[Q] A2DP Audio Crackle with iSimple Connect (ISHD651)
I just got a new VZW Moto X, (4.2.2) and while trying to stream bluetooth audio to my car stereo via an isimple connect kit (ISHD651), I get a very annoying static/crackling sound, which makes listening unusable. My old phone (HTC Droid Incredible 2) (2.3.7) worked great, with no issue whatsoever. However, the Moto X does work fine with my wife's car stereo (Pioneer DEH-X9500BHS). This seemed very strange, so I did a bit of investigating with a bunch of our devices. The Droid Inc2 (2.3.7), Nexus 7 (4.3), and Wikipad 7 (4.1.1), all worked fine. My Acer A500 (4.0.3?) and the Moto X both exhibited this crackling with my iSimple Connect car kit, but worked fine when streaming to other devices.
Has anyone else seen this problem? Is anyone smarter on bluetooth a2dp that could explain what might be happening here? Are there any other ideas of what I can try?
This is extremely frustrating, as I bought and installed the iSimple kit specifically for this purpose, so I could stream audio and control play/skip from my car stereo, and it was working great with my Incredible 2, but that phone was showing its age.
I've seen some info about other 4.2.x devices having bluetooth audio quality issues, but I wasn't sure if it was the same problem or not.
