GoToRoom with Dolby Voice Troubleshooting & FAQs
GoToRoom with Dolby Voice is an all-in-one hardware system that lets you set up a small to medium-sized conference room to be ready to join and host meetings in an instant. Below are some quick fixes for any issues you may encounter.
The Dolby Voice kit costs $2,999. After that, the subscription fee is $29/month.
No! Any user can sit down at a GoToRoom with Dolby Voice and host or join meetings. Any users who do happen to have their own GoToMeeting account will have the additional option of starting their own pre-scheduled meetings from the system.
The attendee limit for your meeting will depend on the method with which you have launched the meeting.
If you started an instant "Meet now" session using the GoToRoom system's account, then up to 250 attendees can join your meeting.
- If you scheduled and started the meeting using your personal GoToMeeting organizer account, then your attendee limit will be the same as it is with your other meetings (i.e., it depends what subscription plan you are on). See What is the maximum number of people who can attend my session? for more info.

All other admins can use the following instructions:
- Find the phone's IP address by tapping the Settings icon > Advanced Dolby Settings > the More icon > About > System > IP address.
- On your computer, open a browser and type in "https://" followed by the IP address.
- Accept the insecure certificate.
- Log in with the following credentials:
- Username: admin
- Default password: 1739
- Follow Section 5.6 of the Dolby Voice Room Administrator's Guide on how to finish provisioning the conference phone to work as a regular telephone.
For additional support, please contact your PBX provider.
If you aren't seeing the GoToMeeting Home screen, check the following:
- Is the display powered on?
- Is the Dolby Voice Hub powered on? If not, press the power button.
- Is the right input source selected on your display? Double-check which input (e.g., "HDMI 1") the Dolby Voice Hub is plugged into on the display, and then make sure that same input is selected as the source. Try using the Source button on your remote control to see and change input settings.
It is not possible to schedule a meeting from the GoToRoom with Dolby Voice system. Instead, you must schedule a meeting from your computer or mobile device using your personal GoToMeeting account. If you do not have a GoToMeeting account, no problem! Instead of schedule a meeting ahead of time, you can simply use the GoToRoom system to launch an instant "Meet Now" session and invite attendees on the fly. Learn more.
If you are trying to join someone else's meeting, the best way to get the 9-digit Meeting ID assigned to each session is to contact the organizer directly (we can’t give this info out for security reasons). Learn more.
If you are trying to find the meeting ID of your own meeting, you can do so as follows.
- Log in at https://global.gotomeeting.com.
- Click the Edit icon next to the desired meeting, then take note of the 9-digit meeting ID.
- On the Dolby Phone Confernce, tap Join in the left menu (the second tile) to enter the 9-digit meeting ID and Go.
- Tap start the meeting and enter your organizer credentials.
In order to start your meeting, you'll need your email address and password. If you are just joining a meeting, then you do not need any login information. See I forgot my password, Why am I being asked to log in?, and Why didn't I get my "Reset Password" email?.
This means that you successfully joined the meeting but arrived before the organizer, so you are waiting for them to start the meeting. If you are the scheduling organizer, tap start the meeting and enter your GoToMeeting email address and password to launch it for everyone. Learn more.
It's possible that your company's servers might have blocked the invitation email due to security firewalls. Contact your company's IT department and ask them to whitelist our domain names so that they are not automatically blocked.

When you start a meeting from GoToRoom with Dolby Voice, the audio connection is instantly made. When in-room attendees join the session from a laptop, their speakers can cause loud feedback loop if they're connected via computer audio (VoIP). In-room attendees joining from a laptop are recommended to switch their audio mode to prevent feedback.
A network administrator may need to configure a firewall. See our Optimal Firewall Configuration page for the right domains.
There is no bandwidth. TeamShare is not based on range or wifi. The devices simply need to be on the same network so any wired or Wi-Fi connection that is in the same local area network (same subnet with no firewall) will be able to use the special "gotorooom.me" link and share. Note that connection from the internet (Network address translation) or through a firewall is not supported.
No. Only one person can share their screen with the special "gotoroom.me" link. If a second presenter tries to share, they will see the right "Ready to Share" screen on their second device but the conference room screen will continue to show the first presentation.
Yes. The special "gotorrom.me/" link that is used for content sharing is updated every time it is used or every 24 hours.
If you are using the room license to host an instant "Meet Now" session, you cannot record the meeting. You can promote another attendee as a co-organizer to record on your behalf. If you'd like to record future sessions, please schedule a meeting using your own GoToMeeting account and join the session from the room.
