    Yes. My echo dot streams just fine to a Sony srs x33 BT speaker.

    I think you would need to set it as type "Streamer" in pCP.
    However, in my case I already have a streamer type ... it is a USB audio-in card ... and I don't think pCP has out-of-the-box configuration for a 2nd one (am looking).

    I have a second gen dot, it sends bluetooth to my pCP device in player mode.

    Pair it like you would a speaker, then select mode as "Player" and save. Then force disconnection of the dot from the pCP interface.

    Then talk to your dot. "Alexa Connect Bluetooth"

    It should work.

    Tried that, but didnt work.
    So i tried pairing my phone to see if it would stream to PcP. To narrow down the culprit. Sadly, the phone doesnt play either. I paired the phone, went into the Bluetooth page on PcP, set it as player, saved, disconnected and reconnected (checked out initiating the connection from PcP and from the phone both). Neither worked.
    Not sure why..... here's the log snippet, let me know if more would help.
    Code:

    06-18 09:14 IST INFO        Starting player:"OnePlus 7 Pro" bluetooth, alsa device:"hw:CARD=sndallodigione,DEV=0", volume:"".
    Is it relevant that pCP ALSAVOLUME is null, and so is the volume field at the end of the last line? If so, where/how does that get set? The pCP plays local music, radio stations etc. with no intervention, so I know the chain does produce sound from the speakers.

    Volume is not relevant, the log entry is an old remnant from older versions. Make sure your squeezelite is not playing when you are trying. Squeezelite has to have released the Alsa hardware device. When Bluetooth is installed, we automatically add the -c setting to squeezelite.

    Thanks! That was it. Killed the squeezelite process and tried. It worked then.
    Did you mean -C (in CAPS)?

    I then realized that the pcp gui always reports squeezelite to be not running, though a check on the terminal does show a running squeezelite instance. That means that a restart of squeezelite from the webgui, manually initiated or because one hit Save doesn't actually work. The running backend process doesn't die. So to apply any changed parameters, I need to kill the existing process from the command line, then hit Save - squeezelite is then restarted with any changed parameters.
    Sorry if this is OT for this thread, but wonder why this is so.

    Yes capital C in that option. If you start squeezelite from anything other than the interface that can happen.

    squeezelite starts automatically on boot, but is running as root. This was a fresh install of 6.1, though I have now updated to 7. Assume this is from some autostart entry, but not sure where to look. thanks

    In the pCP web interface look under Tweaks/Audio tweaks - you can disable autostart in there.
