Airturn BT500 problems
#21
Just to add to the discussion: I also recently purchased an Airturn BT-500 to replace my aging BT-105 that started to become unreliable due to flaky connectors of the pedals. I've been using a Windows-based tablets with MobileSheets for a couple of years, and never had any problems. But I could not get the BT-500 to work correctly in any mode, even though pairing did seem to work. I'm also very sure it's a Windows/BT-500 related problem, since the BT-500's pair and work perfectly with my (very old) Android-tablet and the Android-version of Mobilesheets. I also bought an Airturn PedPro in the meantime that works perfectly with the Android tablet AND the Windows-tablet.

Something I've noticed: All of my other Airturns show up in the keyboards-section in the Bluetooth-settings, but the BT-500 gets put under the "other devices". The icon showing which type of device it is, is also different from the other Airturn-pedals, namely a keyboard+mouse (desktop-set) instead of just a keyboard with the working pedals. My best guess is there's something wrong with the driver that the BT-500 gets assigned in Windows, or there's a bug in the firmware that only shows up in pairing with Windows.

Here's to hoping they fix the error soon. I really prefer the tactile pedals of the BT-500 to the pressure plate of the PedPro's, since with the latter I regularly get missed presses that really take you out of focus while playing.

Too bad you've already sent it back. I've experienced the same thing about 15 minutes after opening the BT-500's box by just doing a hard reset (based on the manual's instructions), and I've gotten pretty thorough steps from Airturn Support (that are not mentioned in the manual) to recover a BT-500 that's in such a state. It worked perfectly for mine either way, although they're still not working on Windows as described earlier.
