I cannot find the "bluetooth" device in also. c0 is the master, c1 is
"BT Headset" but that is not the same device:
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$ aplay -D "BT Headset" -f S16_LE
ALSA lib pcm.c:2145:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM BT Headset
aplay: main:546: audio open error: No such file or directory
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$

Also, in Skype, I can send sound to the headset over the device
"bluetooth" but not the device "BT Headset".
