Re: faxing errors on comcast digital voice
I have Comcast Digital Voice here and faxing is as good as an analog line with never a problem. I suspect that since Comcast's system is a dedicated local system, and not over the internet it *should* work with modems. I don't see why not. Those of you if it isn't working, try opening a trouble ticket for poor quality or something and then only drop in the fact you're faxing later on in the call.

Pl. check the memory received., If your fax setting is not done for memory setting i.e. when you receive a fax that immediately printed .Then the fax machine is right some times voice calls also generated if it was given earlier for that or used for voice call, so caller may try to communicate for voice call and got the fax tone (as the fax machine is in auto mode),he simple disconnect the line.
and fax machine may display some error message.
ECM (Error Correction Mode) The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to check the integrity of a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions are possible only between machines that both have the ECM feature. If they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are continuously checked for their integrity. Sufficient memory must be available in your FAX/MFC for this feature to work.ECM (Error Correction Mode) Detects errors during fax transmission and resends the page(s) that had an error. If you have Call Waiting, RingMaster, Voice Mail, an answering machine, alarm system or any other custom feature on a single phone line with your fax machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving fax data. For Example: Your Brother machine handles the Caller ID and Call Waiting/Caller ID subscriber services. However, if you subscribe to only Call Waiting or some other custom service and its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax, the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the fax data. Brother's ECM feature should help overcome this problem. This condition is related to the telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is crucial to your business, a separate line with no custom features is recommended.

I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.
