it looks like the same device multiple times
Scroll up to top of page and choose More Bluetooth settings


Look on the hardware tab
how much hardware is listed on yours?

There doesn't appear to be a bulk removal option
  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Devices.
  3. Click on Bluetooth & other devices.
  4. Select the peripheral.
  5. Click the Remove device button.
  6. Click the Yes button to confirm.

Don't have any Bluetooth devices as this is a desktop PC

And yeah that's what I've had to do is click on each on and manually remove.

I want to know what's creating them, I've got 2 chrome casts and my media server using PLEX

Router is 192.168.0.1 my PC is 192.168.0.2 I've looked at 192.168.0.4 in my router and it's only got a mac address and no name and it's not one of the chrome casts, but it is a wireless device of some type.

As per my other post https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/what-are-all-these-devices-in-my-device-list-there-is-about-50-of-them.3614165/#post-21794516

I figured out what is causing it but not what to do about it.

I just got a new smart TV and I'm using it as my monitor. I put in the wifi details and hooked it up to a lan cable, and it's this thing that every time I turn on/off the tv it creates one of these media servers.

It's got DNLA compatibility so I think it's trying to do something there, if I disable the connection then it looses it's smart capability but that's the only thing that seems to work.
