Maybe that would help with my BT audio sync issues.

Hi,

Not sure.?
I'm not sure how this fits with Rob's instructions.?
I can only assume..?? (sometimes a bad idea :) )
If starting from scratch with Broadcom based device for a clean start:
1. Install the drivers per the link
2. Make sure the Bluetooth "Blueman" applet is set to Auto-start in the Application Auto-start
3. Follow Rob's instructions
4. re-boot.??
5. Plug in Bluetooth adapter

???... possibly

Just an update...
I purchase one of the Plugable Bluetooth 4.0 adapters.(Broadcom)
I followed the instruction I posted above to get the driver, and then followed Rob's instructions.
All worked perfectly, Headset and Mic work perfectly for Media playback & SKYPE

Hello!

I don't know, but I have a Broadcom-based BT dongle to play with. Therefore, we'll check that out - because I sure would like to be able to use the Broadcom adapter for both Windows AND Linux!

Bit old I know... re: Broadcom Drivers
I have been looking at various Bluetooth devices.
I came across this, Broadcom Linux Driver:

Maybe of use.?

Hello!

Hi Rob,

Many thanks.. Glad it was of use.
It's still working fine on my Laptop.
I'm actually thinking of get a 2nd one for my PC.
The Headphones allows for 2 connections.

Rob, I've added a new section to the Help Manual. Does this look right for generic instructions?: (note the path of the config file)

There is also this - https://vilimpoc.org/blog/2016/04/30/ubuntu-16-04-bluetooth-speakers/

as well as a number of other 'fixes'. Can someone please confirm what works in 3.x?
