RasPlex as bluetooth A2DP client

dymekdymek Posts: 4Members ✭✭

Hi all,

Recently I've buyed Pi 3 to replace my Pi 1 B model. Mostly because of built in bluetooth. Rasplex has built in pulseaudio - when I connect my phone to it - it recognizes RasPlex like my BT Car audio - and send music via BT. Unfortunately I don't have sound from HDMI or analogue output from raspberry. I am using 1.6.2 build, on 1.0.3 it was the same situation.

    Presumably you have selected Pulseaudio as Audio Output?

    If so you need to change it back to HDMI or Analogue to get sound output from those connections.

    Incidentally, 1.0.3 didn't support BT audio, so you couldn't have BT audio in that version.

    I am currently at 1.6.2 - Pi is connected to Denon AVR-2113 so output is HDMI passthrough. I have sound from movies etc, everything played from Pi, but no sound from connected phone via BT

    BT is one way, RPi->BT audio device, it will not allow you to play from BT device ->RPi.

    So why phone recognize RasPlex as A2DP client like BT headphones or car audio?

    Because that's the Bluetooth drivers and connection software doing that, it makes a connection, there is no audio functionality to support audio from a BT device to the RPi, as I stated previously

    @NedtheNerd : is it possible to add an bluetooth usb stick and configure LibreElec + OpenPHT as a BT receiver?
