    hi everyone,

    I am trying to get a motorola ht820 bluetooth headset working for a
    friend of mine and and quite frankly don't know what i can do next. no
    matter how hard I try, i can't get the blasted thing to record sound.
    playback is ok through the headset though. I have repeatedly set the
    recording source in Volume Control to the headset, as well as making
    sure its set to it in skype (my friend's program of choice he wants it
    set up to), but it just wont pick up anything. I was wondering if any
    of you had any suggestions i could try?

    He is useing Windows XP home SP2. on a side note, I phoned up
    Motorola, just in case it was a hardware defect, but was told that
    since it could play sound, this was not the case. they were most
    unhelpful, as they told me it could definatly record sound to the
    computer, but refused to tell me how to set it up to do so.

    thanks in advance.

    Identify the PC sound card and check its settings.
    (Read about some issues with onboard "Realtek" drivers sometimes muting the Mic.)
