    I seem to have had a malfunction downloading the pcp-bt.tcz file

    I see this in the pcp_bt.log file

    tc@PiCore31LAN:~$ sudo vi /var/log/pcp_bt.log

    Bluetooth Hardware Address:b8:27:eb:d4:f6:35
    bcm43xx_init
    Flash firmware /usr/local/lib/firmware/brcm/BCM43430A1.hcd
    Set BDADDR UART: b8:27:eb:d4:f6:35
    Set Controller UART speed to 921600 bit/s
    Device setup complete

    I do not understand where I went astray, I hope you can help me.

    Thanks

    I too am having challanges getting BT to work as simply as it should. Whenever I select Bluetooth audio and set the output setting and power on/off script to the values specified Squeezelite no longer starts.

    pcp_bt.log reports:-

    It all looks ok except for that bus error but it still refuses to start.

    Any ideas?

    squeezeGoose,

    Seems I missed a step for you

    edit /opt/.filetool.lst and add /var/lib/bluetooth at the end. (I've updated the OP)

    Then repair your speaker.


    Ignore the dbus error. The bus takes a bit to start and sometimes the script tries before it's complete. But the script does keep trying. The () after the error message is actually the success. (I probably should have a better message printed


    Edit: I've updated the script to include a better message. You can download the latest by running "pcp-update pcp-bt.tcz"

    Great, thanks, I'll have a play!

    Just a quick confirmation of something, you wrote "Rpi onboard wifi for sure wont work.", I assume that to mean that WiFi and Bluetooth can't be used at the same time? Is that a radio or a driver limitation? A WiFi, Bluetooth piCorePlayer would be pretty cool!

    A small "thank you" in the donation pot for you too...

    On the rpi3 it is a Hardware implementation limitation. But there are also driver incompatibilities for other chipsets.

    I have two at home that did work.

    I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones - would they function as if they were Bluetooth speakers for this experimental Bluetooth set-up? The set-up process doesn't look too daunting to me, and I'm keen to give it a go when I have a chance - back in analogue world, I'm currently making a few mechanical changes to my Planar 3!

    Yes, they should work. I am getting close to getting this support integrated into the web interface.

    First of all thank you for the great work you are sharing here! Respect!

    I just want to confirm that my Phillips SHB-3060 bluetooth headphones are running fine with the manual you described here in this tread.
    Finally I got handsfree music in my home office, without disturbing anybody else in the house

    Looking forward for more exiting developments on the pcp here!!
