Hi Tanu,

Thanks for the quick review! :)

My mobile phone (Nokia E7 running Symbian Belle Refresh) is connecting
to pulseaudio/bluez running on my Arch Linux on my Raspberry Pi. Without
this patch every few minutes pulseaudio will disconnect the stream and
log "SBC decoding error (-3)". As you can imagine this is quite
annoying! :)

I see what you mean about the timing code being wrong. What does
pulseaudio use this for? Should I expect to hear some audio glitches
with the current incorrect code, or is it just for display in a GUI?

I've modified it to use the number of bytes that sbc_decode reports it
wrote to the output buffer. Both versions seem to work equally well for

You can see them here:

I can submit these as patch files with git-send-email if that's
preferable for review.

Thanks again :)
