Soundlink Mini - Recently unusable. Needs A Firmware Update?
I haven't used my Soundlink Mini much in the last six months, but something has changed and its now unusable when I play music from my Windows 10 laptop via Bluetooth.
When I play music and WiFi is ON, the dropout/interference is massive. It is unlistenable. When I turn the WiFi OFF, the sound is perfect. A pretty major issue.
This behaviour is independent of the file type (MP3, WMA), software (Windows Media Player, Groove and music streamed from websites via several different types of browser) and is not replicated on any other Bluetooth speaker or headphone connected to the same laptop. For example, Apple AirPods play music perfectly with WiFi on. All operating systems, software and drivers are up to date.
This is a new problem. My first instinct in the circumstances would be to search for a firmware update for the Soundlink. It has been confirmed to be on this forum that there has never been a firmware update for this product, so it can't be that - despite the firmware update checking process always hanging (see other topic).
Has anyone else experience this or have suggestions to offer?
Thanks in advance,
