ok, once more a bluetooth problem with vista build 5728.
when i plug in the bt usb dongle, it is found and installed
properly. in the device mangager i can see a plantronics usb
bluetooth device, but marked with an asterisk. the details say
it is a generic usb driver
, but the device would not work.
then after a little googling i found out that i should try using
the (patched) widcomm bt stack. installed it, and pointed the
plantronics device to use one of the widcomm stack drivers
directory) which let me choose between bt audio and bt high quality
audio drivers. i tried both paths, and the plantronics device was
no longer wearing the asterisk.
i was then able to choose "high quality audio (plantronics usb)"
in skype, and tried called the test caller. While the plantronics device
makes the proper click sound (connected), i cant either hear the
caller nor speak to it.
any further ideas?
