Unable to find new bluetooth devices


I’ve been having difficulty detecting any new bluetooth headsets. My harmony keyboard is connected (and i don’t dare disconnect to experiment) but I can’t add several new devices, they don’t seem to be discoverable.

I’ve tried with pulseaudio and then switched to pipewire to try again, but I still seem to have the same problem. Bluez, etc are all installed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Should be a Intel Corporation Wireless-AC 9260 adapter
