    Would love Bluetooth INPUT to piCorePlayer

    I see plenty there's been a maturing capability to stream Bluetooth audio *from* the piCorePlayer. But I would love the ability to stream Bluetooth *to* the piCorePlayer from my phone.

    I have several piCorePlayers in my home, and I'm adding one to the back yard, wired to a couple of self-powered speakers. I would love the ability to occasionally pair my phone to the piCorePlayer and stream audio from my phone through the piCorePlayer.

    Any chance this could be added to piCorePlayer?
    Really, it was like that when I got here.

    Good news for you - it already can!
    In pCP 6 choose "streamer" in the Bluetooth page.

    Thanks! I didn't realize that.

    Running pCP 6 on a RPi3B+, I've the enabled the onboard Bluetooth, installed and started up the pCP Bluetooth support, and enabled Streamer for Audio Input under Tweaks.

    I set the pCP to be discoverable on the Bluetooth page. I paired my phone with it. Both the phone and the Bluetooth page on the pCP indicate they're successfully paired.

    But nothing I play on my phone can be heard through the pCP.

    You have to think of your Bluetooth source as an internet radio stream and ask LMS to play that stream URL (from the Tweaks page) on one of your LMS players.

    Tried that. Still no sound.

    But I did find while searching through the threads here a reference to a pCP Patch Update. Applied that.

    Now I've got my phone streaming directly to the player without having to use the stream in LMS. Cool!

    Remote Control

    Hi! What remote control unite can you recommend to use with piCorePlayer? I prefer one side RCU and something from Aliexpress.
