Hi list,

Maybe a bit offtopic...

 From my understanding the cs60-usb is seen by linux as a composite 
device, with audio device and hid:
	usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7
	usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
	drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c: usb_submit_urb(ctrl) failed
	drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c: timeout initializing reports
	input: Plantronics CS50/CS60-USB Headset as /class/input/input8
	input,hiddev0: USB HID v1.00 Device [Plantronics CS50/CS60-USB 	
	Headset] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1
Attached is the lsusb -v result for the device.

Audio  works fine (with snd_usb_audio), and I was able to access the 
various buttons (pickup/answer, mute, volume) from userspace (using 
/dev/hiddev0 or /dev/input/eventX).

Now there's one more functionnality available on Windows: when the 
handset is on base and a calls comes in, the base rings. Is this doable 
from a Linux program ?
