360 Box - Transmit bluetooth?

Does the new 360 transmit a bluetooth signal for use with headphones, a sound bar, home cinema etc. or is it solely an optical out?

Thanks

Hello

I am afraid there is no Bluetooth audio on the v360 it is only optical out.

There are many adapters you can get which will turn an optical signal into Bluetooth.

Thanks for the reply,

Indeed there are and I am using 1 for my V6.

Was hoping the new tech would remove the need.

Is the 360 by invite only?

Re: 360 Box - Transmit bluetooth?

The 360 HDD box hardware and V6 hardware is pretty identical - which is why the pilot for a the V6 > 360 firmware upgrade works.

The only difference for the current 360 HDD boxes being installed is that they can only run the 360 firmware.

Existing customers can currently upgrade to the 360 boxes as part of Ultimate Oomph and a physical hardware swap.

Options for all other existing customers will be coming next year.
