12.04.2 on this system for certification.

I am able to pair a bluetooth headset with the system successfully, however, even after selecting the bluetooth device for Input and Output in Sound Settings, I am unable to either record or hear sound using the BT headset.

CID 201206-11396 was tested bluetooth audio on 12.04.3:
  * pair is successful
  * when playing .ogg music example, mode selection in Sound Settings is
    * HSP, then there is no sound
    * A2DP, then there is sound

Jeff Lane, could you please provide the full computer model as noted on the sticker (ex. HP Pavilion 23-1014 All-in-One Desktop PC)?

Hello Sam, Could you please provide the full model name as requested in comment #4? Once it's there, you can give it back to me so I can re-triage it. Thanks!

The broadcom 0a5c:21f1 bluetooth device requires broadcom's firmware for audio to work, however it is not publicly available and not in linux-firmware.

Anthony Wong, is there anyone at Broadcom who would already be working on this, would an open source firmware already be in development by kernel.org upstream, etc.?

Oh, I thought I did reply on this, but obviously I didn't :P

We don't have the full name or any related sticker on the system, all we have is this model name that given by the hardware vendor.

Christopher, none that is happening as far as I know.
