Ok so this will probably come across as a rant, but i just don't understand why this is being so difficult. Has anyone successfully paired a bluetooth headset/speakers to their raspberry pi 3 running any of the Kodi distros or just raspbian with kodi to constantly work after reboots and powering off/on headphones?
It feels like you have have to jump thought tons of hoops, i don't understand why this is the case. I have tried every flavor of Kodi for the Pi. The headset won't keep a connection, or never connects, or no audio, sync issues. Most of the time it just doesn't connect or stay connected, fails if i turn my headset off and turn it back on, it won't ever connect again. If by some chance it does connect a reboot will have me starting all over again.
I have followed this guide Here
, and Here
and its always a bust.
I have an laptop monitor from a broken laptop with raspberry pi as my media system, to run off of my MythTV and other online services. its in front of my treadmill to use while running. i can't use a tv because the treadmill is right in front of the wall so when its folded up i get the most space. This
is what i have built. This is just a first time build, my upgrade will be a 1080p display and nicer frame and stained.
I was able to get the bluetooth working a while back, but had terrible sync issues. Realized that the built in wireless was causing the problem. Purchased a USB wireless dongle to address that issue..
So has anyone gotten this to work consistently, is there a distro that works best for this sort of thing? I am using LG HBS730
Headphones, They are about 5 years old, but they have always worked with every device i have used, even tried a newer bluetooth taco speaker and i get the same results.. If new headphones would be better, i will buy them!! END RANT.......
Currently i am on Openelec, as i had the best luck with this in the past, but today no such luck....
..... Well...that feels a little better...
