    Well, since the reinstall, things have been working pretty well. There is one difference this time around..... I've got one device on AUTO and one on DISCOVER, with 2 different polling intervals. I'm not sure if this is what made the difference or not.

    Now, if only there was a way it wouldn't show my wife's phone as "away" every time she uses her headset in the house..... I know why it happens, but sure would be nice.....

    The last thing you could do, is to desinstall your Widcomm stack, and use the Microsoft XP SP2 stack instead. This stack works well with the plugin.

    I'm not running on XP so, unless you can tell me where to download it....

    Welp, I don't know what's happened.... it has stopped discovering either of my phones. I even dropped back to the BT110 dlls. I reboot, etc., and nothing. So, I think I'm about done. I don't know what's going on anymore, and I think it's time to move on to other projects.


    Thanks again.

    The plugin can use 3 different poll methods:

    - AutoDiscovery: it uses autodiscovery packets sent by the BT device. Auto-discovery must be enabled on the Network tab, and on the device tab.
    Thanks. That explains why AutoDiscovery doesn't work for my phone. The only option I have is to be "discoverable for 60 secs.".

    Widcomm 2.0.0.0 is pretty old. I'm using 5.0.1.2800.
    I have a Linksys BT100, which I thought was pretty popular here. I'm running the latest drivers (4.0.17 I believe). That's the only download available from Linksys.

    Another way you may try configuring the plugin:

    Use the auto-discovery poll method for your devices, and increase the "lost count" setting to 3 or 4.

    The plugin can use 3 different poll methods:

    - AutoDiscovery: it uses autodiscovery packets sent by the BT device. Auto-discovery must be enabled on the Network tab, and on the device tab.

    - DiscoverService: the plugin sends a service discovery packet to the device, and waits for response.

    - ConnectService: the plugin tries to connect to the Bluetooth service #x on the device. Once successfull, it immediately disconnect.

    The poll service is the service number. Your BT device exposes a number of services (numbered 1,2,3...), you can choose which service you want the plugin to connect to.

    Best regards,

    No luck

    Well, I still get the error, even with 120b. Guess I'll see if I can live with a 2 minute polling interval, which may be the only way this works, although honestly, that remains to be seen. I did see the problem, even with a 60 sec. interval.

    One question..... What is the POLL SERVICE option?? It's currently set to 1 for both phones... I don't see that one documented anywhere....

    I've got about 10 days left to decide what I'm going to do. Either way it goes, thanks a bunch for the timely support to try and figure it out!

    I really hope Franson will release a new version soon !
    Thanks. Well, the error appeared with 120, but it seemed to recover itself. It had been running for nearly 22 hours, which is sort of a record of late.

    I just swicthed to 120b, so we'll see what happens.

    Thanks again!

    Stipus,

    Thanks. I got'em this time. I'm currently running BT120. At first I didn't think it would work:

    12/19/2006 7:19:18 AM BT Debug Error while polling Brians Phone: An undefined exception occured in the bluetooth stack while discovering services
    12/19/2006 7:19:18 AM BT Debug Polling Brians Phone (Method=DiscoverService) on Network0 returned signal strength=-2147483648
    12/19/2006 7:19:18 AM BT Debug Device Brians Phone lost. LostCount=1 LostConfirm=2
    12/19/2006 7:19:19 AM BT Debug Error while polling Lindas Phone: An undefined exception occured in the bluetooth stack while discovering services
    12/19/2006 7:19:19 AM BT Debug Polling Lindas Phone (Method=DiscoverService) on Network0 returned signal strength=-2147483648
    12/19/2006 7:19:19 AM BT Debug Device Lindas Phone lost. LostCount=1 LostConfirm=2


    but, after the first pass, it found my phone. I've got the poll interval set back down to 30 secs. I'll let you know what happens.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks a bunch! Unfortunately, when I click each link, I get "Domain is under construction". I don't get any files. Hopefully it's just your ISP doing something. I'll try again later.
