    LDAC Support?

    Does piCorePlayer Bluetooth support Sony's LDAC codec? It would be great to connect my Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones via LDAC to my Raspberry Pi 4 running piCorePlayer. If not is it possible to implement this in the future?


    Thanks.

    It does not currently support LDAC.

    BlueAlsa (The software driving Bluetooth Audio) does support LDAC, however, I do not have any hardware that supports it to do development.

    Hi, and thanks for the effort of this great software!

    I just installed a Pi 3+ with piCorePlayer (latest stable).
    Planned to replace an old Receiver connected to a Samsung AKG VL5 speaker.
    So I wanted to connect the pi using BT, but that seems to be difficult. The player finds the speaker, but is not able to pair.

    I have tried some other BT devices too:
    1) Samsung The Frame TV: Not able to pair
    2) Samsung Galaxy buds: pi does not discover them
    3) Logitech Z600 speakers: All good, plug and play.

    And then the AKG VL5, discovered but fails paring with this message:
    [ INFO ] Attempting to pair [AV] Samsung AKG VL5, CC:6E:A4:E5:F8:6D....
    [ ERROR ] Device failed to pair. Forcing device removal.....

    BT log (Is there a way to see a log of the pairing attempt?):

    Thanks!

    You can try to do it from an ssh session. Take a look at this post.

    I've redone the pairing routine for the next release. Hope that solves some of these odd problems. But manual should always work too.

    Bluetooth Blues - sorted

    My Rpi4 runs the latest versions of pCp and LMS (as at 30.10.20), and works fine over my main system and speakers, but not with my BT headphones (B&W PX), where I experienced lots of sound dropouts, and periods where it would not even connect to the Rpi4/pCp (would not pair, or would not put a name into 'Player Name', or would not show up in LMS).
    After many hours trying a lot of the potential solutions on this site, including using ssh and the Bluetoothctl functions, it was a combination of 2 things that resolved the issues.
    One is frequently referred to here ľ get a new SDcard! This was done first, and sorted the problems with getting and maintaining any BT connection at all. I do not know why this should be the case but am convinced that it was a major factor, and as it was done prior to the change below, I do not think they were directly related. I should also say that I wrote a clone of the original card to the new one ľ not a wholly new download and installation.
    I now had faith in the basic BT configuration but was still suffering sound dropouts, so my 2nd step was to move the BT source (the Rpi4) further into the room (still about 2.5 metres away) and point it's BT-chip end towards my listening position. Success! I have had no dropouts over the last few hours of headphone use, and the 'phones have re-connected easily to the Rpi4 after short periods of non-use. I will experiment further to try and identify the cause of the dropouts, partly because I can't leave the Rpi4 where it is forever.
    Thank you to all the other contributors to this forum, because without this support I would probably have given up!

    Bluetooth and WiFi share the same frequencies. The RPi folks have tried to get Broadcom to make them work together. But not much luck over the years. If you can move your WiFi to 5GHz frequencies you will have much better results.

    Hi,

    I use Squeezelite with my sound bar shared with my TV.
    When I start my TV, bluetooth is disconnected from Squeezelite... Is there a way to connect my sound bar on each Squeezelite start (from LMS) ?

    Thx.
