Hi Heiner,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Regarding your question: The phone was closer to the Pi than the Echo!

Meanwhile I made more tests:
– I noticed that also streaming from the phonestopped after about 20 minutes
– I reduced the distance between Echo and Pi to 40cm. In this case the streaming stopped only after ~20 minutes
– I streamed my Amazon Echo via BT to an Ubuntu server (3m distance) with a loop from BT input loop to HDMI audio output. Everything was stable for several hours!
– Yesterday, I tried the M2P beta SW 171115. The streaming worked for 1.5 hours! When I checked again after 2.5 hours the streaming was stopped. The BT connection was still active. After disconnecting/connecting BT the streaming worked again.

My assumption is that there is a bug in the M2P BT plugin! Whenever there is a short BT connection problem (which can always happen due to WiFi/BT interference) then the plugin stops working. The problem seems to be improved in the beta SW, but it is not completely solved.

Did you test your BT plugin in your lab with Amazon Echo running for several hours with a Wifi interference from neighboring access points?

Thanks and regards
