Bluetooth connection from Samsung Smart TV

I have a new samsung smart tv that I am able to connect as a source through bluetooth to several different speakers. However, it does not even see the sprout in the connection utility. I have place the sprout directly next to the tv with no change in behavior. I’m guessing this is due to some difference in bluetooth versions, but I would like to confirm, and also see if anyone has a suggestion as how to pair the sprout.

Thanks in advance
