  1. HI,

    I have a BT receiver connected to the Aux input of my vintage stereo receiver and paired to a Nest Mini so I can play Spotify through my receiver and speakers. I also have the power cord from the stereo plug into a smart plug, so all I have to do is tell the Assistant to turn the stereo on and play Spotify. This has worked great for over a year. Recently, I notice a regular pop-pop sound from the Nest mini when I am not playing any music and stereo is off. I tried turning off Ultrasound sensing and I am still getting the sound. The popping stops, however, when I unplug power to the BT receiver. Any advice on why the BT receiver is causing the popping and how I can stop it, other than having to unplug it every day.
