I have the same problem. Have you found a solution? I was reading about fake CSR and that it was necessary to recompile the Linux source code module. I can't give an UP on hci0 and it just stays on DOWN with the error Can't init device hci0: Operation not supported (95)

Didn't found any solution, gave up :)

I have a Bluetooth dongle that I want to use in a docker container. Docker requires that the Host OS install drivers for the device before it can be passed to the container.    Searching the

Correct.  We're adding bt kernel drivers in Unraid 6.7 release.

What do you need, just kernel driver support?

Hi

 

Same problem here :( With CSR dongle Bluetooth, Impossible to turn up the hci

I was happy to use unraid with docker containers to my domotics....

Impossible without the bluetooth integration.

 

Any solution on this topic?

Can we have this firmware also? Asus USB-BT400 Mini Bluetooth Dongle 4.0 LE. Seems to be most common nowdays that supports LE.

I have a CSR Bluetooth dongle (Cambridge Silicon Radio Bluetooth Dongle) that I want to pass trough to a Home Assistant VM, I can select it in the VM config but hassos does not find the device there,
Is that because firmware for CSR BT dongles are missing?

The problem is hassio, it doesn't support bluetooh usb stick, the only bluetooth that supports is the on in raspberry pi.

Hello, could you please add the firmware of this Bluetooth chip

https://linuxreviews.org/Realtek_RTL8761B

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl8761b-fw/

It is probably the most (if not the only one) bluetooth chip used in usb dongles that supports bluetooth 5.0

@limetech

 

Could you please include this binary? Is the most common chip for usb dongles with bluetooth 5

What products (dongle manufacturers) use this chip?
