It always came back saying there where no bluetooth devices around.
Interestingly if I then ran ControlFreak (bluetooth remote control for 
Winamp) it would connect to the HyperTerm that was still running.

So I am at a bit of a loss as to why the bt_discover call never found
the host

Also normal sync type operations where working fine (as in install apps

I will try again on the discover but connecting to the host directly is
enough for me at the moment.
