Thank you very much. I didn't saw there are two separate vars

The other side is set to inband as it is dedicated to alarms (both ATA and
Asterisk) - no need to change the mode, but only 50% of the calls were
working with Asterisk (with lowered dtmf detection durations in the code)
and a bit more on the hardware receiver. Will test now with
DAHDI_IGNORE_INCOMMING_DTMF_DETECT on the gateway. Thanks again!
