Hello, My question is simple, is there (If so Post Name) An Operating System for the Pi B+ that does Voip/pbx and is a media center like XBMC?

There was an article on that in the MagPi magazine issue #26. There'll be a follow-on article to that in issue #28.

Which add-on? The PBX or the soft phone?

The PBX add-on is NOT a PBX running on the RPi. The add-on is an interface into an Asterisk type PBX running elsewhere on the network.

Ok, I do not know what I am talking about. I was talking about the PBX plugin. Now another question... How From Scratch Do I Set up a asterisk server? And how do I get the app to let me download it?

Setup up Asterisk on a RPi or a PC?

In either case it is really best on a dedicated machine. For the RPi, have a look at raspberry-asterisk.org. For a PC have a look at nerdvittles.com for FreePBX.

There can be quite a steep learning curve for first timers!
