[Q] Bluetooth A2DP issue with Car Stereo
Ok, so here's the deal. I have a rooted T-mo G3 (D851) on a stock rom, out of the box it's been awesome to use with my Pioneer AVH-X2600BT head unit in my scooby. I was messing around with themes a short while ago and then the bluetooth stopped working intermittently. From what I can tell the mix-rate of the A2DP stream changes from 44k to 3hz and all you hear are beeps at multiple amplitudes. The beeps are playing out of the buffer in the head unit until it empties then it resets the connection to the phone. It still plays out these beeps until it's empty even if I disconnect the phone from the head unit.
I don't have this problem with two other iPhones. And previous to my screwing around, it'd work flawlessly since a bought it (launch day.)
Could I have screwed up a mixrate setting someplace? I do have a custom mixer xml for boosting headphone port and speaker audio but I never touched the settings for the bluetooth driver.
This behavior is intermittent and it matters very little what content I'm playing through it. I do notice that when this is happening, no metadata or control is capable through AVRCP either. (i.e. Pandora app can't connect to the phone, no album art, etc)
Sometimes it'll stop doing it and play normally for the rest of the session (drive) after a few minutes and everything is normal. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all and sometimes I can't get it work normally at all.
Here's a video showing the behavior:
