as well as a number of other 'fixes'. Can someone please confirm what works in 3.x?

Rob, I've added a new section to the Help Manual. Does this look right for generic instructions?: (note the path of the config file)

Hi Rob,

Many thanks.. Glad it was of use.
It's still working fine on my Laptop.
I'm actually thinking of get a 2nd one for my PC.
The Headphones allows for 2 connections.

Hello!

I don't know, but I have a Broadcom-based BT dongle to play with. Therefore, we'll check that out - because I sure would like to be able to use the Broadcom adapter for both Windows AND Linux!

Just an update...
I purchase one of the Plugable Bluetooth 4.0 adapters.(Broadcom)
I followed the instruction I posted above to get the driver, and then followed Rob's instructions.
All worked perfectly, Headset and Mic work perfectly for Media playback & SKYPE

Hi,

Not sure.?
I'm not sure how this fits with Rob's instructions.?
I can only assume..?? (sometimes a bad idea :) )
If starting from scratch with Broadcom based device for a clean start:
1. Install the drivers per the link
2. Make sure the Bluetooth "Blueman" applet is set to Auto-start in the Application Auto-start
3. Follow Rob's instructions
4. re-boot.??
5. Plug in Bluetooth adapter

???... possibly

Maybe that would help with my BT audio sync issues.

Hello!

Bluetooth has several different versions. I believe the latest is 4.0. AFAIK, for Linux, blueman is the only game in town.

I, too, have problems with some of my headsets connecting properly. I have a Bluetooth Android tablet that has VERY choppy audio on my 5-year old Motorola headset, but is fine with the newer 'chapie' headsets. Likewise, on my PC with an older, generic adapter, my old headset connects fine, but the newer ones will not. Go figure...

Both of my headsets are v4.0.  Must just be the crappy knock off.  I have to reset the connection every time I boot up the computer but at least the "good" headset always seems to work.
