    I have a question or maybe a feature request:

    using squeeze server for raspberry, is it at all possible to pair and use more than one Bluetooth device at the same time? In the sense: is it possible to stream TO the squeezebox server (say from the mobile) and from it (to some loudspeakers)?
    Or to pair more than one pair of loudspeakers at once? I do this last thing under windows all the time just by creating a virtual sound card with virtual audio cable and by replicating the output signal across different Bluetooth devices.

    Thanks!

    Dear All,

    I have a problem that might as well be related to my USB BT dongle. I am using a PI2, under Max2Play version 2.37, and I have just bought the premium license (thanks for this amazing project, by the way!).
    I have installed the Bluetooth plugin and the procedure seemed to end correctly, only any scan for devices turns out empty. This is the debug window:

    		module.description = "Load filter sinks automatically when needed"

    A (little) bit of investigation from the console led me to:

    
     service bluetooth status
    ● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
       Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled)
       Active: active (running) since Sat 2016-11-05 09:41:28 CET; 24min ago
         Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)
     Main PID: 365 (bluetoothd)
    

    and to

    
    hcitool scan
    Scanning ...
            11:75:58:23:81:06       AS200
    

    and I can get the device information too.
    Only, if I try to connect:

    sudo hcitool cc  11:75:58:23:81:06
    Can't create connection: Input/output error

    Going into bluetoothctl, I have:

    
    [bluetooth]# list
    [bluetooth]# devices
    [bluetooth]#
    

    Any idea? Thanks!
    Christian
