Bluetooth dongle problem

  • Hi,

    I have raspberry 3 pi b+ and recalbox 6.0 installed, but my bluetooth dongle not recognize. I want to pair my ps3 controllers at dongle because of the big delay.

    My dongle is a Chipset: CSR8510 and 4.0 version.

    Here, some comands and results at terminal:

    @tiagoko how are you trying to pair your controller?
    And why a bluetooth dongle with the rpi3b+? Imo, it works pretty well with the internal.

  • Hi @paradadf ,

    It's because of the delay comands.

    Let's me explain:

    When i press a Button, i have noted a delay to game response. It's not ocorred when i connected the controller at USB cable.

    i pair the controller connecting the cable USB, then i wait for 10 seconds and remove the cable. Few seconds after, the controler is paired. This don't connected when i plug bluetooth dongle, Just with internal Bt.

    sorry my english.

    @tiagoko I don‘t have the delay on the pi3b+, but only on the 3b. But ok. Why do you say your dongle isn‘t recognized? It appears to me it is working properly.

  • Not appear the Manufacturer from bluetooth dongle, so i think that i need install a driver to be recognized.
    When i tryied to start USB Bluetooth with comand hciconfig hci1 up, says that operation is not permited.

    And when i connect the dongle, the controller not pair with it.

    Do you know How configure and start Bluetooth?
