Recalbox 6.1.1 loses two 8bitdo controls bluetooth connection.

  • Themer

    Good morning guys, Recalbox 6.1.1 is not allowing the native bluetooth connection of two 8bitdo controls, it keeps the connection but after a few minutes the connection is lost, the controls are with the latest firmware version, there is a solution or we will have to wait for a new update to resolve the issue? I appreciate the help.

  • Good luck trying to solve this on 6.1.1. I had to rollback to 6.1.0 (the previous version) which was working flawlessly with my 8bitdo controllers. I was lucky I had another rpi3 with 6.1.0 installed so I cloned my other card.
    I tried to install 6.1.1 from scratch on several cards and several rpi3 to no avail. Also tried connecting with bluetoothctl - it works but loses connection on reboot.
    So reinstalled 6.1.0 and everything is ok. Good luck trying to find the 6.1.0 to download though.

    Try to enable this option in recalbox.conf via winscp ou share network with notepad++ , not recalbox manager.
    reboot and forget gamepad, and try another sync BT and configure gamepad

    # -------------- D - Controllers ----------------- #
    # Enable support for standard bluetooth controllers
    # Enable ERTM
