A Bluetooth NVidia Shield driver is HERE
Few weeks ago i posted this sneak peak...
Since I just couldn't stand the fact that Shield Bluetooth support was promised, but never delivered. So I started a long... long... quest online and spend no less then 200 hours researching over the past few weeks, learning a lot about Bluetooth GATT profiles, services, characteristics etc. etc.
In the end i managed to make it work; and the driver is now on GitHub!

Darren Greenberg Personally, I consider a Logitech hub to be the easiest way to realize this because the NEEO Brain itself cannot use Bluetooth because of discontinued development. The Logitech hub can be paired easily as a normal remote with the Amazon Fire TV via Bluetooth. The only thing you have to do then is to send the commands from NEEO via forward actions to a system that passes the command to the Logitech Hub. You can do this, for example, with a Raspberry with a PHP server or a home automation software that forwards the command from NEEO and passes it to the Logitech Hub. I myself use Symcon and IPSymconNEEO with IPSymconHarmony to remotely control a Fire TV in another room via a Logitech Hub via Bluetooth with an NEEO Remote.
Hello Gilles van den Hoven Are you still there? Can you please advise on how to install the driver SDK?
I managed to pair up the the Shield with the PI but still stuck on getting the driver in the BRAIN.
Doing an "npm run index.js" doesn't yield anything but error. How far am I too off?
Or do I have to do it on the whole folder?
Gilles van den Hoven ,
I guess you are busy and most likely forgot about my request. Am sorry about that.
But here goes : In the files hosted on Git hub miss the critical files and/ or folder namely "peripherals" as shown in your last video posted here : https://gopro.com/v/DbW4rZbP1NlQo which are of the NEEO driver side of things.
Of course I know you mentioned that you don't develop for NEEO anymore but what has one got to do to get hold of this driver before the NEEO dies? 😟
It's sad that no so many realized how amazing the all in one Nvidia SHEILD is and we all missed the plot!
Else, do I have to contact you privately about this?, because I didn't get a response at Git Hub. Pleas advise.
Gilles van den Hoven ,
When I run npm i in the neeo-driver-nvidia-shield cloned folder. here is the log :
