    PiCorePlayer 7 and Bluetooth

    Today i installed PiCorPlayer 7 on my RPI3+ to play music from my LMS to my new bluetooth speaker (JBL BoomBox).

    The install went smooth and also the pairing/connection to my BT-speaker is okay. Squeezelite is running and visible in LMS as a player.
    I would expect to see the BT-speaker under Squeezelite Settings > Audio output device settings but i don't see it in the list.
    I guess this is the reason i do not get any music output from my speakers.

    I'm afraid i missed something in the configuration but cannot figure out what...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You probably have two instances of Squeezelite running now.
    From ssh session try:

    ps -ef | grep squeezelite

    Hi Paul, thanks for your swift reply. I see this output:

    Code:
    tc@piCorePlayer:~$ ps -ef | grep squeezelite
    10468 root      0:45 /usr/local/bin/squeezelite -o bt_JBL_BoomBox -n JBL BoomBox                  -m 98 52 3D BE BE F9 -a 80   1 -M SqueezeLiteBT -f /dev/null
    12313 root      1:01 /usr/local/bin/squeezelite -n piCorePlayer -a      -C 5
    15091 tc        0:00 grep squeezelite
    tc@piCorePlayer:~$
    Look indeed like a second proces is running. How do i proceed now to get music out of my BoomBox?

    picoreplayer on a rpi4b with pidisplay and bluetooth speaker

    Hi all,

    I've been trying out the picoreplayer on a rpi4b with a pidisplay and a bluetoothspeaker (megaboom3)
    It all connects even the bluetooth seems to connect on poweron.

    Via lms I can play music on the bt speaker.

    However the bluetoothspeaker can only be managed via lms and not via the jivelite.

    Is there a way to configure jivelite/picoreplayer so that jivelite connects to the bluetoothspeaker instance ?

    currently the pidisplay is kinda useless when using bluetooth speakers.

    Tjako

    Once the speaker is connected, you can select it from the jivelite interface. Jivelite works best with devices that are always connected.

    Ok...

    I found the option to select the device, somehow managed to miss that one.

    My setup is working properly now.


    Thanx.
