Sorry for taking a while to reply to this, I've flagged this up to the firmware team and they're investigating.
I've also checked back through the beta test forum for R36 and I can only find one specific report about someone having an issue with SIP and this user said that they managed to solve this issue by turning off uPNP in the Super Hub. If you're seeing this issue could you try that and report back on if it helps or not?

OK thanks, I will try that later tonight - my VOIP phone is currently running on my backup BT ADSL line for work so I can't test anything during the working day in case I miss calls.

Not VOIP related. But since R36 I've been having exactly the same issue with my own (normal) router plugged into the SuperHub (in modem mode). Pre R36 it was fine, post R36 every 60minutes the router loses connection and needs restarting. For the time being I've taken it out of the chain and put the SuperHub back into router mode. Not quite the same issue, but similar symptoms.

An 08:00 call to the support desk answered by a top techie named billed found the answer inconjunction wiTh BT support on another phone simultaneously named Ian.
The solution is to forward port 5060 to the Falcon phone ip address under the UDP setting....
I now have calls arriving at the handset once again.
It's great when you get three heads together that end in a positive result.
Thanks to those that contributed with their thoughts. I hope this works for anyone out there with he same issue.
You get to port forwarding under the advanced settings , range is 5060 to 5060 UDP protocolNAND you find the IP ADDRESS of the falcon phone By holding the menu button for a few seconds.

OK thank you - I have just set that up and will post here how it goes - I have an hour before calls start coming in at 9am so it should be proven by then.
Thanks again - all credit to you for getting BT and VM techies on a conference call (WOW!) - it will be marvellous if it works!

OK that's over 2 hours and my BT Falcon still rings on incoming calls, so I guess we have a fix!
For reference, my uPNP is enabled and always has been, so I'm guessing that the Falcon phone may normally have done the port forwarding using uPNP.
R36 then, is causing the router to lose the port forwarding that is initially set up by the phone via uPNP after a few minutes. Forcing the port forwarding permanently fixes the problem.
So let's make it clear for everyone who is not familiar with routers.
1. Log in to your SuperHub
2. Go to Advanced / DHCP / DHCP Reservation.
3. Add Reservation:
Device Name = PHONE
MAC Address = (press and hold the Menu button on your phone to get it)
IP Address = 192.168.0.5 (any number on the end will do as long as it's not zero)
4. Still in Advanced - Security / Port Forwarding: Add Rule:
Start Port = 5060
End Port = 5060
Protocol = UDP
IP Address = 192.168.0.5 (or whatever number you gave it in DHCP)
5. Reboot everything.
Many many thanks WattoGold, I can finally stop falling over BT cables that were trailing all round the house from the backup ADSL!
Until VM release R37 of course.....

This dosent work for me, the only way I can get around the problem still is to lower registration time, which is fine but the cause of the problem in the firmware needs to be found and fixed.
These are just work arounds to the problem, not a cure.
