bt dongle

Post by kefcom » Thu Jan 24, 2019 7:21 pm

Hey all,

I'm having a bit of issues with my bt dongle. I suspect it's not a 'real' CSR8510.
on this page (https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Bluetooth_dongle) I read that there is a program called gimx-bluetooth to check this. However I can't seem to find that program :roll:

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

After installing GIMX, type in a terminal:

Code: Select all

hcirevision hci0
Expected result:

Code: Select all

	Chip version: CSR8510

Thanks man,

it's telling me it can't read version info for hci0: network is down (100).
gimx launcher bt pairing doesn't show the manufacturer anymore, it used to tho'. It said cambridge silicon radio ltd.

I'll take a look at it later, but progress is happening for sure 8-)

Thanks for the support

hah, so it IS a csr8510 :D for some reason bt is dissabled at boot. After I used /etc/init.d/bluetooth start it was showing up.
So now I got to work on making sure bt is enabled at boot. Shouldn't be too hard to find.
little steps... little steps :)
