    Hey guys.

    I just bought the Bose SoundLink Mini (which BTW is fantastic)

    I paired it with my late 2012 iMac 21.5" and experiences a sound delay of 0.5 to 0.75 seconds. It's extremely annoying when gaming or watching movies.

    When paired to my iPhone or iPad the delay is much much less. Something like 150 ms (is that normal? I read someone saying that BT is down to about 50 ms?)

    I haven't had any problems at all with my BT keyboard or magic mouse

    Anyone having the same problem? Or even better - a solution?

    Just watch films with a decent player, and adjust for the delay in the setup

    Care to elaborate about "adjust for the delay"? Also, what's that download...

    Yeah i use VLC already and have adjusted so far - but that shouldn't really be necessary. Anyway, it fixes with movie problem. But that gaming.. :(

    Did you find a way to make it work. I have been using my bluetooth headset for music only but now watching video on my iPad using them and the sound is off-sync to the video.
