  Received card and Asterisk 1.4 Successfully working with TDM400P
posted by gbpnkans on 11th February 2007


I have received the efika card long back and was tightly held up with official work. I got the Asterisk 1.4 successfully working with efika. I have a PCI riser Issue, i will hopefully sort it out soon. PCI is much needed to make a call through voip and initiate a video call and audio call. Audio can go through TDM400P and Video can go through a webcam which may need a pci riser. Will update with the next milestone done here.

I love efika, since this small toy does good job with less problems compared to other embedded devices.
