    This isn't exactly a home theater issue, but its the closest forum I can find for my question. Please re-direct me if there's a better forum for this.

    I am switching from Dish to DTV. One thing I liked about my Dish Hopper was that it had Bluetooth built into the receiver, and I could connect speakers or headphones to listen to programming if I wanted to listen in an alternate location from where the TV was or if I wanted to not disturb others while watching something. I just figured out that the Genie does not have a Bluetooth transmitter, and I want to keep my remote speaker setup in place.

    What is a good BT transmitter solution that I can install, inline with the RCA audio outputs on the receiver, and leave in place for on-demand listening. I don't want to have to re-pair speakers or headsets each time I use them. Also, I'd like the ability to have multiple devices paired at once - not for simultaneous listening (although that would be nice). I would like to be able to go to the patio and listen to the game on a BT speaker. Then, later, I would like to be able to connect via my headset and listen to a movie in bed without waking anyone up.

    This model ( seems to have some of these capabilities, but I'd like to hear some real-world experience on the subject.
