Default Can this be done?

Please Login to Remove!

First of all this is a great forum. I have been reading lots of post and I guess I finally have a question. I have attached to my stereo the blackberry remote stereo gateway. It works great with my blackberry but what I would like to do, is to be able to play music with my desktop PC and have the sound go through my stereo via the bluetooth gateway. I tried using the kensington bluetooth dongle but. I did not have any luck with it trying to pair with the bb gateway unit. Im hoping this is possiable and that someone here can suggest a solution. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply....

What bluetooth dongle do you use? I want to be able to use windows media player. Does your set up work with WMP?

I don't use it that much. I had a cheap dongle that worked ok. I did NOT use the included drivers. Just use the basic windows drivers. Now I have a built in bluetooth card in my Dell laptop and it works fine (although, it won't connect to DM because I can't get it to use basic Windows drivers.)
