HP v1910-24G Config for Voice and Data

I'm having an issue with configuring the V1910.  We have a lot of ProCurve 2500 and 2600 units that I have configured and have no issues.  These V1910 units are another beast.  Anyhow, for this device, I have VLANs of 1(default), 59, 202-204.  59 is voice, 202 is data, and 204 is management.  I have ports 23-24 tagged for 59, 202-204 and untagged for 1.  Ports 1-24 are untagged for 202 and tagged for 59.  At this point, on the ProCurves (25xx/26xx), I'd assign voice and qos to the 59 vlan, but the V1910 CLI is pathetic.  Anyhow, at that point, I would be able to connect a phone to any port (1-22) and it would get an IP for the 59 network (via DHCP).  I would then be able to connect a computer to that phone and get an IP for the 202 vlan (via DHCP).  That is not the case.  The only way that I get the phone to connect to the 59 vlan is by having the PVID for the port assigned 59.  The problem with that is that the computer behind the phone also then gets an address on the 59 vlan.  I've looked at the routing table.  I've done some messing around with the Voice VLAN and QoS settings on the web interface of the V1910, but no luck.  Frankly, I think this device is crap, but it could just be that I'm not a fan of web-only options for configuring a switch.  As such, I'm hoping that someone out there has successfully used the V1910 in this setting.

I appreciate any assistance.

Phones should be able to pick up the voice VLAN ID if you enable LLDP-MED on the ports.
The 1910 is actually a very nice Comware switch, with a half-gutted cmdline. The full Comware CLI can be enabled, giving you serious superpowers:
That said, pretty much everything can be configured from the web interface, just takes a bit of looking sometimes... :) I've used them with Avaya deployments happily.

Thanks for the reply.  I did expand the CLI, but it is still a stripped down version.  I'm working to get used to it, but after years of Cisco, HP, and Dell with similar CLIs, this has been a struggle.  Anyhow, LLDP is enabled on the ports by default on the switch.  I've manually applied it, just to make sure.  The issue continues to be the same.  The phone (Mitel 5330) will only see the phone controller (Mitel 3300) if the PVID is 59.  At that point, the phone works perfectly.  Unfortunately, the computer connected to the phone joins the 59 network as well, instead of the 202 network.  I'm continuing to go through every setting on my HP ProCurves (2520G and 2626 units), but I'm not seeing anything.  All routing (including DHCP per VLAN) is controlled by our core switch (Dell PowerConnect 6248).  The uplink port on the Dell is configured identically to the ports used by the other ProCurves.  On the V1910, it doesn't seem to matter if the uplink port is configured as a hybrid or a trunk.  Any other ideas, or is there something more to look at within LLDP?

I had to disable the Voice VLAN Security.  It is enabled by default.  Works fine now.

"Voice VLAN Security"? I'll definitely read up on that.
Thanks for sharing the solution!

I worked with a consultant and we found the solution.  I just wanted to reward Tamas for providing useful information.
