Recording from Bluetooth

Post by Norfolkman38 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 4:40 pm

I am trying to record audio from a bluetooth device but am unable to find the correct settings.
In simple terms, I have a radio, the audio output is wired to a bluetooth transmitter. The Bluetooth on my Lenovo Ideapad laptop is linked OK but I can't find the correct setting to record in Audacity.
I tried "Bluetooth SCO audio" and "Bluetooth AV audio"
Also tried "MME" Windows WASAPI & Win Direct Sound.#
Could someone please tell me what settings I should use?

Many thanks
