I’m frustrated

Bluetooth Scanner - Constantly Polled

Just upgraded to 2.4 11750.

Previously I had no problems with my bluetooth scanner. Now after enabling it DM repeatedly (and annoyingly....) asks for it to "wake" the scanner, it didn't used to do this.

I was able to connect it once and leisurely scan. Now if I don't send something within whatever timeout period I get this message. How do I turn it off?

    I think we introduced this issue in 2.4 when we changed the scanning algorithm. Right now it times out after 1 minute of inactivity, which we agree, is annoying.

    We'll let you know when we change that.

    Sorry!

    I have the same problem; if they can not fix it(for three months now)
    why don't they just put the older version on line? I do not understand

    Thank You PWeiss! We are both hanging out here in the wind, I have no idea why this is taking so long. They acknowledged that this is an issue...

  • Hey guys, sorry for the delay. We finally got ahold of one of these scanners, and we have a beta out that we hope fixes the problem. If you'd install this and let me know if anything changes, that would be very helpful.

  • First thanks for trying, let me make sure we understand what is going on.

    DL2, after I select the "Enable Bluetooth Scanning..." pairs nicely with my scanner and works. After a minute (?) it decides that it doesn't like the scanner to sleep (?) and presents the dialog in the screenshot I sent above. It did not use to do this in the previous version.

    I'm sorry, but is this still not fixed 4 months after it was initially reported?

    I obviously made a mistake today when I finally updated my DL to version 2.4.1, because now my scanner is so frustrating to use, it is essentially useless. After it times out, I have to quit DL and restart it to get it to work again. This is a very bad bug.

    How would changing the scanning algorithm so adversely affect the Bluetooth device timeout?

    Yes, I'm thinking that the lack of response is a sign that they may think this isn't that a severe a bug. Yes it isn't a crashing bug, but it isn't just having to click on an annoying prompt either.

    After the 60 second device timeout, no amount of trying to use the "Enable Bluetooth Scanning" menu item window will get the scanner to work again.

    Having to actually quit DL and start it before it will recognize the scanner again, seems more than just a short timeout setting issue. Something is preventing DL from ever pairing with the scanner again after the 60 second timeout.
