Bluetooth connection problems on OS X 10.9.5


I followed these instructions, and also all the postings related to Bluetooth pairing, but I’m still having a lot of trouble maintaining a successful connection. I wipe out all reference to the device on bluetooth prefs, re-pair, etc as instructed. Then I start muse-io, and it takes a while to recognize the device is there, before pairing.

Starting MuseLab, sometimes I succeed in connecting to muse-io, and I see live data on the eeg channel. But usually after about 7-10 seconds later, it stops. The headset has now disconnected again from muse-io.

Environment: Macbook Pro, OS X 10.9.5.

Incidentally, it pairs up and connects to the “Calm” app quite well, on my iPhone 6. It’s the laptop bluetooth link that flaps on and off constantly.


What version of the SDK and MuseIO are you using? What model of Macbook Pro? Have you tried using a USB Bluetooth dongle at all?
