REQ: Bluetooth Audio Receiver

Post by Starlight5 » Wed Oct 05, 2016 2:36 pm

Please-please-please consider adding this feature, with both RPi3 internal Bluetooth and USB dongles in mind.

I found a solution to described problem, courtesy of davidedg & Douglas6.

The results can be achieved by following this guide with a slight change:

# Load Bluetooth discover module in SYSTEM MODE:
############################################################################
cat <<EOF >> /etc/pulse/system.pa
#
### Bluetooth Support
.ifexists module-bluetooth-discover.so
load-module module-bluetooth-discover
.endif
load-module module-bluetooth-policy
EOF
############################################################################

In order to connect automatically, turn discoverable on in bluetoothctl.

Please consider including Bluetooth Audio Receiver option in future releases of Dietpi!

Yeah this would be neat.

There's also a good (but perhaps slightly dated) tutorial for headless Pulse configuration as well as Bluetooth and DLNA configs here: https://rootprompt.apatsch.net/2013/02/ ... ulseaudio/

Definitely would like to see simple Bluetooth Audio and DLNA renderers included with DP.

I've tried a few tutorials found on the internet, but none worked for me. I think they are too old, and since most are written for raspbian wheezy, there are a lot of steps that are not valid anymore.

Someone there want to make a one-click-app?

Don't have the skills to make such an app. I do have the hardware and desire to use one. ;)
