Pulseaudio ‘forgets' device profile

Fri May 14, 2021 3:23 pm

Raspberry Pi4 / 4GB

uname –a:

Linux raspberrypi 5.10.17-v7l+ #1414 SMP Fri Apr 30 13:20:47 BST 2021 armv7l GNU/Linux

For audio-output I have connected a bluetooth speaker EasyAcc.
Available for this speaker are 2 device profiles:

- Headset Head Unit (HSP/HFP)
- High Fidelity Playback (A2DP Sink)

When I switch to A2DP Sink after the next boot the profile is always set back to
HSP/HFP. Why can't Pulseaudio remember the last setting?

Raspberry Pi OS is based on GNU/Linux which was intended to be a multiuser operating system. So the preferences of one user don't disturb the other users, the operating system generally makes user directed system level changes temporary.

I'd add a few lines to my user login script to configure things how I like.

Thank you for the link, pidd

But: Raspbian 'remembers' a paired BT loudspeaker, 'remembers' my network(s), 'remembers' my desktop jpg , the resolution (set via screen configuration) ..... why not store (and remember ) the device profile ???
It shouldn't be so difficult to store and re-read it - at least my opinion. (I come from Win-world... there such things are so much more easy)
