No Bluetooth option in XL [Answered: needs a Pi 4]


I have an Allo USB signature with a TP Link Bluetooth 5.0 adapter plugged in.

When I run Ropieee XL 4.017,

I don’t see the Bluetooth option. For reference this is the first time I’ve attempted to use the Bluetooth functionality.

Any help would be great :smiley:

I have the same issue.

Is it a Pi 4?

I think it’s this, Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Plus Rev 1.0

Which I am now suspecting doesn’t support Bluetooth 5…

RoPieee only supports bluetooth on the Pi 4.

Ah, ok. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll need to get a newer Pi.


Hi Harry

I do have a Pi4 and the Bluetooth setup isn’t showing. What do I need to do?


Same issue as Bevan. Have a Pi4 rev 1.5, but no bluetooth tab.
I’m pretty new to this, so unsure if i need to enable it somehow or how this works?

It’s probably related to a new revision of the Pi 4 that’s not in the whitelist of RoPieee.

However, this is not something that will be fixed: a new release of XL is imminent and that release will drop support for bluetooth.
