Hints with Special chars

I’m trying to set a hint by using the following command:

exten => *61,hint,Local/*601@ADMIN

but for some reason, it’s not working when a new local channel to ext *601 is created, however it works when I’m using ext without * in front:

exten => *61,hint,Local/601@ADMIN

Is there any to make it working with the * (star) in front?

I tried to escape it, but without success:

exten => *61,hint,Local/[*]601@ADMIN


This doesn’t mean much without the contents of the ADMIN context.

(To be honest, I didn’t realise you could take device states on local channels.

Actually, I did, at one time, but it is very limited - basically does it exist or not.)
