[pulseaudio-discuss] Selecting Airplay as PiulseAudio Sink

I borrowed an Airport Extreme device (it's a fairly new version) from a 
friend with the intent of testing if it works with pulseaudio.

The AEX is connected to the network and I can see it using 
avahi-discover, and also on the "Output Devices" section of "Volume 
Control" in padevchooser. However, it does not show up in the "Default 
Sink" section so there is no way for me to select it as the sink. What 
am I missing here?

Note that I can use raop_play to play files to the AEX so it doesn't 
appear to be a connectivity problem on the AEX side.

I am using pulseaudio 0.9.22 with the raop and zeroconf modules listed 
in system.pa. The output of list-sinks in pulseaudio -C does contain an 
entry for the AEX:

     index: 4
     name: <raop.Base-Station-6bded3.local>
     driver: <module-raop-sink.c>
     state: SUSPENDED
     suspend cause: IDLE
     module: 30
         device.string = ""
         device.intended_roles = "music"
         device.description = "ar_airplay"
         device.icon_name = "audio-card"

I tried to manually set the Default Sink to 
raop.Base-Station-6bded3.local but that didn't work.
