Want To Stream Audio From TV to Android Device
Galaxy Note N7000, does WiFi and BlueTooth.
Vizio TV, does WiFi and hard-wired Ethernet. Has a "BlueTooth" option on the setup menu, but it's greyed out so I'm guessing on this model. Plugging a BlueTooth USB stick into one of it's USB ports, of course, does nothing.
Googling turns up a host of ways to stream TV from Android to TV and vice-versa...
But I'm looking for the functional equivalent of wireless headphones.
I'm guessing it will involve buying some hardware that plugs in to the TV's Audio Out jack and then either passes the stream to the Ethernet network via WiFi or the cable or provides the stream via Bluetooth.
I'm also guessing there will have to be a companion app installed on the Android device.
Anybody seen such a thing?
