GOOD NEWS,Tronsmart Prometheus will add bluetooth function

Postby geekbuying » Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:11 pm

Hi Guys:

I just get news from Tronsmart, they said they will add bluetooth function in their prometheus. they will update a new firmware in their site, and then suggest some working bluetooth dongle, just insert the bluetooth dongle, and it will work.

add bluetooth,and when xbmc for amlogic mx release, then this tv box will be a dream one :)

It's good to see that Tronsmart is actively maintaining/improving the Prometheus. I would have preferred for the Prometheus to have built-in BT but if it will work with a dongle I already have, that will be great.

yes, very good, most important thing is that they keep working on the box and support it!

The new firmware is available here: http://www.tronsmart.com/download.aspx

I installed it and it works great with a cheap little BT dongle I had laying around. I now have CT keyboard and mouse working on my Prometheus!

Hi all,

I have firmware with android 4.2.2 (latest firmware i believe), but bluetooth is not working. I am thinking that maybe my dongle is incompatible. Can anyone confirm that the on/off button under settings/bluetooth will be missing if the bluetooth dongle is incompatible or not present?

Also can anyone recommend a bluetooth dongle that works?

This is the bluetooth dongle i am trying to use: GENERIC USB BLUETOOTH 2.0 TINY V2.0 EDR DONGLE ADAPTER

Cheers,
Jesper

I think your out of luck here.

Tronsmart is already leaving behind this prometheus box.

They wont support it anymore.

Best advice, stay away from Tronsmart

Buy from Smallart or MiniX brand which both have good reputations!

Good luck my friend

I have a cheap, generic BT dongle and it works fine with my unit. Do you know for sure that the dongle you have is good? Have you had it working on another computer or device?

Hi,
I haven't tried it on other devices no, but I found another thread where they said Bluetooth was broken in the new firmware.
