Bluetooth mouse and bluetooth bandwidth constraints

Recommended Posts

Anyone notice this problem?

I have a surface pro and like the MS sculpt mouse (bluetooth).

Its response is adequate however if I pair my earpiece (elite sliver) all in a sudden the mouse becomes jumpy as if its refresh rate is sliced!

As soon as I unpair my headset the mouse responds much quicker.

To me that's a deal breaker.

Anyone else notice this behavior and is there a way around it?

For now I'm using an arc touch but that takes up the only USB port with its micro receiver!

The bandwith should be sufficient. Most probably interferences!

Is your wifi active?

FYI I had the same problem with my MacBook and the solution was to change the Wifi channel of my router. I had to try a few channels, but finally found one giving less lag to the mouse.

What BT reciever/stack/OS? If it's doing it as soon as you connect it, it sounds like it's possibly reserving the bandwidth that the headset might require.

Audio over bluetooth (HSP/HFP and especially A2DP) takes a lot of bandwidth. You're not crazy, I had the same issue long long ago with my thinkpad using A2DP headphones with my bluetooth mouse. Unfortunately I don't remember if I ever found a fix.
