  1. Hello. I would ask for Blackmagic Design Davinci Resolve Speed Editor.
    I have Dongle Plus Speed Editor.
    Davinci Resolv is installed with a computer with Windows 11

    Unfortunately, it works only on USB when you are connected does not work with Bluetooth.
    Although Davinci sees how many batteries remained in Speed Editor.

    I would like to ask how to solve the problem
    thank you
