As the title asks, does the AC 7260 support aptx over bluetooth in windows 7 or windows 8/8.1?
I am trying to connect bluetooth headphones to the computer for listening to music however the led on my headphones indicates that I am listening to the music using the standard codec and not aptx. Is there any way to confirm or make sure that the headphones would be connected using aptx? I am trying it on a windows 7 computer atm.
What device manufacturer are you talking about? My headphones work fine and automatically connect through aptx on my phone. Intel made the AC 7260 bluetooth adapter which I have and also the drivers. Seems like the problem is with drivers or the bluetooth adapter. Does the bluetooth stack intel uses in the 7260 drivers include the aptx codec?
You need to go back to your device manufacturer or your OEM for the aptx codec. In this case, it would seem like you need to go back to your laptop OEM.
I'll give that a go but how come I need to go to the device manufacturer? Intel made the card and I downloaded the drivers from Intel's website. Where does the device manufacturer come into it?
The Apt-X codec is provided to and supported by the OEMs (computer manufacturer). If you don't have it, or it is not working for you, you need to get help from the OEM.
