Making Bluetooth work on x86 - please help

 'm having problems with enable/disable the BT device from the GUI.

So here is my status so far -

hciconfig + hcitool are working (I can scan).
even - bttest enable + disable are working, as I understand this
means hcid is working ok.

As far as I can see bttest enable - is calling the same bt_enable
function as from the jni, then why the GUI is not able to work?
Can someone please help me with this?

Here is my init.rc - (the hciattach & rfkill are not relevant I
removed them from the code)
# chmod 0660 /dev/ttyS1
# chown bluetooth bluetooth /dev/ttyS1
service dbus /system/bin/dbus-daemon --system --nofork
socket dbus stream 660 bluetooth bluetooth
user bluetooth
group bluetooth net_bt_admin
service hcid /system/bin/hcid -s -n -f /etc/bluez/hcid.conf
socket bluetooth stream 660 bluetooth bluetooth
socket dbus_bluetooth stream 660 bluetooth bluetooth
group bluetooth net_bt_admin misc
#service hciattach /system/bin/hciattach -n /dev/ttyS1 texas 115200
# user bluetooth
# group bluetooth net_bt_admin misc
# disabled
# oneshot

It is hard to help with the information you have given. If you can
scan from the command line then that is a very good start. Do you have
the logs when you try and turn BT on/off from the UI? I would try
instrumenting the UI code and JNI code with log statements to see
where exactly it fails.

1. Playing RTSP or m3u with MediaPlayer

I have seen conflicting reports about this, but at least one which
says it's possible.  My code looks like the following (although I've
tried a different method with the same results:

                MediaPlayer player = new MediaPlayer ();
                if (player != null)
                                Log.d (TAG, "Player created.");
                                player.reset ();
                                player.setDataSource (URL);
                                player.prepare ();
                                player.start ();
                        catch (Exception e)
                                Log.d (TAG, "Exception: " + 
e.getLocalizedMessage ());

I've used two different URLs that look like:


In all cases (both in emulator and on HTC Evo) prepare() throws an
exception (status=0x1).  Anyone know what's going on?



2. Playing video with an alpha channel

I have a project that requires playing a video with an alpha channel
(transparent background) over the top of a  background image but so
far I can't figure out a way to do it.

Does anyone know if this is possible or not?  I've searched every
possible combination without finding anything useful.

Thanks for your assistance.
