    Theoretical Question

    If I plug a USB bluetooth adaptor into the USB port on my DTS system, could I then stream music from my iPad? The DTS is DNLA certified.

    Thanks

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    It does depend on the type of Bluetooth adapter, as the iPad has a very limited Bluetooth support and will mostly work with keyboards and headphones. If the usb bluetooth adapter would identify itself as a bluetooth headset, than the iPad would stream music to it, but somehow I doubt that this is the case, so it will most likely not work, at least not on a non-jb iPad.

    I thought as much, but may give it a go.....Don't need it to work, just using old bits of kit I have lying around Before finally consigning them to the bin.....It's a VERY old Bluetooth device anyway!

    Light the blue (no pun intended) touchpaper and stand clear!
