    I have the k1 tablet. I also have a xp system with a bluetooth dongle.
    What i would like to b able to do, is play music, etc from the tablet onto the xp system.
    Speakers are much better.

    I hzve been able to pair the two, but that is as far as seem to be able to go.

    Do anyone know how this can be done.

    Did some searching, and found that there really is not much for the windows part.
    Looked on ebay and found a bluetooth receiver that will plug into the micr plug.
    Can be onto any device that also has a input plug.

    Reading about these receivers, some can have a second or two delay.
    The first program i tried, there was a two second delay.
    The second program, there was just afraction delay.

    So, you can use the bluetooth to commuicate to a pc to play songs etc. on their speakers.

    Why wouldn't you use wifi for this? You could establish a bluetooth network connection with your PC but that would have some limitations. Seems to me a wifi link would be much better.
    There are a number of streaming solutions for Android from PC to tablet and a similar strategy could be used for tablet to PC, but you also might find it easier to simply let your tablet control your PC and there are a number of android apps to do that. Some of them are commercial but VLC is less than a dollar as I recall
