    Synced RPi's: Zero with disconnected BT speaker affects other players

    Hi guys

    Is it normal that when the BT speaker, that I use with a Zero W, is off that the other synced players (players are always synced) have playback issues?
    Of course I realize that Squeezelite on the Zero stops running when the BT connection is off.
    Now I always have to unplug the Zero to prevent this.

    TIA

    Hi Paul, I know about this plugin but I don't think it adds something to switching off the Zero through Squeezer, at least for my particular situation or am I wrong?
    If possible, I would prefer to just switching off the BT speaker without any additional handling since this happens quite often.
    It's a portable BT speaker, used for moving around a little and playing for shorter period of times, aside of the 'main' RPi's.

    In the kitchen, there is that wireless always on/synced RPi with active speakers which have a power button so by just switching on/off those speakers you have music.
    I love pCP for it's possibilities and it's a perfect addition here to listen to own collection of music and web-streams without being a hostage to proprietary systems which might have a limited lifespan/support/updates.
    The only 'downside' is the limitation to control the RPi unless unplugging or with an external amp/active speakers without the necessity of another device (pc with browser, tablet/smartphone, touchscreen with Jivelite)
