No play on A2DP Bluetooth

As of a couple of releases ago (I'm not exactly sure when it started) I can not play podcasts over bluetooth. I used to be able to and the only thing that has changed that I can think of has been a couple of Doggcatcher updates.

With my a2dp bluetooth connected, when I select a podcast the play icon shows up next to the podcast name but the progress bar and title don't update and no sound ever comes out. Tapping the podcast again will change the icon next to the podcast to a pause button but still there is no change in the progress bar or track name in the player controls.

When I disconnect the bluetooth and use the internal speaker or headphones, everything works fine. I am running version 1.1.1315. The application log doesn't show anything useful. There are only two entries that are the feed updating and that took place long before I tried playing the podcast over bluetooth. I'm running on a Sprint HTC Hero.

Android music player

Can you try playing the same audio files in the android music player over bluetooth and see if that works?

Strange thing this morning.

Strange thing this morning. Though nothing has changed since my original posting, for some reason it actually worked this morning. I'm going to continue to keep an eye on it and if I can get it to happen again I'll post the details as well as try the phones default media player. Though when it was happening before I was able to play Pandora just fine.
