    Hi,

    I guess the Bluetooth add-on was build to integrate loudspeakers.
    But is it also possible to configure that add-on (or standard RaspberryPI 3 bluetooth) to allow audio streaming from a smartphone to M2P so that the stream is routed to the Toslink line of a Digi+ card?

    Awesome project btw ­čÖé

    Thanks, Gino

    Hi Gino,
    You can currently stream music from your smartphone to the Squeezebox player Squeezelite through DLNA (Apps like BubbleUPnP). You can also use AirPlay with Shairport or the shairtunes2 plugin. There are also many dedicated Squeezebox Apps out there (Squeezer, iPeng). This is why we are currently not focussing on an option to play via bluetooth and instead built a plugin that can couple your Pi with a BT speaker to use as an additional player output.

    Hi Gino,
    Quick update, the Bluetooth Plugin actually also works with smartphones to couple for input. Just pair the device you want to play music from and the Pulse Audioserver will play the stream to your next audio device (usually the 3.5mm jack). If you use a sound card, you still need to select the Pulse Audioserver as the output device in Squeezelite, but you also have to “deactivate the integrated audio on Pi3” in the Raspberry Setttings to make sure that the audio jack is not used as the output device.
    Also, if you are using a screen, make sure to remove the tick on “Autostart Desktop” under Settings/Reboot, otherwise two conflicting instances of the X Server might be started.
