You did the

 gpg-connect-agent updatestartuptty /bye

thing to tell gpg-agent where it shall pop up the pinentry?  Further
you can debug thing with adding "-v" to the gpg invocation or by letting
gpg-agent create a debug file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
log-file /foo/bar/gpg-agent.log
debug ipc
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Or use

log-file tcp://

and run "watchgnupg --tcp 40711" on the host with IP  Not TLS,
so take care.  But it is convenient to see what's going on.

Thanks for your other mail on thenneed to flush the firmware for the BT
device.  I have not yet found the time to do that, though.
