Do you have to get BlueSoleil?
Question asked by Barry - September 25, 2016 at 6:17 PM
Unanswered
I have a question about Bluetooth. I have a motherboard that has Bluetooth built into the board and my phone recognizes the PC as a device, CF says no Bluetooth device setup. Do I have to buy a license from BlueSoleil to get it to work? Or is the something I can do within Windows 10 to set it up for CF.
 
Thanks
Barry

Centrafuse uses the BlueSoleil stack to interface over Bluetooth, because most functions required by Centrafuse aren't supported by Windows 10 yet.
 
So the answer is yes.
 
However, when you have bought an older version of Centrafuse (<= V4.2?), a license for BlueSoleil was bundled with your Centrafuse Auto license; check your account page to see if there is a BlueSoleil license present.
Have fun,
Louk.

Dang, I just got CF 4.4.9. Ok I will get the license. Is there a certain version of BlueSoleil that I need to get?

The latest release of V10 will do fine.
Have fun,

Louk,
 
Has anyone created an app for "iheart Radio" - I see Pandora and Tunein, but of course the station I want is only available on iheart.
 
Thanks

Louk -
 
Finally got the BlueSoleil license and installed. The program actually removed the built in Bluetooth from my motherboard and forces me to use a USB dongle to connect to the phone. Finally got to connect with the dongle and everything seems to work fine except playback through the speakers for a phone call. Works through speakers for voicemail playback and Bluetooth audio, but not for a phone call. Any ideas? I have everything set to default in CF Bluetooth settings.

BlueSoleil should be able to use the build-in Bluetooth radio of your computer. That is, when is is one of the supported devices. I have a Surface Pro 3 and use the build-in radio all the time for testing purposes. I also have  an Intel NUC 5i3 with build-in Bluetooth radio, but I use an external stick, because it has a hardware license on it (not sure I ever tried to use the internal one.
 
To assign the internal device to BlueSoleil, you need to use the device manager to remove (de-install) the device from your system and than manually configure it to use the BlueSoleil Bluetooth drivers. But I have to warn you: It is not easy to do so (force it to use the right drivers).
 
Strange that it just don't work with phone calls for you. My first guess is that you have disabled this somewhere; there are 3 places to check:
 
  1. The Centrafuse Bluetooth settings (first page, first radio button: The phone should be enabled
  2. In the BlueSoleil (local device) settings: The HFRE service (speech gateway?) should be enabled
  3. The Phone Sounds option on your (Android) phone
Have fun,
Louk.
