Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506879
Switching Headset from HSP to A2DP Fails
Last modified: 2009-09-16 09:52:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Bluetooth headset will not switch to A2DP mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 4.37
Release : 2.fc11
Occurred every time until I switched the telephone duplex profile from HSP to HFP.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using bluetooth-applet, pair Plantronics Voyager 855 headset with a computer running Fedora 11.
2. In pavucontrol, change the configuration from Telephony Duplex to High Fidelity Playback.
No change occurs. "module-bluetooth-device.c: A2DP is not connected, refused to switch profile" is written to /var/log/messages.
I expected my headset to provide stereo audio instead of mono.
I found a workaround at https://tango.0pointer.de/pipermail/pulseaudio-discuss/2009-April/003698.html. Creating /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf with the contents
then restarting bluetooth and connecting the headset provided the expected behaviour.
HFP=true is the default in newer versions of bluez, we'll need to upgrade at some point...
was fixed in 4.38, and we ship 4.42 in F11, so closing.
Please reopen if this didn't fix the bug for you.
