    Sorry, I am actually using the ShairTunes2 plugin for Squeezebox instead of Shairport

    1. Dezember 2018 at 1:17 #42463

    I believe I have the latest version of the OpenHAB squeezebox plugin (2.3.0)

    I have tested both using commands in a rules file to play sounds and text to speech through the Squeezebox plugin and setting the Squeezebox server as an audio sink for everything. None of these work.

    My setup is that I have two Raspberry Pi 3 B+ connected through WiFi.
    One of them runs OpenHAB, and the one next to it runs Max2Play.
    The Max2Play Pi has a squeezebox server and another squeezelite instance. The squeezebox server is played through the on-board stereo jack and the squeezelite instance is played through a USB sound card. These both go to amplifiers/to the auxiliary input in a sound system which is permanently on.

    It is set for both squeezebox instances to synchronise so only the volume/power/mute can be changed independently.

    Thanks, Josh

    Hi Heiner,
    Thanks for the response, I filled in the contact form on the website.
    In terms of OpenHAB, are you referring to the plugin or the whole build? Thanks

    I found an old Bluetooth dongle and connected it, however it didn’t make a difference.
    It is too impractical to get a wired Ethernet connection from my router to my Pi.

    I tested the Bluetooth connection by streaming directly to Max2Play – this works absolutely fine, so I don’t think it is a problem with the connection.

    The problem only arises from the Bluetooth receiver to Squeezebox – this is also why I believe that the OpenHAB problem is involved with this. I don’t think that the Max2Play input to Squeezebox works.

    Also, I originally purchased a one month license as I thought that this would be a simple process, and it exipires tomorrow. Is there any way to extend it for a discounted price because of these issues or is the only solution to buy another license?

    Hi Heiner,
    Unfortunately I do not own a Bluetooth dongle. Is there any other way I can fix this without buying one?
    Would it be useful to look at logs? If so, how would I find them?

    The issue regarding OpenHAB is that no sound will come through Squeezebox (a similar issue to the Bluetooth issue, where sound is not played/received). Should I post this on the other forum as well?

    Hi Heiner,
    Thanks for your response.
    I’ve tried removing all other Bluetooth devices and resetting the Bluetooth device, but this still doesn’t work.
    I’ve also tried using other Bluetooth devices but that doesn’t work.

    Also, did you get anywhere with the OpenHab issue?

    Hi Heiner,
    The Bluetooth feature still doesn’t work, even if I select it manually from favourites.

    Although it will still switch to Bluetooth if my phone starts sending data, the audio source will only last 1 second or so with no noise and will then end (stopping or returning to something).

    I know that my phone can send data as using AirPlay works.

    If there is nothing currently playing when something is played through Bluetooth, the item that was played last is repeated.
    In my case, this was an audio stream from an internet radio source which I had played earlier.

    Thanks for all the help with this issue

    I have another update:
    I’ve tried rebooting everything and this time the Bluetooth problem is worse.

    When I try to play some music through Bluetooth, what is currently playing will pause momentarily but then resume, ignoring the Bluetooth input.
    The same thing happens when I stop playing music through Bluetooth.

    Hi Heiner, thanks for the reply.

    I am using the exact commands as specified.
    I don’t think it is a command problem as
    a) The issue still happens when I select squeezebox as the default SoundSink on the PaperUI GUI
    b) All the other features of the binding work, such as the streaming URL and volumes

    The device is paired successfully using Max2Play and the „Bluetooth-Streaming in Squeezebox Server“ package is installed and set to start automatically.
    When I connect a device using Bluetooth, as I mentioned previously, the interface shows that a Bluetooth input is playing. It will not, however, actually play any sound.
