I have a small VoIP lab at work. Containing a 1751-V running c1700-ipvoicek9-mz.124-5a.bin, a 3524-XL and two 7940G IP Phones and 1 Analog phone.
Right now all is well, they can call each other fine and I set up Music on Hold for the analog line when connected to the IP phones.
My question is. I want to put two different images on the 7940G phone displays. How can I do this. I have looked up docs and nothing helps.
I have two PNG files ready, I just can't find the right Doc to help me.
Any help would be great!
background images are only supported on advanced phones like 7941/7961/7970/7971
here is how to do it;
Maybe this will help everyone see what I have done so far.
Again, I am running a 1751-V with 12.4(5a) and I have a PVDM-12 in there.
here is my sh flash output

Here is the list.xml file I have created.
When ever I do the url command I get the following output.

Any help would be great.
Like said, bg images are supported only on 7911/7970/IPCommunicator and AFAIK the 60s/40s dont support this.
You can turn on a "debug telephony-service tftp-events" and see what kind of requests a 7970/7911/IPC does (it will look for the list.xml file) versus whether the behaviour of 7960. The way you set bg images in 7970/ipc/7911 is you go to settings and get a menu called User preferences and you get the option to set the background image.
Well, unless Cisco disabled the functionality in a recent release, you can do an Idle picture on a 7960. Not exactly a background image. The main problem with an idle image is that it doesn't show when the phone is active(hence the idle moniker), and it doesn't go away when the phone rings so you can't see who's calling or which line is ringing.
If you are looking for idle url, here is a link to it.
I think I may be confussed about what I want lol. I think it is an idle image that I want not a background image. I had my terms all mixed up.
Like on my phone at my desk, it has the company logo, then when you pick up the handset, it goes away.
Sorry for the confusion guys.
I read this document and I can't figure out. on My CCM, in that directory, there is "desktop". Do I need to create this directory and then create the list.xml file?
I am having problem also.
I am using CME thou. Right now I have a it is kinda working. But the idle image is not what I want.
It is just a line with a little world globe on the far left.
There is another discussion going on in "End Users Phone" forum about this for the CME and images. It said something about the "\" being the wrong way should "/" or vice versa.
I had a problem with CCM and my background images... there was no "Desktops" folder and then the sub folder. TAC sent me a ZIP file and I unzipped that in the TFTPPATH folder...(have to have the security rights of that folder and sub folders" The Zip file was a little off, or my Pkunzip.exe was odd... it unzipped it and didnt name the folder correctly in the next folder.
Then in the 320 folder, is the list.xml and the png files. The xml file had the pointers wrong in it. It was pointing to a 320x folder that did not exists.
And everytime you do an update to this folder, no matter how small it is, you have restart the TFTP service on the CCM.
hope this helps
I am able to get background images to work fine on a 7970, but not 7961. Under the user settings, there is an option for background images. Is this available, and if so, how?
