Home Assistant VM passthru Bluetooth dongle. Struggling

Recommended Posts

I am running Home Assistant in a VM. Works great but for one issue.


My bluetooth dongle is not recognised by Home Assistant, it seems to be recognised yet does not work.  There is scattered info in the forum on this issue or with other usb sticks but I have not been able to find a real solution.


I am using this USB stick, which is recognised by Home Assistant:  https://www.amazon.nl/dp/B0BXF13GB7


I installed Bluez (which I guess is not needed since I am using a VM), and I am passing thru the usb stick via the standard option in the VM's settings..


Is there any chance I can get this working or do I need to work around it ?


On the Home Assistant VM I get the following error message:  "Intel version event size mismatch"


ADDED: Seems like this is more of a Home Assistant bug... I will pursue a different route..
