From the Victron 712 Smart manual, below are the connections.  I assume that the VE.Direct (Terminal I) is where I could plug in the dongle which appears to also have a 4 wire flat "VE Direct" connector. 

That is correct, but you will end up with 2 Instances of the 712 on The Victron Connect app.

Are you having trouble receiving Bluetooth signals from your 712?  I thought it was from your DC-DC charger, which doesn’t have a VE.Direct port to my knowledge.  Victron did add a VE.Direct port to their newest DC-DC charger.
I have seen references to the Smart Dongle and the Smart Shunt connected together, but I don’t have either product, so no first hand experience.  All of the Victron devices that I have that also have a VE.Direct port, have male pins.  Does the Smart Dongle have a male or female VE.Direct connector?

No, it works great, just not to the TV.  Weak signal as we all know.

My Ollie not in Hawaii, so I am at a disadvantage of not being able to run out and take a peek.  But I do not recall seeing a 4-wire flat style connection on our Victron Orion 12/12 DC to DC unit.  Hence, it appears the only way will be to connect the to the 712 Smart Display.

I have as well, but from downloaded pictures from the web, our 712 Shunt does not have a connection for a 4 wire flat style Dongle plug.  It has a RG45, and a NO, a NC, and a Common port. Hence the only option I can research find is to the 712 display.
