I have the OPN1 and a TV Adapter 3.0. I also have an iPhone.
- The way I mix the TV stream sound and the room sound through the mic is this: I use the Hearing Devices setting on the iPhone. If you’re in the TV Box mode, and triple click the home button on your iPhone, you’ll see 2 volume controls. The top one is for your OPN mics, and the bottom one is for your TV Box 1.
1.a If you want to hear both the TV sound and the room sound: I would leave my Mic Volume at the default level (which is 64% in my case, yours may be different, but you know it’s the default level by the quick triple tone instead of the single tone as you move your volume up and down) so I can hear normal sounds around the room just the same. I would then adjust the TV Box 1 volume to set the appropriate level for the streamed TV sound. Usually in my case, it’s setting the TV Box 1 volume slider all the way down to 1 or 2%, and I can still hear it loud enough, because I set the volume of my TV (well in this case my laptop because it’s where my video feed is from) to maximum. If you find the TV Box slider is at 1%, the Mic slider is at default (64% in my case), and the TV sound is still too loud for your taste, you can turn down the volume on the TV itself that feeds into the TV Adapter 3.0 (in my case, my laptop volume).
1.b If you want to hear only the TV sound and no room sound (like if you have noisy appliances running or people in the room talking you want to tune out): You can turn down the Mic volume slider and turn up the TV Box. In my case I turn up the TV Box 1 volume slider to 100% and if it’s not loud enough for me, I either adjust the Mic slider up until it’s loud enough, and usually the Mic slider is still at a low enough setting that surrounding sound is muted down quite a bit. Again, you can also adjust the TV volume (laptop volume in my case) so I can keep the TV slider at 100% and the Mic slider at minimal and be able to hear the TV sound comfortably loud enough for you.
1.c. I never had to ask my audi to do any kind of special adjustment for this like Abarsanti did. I just vary the Mic slider and the TV Box 1 slider in my iPhone Hearing Devices setting (triple click on the home button), as well as the TV volume that feeds into the TV Adapter 3.0 to get the desired effect for either 1.a or 1.b above.
I also lose connection to one HA on the iPhone app frequently. I heard from a forum member here (gdba, he replied to your thread in the second post) that he just turned off the iPhone Bluetooth then turn it back on and it reconnects the disconnected HA for him. I haven’t had such luck, so my remedy has to be to Forget The Device (option button on the iPhone), reboot the disconnected HA (open/close battery door), then re-pair after it’s been rediscovered by the iPhone again. If I were you I’d tried gdba’s solution before trying mine (because his solution is much faster).
I don’t own 2 TV Adapter 3.0 like you do (gee, I’m jealous :-)), but I would try to pair with one TV adapter, then turn it off when not in use, then pair with the second TV adapter next. Keep both of them turned off when not in use, and only turn one on at a time. There’s a chance that this may solve the issue for you so you won’t have to keep repairing each time. But I’m not 100% sure. That’s because if the TV adapter is the device doing the discovery and the OPN is the device being discovered, then the pairing data is stored in the TV adaptor and keeping only the desired TV adaptor on while the other one is off may just do the trick. It’s similar to having your OPN paired with your iPhone and iPad at the same time. The iPhone and iPad are the discovering device and the OPN are the discovered device. So to get the OPN to work on the iPad and not the iPhone, you need to turn the Bluetooth on your iPhone off temporarily to relinquish control of the OPN over to the iPad. But after your OPN can be streamed to from the iPad, you can turn Bluetooth back on for your iPhone for it to work with other Bluetooth device if you want. So if the TV Adapter works similarly, hopefully keeping only one TV adapter on at a time will do the trick for you. I don’t want to take credit for the iPhone/iPad workaround, though. That credit belongs to gdba from a recent thread he posted up to share his finding.
