    Hello

    Great app is RetroPie – however is the internal bluetooth supported with 3.6 and the new Pi3?
    I ask as when I go into the bluetooth settings I get a message on the log saying no bluetooth device found (as in bluetooth receiver)

    Checked and bluetooth works fine in Raspbian Jessie.

    Thanks.

    I think it’s because the RetroPie 3.6 image hasn’t been fully updated yet. I think when it will be released it will work fine. I want to use my PS4 controller via BT on the RPi 3.

    for the 3.6 image I only updated the firmware/kernel so it boots on the rpi3- it may lack a package or something – as soon as my rpi3 i setup I will be able to look into it.

    Awesome job getting Pi3 support so quickly. It’s already working pretty well, can’t wait for the next updates!

    Thanks! For some reason my PS3 controller isn’t working? Maybe I have more luck using BT.

    I have installed pi-bluetooth and my PS3 controller works well, but every time I reboot my Pi I have to pair again the controller using USB cable. Is there any solution to this problem? Thanks.
