Pair Rii Mini i8 with t5

#1
I'm trying to pair my Rii mini i8 with the t5. I get as far as the i8 is discovered and connected with the t5, but then it fails in pairing.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
TIA

What is happening is
Go to Settings -> Add accessory -> Then enabled pairing on the Rii i8+ and it showed up in the device list as “Bluetooth 3.0 Macro Keyboard”.
I clicked on it, then the text went from “Pairing…” to “Connecting…” and then “Couldn’t pair”.

I suspect there is a problem with the Bt stack since it pairs perfectly with my Samsung s7 edge

Hi thanks for the reply. I'm aware of the recommendation and I'm already using the android app. It's working OK, I just prefer anothet way of controlling my t5.
I was, and still am, using the Rii mini 8+ with my other minix. The U1 and its working great. I gather the implementation of the bt stack is different. Is that something that's going to be changed in a future update?

Just to add to the above. I have the A2 lite and I really don't like the feel of the keyboard that's the reason I didn't buy the A3 remote

No, we have no immediate plans to improve the compatibility with other remotes.
