No song details displaying on car stereo when connected via Bluetooth Song Xperia 10 III

Ah ok its a bit like vim then.

Ok so I tried all this and still not showing the metadata on the car stereo.

However one thing I noticed was it was connecting then disconnecting so there isn’t a stable connection with these settings.

So I can only presume that the mpris… is failing constantly and then now restarting every 5 seconds but that is causing a problem with the bluetooth connection to the phone where it was stable and never disconnected prior to adding these changes.

Also it affected my connection to my android mobile so had to delete both phones and re-pair just the android mobile for now.

Maybe the next update will resolve these issues?

The next update only can fix your specific problems if you reproduce the issue again, then run journalctl --user -u mpris-proxy & journalctl --user -u pulseaudio, copy & paste those logs into the bug report here. Let’s hope there is something useful in those logs. Maybe also open 2 seperate ones for audio & metadata issues.

Here is the information. I unpaired my and repaired this.Sony X10III.

Incidentally with these recent changes I can now pair from the UI as I am able to enter.the PIN code that is required.

Here are the results:

For some odd reason I can see all song, artist, etc. information over Bluetooth but only when using MusicExplorer, none at all with the stock media player. Weird.

@j_sarkari Can you try & maybe update your bug report. I’m not sure if the stock media player has mpris support or is restricted by the harbour, too.

How do i do that.

I remember on stock android when this was an issue i had a workaround, in android developer options and bluetooth AVRCP version is 1.4 as the default. If you switch to 1.5 or 1.6 then restart that usually fixed the metadata issue.

So i tried that yeaterday to 1.5 but it didnt fix the problem here in Sailfish.

I have checked all the journals and they all say No journal files found.

[root@Xperia10III defaultuser]# journalctl --user -u mpris-proxy & journalctl --user -u puls
No journal files were found.No journal files were found.

– No entries –

I also tried>

[root@Xperia10III defaultuser]# journalctl --since β€œ2022-12-28 16:00:00” --until "2022-12-

29 12:00:00" --user
No journal files were found.
– No entries –

In this period I have used the phone and tested the issues.

Is there something prior you need to do to initiate the journalctl to record what is happening.

I also tested the time period journalctl in fedora on my laptop and it shows lots of entries so there is something odd on my device.

I also tried journactl -k and this is showing entries so its just the above issues that is isn’t showing.

I have since checked what is active>

I am currently playing a song to test but with bluetooth on but not connected to the car stereo.

Not sure why the audio and metadata are not active

So tried restarting>

[root@Xperia10III defaultuser]# systemctl restart --user audio
Failed to restart audio.service: Unit audio.service not found.

[root@Xperia10III defaultuser]# systemctl restart --user metadata
