If you set "the usual" parameters in /boot/vc/config.txt (NOT the config.txt in the DOS partition which is also mounted as /boot/efi !) you will see decent screen stuff during boot. e.g. I have # Display settings hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=82 # Add sound over HDMI when group=2, except blows display as p...

Not directly relevant but may help you:
I added

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse conflict

If you are also using the onboard WiFi then yes, a known issue. Workaround is to use a USB dongle.

See my thread here.

Otherwise try browsing the troubleshooting forum, lots of pi3 BT issues there. Also recall someone else posting about Logitech, try a search there.

Re: Tethering through phone

Hotplugging often reboots the Pi, but when it hasn't, dmesg output hadn't changed. I'm thinking the B's power output limitations are causing the issues. Sounds like power to me. Think my LG G2 is a cousin of your Nexus 5 and it can suck 1A on charge. Only thought is to make sure the phone is fully ...

Yup, just add

Code: Select all

to /boot/config.txt to disable the onboard BT. You shouldn't need to do anything to enable a USB/BT dongle (I didn't).

As per jdb, if you are also using the Pi3 onboard WiFi then I suspect you have the same issues I put in my thread over here. The ongoing avoidance that works flawlessly for me is a BT dongle and disable the onboard BT.

Re: Pi3 and Rii bluetooth keyboard won't reconnect

Are you also using the Pi3 onboard WiFi? If so then, in my experience (and emw and AlessandroFerri) I believe there is no immediate cure as the Pi3 onboard WiFi & BT don't live in complete harmony - see thread here.

Using the onboard BT without the onboard WiFi should be no problem.
