Sony XM4 with Sony Z9F soundbar - setup driving me nuts


Novice Member
Folks need some help. I have the XM4 cans and the Z9F soundbar. I am trying to utilize the dual device feature of XM4 so i have it connected to my Fire 10 first to watch movies. Then i paired it with the Z9F.
The annoying part is when i start the headset, it connects with the Fire 10 and then starts the soundbar and I cannot use the tablet. I have to turn off the soundbar to resume watching/hearing from the tablet. In the Sony headphone app, the soundbar is device 1 and i simply cannot go to device 2 (table) without turning soundbar off.
I tried putting the soundbar in Receive mode so it will not get turned off. However when i switch the soundbar to Transmitter mode, these 2 idiots cannot connect for nuts. I have to delete the paired entry from the soundbar, reset it and then do bluetooth pairing again.
Sony support is useless. Folks owning the XM4 and Z9F, have you encountered such problems? Thoughts?
