Connecting bluetooth to TV

Can I add bluetooth to my Bravia TV that will connect to my bluetooth Bose speakers?

Hi jodabee!

 

Unfortunately you cannot add bluetooth to your TV.

This wouldn't work? I don't see why it wouldn't but I wanted to make sure before I bought it or something like it.

 

Thanks so much for looking into this.

Re: Connecting bluetooth to TV

Absolutely. I just did it and it works amazingly well. I bought this: Miccus BluBridge home- Long Range Bluetooth Wireless Music Transmitter or Receiver
by Miccus, Inc.
Link: http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00713RSE0

It connects to the headphone out jack of the Bravia, and you set that jack to be an Audio Out instead of Headphone Out (you do that in the Sony TV's Settings menu)

Re: Connecting bluetooth to TV

That looks like a possible solution to the configuration problem we're facing:  We want to install two sets of Bluetooth headphones, so that audio volume from the Sony Bravia can be indpendently varied.

 

I plan to install a bluetooth transmitter (it will allow installation via either the Audio Out port on the TV, or via the Optical Out.) that provides connection to two bluettoth devices.

 

Here's my dilemma:  Sometimes we will want to listen to the TV through its own speakers, and not use the headphones.  Will I have to manually disconnect the transmitter from the Audio OOut to do this?  Or would breaking the headphone audio connection be enough to unmute the TV's speakers?

Re: Connecting bluetooth to TV

Hello, can I do the same for my blue ray home theatre. I want to buy new set of Bluetooth speaker for my room as an addition to the wired speaker that came with the home theatre.

Re: Connecting bluetooth to TV

I bdoing what we wanted to do.

ought a Bluetooth gizmo that attaches to the audio out from the Uverse receiver.  WHn we want to use the headphones, we manually turn on BT, then turn on and pair the headphones.  We have to mute the TV using its native Mute (on the remote).

 

It's not the smoothest process in the world, but we end up doing what we wanted to do.

Re: Connecting bluetooth to TV

Note that most of the 2017 Sony TV models:  X940E, X930E, X900E, X850E, and A1E have added bluetooth audio functionality in the android 7.x update.   For other models connecting the line out to a bluetooth transmitter should still work nicely.
