So I’m curious – has anyone achieved stability in using this Bluetooth addon to source music from, say, a phone to LMS yet?
I haven’t (after much effort). I still see:
– While the Bluetooth link between my iphone 6S and the RP3 appears stable, either Max2Play or LMS is intermittent. The playback randomly stops and eventually restarts. I see a long trail of my bluetooth device, “Dave’s Iphone” shown in the playlist, and at each intermittent stop and restart, a new listing will appear in the playlist. If I leave it on long enough, I’ll get 100’s of them in the playlist.
– This behavior is independent of whether I’m controlling LMS via my windows 10 chrome browser or my iPeng app running on my iphone.
– Also noted – after attempting to run the bluetooth plugin, having it fail, and then going back to listen to either another plugin (i.e., pandora, etc.), or just listening to a networked audio file, the bluetooth app “reasserts” itself… the selected audio file will start playing, stop, and the bluetooth plugin will reappear (and still not work). I have to stop the LMS and restart it to avoid having bluetooth reassert itself.
While I’m really rocking on the abilities afforded by Max2Play + LMS, I really want the ability to drive the input from my smartphone via bluetooth (in order to play Sirius XM from the iPhone app, stream podcasts, etc.).
Is this a user error, or a real issue?
In any case – Thanks! And any/all help would be gratefully appreciated.
