Bluetooth and PS3 issues

It appears that there may be some issues using the new Bluetooth wireless controllers with the PS3 if you have other Bluetooth devices.

I've never had any issues with our Wii that also uses bluetooth for it's wiimotes.

It might also be the logitech speakers having blueooth issues, or it could be the PS3, who can tell?

Given that the speakers appeared to interfere with both the Bluetooth and the WiFi, and all of them use 2.4GHz technology, I think a conclusion might be reached.

Logitech claim that their system uses two independant channels to send data to each rear speaker. Logitech also claim that they use adaptive frequency hopping. My understanding is that the speakers have a list of 38 channels that they can hop to if they hit interference.

Given that Bluetooth hops across 70 channels at a rate of 1600 hops a second, I'd guess that the Logitech speakers are being forced to hop through all their channels to try and maintain a clear connection. In the process, they're hopping onto active Bluetooth and WiFi connections and causing disruption.

Interestingly, TrustedReviews found issues with the speakers interfering with WiFi connections, forcing an 802.11g network down to a speed of 2Mbit/sec.
