I thought I would need 3 bluetooth dongles in order for the "follow me" function to work. Also the MD's will be pretty far apart in the house.
Has anyone setup this sort of configuration? I will be needing lots of assists.
The problem with the currently available bluetooth dongles is that they have way to much power so they won't lose connection when you walk out of the room. Alternatively, mobile orbiters can switch rooms manually, and Fiire has developped a very special remote for LinuxMCE where they find the closest (Fiire-) dongle available by increasing the transmission power step by step.
For it to work automaticly with bluetooth, you'd need Class 3 (very short-range/low-power) dongles. Unfortunately everything available on the market nowadays is at least Class 2 which typically has a range of at the very least 10m/30ft (usually much more).
