I am running into a strange issue with a Bluetooth device and hope someone can help me. I bought one of these silly NeuroSky headsets. First, let me say that if you are thinking about it save your money. There is no software or real games out for it. Unless you plan to write your own software for it you have a $200 pair of bluetooth headphones. Ok, back on topic. I paired the headset and had some issues trying to get an application to recognize it. I went in to the Bluetooth Prefs and "Edit Serial Port". I went back into the app and entered the serial port it should be scanning and it would not connect. Tried it a few more times and started noticing that it was creating a new port every time I went in. Now I can't get rid of them and just unpairing and repairing the device does no good. The oddest thing is that I can connect the machine to the device and play audio through the device.

iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GH Ram, OS 10.6.1

On the flip side I paired it with my MacBook Pro and had no issues at all.

Any thoughts?

I can tell you that the iMac Bluetooth can be weird at times.

Um, why not just connect it? OK, not what you wanted to hear. Have you tried checking the "Open Bluetooth Setup Assistant at startup when no input device is present" in pref> advanced? (Yes, that doesn't make sense. Try it anyway.)

Yes, I checked it. It was all as should be as far as I could tell.

A direct wired connection unfortunately is not an option.
