I’ve “muttered” here before about H.239 and the various problems with it (H.239 and MCUs and this post). Today I had a compelling reason to make it work and room in my brain to figure it out! Honestly, that’s half my problem with this technology. Just no time to figure it out!
Today I figured it out. I found the setting on our Polycom VSX 7000s to make sure H.239 is turned on. It’s under System, Admin, Network, Call Preference, and you want it checked.
I also found the setting on my conference template on the TANDBERG MPS MCU. It’s called “dual stream” and has to be turned on.
Once I figured that out, I was able to receive H.239 from a Polycom VSX 7000 with People Plus Content through my TANDBERG MCU to a Polycom VSX 7000 on my desk. Yeah!!
I think testing H.239 scenarios is on my list to figure out too. It would be really nice to know more certainly which units can receive it and which can’t; and how to fix (update settings) ones that can’t that really should be able to! Now for just a little more time…..
