Hi

Please redirect me if I am posting in the wrong place! I am struggling to set up a simple squeezelite player linked to a Bluetooth speaker. My problem is I originally set up the Bluetooth plug in and paired my speaker all working well. Now as I moved my set up I did fresh install and now the Bluetooth plugin lists my speaker as a known device but will not connect!!

This is the info I get when I try and connect to the visible speaker:

Bluetooth Setup Page
Using BluetoothCTL Manager
Make sure to set the soundcard of your audioplayers to PULSE (advanced settings Squeezelite) to get them to work with Bluetooth!
