  • Configure USB Bluetooth device as player in Vortexbox

    I've been a user of Vortexbox for a few years now and I'm still loving it. My current set up has been updated to 2.5 and is running perfectly with optical out from the dedicated Vortexbox server (on silent PC) to a Quad Vena amp, with networked squeezebox receivers elsewhere in the house. I would now like establish if its possible to configure a USB Bluetooth device attached to my Vortexbox server as a player I could then connect to with Bluetooth headphones. I've managed to stumble through installation and updating Vortexbox over the years with the help of user guides and posts here on other forums and I'm good at reading instructions however my own research into Bluetooth players has given me a sore head and no real answers. Any help pitched at an appropriately low tech level would be appreciated.
