Software :: Using Bluetooth Headset/non-apple Bluetooth?

Sep 1, 2005

Hey guys..>I'm trying to set up my jabra bt200 bluetooth headset to work with my mac (osx 10.4.2, 15" powerbook 1.67ghz)...and I can get it to pair, but it won't stay connected for more than a split second. this is a problem i've seen a few people have, looking around on various forums and stuff, and i was trying various solutions when i decided to try doing a firmware upgrade on the internal bluetooth module. I downloaded the firmware updater (1.2), tried to run it and it came up with the following error:

"This computer does not have an Apple Bluetooth module installed. It cannot be updated by this application."

Why would my Powerbook not have an Apple Bluetooth module?!?!?! It's got bluetooth installed, it's internal, but looking at the system profile, it says it's the manufacturer is Cambridge Silicon Radio. So is this normal or what? Is the firmware upgrade even going to help me out in the end? Just to clarify...the powerbook came with bt installed factory...it's not something added by me!

MacBook :: Weird USB Headset And Skype Volume Options For System

Feb 23, 2009

I was on a SkypeIn call and everything was working perfectly. Half way through my call, another SkypeIn call came through that I rejected. The second I pressed the reject button, the headset volume decreased by half. When the call finished I played around with the volume settings (from the headset itself, from the keyboard and from within system preferences) to no avail. I removed the headset and plugged it back in. No change. I restarted - no change I shutdown - let things sit for a few minutes and then started up again - no change Here is where it starts to get a little weird. When I play iTunes or some such similar application the volume plays at a normal level but as soon as I use Skype or some other random applications (voice mainly I think) the volume is very low again.

OS X Technologies :: Enable APT-X For Bluetooth Headset?

Mar 23, 2012

MacBook Pro late 2009

10.7 (OS X Lion) 

Today I received my brand new Sennheiser PX 210 BT. This headset supports APT-X for significant better audio quality. 

Alt+click the bluetooth icon in the menubar tells me the following info:

Bluetooth Version: 4.0.3.f12 Active codec: SBC (this should be APT-X) 

How can I change/fix this so I can use APT-X as the bluetooth codec?

Software :: Tried To Use The Internet And Skype, But The Skype Didn't Work At All?

Jun 5, 2008

I have reached this website after scrawling to find a solution on the internet. I hope someone can help me with this problem.I have a 4 years old G4 ibook (OS 10.3.7), and have been using it for internet, skype and foto-storage mainly.Situtation:Yesterday I tried to use the internet (Firefox browser) and skype, but the skype didn't work at all. Since firefox was not working properly either, I did force quit and restarted the computer. I attempted this several times until I could use both applications (never had any problems before). However, Skype didn't work, and in the end, I could not quit firefox at all. At last I did force quit again, and saw white screen with apple icon at the centre when restarting. No time-spinning mark, the apple just sits there.

Troubleshooting that I have done:
I called up support center, and they told me that it's very likey that the computer is stopping at "'carnel" stage (I'm sorry but I don't know what this is). The possibility that it's got something to do with HD is 50/50, so I may have to send it to repairing service in the worst case. They told me to try using Disc Install CD1 to check/repair something wrong in my computer. So I followed the instructions and inserted the install CD and restart the computer with "c" key. The computer read the CD and Installer window showed up. As instructed in a manual, I used First Aid in Disc Utility, and tried "repairing disc". After a while it said "1 HFS has been repaired". It also said that Macintosh HD doesn't seem to have a problem", so I quit the disc utility and restarted the computer.

Against my expectation, the same white screen with apple came up on the screen and sits there with no other movements.I'm afraid of trying somethinig without further so I hope I can get the same story or ideas that someone here might have.

MacBook Pro :: Disable The Built-in Bluetooth And Enable A Bluetooth Dongle Instead?

Mar 4, 2008

I have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard that I want to share between a PC and MBP via a DVI/USB KVM switch. I think I can do this by plugging a USB Bluetooth dongle into the KVM's USB input.

If I use the MBP's built-in bluetooth then when I switch from one computer to the other via the KVM, the keyboard and mouse will stay paired with the MBP; but if I disable the built-in hardware then the dongle can provide the bluetooth capability and be switched between the computers.

Is there any way to use the built in speakers in a mac while the headset is plugged in?

I live in a collective, so I can not use the speakers 50% of the time. When I plug in the Headset, the speakers go off.

And I have not found a way to activate the speakers without plugging out the headset.

OS X :: MacBook Does Not Recognize USB Headset Mic Unless Plugged Into Hub

Feb 25, 2010

Here's my puzzler of the moment: I have a Creative USB headset (the Fatal1ty gaming headset for Mac, which I bought at an Apple store). It's been working fine via USB (with the notable exception that it stops working easily if even slightly jostled).

In the last few days, however, it stopped working when plugged directly into the Mac. The audio out still works, and it shows up as an audio input device, but when selected it does not detect any incoming audio.

I assumed it was a headset problem until I tested it plugged into a USB hub - plugged into the hub, it works fine.

MacBook Pro :: Stereo Headset Mic Not Working

Mar 4, 2010

So I bought this Logitech ClearChat Stereo headset at Walmart today. It doesn't work. The headphone portion does, but the mic doesn't. Yes, the switch is switched to "on". Now it does say on the side of the packaging that it will not work on Apple hardware, but I decided to give them a try anyway, finding out that it doesn't work.

It's just 2 standard 3.5mm plugs (one for the mic, and one for the headphone). I don't see why it wouldn't work. I have a cable that has the same 3.5mm plugs on both ends and I can plug one end into my iPhone and one into my MBP's line-in, start playing music and the audio will work. I guess it really meant what was on the side of the box, but I'd like to get this working. I've read a few reviews for this on Newegg of people getting it to work on their MacBook's.

Windows On Mac :: Parallels - USB Headset Mic Does Not Work?

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running the latest version of Parallels 5.0 and Windows 7. When I plug the headset in it asks me whether I want to plug it into Mac OS or Virtual Machine. I've tried both but for some reason it doesn't seem to work! Only the headphones will work, yet the mic won't - consequently it will automatically use the built-in mic of my MBP. However, my headset works just fine in VMWare. How could I make the headset's mic work in Parallels too?

OS X :: Hardware Cracks Concerning USB Adapter For A Headset?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm pretty new to Macs, I've tried googeling and searching this forum. I didn't find anything sounding like my problem, so I hope somebody can help me with this.

I use Teamspeak and Skype on a regular basis. I already knew that you require a USB adapter to use your normal headset, so I bought one by Creative (actually, a USB soundcard) when my new iMac arrived.

At first, everything seemed to work fine. I was talking to a few guys in Teamspeak when they told me I sound like Darth Vader all of a sudden. I doublechecked that by switching channels and doing the Teamspeak self voice test. It sounded really choppy, my friends were right.

I disconnected the USB soundcard, replugged it a few times. Eventually, it worked again. Well, it didn't prove to be for ever, since the problem came back - I can't say there's any special situation and I couldn't reproduce it. It was just random.

Ok, my second guess was that I would require different hardware, since Creative didn't provide any drivers for MacOS. I went back to the shop and bought a simple adapter by Speedlink, cheap stuff, I know. I just figured "less complicated hardware equals less problems". This Speedlink adapater just transforms the signal for USB.

MacOS found it straight away, and I started using my headset again. Well, cut a long story short, the same thing happened today, at random. My voice suddenly becomes chopppy and sounds something like Vader. I switch to internal Mic, use it for a few minutes, switch back (Sound Source is great), the mic works for a while, and then it all starts over again.

So, any of you guys have an idea what the problem is?

(before you ask, it's a Sennheiser headset, upper middle class, and has never failed me before)
