[asterisk-users] problem when using Dial(Local/extension@context)

hi folks,
I use Dial(Local/extension at context) to make calls received on my DID number 
to ring a local extension. I notice that on 8 out of 10 calls, the audio is 
NOT working in the incoming direction (DID provider to asterisk). Local 
extension 2055 maps to SIP destination "homephone", and if i replace the 
Dial(Local/2055 at local) with Dial(SIP/homephone), it works fine 100% of the 

any suggestions?

(at this point, i can hear the voice of the person at extension 2055, but 
she can't hear me. I give up eventually.)
