I am trying to use the Research Tools to access raw data from the Muse Headband. For the record, I have no problem connecting with my iOS device. I was following the instructions here to set up Muse Lab on Windows 8.1 with my Headband: http://developer.choosemuse.com/research-tools/getting-started.
Things were going fine until I got to step 2 where I attempted the following: “Put Muse into Pairing Mode by holding the button down for five seconds until all five LEDs begin flashing on and off in unison. Release the button.”
When I attempt to complete this step I observe one of the following two:
a) All the LED’s on the headband light up dimly while a “wave” of bright light passes from end to end, as I observe when trying to pair with my iOS device, without holding the button down.
b) When I press and hold the on button for a few seconds, he lights blink in unison once, then turn on and stay on. This will happen regardless of how long I hold the button.
I ignored the fact that the instructions are not consistent with what I saw thinking that maybe the documentation was not up to date. Subsequently, I found the device on my bluetooth settings with Windows 8.1 and saw the following picture:
From here, the LEDs stop blinking and glow dimly the same way they do when I’m properly connected to the phone application. I can even see the device from my control panel named “Muse-0315”.
Next, I attempted to execute step 3 which yielded the following result:
Once again, ignoring that result, I attempted to execute step 4 and type in 5000 to the port number. It simply yielded a blank screen and no messages, regardless of what I do.
If you could point out any error I’m making, or help me resolve the issue, I’d realy appreciate it. I’m excited to start playing around and developing!
