Scanner connected via BlueTooth to POSBox not working

I installed and configured a bluetooth barcode reader to work with my POSBox which is running my receipt printer.  POSBox status page (image attached) appears to see it.  But when I try to look up products with it, I get the scan beep, but no numbers appear in the "search products" field on my tablet.  Receipts are printing.  

My understanding of POSBox is that it proxy's for the POS application.  Shouldn't there be a file I could tail or something to watch the input from the scanner?

Can't post a screenshot, here is the POSBox status

Hardware Status

The list of enabled drivers and their status

scale : disconnected

  • Scale Not Found

escpos : connected

  • Connected to Epson TM-T20II

scanner : connected

  • Connected to usb-0a5c_4502-event-kbd

Connected Devices

The list of connected USB devices as seen by the posbox

04b8:0e15 Seiko Epson Corp. 

0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

0a5c:4502 Broadcom Corp. Keyboard (Boot Interface Subclass)

0a5c:4503 Broadcom Corp. Mouse (Boot Interface Subclass)

Curious does anyone ever respond to these questions?  I've asked a few now with no response.  Is there a trick to getting anyone to reply?

Erik you're not getting much response on this because this is a very detailed problem and there probably isn't anybody using this setup yet (with a BlueTooth scanner). Do you get any errors in the Odoo logfile? Either way I don't think the PosBox can ever find the BlueTooth scanner..

Apologies I apparently posted my reply incorrectly and did it 3 times. Where is the log file you speak of.

Thank you for the response, I was getting frustrated with no replies.  I'm just working on the POSBox so I'm limited in my knowledge of Odoo.  Where is the log file and do I need to pull the log files from the Odoo server or just the POSBox.
