I have the HP bluetooth headphones and a bluetake USB adapter that comes with bluesoleil software. I was wondering if it's possible to pair the headphones with multiple PC's so I could switch the USB adapter and just start up the headphones on the other PC without having to pair again. Right now they work on my laptop and PC but when I switch the adapter I have to repair the devices, so is there anyway to fix this?

Hello Brutus... There's no "fix" because this is not a fault. The headset, handsfree and audio distribution profiles in Bluetooth do not require multiple pairings. There are some headsets that actually allow more than one pairing, but these are mostly the newer models used with mobile phones.

Also the pairing is with a specific computer. The key generated in the process is stored in that computer, and if you pair with another computer a new key will be generated, even if using the same Bluetooth adapter moved from one to another.

You could in theory copy the appropriate registry entry with the keys, but this is not something I advise.
