The process of setting up new hardware seems particularly difficult, especially considering how easy everything else is configure. I am trying to setup a cell phone over bluetooth. The system seems to know its there, but I can tell how it configured it and what parts of the phone it recognized. Using windows I know the phone has at least 4, if not 5, child devices. However, I can't tell if LinuxMCE has found any of these devices.
I have gone through ALL the web configure screens, and end up on the one with device piping on it. I can't decided whether I should pipe "Bluetooth Dongle" directly to "phone", or whether I should ignore the phone and map "Bluetooth Donlge" to each one the the child device separately. For example, the phone has a direct bluetooth serial port that support the standard AT command set plus additional command set that allow sync of other phone data such as contacts. It also allows remote dialing. (ATDT) On another screen when I select Bluetooth the only choices it offers are Audio and Video and I don't want either of those right now. Do I map "bluetooth dongle" to "serial port" completely ignoring the cell's phones modem?? Should I be doing device piping at all??
My gut instinct is that all the choice I made were wrong and I am completely on the wrong track and just don't know it.
There should be a screen where I can say USB connects to bluetooth dongle connects to cell phone and has these child devices. It would be even better if it was plug and play, if windows and enumerate child devices automatically, it can be emulated on another OS.
Also when windows shares are detected they just say windows share instead of what the share name is and what server they are on. Therefore I can not provide valid credentials without using trail and error method.
