Pi Zero W WiFi + Bluetooth interference?

Tue Feb 28, 2017 3:09 pm

I won't likely get my hands on one of these soon, so I'd be interested to hear if the Zero W suffers from the same WiFi + Bluetooth interference problem as the Pi3.

As someone who stuggled for months with bluetooth audio before finally realizing that the wifi/bluetooth conflict was causing that error, I had the exact thoughts. Hopefully there's a fix for that pi3 issue and that the new pi zero is immune to it.
All that aside I'm looking forward to getting one.

What kind of interference are you talking about?

I have a Pi Zero W. I find that when I connect to some headset the sound is stuttering at the beginning then it stabilises but sometime start stuttering later on.

Yeah, that sounds like the same issue that is plaguing the Pi3.

Ah ok. Thanks.

It will save me going crazy trying to find out why :)

I have also noticed that depending on the song the headset is crackling. I think it is basically the audio output saturating when there is too much bass in the music and I can't find out how to reduce the bass level via CLI.
