Changing Your Playback and Recording Devices

You can choose the devices that you use for making and playing recordings while working with the Cisco Unity Assistant web tool:

Playback devices

Phone—Cisco Unity Connection calls you, and you listen through the phone handset or through the speakerphone speaker.

Computer speakers (if available).

Recording devices

Phone—Cisco Unity Connection calls you, and you speak into the phone handset or into the speakerphone microphone.

Computer microphone (if available).



Tip The phone offers the best sound quality for recordings.


Note that updates to the Media Master are saved per user, per computer. If you also use another computer to access the Media Master (for example, a computer at home), you need to update the Media Master settings on the second computer as well.

To Change Your Recording or Playback Device


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Assistant, from the Preferences menu, click Personal.

Step 2 If applicable, on the Personal Options page, in the Recorded Name field, click Play/Record to display the Media Master.

Step 3 On the Media Master, from the Options menu, click Playback & Recording.

Step 4 Set the applicable device:

Playback Device

Choose the phone or the computer.

Recording Device

Choose the phone or the computer.


Step 5 If you set the phone as your playback or recording device, in the Active Phone Number section, choose your primary extension or enter another phone number. This is the number that Connection calls for you to listen or record by phone.


Tip Once you have set the active phone number, you can choose devices in the Playback and Record lists on the Media Master (11 and 3 in Figure 1). The lists offer a quick way to change devices, and your selections are saved for all Cisco Unity Assistant pages that contain the Media Master until you change them again.


Step 6 Click OK.
