Bluetooth keyboard pairing problems
« on: October 15, 2015, 11:57:01 AM »
Recently I tried to pair a cheap Maxxter bluetooth keyboard with the Cood-e. The pairing was successful, however Cood-e did not respond to any keyboard input (it work without problems with a PS3). Not only that but the fact it was paired caused a lot of CPU load to the point I couldn't play video anymore (massive amounts of stutter).

So, then I tried to unpair the keyboard, but found out you can't do that with the remote control! Seriously, you should try this yourself: it's not possible to activate the "configure" button in the BT setup screen. I think it's weird there are still parts in the UI that need you to connect a mouse to be able to use it. I managed to do it by using my Logitech remote and pressing '0' for mouse cursor, but it shouldn't be like that.

We just did some testing with Logitech keyboards, for example the K380
And it has no problem pairing and using at all, trying to investigate more.

Will let know a update asap.

It's a KitKat 4.4.2 common bug..
Almost all low powered BT keyboards (lowbudger) are pairing and after that are listed as connected in Android but Android isn't registrating / recognizing any keys hit on the BT keyboard..
The problem is Android isn't switching or recognizing the keyboard as a HID device and therefore it doesn't switch from the on-screen virtuals touch keyboad (like AOSP keyboard to the physical hardware layout / setup as active keyboard input..
So it stays connected but through BT only its not active as input device in the android part..

Logitec etc. Are adding a driver/there own layout for the keyboard when using their bt hardware so the don't need the missing software the lowbuget ones do need.
And therefore the boards liks logitec etc. Do work..
