Recalbox bluetooth dongle



  • I ve search online and havent found a solution for recalbox.

    All my bluetooth controllers have latency when using the internal bluetooth on recalbox raspberry pi 3

    I ve read online. That using a bluetooth dongle fixes this.

    So i went ahead and bought a dongle which is compatible.

    Ive got 2 sf30 pro controllers from 8bit i wanna use. And i dont know how to set them up using the bluetooth 4.0 dongle that i bought. Nwither if there is a way to turn off the internal bluetooth.

    I tried them using the internal bluetooth but there was still latency on button presses. Which kills any platformer.

    Any solutions on how to set up the bluetooth dongle? Its a generic crs 4.0 bluetooth

    Thanks for the help



  • @pguerrero few pro tips:

    • disable onboard wifi (which is done by editing the config.txt), this improves rather well bt performance
    • eventually disable onboard bt (same way)

    USB BT dongles are prioitary over internal BT as they are set up much earlier.

    Now what you must do:

    • reset ypur pads (if you need help, check the 8bitdo or our wiki)
    • forget bt devices inside recalbox
    • reboot
    • pair again


  • @substring i am unable to find the config.txt using the command line.

    I f4 out of recalbox

    Alt f2 into command line

    Put in credentials

    Then when i try to do the whole mount i start getting confused



  • @pguerrero you need to mount -o remount, rw /boot then edit /boot/config.txt
