    For anyone who has asked about _cheap_ FXO gateway, I got Asterisk up and
    running with 2 FXO lines for ~20$, using BT Speedway ISDN card bought on
    eBay. Of course you have to have ISDN line for this to work, and it is S/T
    bus not U. Not sure how it is in US but in Europe NT1 boxes supplied by
    telco will have S/T connections.

    I'm still faced with multitude of small quirks to solve, like how to provide
    ringing indication to SIP caller when the call goes out via ISDN, but
    everything in due time...

  2. Try adding a |r to the end of your exten line.

    E.G. exten => 1234,1,Dial,SIP/||r
    E.G. with timeout: exten => 1234,1,Dial,SIP/|20|r

    Great! I appreciate the report. I've been wanting to do the same.

    Now if I could just find where to buy some of these things in the USA...

    For anyone who has asked about _cheap_ FXO gateway, I got Asterisk up and
    BT Speedway card is sold by UK sellers, and most will ship to US. Check your
    ISDN NT1 box first to ensure it has S/T bus connectors... one possible
    alternative is US Sportster internal ISDN TA which as U bus.

    The BT Speedway card is a re-badged AVM Fritz! card.
    Look here for details and dealers;
