Default Replaced TCU for BT Need Coding-FIXED!!!

So I replaced my 10/2003 build 04 530i TCU w/a 10/2007 TCU. I now have the SOS Malfunction but I understand that's fixable. This particular TCU does appear in realoem for my VIN.

I noted when I tried a simple BT scan on my Note 4 that the MAC ADDR appeared but would not connect.

I also noted on the iDrive screen the Signal Strength and another icon ( Pole or a "I" that forms a "T" w antenna or wave or signal indicator at the top???)....I don't know what it means but from googling I see it w/a phone next to it. Are these two indicators a good sign for this TCU (still awaiting programming) ??

Programming: I programmed Aux awhile ago and have since upgraded the Win7 laptop to Win10. I believe I am close since INPA works (both dots!) but I need to work through some NCSExpert errors....I just want to download (read) my car file, edit it and upload it - that's my goal.


So I sorted my LAPTOP ISSUES:
1. (2 OCX files needed copying into sys32 and syswow64) Dirs and registering

Sorted NCSExpert issues:
1. Com Port Latency reverted back to 16 instead of 1

SUCCESFULLY CODED: - Even though "what" to code is all over the map on the forums and I-Net!!
1. Changed fields to "activ" in Mask & TCUM Modules

2. Added +633 to VO (+639 already in list)
Wrote to CAS

Can MAKE and RECEIVE phone calls - CD or FM Stereo properly mutes during calls and music returns after call completes.

What "I" was most interested in DOES NOT work...MUSIC STREAMING instead of AUX Cable!!!

What am I missing???????????????

FYI: SOS Malfunction error CLEARED in the process...I did NOT code it out!!

NO e60 tcu has ability to music stream UNLESS you do a combox retrofit.

only way is to add a bluetooth adapter, i have a video on both coding TCU like you mentioned and also the bluetooth aux audi streaming adapters
