_Audio Stuttering / Bluetooth-WiFi conflict?_
thank you for the clear and simple Tutorial! I followed it up to the end of step 2 so far, so I'm being able to test the functionality. I can connect my device(s) and play audio via the Pi's output.
I'm getting a nice stereo sound, but the audio stutters irregularly
. It clearly feels like a problem conerning the bluetooth transmission.
I'm even surprised nobody here brought this up so far, since stuttering audio seems to be a broad problem people get using the RPi as a bluetooth sink.
It seems, that for most people, the problem is that Bluetooth and Wifi usage conflict and cause disturbance
. This problem is well documented on the RPi3 and I guess the RPi Zero W that Wifi and Bluetooth. See, for example, here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/1402
Obviously, I thought this might be the deal for me as well - so I deactivated Wifi temporarily using "sudo ifconfig wlan0 down" and reconnect to my bluetooth device to test again. Unfortunately disabling WiFi did not help
and now I'm confused what to try next.
I will try an external bluetooth dongle, but I'd actually like to use the onboard chip, since I don't intend to use wifi + bluetooth at the same time (although I want to use them both, just not simultaneously) - thus I think it should be possible without a dongle.
But now, I can't find any hint, what to try, since disabling WiFi seems to do the trick for almost everyone, so I don't find other proposals.
Do you have any other idea, how I can proceed (using onboard Bluetooth), or how I can further test the issue?
Also, do you think using BlueALSA instead of Pulseaudio might change anything?
I'm using the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2, running the latest Raspbian Buster lite.
Thanks for your help!
