Since updating to ubuntu 14.04, every time my Bluetooth device goes idle or I turn it off then back on, it defaults to the Telephony setting and I cannot get it to default to a2dp.
I have searched and only found a couple possible solutions such as
Bluetooth speaker: preferred mode “High fidelity playback” (A2DP) is not getting saved
but these haven't worked for me. When I use the
Disable=Headset as suggested in that post, it works temporarily but after a while, if my device disconnects it will then not reconnect as an audio device.
I'm using Bose Soundlink headphones and my
/etc/bluetooth/audio.conf file is as follows:
# Configuration file for the audio service # This section contains options which are not specific to any # particular interface [General] # Switch to master role for incoming connections (defaults to true) #Master=true # If we want to disable support for specific services # Defaults to supporting all implemented services #Disable=Gateway,Source,Socket # SCO routing. Either PCM or HCI (in which case audio is routed to/from ALSA) # Defaults to HCI #SCORouting=PCM # Automatically connect both A2DP and HFP/HSP profiles for incoming # connections. Some headsets that support both profiles will only connect the # other one automatically so the default setting of true is usually a good # idea. AutoConnect=true # Headset interface specific options (i.e. options which affect how the audio # service interacts with remote headset devices) [Headset] # Set to true to support HFP, false means only HSP is supported # Defaults to true HFP=false HSP=false # Maximum number of connected HSP/HFP devices per adapter. Defaults to 1 MaxConnected=0 # Set to true to enable use of fast connectable mode (faster page scanning) # for HFP when incoming call starts. Default settings are restored after # call is answered or rejected. Page scan interval is much shorter and page # scan type changed to interlaced. Such allows faster connection initiated # by a headset. FastConnectable=false # Just an example of potential config options for the other interfaces #[A2DP] #SBCSources=1 #MPEG12Sources=0
