Amazon Echo Dot / Alexa as bluetooth speaker.

As I stated previously I want to use my Dot as an always on BT speaker. Today I downloaded the latest M2P HifiBerry (my plan is to eventuallt use multiplayer and a HiFiBerry card to use one Pi to drive my BOSE stack, and my Dot

I did all the usual stuff including expanding F/S installing Bluetooth plugin etc. I then managed to pair my Dot to the Pi.
Lastly I made sure that the AudioPlayer was set to use Pulse as it’s output. A final reboot and everything was ready. Unfortunately, despite both the Pi and the Dot saying that they were paired, when I try to play music, nothing happens, and the track skips to the end.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can do next?
