Re: [Desperate] Is it possible to read SMS when the SIM is installed inside a Router ?

Can you take the SMS card out of the router to access the SMS from a phone? 1) This 4G connection is my one & only source of Internet. 2) I don't have a smartphone So suppose I initiate the Disney+Hotstar log in process after which an OTP is sent to my 4G mobile number. If at this point I disconnec...

Re: [Desperate] Is it possible to read SMS when the SIM is installed inside a Router ?

The reason I want to read SMS is because my ISP has introduced an offer of 1 year of free Disney+Hotstar subscription. In order to take advantage of this offer I need to log in to the Disney+Hotstar website with my 4G mobile number then an OTP is sent to my number which I then type to complete the l...

Re: What is the range of Bluetooth ?

Is the USB Bluetooth dongle plugged into the front or back of the PC? If the back, the chassis and internal components of the PC will reduce the range of signal drastically. Try it in a port facing your bed. Yes it was plugged into the back all this time. I just plugged it to the front. I have to s...

What is the range of Bluetooth ?

Hi, I use headphones to watch movies on my PC. For a long time I was using a wireless headphone which used FM for connectivity. Now I am using a bluetooth headset. Problem is when I try to watch a movie lying on my bed I am facing severe loss of signal. I just measured & found bed is 7 feet away fro...

:shock: Never buy from them again if they are selling fakes and don't be embarrassed as that was clearly not your fault.
Yes this is the first & last time I purchase from them. I have decided to buy all my future items from Amazon. Atleast afaik they don't sell fakes.

Re: [Defective headset ] Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

@MrEen Just to give this thread a meaningful end let me tell you what just happened. I just returned from the mobile phone store from where I had purchased the Samsung headset. When I showed them that it is playing in MONO despite the mention of STEREO on the package they told me this is a "1st Copy...

Re: [Defective headset ] Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

Is that part of the deal with the other set that wireless is always MONO? Maybe we can get that working in stereo? I searched a lot but can't find the link for the Zebronincs. May be because now its an obsolete product. We can't get this one to work in stereo. Its MONO output in wireless mode is no...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

@MrEen This is really embarrassing for me. I connected the headset to my phone for the first time & its MONO there too. I should have done this a long time back but since on the package of the headphone its clearly written "stereo headset" I didn't bother to test. It may sound really stupid but I ha...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

But one more test I'd like you to try. Uninstall Blueberry and install Blueman, then pair the headphones and see if that fixes this. Blueberry is the default Bluetooth app in Mint, and many users have better luck with Blueman. I think you should reboot before pairing. Already using Blueman. blueman...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

Have you tested the sounds you're playing on your normal sound card to verify they were actually recorded in stereo? Tried Bohemian Rhapsody? The section with mama mia should let you know. Yes I can clearly hear stereo when I am using my 2.1 speaker. For testing purpose I visited this website : htt...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

The daemon.conf edit has no effect so I reverted it to the previous value. I did reboot after the edit.
Only Firefox is running under a Firejail sandbox. Nothing else.

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

@MrEen
After antikythera posted I checked. This headset does include a noise reduction headphone. Do you think that is responsible for the MONO output ?

Have you tried pressing the Multifunction/Talk button once or twice?
Just tried it. When I press the multifunction button it pauses the track (both Smplayer & VLC). The MONO doesn't change to STEREO.

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

Regardless of the headset being stereo, the USB Bluetooth 4.0 adaptor you purchased and/or bluez is recognising it as mono. I must mention one point. This particular headset was given to me as a replacement for another bluetooth headset. Its battery was defective. That defective headset played in s...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

Also try deleting the files in /home/YourUserName/.config/pulse then rebooting. Maybe a config files is messed up, and that'll generate a new set. I installed Mint 20 just 2 days ago. Should I still do it ? Yes. They can mess up at any time. Please don't misunderstand. I am sure deleting those file...

Re: Bluetooth headphone playing in MONO ....Want STEREO

Do your headphones have a noise cancellation microphone built into them? If so, that may be confusing the PC into thinking it's a mono headset with Mic. If you have a switch to turn that noise cancellation off, try doing so before pairing the headphones and see if that helps. I have no idea. This i...
