    TS3 and bluetooth headset profiles

    Hello,
    I have noticed that connecting to a server on teamspeak forces the bluetooth headset profile to switch from A2DP to HSP/HFP, even if teamspeak is set not to use the headset's microphone. This is very annoying as I have to manually switch back to A2DP in order for the audio to actually work. Is there a way to disable this automatic profile switching?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Running TS3 v.3.1.7 on Ubuntu 17.10.

    Without any further research I'd use the PulseAudio Release note for v11 as a starting point:
    The "auto_switch" option of module-bluetooth-policy got a new mode: mode "2" can be used to enable automatic profile switching from A2DP to HSP when a recording stream appears without any role set.
    https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Sof...ser/Bluetooth/

    Why there'd be a recording stream without you having set the capture device, that's another question.
    However, maybe using mode 2 bypasses the issue.

    Hello,
    I accidentally encountered this unsolved thread while looking for the solution of the same problem, so here's the answer.
    As thorwe mentioned it's module-bluetooth-policy fault. You can disable it temporarily by typing:
    Code:
    pactl unload-module module-bluetooth-policy
    If you want to disable it permamently you need to do following (using gedit but you can your prefered text editor):
    Code:
    cp /etc/pulse/default.pa ~/.config/pulse/default.pa
    Code:
    gedit ~/.config/pulse/default.pa
    Comment following line by inserting hash symbol at the beginning of the line:
    Code:
    load-module module-bluetooth-policy
    Restart computer

    Please be aware this module does more than just switching from A2DP to HSP. I recommend reading more about it before disabling.
