Bluetooth Private Listening from the TV to Roku Ultra 4800
I could not find a good post about this.
I see that newer Roku Ultras have Bluetooth Private Listening.
I have one of these Ultra but an older Hisense 4K Roku TV with a HDMI ARC connected soundbar already. They are all connected via HDMI. I was wondering if I can route the TV audio from the local OTA channels to the Ultra 4800 for this bluetooth private listening or not.
If this is not possible, do I need to get one of the Roku Soundbars to do this?
If you want to know what I want to do is I want to put a bluetooth headphones or soundbar elsewhere at the same time having the other soundbar going because I have a family member that is hard of hearing and want to help them hear the TV without turning up the audio on the HDMI ARC soundbar to high.
Re: Bluetooth Private Listening from the TV to Roku Ultra 4800
You definitely can't do it with the Ultra since the TV doesn't pass audio to the Ultra. Maybe someone with a Streambar or Smart Soundbar can answer whether Bluetooth private listening is available from sources other than the Streambar/Soundbar itself. The blog post is about the only source of information I've seen and searching for "Bluetooth private listening" on Roku's "support" page gives nothing relevant.
