I have an iMac and a MacBook Pro. On both of them I have installed FaceTime for Mac and configured them the same way with my two E-Mail addresses to respond to. When somebody calls me both Macs ring (as they are supposed to). Now when I try to accept the call on my MacBook the call always fails. Only when I send my other Mac to sleep the call connects without any problem.


This is not only the case on my two Macs but also at my father's, who has a MacBook Pro and an iPhone4. It seems, that when both devices are active they both ring but you can't accept a call because the connection always fails. So the workaround is to have only one device on, which means that I have to make a regular phone call first, announcing my FaceTime call.


I guess that is not how it is supposed to work. As I understand it, FaceTime calls should ring on all active devices and then be routed to the one that picks up first. Anybody with the same problem? Or even better with a solution to it? Thanks!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)
