Hi Matt,

I hope you're having a good weekend. I have a dilemma and hope you can steer me in the right direction. I have a Asus chomebox with LibreElec (Krypton 17.1) installed and it's working great (dual boot if that matters).

I was playing around with an Amazon Fire TV remote and was able to connect it to my chromebox via bluetooth. The issue arises when i restart the box. The AFT remote doesn't pair or connect when LibreElec loads again. I have to manually unpair it and pair it again for it to function.

Any ideas? Would I have to get a separate bluetooth dongle for it to work properly? Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Bluetoot...oth+dongle

Cheers,

Cheers,

when pairing the remote with the Chromebox, are you using the 'trust and connect' option in the BT settings? That's what you need to be doing. BT remotes work fine with the built-in BT on the Chromebox; I use a PS3 BT remote for testing and a Logitech Harmony hub in BT mode on my main setup
