    Panasonic X800 and MSI BluePlayer (A2DP plug-in)

    I know that Panasonic X800 naturally does not support A2DP. But I found something called a BluePlayer, which is sort of like an A2DP plug-in for certain phones. What it does, in conjunction with a set of Bluetooth headphones, you can wirelessly stream your mp3's, as well as receive/make calls. However, this BluePlayer, made by some company MSI, is only compatible with certain phones, and apparently only works with certain headsets. I purchased iTech (or i.Tech, or i-Tech) R35 Stereo Bluetooth Headset (www.itechdynamic.com), which works with MSI BluePlayer. Panasonic X800 was not listed as supported phone in the compatibility chart, but Nokia 6600 was, as well as a bunch of others, which use the same Symbian series 60 (version 2). To make a long story short, it didn't work for me. Then I found MSI's website, the company that makes BluePlayer, www.msi.com.tw , and they had another version of BluePlayer, with Panasonic X800 listed as supported phone!!! I tried that, and once again, it didn't work. It says that it only works with MSI Bluetooth Headsets. My question is: Does anyone have MSI and/or iTech headsets, and Panasonic X800? Does it work for you? Which headset do you have, and which version of BluePlayer do you use? I really want this to work for me. The headset (it clips on your shirt) is really great, and you can use it with your own headphones (there is a headphone jack, and you just plug it in). It looks and works great for making/receiving calls, but the main idea behind the purchase was to also play mp3's. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    yes.. Panasonic X800 also can use i-touch R35 or other support MSI symbian software to hear stero MP3..I'm used it also ..cool !!

    I think the MP3 need to set on 128 to 192 kbps ...if larger than 224 and 320 kbps will 'lag' for playing

    I'm using mp3's with 128 bit rate. I have tried several different versions of MSI BluePlayer. I have iTech R35 Bluetooth Headset, and Panasonic X800 phone, but it does NOT work for me. What brand/model of Bluetooth Stereo Headset do you use, and what version of MSI BluePlayer? Can you PM me and give me some details/instructions? I would appreciate any info. Thanks.

    I've tried several different versions of MSI BluePlayer, and nothing works. I can pair the R35 clip with my phone. I can start the BluePlayer. It looks like it's playing, but I nothing comes out of the headphones. Just some crackling noise. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I've tried so many things by now, but still no luck. And I've read some other posts on other forums that it works for some people. I'm not sure why it doesn't work for me. It's weird, because some functions actually do work, like remote control. For example, if one song is "playing" (all I can hear is just some crackling noise though), I can skip to the next song using the remote control on the clip. If I press the MFB button, the Voice activation program opens up on my phone. There is something definitely wrong going on here, I just can't put my finger on it. I also paired R35 with my laptop, and it plays music fine. Why can't I do the same thing with my phohe, why?! I'm thinking the next thing I'm going to try is to do a hard reset of my phone. Then I'll reinstall MSI BluePlayer and see if that works. I have a few other programs, like WMAPlus, OggPlayer installed, so maybe they are conflicting with BluePlayer somehow. Any ideas? What's your phone firmware? Maybe that's the problem? I have 04-18-2005. Could you send me a copy of your system/registry file perhaps? I'll see what the differences are between yours and mine, and maybe can figure out what the problem is. Thanks for all your replies, by the way.

    I was finally been able to make it work!!! Yes!!! This is great! The phone doesn't have A2DP, but I can still wirelessly stream music to the headphones IN STEREO, control it remotely, and answer calls. iTech stuff really works! The problem was with one of the programs (either WMAPlus or OggPlayer) that I had installed on my phone. There was probably a conflict or something. I uninstalled both of those first. Then installed MSI BluePlayer (I installed in phone's internal memory just in case - don't know if it makes a difference or not), and voila, it worked like a charm. Then I reinstalled WMAPlus (I installed on a mini SD card), and that was it. It's a beautiful thing!
