Hi, welcome to TF. Is your first name Ian? Sorry though, I don't think I can help you with those questions.

bluetooth
advantage - wireless
disadvantage - short range, not secure

infrared
advantage - ...
disadvantage - must be in line of sight to communicate cus you're shooting an infrared beam between the two ports. I've had so much trouble trying to get infrared to work, but that was 8 or so years ago

Same with me Not a very common name out here though, I am sure it's more common in the UK.
