OSMC Alpha4 with Bluetooth BLE4


Trying to pair my OSMC with Bose Soundlink Mini - so that the audio from OSMC
is played over bluetooth on my Bose speaker.

I’m using ModmyPi “Super fast USB to Bluetooth Dongle V4.0”
and this instructable:

Can’t for the life-of-me get Bluetooth to work in OSMC Alpha4.

My question:
Is Bluetooth disabled, or restricted in OSMC Alpha4? or just not working.
Spent a few hours trying all kinds of things, but no joy.

Probably tonight I will revert to Raspbmc and see if that works.

Best regards,

Ok, I’ve given up trying to get Bluetooth audio output.
(after many hours of trial and error)

Tried with OSMC A4 and Raspbmc.
Was nearly going to try OpenElec … but it seems that did work before,
but not anymore.
Best I could do was Trust and Pair using Blueman …but just couldn’t Connect to send audio.

So, I’ve ordered this instead:

It’s only slightly more expensive than the USB BLE4 dongle, which I will return for a refund.

Probably it’s a simpler solution anyway (i.e. less things to go wrong).

Best regards,
