Description

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Dolphin resets previously paired wiimotes with other software like touchmote.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Pair your wiimote TR or non TR) with touchmote with the sync button. Once paired, turn off wiimote with power button or remove batteries. Turn on wiimote again pressing ANY button, wiimote will connect to Touchmote.

This behavior will work everytime UNLESS you lauch dolphin. Once you launch dolphin, you will have to repair with Touchmote after using them with dolphin on non passthrough mode.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

All version starting from 5.0 have this problem. Even latest build

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yes. On 5.0 and on.

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

[First broken version number here (if applicable)]

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

i5 11400
RTX3060
TP LINK UB400

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)

Since most emulators now uses wiimotes for lightgun and other stuff, making loss pairing, will kill the experience. Just by launching dolphin, previously paired with touchmote wont wotk and you have to resync all the wiimote. No need to even connect them to dolphin, just opening dolphin and you are done. Been using the paired with touchmote for 3 months and always pair with any button. But never launched dolphin in thos 3 months, it´s the only way to keep them paired.

Tried to disable every dolphin bluetooth capability and the problem persist. Seems to be not present on dolphin 4.0
