Hi,

I have just bought 2 Motorola bluetooth headphones so that my partner and I can watch movies late at night without disturbing our neighbours.  I got a bluetooth dongle, put it in my pc and added the 2 headphones.  Trouble is, when I connect to one, it disconnects the other! So only one of us can hear the movie!  What do I do!!!! Do I need another dongle?  What happens if I put 2 dongles in my PC, can the software handle it, or do I need a dongle from a different make, so different software used?

Help,

Stuart

Each set of bluetooth headphones connects as a audio device.
Most programs will output on only one audio device at a time.
Also most bluetooth dongles will only connect to one device at a time.




Hmmmm

I think IVT Corportaion's Bluesoleil can run several headphones at the same time. Free download might only be an eval version, but it's worth a try - http://www.bluesoleil.com/
