Bluetooth headset Mythbuntu 16.04

Post by mythbuntubox » Thu Jun 14, 2018 4:18 pm

It seems that the method for getting a Bluetooth headset to work under MythTV's frontend I described here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=814&p=3898&hilit=bl ... dset#p3898

is no longer viable, as bluez apparently does not support ALSA anymore.

Does anyone have alternative setup suggestions or a workaround for this? Is it maybe possible to use ALSA:pulse or PulseAudio:default in the MythTV settings for this somehow?

The Bluetooth headset works (although not in high definition yet) in things like VLC using bluez.

I personally can't get it installed without errors using the instructions provided under the link below, but if someone else with more "build from source" experience can give it a go on Mythbuntu 16.04 or later and get it installed properly and report back, I would appreciate it:
