This is a bump and an update at the same time.
I just spent a little over 100 minutes (according to my phone) on the phone with a Dell tech support lady. She was nice, although she tried some very dumb things in the beginning. I ended up basically taking over the conversation, although she did fiddle around with a few things here and there, not usually helping but sometimes jogging my memory for things I had forgotten or not thought of. Of course, this is still about my Logitech Wireless Headphones for PC.
I was told at least 3 times that I needed to reinstall the Dell-supplied drivers, although I already had them. Then, I decided to install newer drivers, with her watching my screen via DellConnect. After the drivers didn't detect the headphones the first try, she went back into does-not-compute mode and started to install the old Dell drivers AGAIN, only to be stopped by me with a press of the escape key. Finally I convinced her that the new drivers are better and have support for Stereo Audio which the crappy Dell drivers didn't have, and so she kinda went along with whatever I said (the customer is always right!). We tried many things, I found out that what I had previously thought was discovery mode was in fact NOT discovery mode, and with that discovery (lol) we were able to get my bluetooth 355 module to at least detect and pair with the headphones. She helped me by letting me know that the common security code for Bluetooth devices is 0000, and so we connected and the headphones beeped and went out of discovery mode. Success! - or so I thought.
So now we had this, but it searched for services and couldn't find any available services on the headphones. It's almost as if the Bluetooth driver can search for stereo audio devices but doesn't support stereo audio service... Anyway, we tried many things, some repeatedly. At the end, she told me to plug in the USB bluetooth device, and it was detected by Windows, installed, and immediately worked and sent audio through the bluetooth headphones.
She concluded that I should contact Logitech but she thinks my logitech headphones are made so that they can only connect to the USB device. I still think otherwise.
My plan now is to do a system restore to before updating the drivers, then uninstall the Dell drivers, and then install a bluesoleil distribution. I tried this before with no luck, but I remember liking the bluesoleil, and also I didn't know that I was not actually putting the headphones in discovery mode. So, with any luck, the bluesoleil will detect the headphones (in discovery mode now) and work with them, and all will be well.
Has anyone else had success getting the Logitech Bluetooth Headphoens to work with the Widcomm driver v188.8.131.520? That's the newer driver set that I installed while on the phone. I would send a private message to bugmenot, except I know that's a public account linked to the website http://www.bugmenot.com
so it would do no good. I'm pretty much on my own.
