    Does anyone know why the playbook won't even find my Sony bluetooth speaker?

    Do you have the speaker in the correct pairing mode?

    Sometimes there is a required button sequence on the speaker to get it into pairing mode. If you still have the manual for the speaker, have a look for a section on pairing mode.

    Thanks. Yes, other devices are able to be found and connect. Just not the Playbook. I'll play around with it some more though.

    USB Audio wasn't initially available on the PlayBook OS, and certain encoding methods aren't supported (eg. Apt-X), so I wonder whether your Sony speaker might use encoding profiles that are too new for the PlayBook to recognise.

    Remember, the PlayBook is an old device and hasn't had a proper OS update in a couple of years now.

    I think you are correct. I'm thinking the Sony bluetooth speaker I have is just too new.
