Connecting Echo Dot 5 to Bluetooth receiver
« on: November 04, 2023, 12:04:27 am »
 Hi there,
I'm having trouble getting my newly purchased Echo Dot 5 to connect to my Bluetooth receiver (FiiO BTA30 Pro).

I currently have the receiver plugged into an amp to play music from my phone. I am trying to connect the Dot to the receiver so that when the Dot plays music, it will play through the amp. Currently I can only get the Dot to connect to the receiver when I put it into its transmitting mode which doesn't help me as I need it to receive Bluetooth from the Dot..

Has anyone encountered anything similar to this or has an idea of how to resolve it? I am not sure whether the issue is with the Dot of the receiver.

Thanks in advance.

for clarification, are you trying to connect the dot to the transceiver via bluetooth so it will transmit the signal via bluetooth to speakers?   are you able to connect the dot with wire instead of bluetooth?   are you wanting both the phone and the dot connected at the same time?
