Hi Laz,

I had the headset and the transmitter easily within 3 feet of each other
but my phone and my echo were both within the same distance and of
course they both have bluetooth so that may be the problem. I'll try it
again some time today, this time further away from the phone and the
echo, and if I still don't have any luck I'll give you a call.

Troy, Two things to consider first.

1. Did you put the transmitter and your receiving device close
together during pairing?

2. Are all other Bluetooth devices in the vicinity either turned off
or had their bluetooth turned off?

You may wish to use your mom's eyesight to see the pretty lights which
is a better indicator of what the Miccus Swivel Jack RTX is doing
rather than relying on your counting at the same speed I did which was
very slowly.

I paired mine with my Echo Dot so I can use it as a computer speaker
when I wish to play something on my computer for the benefit of others
and it works beautifully.

On the talking mp3 site it mentions the Victor reader as being something
that can be made to work with a bluetooth transmitter/receiver so that's
why I bought the Miccus. I might just have to call and find out why I
haven't been successful so far if nobody on the list can give me any

The sound, using the cable is wonderful, isn't it?

I made the mistake of trying to pair it with my phone with my hearing
on, because I need them, but they can pair. Tomorrow, since I've been
all day today, I'll disconnect my hearing aids and get it paired, then
re-pair my hearing aids to the phone.

Subject: [TechTalk] the Victor reader stream and bluetooth

Hi all,

I have a second generation victor reader stream and I purchased the
transmitter/receiver from last week so I can use
bluetooth headset with the victor reader.

I plugged the transmitter into the victor and turned on the headset
immediately said it was in pairing mode because it's new as well,
purchased elsewhere, then I held the button on the transmitter for 8
seconds as the audio instructions told me to do, and near the end I
the headset say connected but just a second or 2 later it disconnected
again. Before I call for tech support I wanted to see if anybody might
know what I'm doing wrong and why I can't get everything to work as it
should, I suspect I'm not that far off getting it right.
