Short update on my ES8000:
Yesterday I received my Philips BT 100 external speaker and this is perfectly pearing and working :)

Now I need to try also on the F8000 but I'm confident it will work as well.

Is there anybody who can confirm a BT headset that is tested and working on our TV ?
I would like to buy one ;)

First of all thanks for all the work!
My F6770 fails to recognize my Bose Soundlink Mini II but does recognize my Plantronics BackBeat Fit and Sony SBH20. Unfortunately when trying to pair them it says "Can not connect to the XXX Check whether the device is turned on". The headphones themselves seem to think they are connected. The Plantronics device says it is connected until I turn off the tv. Then it says "connection lost" or something to the same effect.
However both fail to output any sound.

Apart from that I tried to alter an init script of some other lib to start Unfortunately I did not succeed. I would like to load it on startup so that I can test any BT-Device that comes my way as easily as possible. Could anyone provide an init script please?

I did lik that:

Code: Select all

. /dtv/SGO.env

samyGOso -A -B -l /opt/privateer/usr/bin/bt/
Of course you have to select your installation path and adapt the script accordingly.

This is working on my ES8000 even if I have to make the coupling process at any reboot because otherwise it does not connect automatically to headset.
The headset menu says connected but it's not and the only chance I have is "exit".
Every time I need to cancel the coupling and repeate coupling process.
After that it works properly till next TV reboot:
- Sound of TV is switched OFF and only BT is heard with good quality (this is good).
- There is no control of BT volume from remote.
All in all at the and it is anyhow usable ;) .

On my F8000 the situation is different (same init script by the way).
Coupling starts and a BIP is heard from the BT headset but the process ends with a warning the there is no comunication with BT device.
No sound can be heard from headset.

Thank you miazza. Turns out I had a typo in the path. The init script works now. Bt sound unfortunately does not yet.

Did anybody actually get audio output on F-series? If so which headphones/ speakers did you use?
(I've read through the thread but as far as I can tell there was no positive feedback from F-series owners, was there?)
