Thanks so much!
For clarity, here are the specifics on my setup:
RPi „Pool“ – M2P v2.53, RPi is a Pi 3 Model B v1.2. It’s using a HiFiBerry output card.
I’m running Logitech Media Server V7.9.1 on this RPi.
I believe both of these are up to date.
There are two other RPis in the M2P network. Neither is running LMS. Both are running M2P v2.53.
The iphone is also up to date (iPhone 13), and it’s within about 2 meters of the RPi. It plays all other bluetooth devices without any dropouts (music or podcasts).
