Bluetooth headset and pairing between two different coreelec boxes

I have a pair of bluetooth earbuds that I use for watching when I don’t want to disturb the rest of the family - either upstairs or downstairs.

The upstairs TV room is directly above the one downstairs.

If I pair the ear buds downstairs and then go upstairs (even if I put them in the case), they are still paired with the downstairs box (or vice versa) and I can’t force pair them upstairs.

Short of disabling BT on one box when I move to a different room or blanking the earbuds memory, is there a way to let me force pair from CE when I’m still connected to another device?



Buy BT headphones with multible connection support. Like my PLT Focus can pair two devices in same time. The headphones automatic switch to the active source.

Well, I could also buy multiple BT headphones. Since both devices are in range currently, both would be considered active.

Is there a way to accomplish what I want with the BT hardware I already have?


No, there is no way. You can somehow program a remote button to perform a BT disconnect but then I guess you need to connect it manually again.

Thanks; guess I’ll have to disconnect after each use if I’m moving the ear buds around.
