BT dongle not working with A95X B7N

My box doesn’t have built in BT (A95X B7N).
I purchased from Amazon a BT 4.0 USB dongle:
Tianlong Mini Bluetooth Adapter Bluetooth Transmitter, Bluetooth 4.0 USB 2.0 CSR 4.0 Receiver Dongle Adapter, for PC Laptop Win XP Vista 7 8 10.

It claims to be this:

Item Name: Bluetooth Adapter
Chip: CSR8510
Bluetooth Version: Bluetooth V4.0+EDR V2.1/2.0/3.0
Interface: USB 2.0
Frequency Range: 2.400-2.480GHz

I’m running coreelec 9.2.5 with autoupdate on.

When I check, bluetooth says that no adaptor is found.

lsusb returns:

So, I have dmesg output, but it is rather long. I have a BT5 dongle arriving Monday (different make/model).

Anything to try to get this one working?

Thanks all


Bought an Asus BT400 - works perfectly.
