    Hey all,

    Long story short, I'd been using an old pair of Sony wireless headphones plugged into the 3.5mm jack on my Raspberry Pi 3 (running libre 8.2.5). I was using the option in Kodi to output audio to HDMI and the 3.5mm jack.

    My headphones recently died and now I'm looking for replacements but I'm noticing Bluetooth are way more prevalent than the old wireless cans and a base station.

    Can someone please confirm whether I'll be able to output to HDMI and Bluetooth concurrently?

    I did a quick search but most are toggling between the two, not using them at the same time. For my situation I need to have them both going at the same time!


    Hey awiouy, i think I'll give up and just buy another set of WiFi headphones. Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately it just doesn't work. Cheers


    All good, appreciate the help! To be honest I kind of expected I was doing something obviously wrong and someone else would chime in.

    Libreelec (official) 8.2.5

    RPi2.arm (pi is a RPi 3 model B v 1.2, if that matters)

    Unfortunately I have neither an iOS device or Spotify premium, but believe I can sign up for a 30 day Spotify premium trial if that helps. Thanks

    I've tried to get this running a few times, not sure what the issue is, this is the error thrown after a fresh install and only youtube addon and snapserver installed:

    I do note in the instructions, there should be a "pulse: snapserver" option in system->audio, I'm not seeing this. My only pulse option is "pulse: default bluetooth". After a reboot this is what I've been selecting, once selected there's a "pulse: null" option that appears.

    Hi again :)

    Unfortunately I've hit a snag. I installed snapserver, rebooted, selected pulse:default in system settings. The sound on the HDMI is gone, but worse still nothing streams. If I select HDMI in system settings and reboot everything works again. With pulse selected the buffering wheel appears and gets stuck on 100%

    Hi all,

    I'm hearing impaired and have been using wireless headphones on my pi3. Unfortunately they broke and I had an ideal/brainfart wondering if it's possible to stream the audio from kodi to my android phone. I'd like to keep the original HDMI output, so my wife can still hear it.

    I know it's probably a long shot, but all help appreciated regardless.
