Looks good, so the the link I put up is for wired comms, your link is for bluetooth option, is there a wifi one as well? what's the best option. confused!

  Sorry nomad I don't understand some of the terms your using, I would like a hack that would give me the best options, I understand the convenience of wireless bluetooth now. Thank you.

yes it is a lot.also whit the bluetotth chip you can straight over the internet
and straight to the sd from rsm.for now what you can do is this.do you have skype its free works whit bolt usb chip or bluetooth.and the rsmv4.
fast conversations,video sending pic .and a very good thing about skype is this,
you can show your screen to your helper,so he can see what your doing or must do.my skypename is patrick.dierckx19 and you see robot elvis.we can start whit that.

I'm new to RSM and I'm bedazzle by the possibiltys of it hacked or unhacked, it's going to take me a while to know what I can do with the big fellow.

I've just found this on Ebay it's the same chip I think yes and cheaper, maybe I'll order 2.   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Wireless-Serial-4-Pin-Bluetooth-RF-Transce... also this one from UK      http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Wireless-Serial-4-Pin-Bluetooth-RF-Transce...

Hi Cheapotechguy

The 2 modules you have put links below will work fine with the RS Media and will work with windows XP and Windows 7.

USB TTL Chip

Wireless Blutooth module
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Wireless-Serial-4-Pin-Bluetooth-RF-Transce...

here are a few more that will also work

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Wireless-Serial-4-Pin-Bluetooth-RF-Transce...

For info about how to add the serial hack and install setup the chips with the RS Medai I have made a step by step instruction guide on my website http://www.themadrobot.talktalk.net/page_help.html under the section "How to connect the RS Media to the computer?"

Hope this helps

I don't think my Computers have bluetooth so I will need a usb dongle does it have to be a anycom bluetooth adaptor wouldn't any dongle work?

I have ordered a rechargable battery kit, should get it today, and I have a A/C adapter but I am also getting another so it will hopefully walk while powered from A/C.

I think my RSM is V1, I would need to upgrade too V2 for hack to work?

Thanks

Hi Cheapotechguy

You don't need to upgrade you RS Media to firmware V2. This is only need if you are going to connect via IP address.

Any bluetooth dongle will work from you computer. This is the one I use http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nano-A2DP-EDR-USB-2-0-Bluetooth-BT-Dongle-Adap... but any will work.

Hi Cheapotechguy

I have tried to post links to other blutooth modules and usb TTLs but for some reason the post I made is coming up with "View unverified coment"?

Thanks Gerber
Unfortunately most of the Ebay links you posted are not active, I'm going to go with this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Wireless-Serial-4-Pin-Bluetooth-RF-Transce... Serial bluetooth adapter, it's the only one I could find from a UK supplier, would there be any advantage to a wired adapter?
Also I get a blank page at your site from the link you gave, tried two browsers? would really like to see a step by step instruction guide.
