELAY=500000 into the environment file and restarted and it seems to work and the first digit is able to be heard and decoded more reliably but I went to 1500000 and I did not see a difference. the values in the dtmfdial file I should be able to change the values in but it keeps going back to the same original settings.

I would think I should be able to change the txdelay and dial volume in this file.

usleep ${TXDELAY:-250000}

if [ -z "$DIAL_OPTIONS" ] ; then
  ${DIAL} --volume 25 ${1}p
  ${DIAL} ${DIAL_OPTIONS} ${1}p

I’ve never used it myself, but the reference to $TXDELAY pulls the value set in the environment file. So perhaps you could increase it there. Perhaps it is not defined.

export TXDELAY=500000

But if you have a specific interval you want to use, just remove the reference and place a discrete value in your script.

usleep 500000
