    I am running LMS on my Synology NAS. I have two clients connected to it, a Logitech Squeezebox Boom via WiFi, and a Raspberry Pi 3 via ethernet cable. The Raspberry Pi is paired to Bluetooth speakers.

    When listening to the Pi the audio always stops playing. Sometimes after just a couple minutes, sometimes closer to an hour. When this happens, the Bluetooth connection appears to be active (in the Bluetooth Max2Play window the device is green and I don’t hear the speakers beep like they do when a device is disconnected). Also, the LMS is still streaming audio (I can see the track is playing in my browser. When syncing the Pi audio with my Boom, audio continues playing on my Boom, which never loses connection).

    The same results happen when paired with my Logitech MX Sound speakers or my Riva Turbo X speakers.

    Restarting Squeezelite doesn’t solve the problem. Restarting the speakers doesn’t, either (they reconnect via Bluetooth, but are silent). The only solve is to reboot the Pi entirely.

    From the forums, I’ve tried the following recommendations:
    – Disabling Wifi
    – Using USB-DAC
    – Enabling Max USB-Current

    Any suggestions to fix this issue? Thank you.

    Hi sf,

    Unfortunately, this issue is not resolved, yet. We are working on a fix for the next version of Max2Play.
    Bluetooth connectivity is problematic as there are a huge variety of end devices used with varying technologies used. But we are looking into what might cause the issues on a general level and whether there are any measures to reduce the occurrence of dropouts.

    Hi Heiner,

    That’s too bad, but I appreciate your honesty! I bought Max2Play for this function specifically, so I’m hoping it will be fixed in the next round.

    Thanks for the response.

    Thanks for the feedback, we will try our best to find the ideal solution in the next version 🙂
