    Bluetooth on piCorePlayer, pi Zero W

    I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere. I have been beating my head against the wall on this one. I have followed several tutorials for how to get bluetooth working on the latest piCorePlayer (5.0.0) but nothing seems to be working. I get as far as enabling BT in the Wifi settings tab, but no matter what I do, I can't get the Connect Daemon to start, which means I can't scan or find any devices. I've tried other pi zeros so I know this isn't hardware-related. Has anyone gotten BT to work on the latest version using a pi zero? If so, how did you do it? I have little experience with this particular player setup so I'm not sure what would be useful for me to post from the config or the logs.

    Thanks.
