Hi,
in demo-mode Bluesoleil + Wiimote worked fine.
Then I purchased the full version (7.0.376.0) and my Wiimote stays connected only 2 seconds and then it automatically disconnects (status: idle).
Tried reinstalling the software but that didn't help.

Any ideas what to do?

Hi Rob,

The latest version of Bluesoleil should be Bluesoleil 8.

If you are using Smoothboard, you may want to consider using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack instead as you are able to use Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to help you with the Wiimote connection.

This can be installed by removing your existing Bluetooth drivers and using the tool from http://www.bluetoothinstaller.com

Hi Boon,

I plugged my USB-Bluetooth dongle in and Windows automatically installed the drivers. Isn't this the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack? Windows didn't ask for any driver.

Without Bluesoleil I succesfully could add the Wiimote as "RVL-CNT-01" to the Bluetooth "environment".
But in Dolphin 3 it's not getting recognized.

I thought version 8 only adds some features but is based on the same code. From their homepage:
"This version based on BlueSoleil 7 has added two new features, which are "Phonebook" and "Messages" management."


Maybe it's the bluetooth dongle. Buying another one today...

Second try with Toshiba Stack.

I can connect one (specific) Wiimote.
But the second one is not working.

This is what i do for the second one:

1. Click on "new connection" in Toshiba Stack -> Express mode

2. Press A+B Button on Wiimote

3. Wiimote is recognized as "Nintendo RVL-CNT-01-TR"

4. Right click -> connect (like with the first Wiimote)

5. When I press the "A-Button" (before I hit OK) nothing happens. It's not getting recognized.




Any ideas?

FINALLY GOT IT!
Here is the solution from nafeasonto:


I finally got a full proof way of having a WII mote connect to the dongle with Toshiba now. I see some people had trouble with the A method, as I did too. Because if the WII mote gets new batteries or turns off without a good disconnect you will get that error "The connection has been reset" while trying the A button method.

For some reason this fixed it:

1. First connect the WII mote normally but pressing 1+2 and let Toshiba detect it and connect then disconnect.

2. Then this is the part which makes no sense to me, but works miraculously. Press 1+2 Again but DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE. Let the WII MOTE blink, until it times out (stops blinking.)

3. THEN click connect in the Toshiba settings, when it says looking for device PRESS A or + or Z it doesn't matter, just get the thing to blink. (Just don't hit 1+2 or the Sync button, this resets the sync info.)

It will then connect. And you can click refresh or whatever in dolphin and it will be online.

From this point forward if you safely disconnect the WII mote, you can use the A method connect now every time to sync the same mote. If you accidentally delete the device information or change the batteries, you must restart the TIMEOUT method.

I do not know WHY the timeout method works, there must be a reason for this. But this works for me EVERY single time. IT took me hours of playing around trying different things just to try to figure this out.

que pena la molestia perdon que les escriba en español, pero la unica solucion es convertir el radio bluethoot en generico y posteriormente instalar la bateria de toshiba es la unica forma que lo reconesca y trabaja de manera adecuada
