Ok, that sounds great.
Does it autopair again or are you still struggling with that part? What about kernel oops' when turning off the BT speaker? Can you turn it on and off lets say 10 times and it keeps coming online?

No problems with on/off - no crashes.

The cheap bt speaker just won't autopair - I have to bluez-test-audio connect <address> every time. The logitech speaker autopairs.

I can't figure out where to put the script to run when the Pi boots - doesn't work calling it in rc.local

There's something rotten in the state of bluetooth.

Conceptronic dongle + cheap bt speaker - connects but won't autopair - allows on/off
Conceptronic dongle + logitech speaker - refuses to pair with Authorization Failure

Cheap dongle + cheap speaker - connects, won't autopair - network crash when off
Cheap dongle + logitech speaker - connects, autopairs - crash when off

Same outcome on Pi and Cubieboard .... ?????? :shock: :shock: :shock:

FINALLY ..... after weeks of googling, posting questions on numerous forums, helpful replies from many users, I now have a solution to my bluetooth problems.

I used a second dongle (Conceptronic - Broadcomm) which resolutely refused to pair with my Logitech speaker - always reported Authorization Failed on any pairing attempt (even though a slew of files were created in /var/lib/bluetooth for the adapter).

I must have tried every possible tip & configuration I came across on the interweb without success, UNTIL I came across this post from a Gentoo forum: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-72 ... d1#7238936

Solution! BT speaker now connects and disconnects without problem and without the network crash I experienced with the Topdigi adapter I tried when I first embarked on this odyssey!.

Maybe this might help any others struggling with bluetooth audio.

edit: thank goodness an overzealous mod didn't delete the post because it was a recent reply to an old thread!!!
