Bluetooth adapter not found

  • Using LibreELEC 8.0.1 on my Asrock Beebox n3150. It's equipped with bluetooth, however i'm not able to use it with LibreELEC. It always worked on OpenELEC.

    Any ideas on how to fix this ?

  • I cannot see any evidence of a BT chip in the lspci/lsusb output and dmesg shows nothing about BT devices - the last few lines are standard kernel log spew and don't mean anything. Identifying the chipset inside is the first stage of figuring out what's needed. If you have any output from an OE install that works, it would be useful.

  • It would mean i'd have to install OE on my Beebox, losing LE data. Can I easily create a backup from LE ?

  • Looks like we need to update the misc-firmware package to include various newer firmwares. It's an easy fix for LE 8.0.2.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like rtl8821a_fw.bin (the one used for his BT chip) has not been updated in 2 years, so updating misc-firmware won't help. I did a quick google search and didn't come up with any later revision either. Perhaps some kernel option is missing for it to load properly?

  • hammerboy.. please test this image Index of /test/ and report back, it has updated misc-firmware. NB: It's tagged as 8.0.2 but don't read anything into the version number; release is a way off yet.

  • hammerboy, that image is updated with a large patch from OE's collection that probably solves a bug in the driver. Test again and report back.

    Did 8.0.1 alter much code to do with bluetooth, compared with 7.0.3? I'm having issues with my setup since updating to 8.0.1.

  • I've with bluetooth at my asrock Beebox the same problem. Did you have any succes?


    JiRo no success so far. Plugged in an old Bluetooth dongle which was recognized immediately.

    LibreELEC (Krypton) v8.0.2 MR brings an update to Kodi v17.3, improved support for Intel WIFI and Bluetooth devices, and minor nip/tuck fixes for user-reported issues since v8.0.1.


    Unfortunately, with LE 8.0.2, my bluetooth detection problems still aren't resolved.
