Jambox does now always install once paired.


The Jawbone Big Jambox is a bluetooth audio device that allows one to stream audio from a host server perhaps you know of it.

It does pair with Windows 8 but does not always seem to install such that the audio stream is switched to the Jambox. Recall the Jambox does pair with the Windows 8 machine.

Please advise.
