Thanks Anthony,

That worked for me and your suggestion has saved me a good deal of time, however I would like to understand more about how the core functions work, so far I have looked at apps like mod_fsk to try to work out RTP packet handling.
I think it would be great if we had a module developers handbook that gave a detailed explanation of how the core components work together.

all the best Paul C.
