Just recently picked up a SparkFun Purpletooth Jamboree BC127 Development Board
I then upgraded the firmware to the latest provided here Melody v6.1.5.
What i am having trouble with is enabling AVRCP only mode/profile.
I just need to be able to control the music playing on the target device (Android Cell Phone). I do not need A2DP streaming from the cellphone to the BC127.
My application is…the cellphone is connected to a BT speaker and plays audio there. I am trying to also connect the BC127 to the cellphone, BUT only to be able to use it as a remote to control the media functions (Play, pause, track fwd/bck, volume +/-).
When i set only the AVRCP profile, the BC127 doesn’t connect to the cellphone. If i try to add the HID profile, a connection is made, i can see the BC127 connected to the phone, but as an HID device. If i attempt to send a “MUSIC 11 PLAY” over UART, an error 0x0013 is returned. Oddly enough…some of the buttons on the dev board work to control the music functions (Pause, FWD, BCK. Volume, and play do not work).
Can someone help point me in the right direction? I thought just enabling the AVRCP profile would be enough, but it doesn’t seem so.
