    piCorePlayer 8.0.0 - Bluetooth Discussion

    There is alot of old and outdated discussion in the other thread, so creating a new one.

    New to pCP8 is an always discoverable setting in the web interface and a new pinless/prompless pairing program. Designed to allow a "party" mode where anyone can connect and start streaming.

    Looking for some feedback here. My iphone works fine, but devices like amazon Echos that can be sinks or sources sometimes don't figure out the right mode.

    Pair -> Connect -> Disconnect -> Reconnect -> Play.

    I'm using a Pi model 2 (2B?) - this worked fine with my Bowers & Wilkins PX bluetooth headphones using a BT USB stick and pCP 6.1.0
    I burned a fresh SD card with pCP 8, and I've been trying to get my headphones to connect.

    I installed Bluetooth on the Pi. I have set the Pi to be discoverable. pCP sees the headphones after a scan. The BT Controller and the BT Pairing Daemon appear to be running fine. But the BT Speaker daemon turns off when I try to connect the headphones - and the headphones don't seem to connect.

    Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong!

    You have paired the phones, yes?

    Probably not a lot of help, but in New Zealand it's not always easy to find things on "approved" lists. I risked a small amount of money on a couple of USB dongles, unbranded Chinese products described as, "CSR V4.0 Dongle". So cheap they don't even have a bar code on their packaging! They work just fine!

    Robert, check the web interface and make sure it says speaker as the Type. With the headless phone pairing, the default type sometime get set to player.
