    FWIW this driver ruined use of Raspberry Pi 3 as Bluetooth Audio Receiver for me, had to uninstall it completely.

    Were you running windows 8 or 10 on it?

    Curious why, but also curious if any Pi machine would work with APT-X since APT-X is a certain codec and might need special conditions to be met before being available for usage

    @Georgel I was running Windows 10 Anniversary. It was as if the codec was jumping from one to another all the time - very choppy playback, totally unusable. Without the driver, I have stable A2DP-SBC connection; I would obviously prefer A2DP-MP3 without conversion, no idea how to force that. Bluetooth seems such an undocumented mess...

    Woah

    Do you have either of the Intel modules installed, or you ran it to a Pi BT module?

    I connected Intel 7260AC Bluetooth inside the notebook to built-in RPi3 Bluetooth module; the RPi was set up accordingly. Here's the guide.

    I also have a notebook with 8260... Maybe I'll give it a try, too.

    What BT does it have integrated?

    Edit: Doesn't Pi 3 have a Broadcom BT?

    BCM = Broadcom
    Did you install the Intel aptX driver on a system with a Broadcom Bluetooth?

    Why?
