Bluetooth remote (M8S Pro L)


I’ve just bought a M8S Pro L with the bluetooth voice remote. Is it possible to get the remote working with Coreelec using bluetooth?
IR works but has its limitations. The remote is visible in the BT settings and I can connect to it (although no response from key presses from remote), but after a couple of seconds the remote disconnects.

I’ve read about the Xiaomi MiBox Bluetooth remote working with libreelec using some SSH commands. Tried those but without any luck.

Any ideas? Possible at all?
I understand that voice commands will not work but thats fine.
