I will look into those

That did work! The first time I could connect using Jaybird 3. It did require

Something that could be specified on the URL may help. Just for legacy, so
would not be normal for default/SRP.

Could the order be reversed and try legacy then Srp? If Srp failure is causing
problems for Jaybird to try the next plugin. That may be another way to go,
although more ideal to use Srp first then legacy. May need to reverse for a
transition period.

I can see others doing legacy before srp, though some may go the opposite. I
get what your saying, since Srp, Legacy did not work for Jaybird 2 and
Flamerobin. If Srp fails and Legacy did not, it was not trying legacy just
failing to connect. Thus me having Legacy, Srp ordering.
