I spent most of the day reinstalling my Mac in the hope that it'd get the bluetooth headset working, found it didn't, and finally worked out how to fix it anyway. |
The headsat (Jabra 250V) was pairing and connecting fine, but not appearing as an input/output device in sound controls. I'd been through the solution here a dozen times before and after the reinstall, but it didn't work. Finally I worked out that a) this headset should work fine on Tiger, b) this was a known issue on machines that had previously run Panther then upgraded to Tiger, c) it couldn't be a software issue as I'd completely wiped the machine, and d) the "reset your NVRAM" hints that had been scaring me elsewhere for Bluetooth issues actually made sense here. Once I rebooted with CMD-OPT-P-R it *finally* paired correctly and appeared in the Sound control panel.

And I got about 10 minutes dedicated to my email on the last In The Trenches podcast.
