    hi gang,

    I've got a Playbook LTE. After the recent update to, i have a problem where i can't use Bluetooth and Wifi at the same time. If i do, the audio through bluetooth skips in and out horribly. It's unlistenable. I have tried two different BT headphones and a BT speaker. all with the same result. if i play music stored on the playbook with wifi off, it's fine, but as soon as i turn wifi on, it gets all jittery again.

    needless to say, this makes streaming radio to my BT headphones impossible.

    anyone else have this problem? anyone have any suggestions on a fix?

    (this feels like the olden days of Win95 where there was an IRQ conflict and when two devices tried to work - like network card and audio card - the PC would crash)

    Are you using your Wifi in the 2.4 GHz range or the 5 GHz range? I had a similar problem and switching to 5 GHz cured it.

    Just updated to .1526 two days ago. No issues so far with wifi/bluetooth. Streaming sky fm and listening to it over my bluetooth soundbar... While typing this as well.
