    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!!
    Thanks for the confirmation, I have this support built in to the web interface for the next release.....which is hopefully soon.

    I have just worked through the instructions and have my Bowers & Wilkins PX headphones working. There are some complexities from the headphones turning off when removed from my head, which doesn't play ball with squeezelite - at the moment I'm trying to set parameters to make this smoother.

    This is one of the biggest issues I had to work through. If the audio device disappears, squeezelite will crash. If you turn off the "power" button in LMS, then squeezelite will close the audio output, which you can then turn off your headphones. Just be sure to let your headphones connect before pressing the power button again.


    In the future pCP integration, I've added a check to restart squeezelite if needed when the configured bluetooth speakers connect.

    That's very helpful - thanks!

    I'm keen to give this a try, but will wait for the next release I think. Just to clarify, can this be used with a USB bluetooth dongle, and if so what chipsets are compatible with the in built drivers used by piCorePlayer? I'd like to use my RPi3 with squeezelite with onboard wifi to connect to LMS and the dongle to connect to my bluetooth speaker. Is this likely to work?

    Testing with the new RPi3B+

    Wlan connected at 2.4Mhz, bluetooth plays, but stumbles a little

    Wlan connected at 5Ghz, Bluetooth plays quite nicely

    RP3B+ Hardware limitations

    Paul,
    Are you saying that with the RPI3B+ there is no hardware limitation to using wifi and bluetooth at the same time?

    Correct, as long as the wifi is using a 5Ghz band.

    I have the Rpi3 B+ version and so I am using the 3.5.0 Audio Optimized version.

    I wasn't able to follow the instructions on the 3.5.0AudioOptimized image because in the newer version the file
    /usr/local/bin/pcp-bt-start-controller was not there. Instead there are files

    tc@piCorePlayer:~$ ls /usr/local/bin/*bt*
    /usr/local/bin/btattach /usr/local/bin/pcp-bt-connect-daemon /usr/local/bin/pcp-bt-pair
    /usr/local/bin/btmon /usr/local/bin/pcp-bt-functions


    But I tried to pair my phone anyway and got this:

    tc@piCorePlayer:~$ /usr/local/bin/pcp-bt-pair
    rm: can't remove '/tmp/select.in': No such file or directory
    rm: can't remove '/tmp/btpair': No such file or directory
    Place Device in Pair mode and then hit enter

    in 3.5.0 the scripts were all changed when it was integrated. Scripts are not intended to be ran from command line.

    Also, This is for speaker support only. Not phones.
