    hi I have the minix neo u1 I'm just wondering if a pair of bluetooth headphones can be paired to the box to watch tv on at nighttime.

    thanks

    Hi, Yellow Dude
    Today, I bought a pair of BT headphones Skullcandy Inkd 2.0, but them are not identified by my Minix Neo U1. In fact the minix sends a note that there is not any blue tooth device, but it recognizes that a headphone is conected. I don't understand what the problem is with this.
    Any tip? I need a advice:(

    Thank you

    Did you press the center button in the phones for 3 seconds to get the blinking red light before trying to pair them with the Minix?

    Yes, I did. The red light blinks, then tansforms itself to blinking blue.

    My only suggestion then is for you to start by turning the bluetooth on in the Minix before pressing the button in the headphones. You should see the label "Ink'd Wireless" come up in the Available Devices of the Bluetooth area in the Minix. Then you would select it for pairing. Then you have to choose the Audio Menu in Settings, and in there select Sound Devices and in the Output Devices select Ink'd Wireless. If you have the Minix Launcher make sure the Bluetooth Icon is on (not greyed out), otherwise turn the Minix off and start over. It really should work. :sick:
