KHCONF for windows pc


Recommended Posts

I could not get KHConf to work on pc. It said it was working - but no sound.

Our hall just switched away from KHConf due to problems.

Our new system is phone based, cheaper, clearer sound, esp. with music, But tends to cut out a few seconds here & there.

I use version 1.0.9 on my laptop and it works good. I like the fact that is doesn't "install" in Windows, you just run the .exe file each time you use it. Just make sure you have the settings correct. The access phone number, the congregation "pin" number and your caller ID (the last four digits of your phone number)

Also, be sure the correct "Speakers" are chosen in settings.

What Musky said works for me just fine. I have been using the app for quite some time to troubleshoot other Halls call-in and sound issues - I have been able to connect just fine as long as I have the right phone number and PIN.

They probably changed the way they distribute it. It used to be available here, but the page has been taken down:

mom use it on my windows pc the only problem i have had is 

 some it will just hang up or there is a lot of back ground nose and that is all depending on the hall i call 

 

When the connection hangs up, does she get the default "the administrator is not currently connected to the conference" message?

 

If she gets the message, there's an issue with the KH equipment, wiring, or telephone/internet hookup. If the connection reverts to dead-air, the problem is in her equipment, wiring, or internet hookup.

We use KHconf at our hall too. I've shown my husband this thread because he takes care of KH conf. He is asking what the phone based system entails in terms of provider, equipment and monthly cost.

Is it possible to change the "default" congregation when connecting to the meeting? An older couple in our hall have to listen to a different congregation (in a different city) when they call in. I guess it has to do with the pin number they initially entered, but don't know how to reset it.

1. Click the gear icon in the main KHConf window.

2. In the new window, select the "Account" tab.

3. Enter the new access number and PIN. Note that BOTH need to be changed, as the access number is unique to each congregation account.

 Thanks, but we have to dial in by phone. Maybe we're not using this system (scratching my head).

If you're using the Android or iOS app, the steps should be virtually identical. If you're dialing by phone, you would dial the new number just as if you were calling any other standard phone.

The problem is that we're only asked to enter the pin code on the phone the first time you dial in, then the system automatically connects to that hall the next time you call. There is no option to change the pin/hall.

 

Apparently one or both halls are using something other than KHConf. I'd recommend having the brothers in the sound department help set up the connection, since they'll have direct access to the service provider's tech support if there are any difficulties.
