More bluetooth speaker pairing woes

I’ve got a Pi3b, trying to pair with a Vizio sound bar, using the Pi’s built-in bluetooth but no dice. I’ve got the latest updates installed. OSMC can see the Vizio but won’t pair. I did try some of the command-line commands but no success there either. I can pair and trust, but not connect. I get the “Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed” error.

I’ve looked around on the forums here but haven’t found anything helpful. Is the internal bluetooth adapter still not working well for audio device pairing? Has anyone got any suggestions that worked for them?

Did you install the A2DP package?


Yes. Didn’t work.
