Hello, Is is possible to refresh MB while working so it would see new 'output to' devices?
Now when I connect my pc to my bluetooth speakers, I have to restart MB to make it see new outputs. Bit annoying. Or maybe I am doing sth the wrong way?
Thank you

I just tested:
1. Bluetooth off Edit->Edit Preferences...Player...sound device (list).  Bluetooth Device not present
2. Turn on Bluetooth -> Connect to Speaker
3. Edit->Edit Preferences...Player...sound device (list). Bluetooth Speaker is present, no restart required.

Is this not what you're seeing?

I just tested:
For me it's also working fine with a usb soundcard.
If I start and play MusicBee with it turned off, MB only sees, and plays over my onboard dac.
If I then turn the usb soundcard on, I can then select and use it without restarting MB.

What version number of MB are you using? And what type of install?

If you right-click on the player bar, highlight 'Output' and then click the current output player, it'll reset the list and you can repeat the steps to access new players.

I did not know that. Great tip.
