I have a LG Sound Bar that allows audio playback using Bluetooth.

I'd like to play audio from XBMC on raspbmc over the Sound Bar.

At the same time, Id still like the audio from HDMI to still playback normally over the TV. The goal being that the same audio source would play in two different rooms wireless.

Could this be done?

Thanks Alex

  • Welcome to SE, please see raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/faq#signatures and meta.stackexchange.com/a/3021/180072 I think you can route audio to two places using ALSA. Have you made the sound bar and/or HDMI work separately yet?

  • @XTL HDMI is ok, but Ive not got a USB bluetooth dongle yet for RPi to test with. I wondered if it might be possible in order to justify the purchase. I;ll check out ALSA

  • BT dongles are pretty affordable and a potentially useful thing to have. I've never tested audio over BT/HDMI. Have a look at alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Asoundrc for inspiration in configuring ALSA:
