    I am having an issue connecting bluetooth devices to play audio through the HIFIBerry Dac. Here is my debug error.

    Hardware: Raspberry PI Zero W

    Hi Tim,

    Do you have the Bluetooth plugin’s output selected for HiFiBerry DAC+?

    Do you have a new stretch image?

    Please make a update of all packages at the bottom of the Raspberry Settings.

    I had the same error on Raspberry Pi 1 Mod. B with Raspbian Stretch and newest Kernel.

    I did the following:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -y libasound2-dev dh-autoreconf libortp-dev bluez pi-bluetooth bluez-tools libbluetooth-dev libusb-dev libglib2.0-dev libudev-dev libical-dev libreadline-dev libsbc1 libsbc-dev
    git clone
    cd bluez-alsa
    autoreconf --install
    mkdir build && cd build
    ../configure --disable-hcitop --with-alsaplugindir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/alsa-lib
    make && sudo make install

    After that bluealsa was running and i could establish the bluetooth connection to my bluetooth speaker.

    Hi Preslmayer,

    A simple click on the apt-get button in our Raspberry Settings will also suffice.

    However, we will also launch a new version with the newest packages very soon to make sure nobody can be affected in the future.
