FRITZ!Fon reports "Mediaplayer not possible during repeater operation"

When you try to play music files from the FRITZ!Box Media Server with a FRITZ!Fon, the message "Mediaplayer not possible during repeater operation" is displayed on the telephone.

1 Cannot use the function for technical reasons

If you are using a DECT repeater from another manufacturer to extend the DECT range of your FRITZ!Box, the option "Permit non-encrypted DECT connections" must be enabled in the FRITZ!Box. For technical reasons, some functions are no longer available when this option is enabled. A list of functions that are not supported can be found here.

Important:If you are not using a DECT repeater from another manufacturer (anymore) or are using a FRITZ!DECT Repeater or a FRITZ!Box in DECT repeater mode, enable the setting "Permit only secure DECT connections" in the FRITZ!Box user interface under "(Telephony) > DECT > Base Station". FRITZ!DECT Repeaters and FRITZ!Boxes in DECT repeater mode support encrypted connections.
