I have a Samsung Series 6 UHD TV 40" from 2016 (UA40KU6000). I am trying to use a pair of Plantroncs BackBeat Pro 2 wireless headphones with the TV without success.


I might be on to a loser but I am trying to use the TV's engineer's menu to open up the menu options for bluetooth headphones. In the engineering options menu, the BT Audio option is set to On. Under the MRT Options the BT Support option is set as "Not supported" and I cannot seem to change it.


Does this mean I cannot do what I am trying to do? Seems odd that the bluetooth audio option is set to yes if the TV doesn't support it.


Anyone else tried to solve this issue? 


If I am on to a loser, anyone tied using bluetooth headphones using some sort of bluetooth dongle/emitter plugged into the TV?

Are you sure the TV has Bluetooth? The engineering options menu may be generic across a number of models.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yep, fair cop. Looks like my TV doesn't support it.

Disappointing for a TV from only last year.

Will look into getting something to stick in the audio output that transmits bluetooth.
