I'm unable to run the update for the speed editor. Window comes up with the update notice, select continue but update doesn't start. Also unable to run the Control Panels App, splash screen briefly displays and goes away. A check with task manager doesn't show it as a running program or process.
I'm not using bluetooth and the speed editor is connected via USB and seems to be working just fine. Same behavior after a restart.
V17.4.1
Thanks

@Rob578
I have a similar problem. I started a new topic earlier - perhaps I shouldn't of. I wouldn't have had to worry about spelling Build.......

The speed editor works but I don't know whether it has been updated.

@stan willis

I'm at 17.4.1 Build 4

Hard to believe we're the only two with this issue. I've stopped all background programs but no go.
It's behaves like there's another instance of the App running.

Maybe someone will mosey along that has seen this behavior before. Not a big deal as everything "seems" to be working for now.

Unfortunately the Bluetooth connection is still not working anymore. It used to work fine, but I'm unable to establish this particular connection since months. Running Resolve 17.4.2 at the moment, Windows 10. The only thing that has improved is that in the Bluetooth settings, the device is described as paired. Of course I tried everything imaginable with unpairing, rebooting, all the routine that makes dumb devices work again. The former error was that in the Bluetooth settings the device switched between paired and unpaired. This has been resolved some time ago. But, unfortunately, in my case at least, did not change the connectivity problem.

It's not an issue, of course the Speed Editor works when connected with an USB cable, and that's what counts in the end. Such a great tool, makes work so much easier. Again many thanks to BMD for creating such an useful tool. Since its release I can't imagine working without it - it has become an integral part of my workflow.

It just would be nice to have a Bluetooth connection without occupying a USB port or even having to use a USB hub when there are no ports left. I might add that since months I have only one laptop for work, the connectivity may be different if I had another machine to test. So it's probably only an isolated issue that doesn't pose a problem for other users.

Reinstalling the operating system, testing with other machines, would certainly provide more information why the Speed Editor won't work with Resolve in my current situation.

Is there a changelog for the recent Speed Editor update?
I tend towards the "If it ain't broke..." mentality.

I'm happy to report that after unpairing the Speed Editor, and pairing again, the connectivity problem is solved now. The same machine, the same Operating System. The distance from the Speed Editor to the computer was a bit shorter this time. Maybe one has to reposition the Speed Editor before re-pairing? I don't know.

Now it connects via Bluetooth when Resolve starts. Glad it's working again.

I have found that the SE firmware since 17.2.2 causes my SE to freeze in Bluetooth mode once it has gone to sleep and reawakens. When I perform the firmware upgrade, it works fine in Bluetooth initially. I tried it once per day for several days and it continued to work. However, when I let it sit for several days and go to sleep, when I woke it up, it would say that it is connected in the Windows Bluetooth control panel, and the lights come on when I launch Resolve, but nothing on the panel works in Resolve. If I relaunch Resolve with the panel connected through USB, it works fine. No combination of removing the Bluetooth connection or resetting the panel will make it work once it has stopped. I have to reset Resolve back to 17.1 and reinstall the earlier version of the firmware on the panel. The firmware that comes with 17.1 works in Bluetooth without any problems.

I had similar problem with a USB connected Speed editor, one time it works the other it doesn't,
even a shut down of Resolve, and then I got a warning from Win defender : not allowed connection !
A shame I didn't made a screen shot.
Bud I made the adjustment and so far so good.

I'm fully updated, but continue to experience Speed Editor dropouts and failures. It will just inexplicably quit, even after working perfectly for an hour or so. I gave up and connected it with USB. Seems better now.

I am new here and just installeer a fresh Davinci Resolve 17.4.3 (DVR). And connected the speed editor.
On my iMac Pro with Big Sur it is connected in the Bluetooth Preference. After start DVR it didn't work. After connecting it with USB-C is was showing up and it was working in DVR. There was also a update which is installed. But when I Remove the USB-C Cable it did not work inside DVR, Removed from Bluetooth Preferences Reinstalled again. Restart the iMac Pro and it wa sin Bluetooth Preference. Started DVR and no control console (The battery 'Speed Editor" was not showing up) Conecting with USB-C and it was working.
I have also a new MacBook Pro M1 Max. And there it is working perfect.

So why is it not working on Bluetooth om my iMac Pro (Big Sur)

Three days into my USB connected Speed Editor and all my previous troubles have vanished. Frustrating dropouts, stalls, outright failures have all been replaced with stable, reliable performance. I can even leave Resolve running overnight and the SE remains connected and functional immediately.

On my relatively robust and fairly new system, Bluetooth is just too flaky for this vital connection.

Just like on some PCs, the BT of older Macs is not always good enough. Some folks had success using external BT sticks. BT on the new MacBooks seems to be quite robust. I got an ergonomic mouse here that often lost its connection with my old iMac, but never does with my current machine.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.

As a modest contribution, here attached are the only instructions that actually really work! At least they did here:

Re: Speed Editor: unable to connect by bluetooth
Wed Dec 29, 2021 2:31 am
In macOS Preferences > Bluetooth, when using the "Connect" contextual menu item does the Speed Editor connect successfully?
Does the device name change from "DaVinci Keyboard" to the device's Address (e.g. AA-00-BB-11-22-3C) when connecting?
Does a "Connection Request" window appear when connecting the Speed Editor?
Connection Request.png (33.64 KiB) Viewed 102 times

If the request is not appearing or the connection fails, reset macOS Bluetooth configuration.
Finder > Go menu > Go To Folder or Shift+Command+G: /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist
Delete that file and reboot.
Connect the Speed Editor via Bluetooth and pair. Does Resolve now see the Speed Editor in Preferences?
