Trying to program ESP32 Bluetooth Proxy OTA

I keep getting messages that the YAML is not compiling. How can I debug this?


By looking at the logs :slight_smile:

If you want some help we need your YAML and logs, none of us have working Crystal Balls…

Please format both the YAML and the logs correctly so that it’s readable:

That being said, from what I can see it looks like it’s running as it should. What are you expecting it to see via BT? Do the devices actually have a Home Assistant integration?

Where are you seeing this and what are the exact error messages?

Thank you for your time.

I copy/pasted from: homeasstant: settings → Devices & Services → ESPHome → Bluetooth Proxy Device → Visit → Logs → Wirelessly. The issue I have is that I can not update the firmware OTA, I have to plug in.

I will format both the YAML and the logs later and reply with that.

My apologies! I am pretty new to this.

Also; what log file can I open to see what the error is?

Post that message
