Afternoon,

We have an issue with a meeting room setup:
Dell OptiPlex 3050 Desktop
Apple Magic Keyboard
Apple Magic Mouse
Philips Bluetooth Conference Speaker
Startech USB dongle

The issue is that there are major issues when we connect the speaker to the dongle.
The dongle refuses to work.
The keyboard and mouse connect fine.

By default can bluetooth dongles connect to more than 2 devices
There is no inbuilt bluetooth on the PC.
Do we need another bluetooth dongle? Do we then connect the speaker to the other bluetooth dongle?

Just looking to see if anyone has had a similar issue.
