Bluetooth Out to Windows 10 PC


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm trying to connect my Windows 10 PC as an audio output device for my LG TV (43UM7100PLB, software v. 05.00.15). I know that Windows 10 now supports Bluetooth audio sink mode in order to act as an audio receiver, but my TV just won't pair with it. Windows sees the TV, but it cannot pair with it, just says "Try connecting your device again" (screenshot attached). When I use the WebOS Sound Out > Bluetooth and search for a device, nothing shows up even though my PC is discoverable.

If I try the Bluetooth Audio Playback feature of the TV from the Home Dashboard, I can pair the computer with TV and am able to stream audio from the PC to TV, so I'm beginning to suspect the TV is rejecting the PC for some reason.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello  and thanks for your reply.

Other devices connect fine, like my Logitech Wireless Headset H-800. It only refuses to see the PC and only in audio sink mode. The TV will connect with the PC the other way around without issues, to receive audio or video via Bluetooth. This leads me to the conclusion that this is intentional, some kind of override in WebOS customisation. If anyone knows of a way to disable this silly lock, I'd be very grateful.

To explain: I need my PC as the audio receiver for my TV in order to mix the sound from the TV with the sound from my PC into my wired headset, thus using my PC as a makeshift mixer. This is completely possible with mobile phones, a record player, and a few other Bluetooth devices I tried it with.

      I've bought OLED55CX3LA and have screenshare errors ever since. 
      I'm using Dell machine with Windows 10 onboard.
      Almost every time I try to connect using "connect with remote screen" windows option, I get the pop up that
      only with cancel button.

      Sometimes there is approval button but mostly I have only "cancel" option. 
      Have this error on OLED55CX3LA and one older model. Same behavior. 

      Mobile screen sharing working perfectly fine.

      How to fix it?
      I've cleared the connection history but without any success.
      Not sure if I should put it on warranty or if there is some simple fix?

      I have tried to use my wireless headphones in conjunction with my external speakers so I can hear the sound at a different level to others.
      I can get it to work but not properly because my soundbar is connected via HDMI simplink (Sonos Beam).
      When I turn simplink off the Bluetooth speakers work great but no sound from TV Speakers or soundbar even if I pick multiple speakers the sound only comes out of the headphones.
      Is there anyway around this?

      Hi, I'd like to disable the bluetooth on my G2 and was wondering if this was possible without having to disconnect the bluetooth module in the back?

      I have an LG 43UR80006LJ TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth iphone earpods headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time? Thx

      55UJ651V After a few minutes, the Bluetooth clicks and disconnects. Sometimes it then re-starts the tv into the on mode, with nothing selected. It will not find the bluetooth device again. Unless, I try a different Blutooth device and then it does the same thing all over again. Is there any answer to this - or does the module need replacing. There seems to be a lot of discussion online regarding Bluetooth issues with LG. I have hearing issues and must use headphones! This is impossible!
