Hi! After updating to bluez5 my bluetooth headset (Philips SBH9000) doesn't work any more... anybody here with different devices experience similar problems? Is this a regression, or did some behavior change that needs a different configuration? My ~/.asoundrc config is

Code:
pcm.softvol
{
        type softvol
        slave.pcm "default:CARD=0"
        slave
        {
                pcm "bluetooth"
        }

        control
        {
                name "SoftMaster"
                card 0
        }

        hint
        {
                show on
                description "BlueTooth Headset"
        }
}

pcm.bluetooth
{
        type bluetooth
        device 00:1E:7C:02:14:53
        profile "auto"
}

pcm.!default {
    type plug
        slave {
                pcm bluetooth
        }
}

ctl.!default {
   type bluetooth
   device 00:1E:7C:02:14:53
}

Not sure alsalibs has gained support bluez5 yet, and bluez5 only support A2DP, not HFP, so I guess it is best to stay with bluez4 at this moment.

I've found an already existing bug entry here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499908
Seems for headset usage with bluez5, one has to use pulseaudio. Blerch. So bluez-4 it is...
