USB Bluetooth adapter
« on: November 17, 2014, 01:12:46 pm »
I spent most of yesterday researching getting my bluetooth adapter working so I could get my speakers working and not use headphones(bluetooth speakers).  I have Bluez (I think that came with 5) and looking under bluetooth manager nothing comes up.  I believe my problem is it is not in hci mode but reading and trying to figure out what commands I need to do elude me.

This is what I have http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/products/computer-accessories/RF-MRBTAD.html

Ok, strike my last comment as I played with and found my pairing settings.  The device manager sees the speakers and they begin to link but the link fails and no connection is made.  On my speakers it says there was a connection with the 'friendly name' ID but then resets to 'ready mode'. 

Sorry for all this :(
