    Hey, I'm not stranger to A2DP (Bluetooth Stereo) but I was wondering, that Mac supports A2DP output (to my headphones for example) but will it take it as an input?

    I mean, when I pair my Pocket PC and my Mac, my phone only picks up Serial Port and Active Sync, but I imagine it's just because the bluetooth device is not showing it as a potential protocol.

    Does anyone know of anyway I could achieve some form of A2DP input?

    Yes it will. Just go to the sound tab of preferences and configure the input from there.

    For that to happen I assume that my phone would have to have paired with my Mac as a Wireless Stereo device which it doesn't offer.

    My question was actually whether it was possible to get the Mac to offer this as a protocol.
