Can I use a Dell u2717d monitor ( 2560x1440 ) as a roku display (with stick)?
The Dell has a HDMI port so I figure I can stick in Roku stick.
But how about audio? For example if I like to use a Bluetooth headset? The Roku stick does not support. But could I get some sort of USB stick on the monitor to "broadcast" BT audio?

Have you tried using the private listening feature off the roku phone app? You have to be on the same network as your roku and headphones paired with your phone.

Just hit the headphone button on the app.

Thanks. I tried it out and works well. My setup is for a workout station. I might prefer an option where I can leave the phone away for a while.
