To set up the BTD-400 on macOS (Intel and M1), the following steps will need to be done:
- Unplug the BTD-400 from the Mac.
- Enable the internal Bluetooth adapter on your computer if your computer has a built-in Bluetooth adapter.
- Delete any existing pairings that exist on your previous adapter. You can do this under your Bluetooth settings.
- Click on Go→Utilities→Terminal to open a Terminal window; we need to have the Mac see the external adapter
- Run the following command
sudo nvram bluetoothHostControllerSwitchBehavior=always. Type in your Mac password and hit enter. Close the terminal window.
To have the Mac use the built-in adapter again, open the terminal and type in the command
sudo nvram -d bluetoothHostControllerSwitchBehavior. Type in your Mac password and hit Enter. Close the terminal window
- To have the Mac use the built-in adapter again, open the terminal and type in the command
- Power off the Mac.
- Plug the BTD-400 adapter into your Mac, then power it on. The BTD-400 will not show up in the list of Bluetooth devices; it takes over from the built-in adapter.
- Put your Bluetooth device into pairing mode and pair it to your computer using the Mac’s Bluetooth settings.
