Hi all. I have had the Beivision 5 unit for some time now and have experienced the frustrations of tech moving with the times. I have used Apple TV via a Keene scart converter for example for years.
But recently I decided to give the Amazon Fire TV a whirl but even via a HD video converter I seem to struggle to get it to work.
is anyone else succeeding with this?
Am I using the right or wrong converter?
Beosystem 4 with Beolab 7-2 on table stand (Center), Beolab 8000 (Fronts), Beolab 4000 (Rears) and Beolab 2. Screen: Sony 55W905A. BeoVision 4-50 HD ready (D9) with Beosystem 3 MK I with Beolab 7-2 and Loewe L1 via Beolink Passive Amp. Beovision 7-40 MK III on motorised stand with Beolab 7-2. Beosound 9000 MK3 on horizontal wall bracket with Beolab 5000 Speakers. Beovox Cona + Beovox CX100 White with Yamaha Stereo with Bluetooth dongle for iPhone/iPad. In storage: Beolab 5000/Beomaster 5000.
I use one of these connected to the side panel (composite connections)
I notice it's listed as currently unavailable, but there must be something v similar out there. I use it for my amazon fire stick and it works well. I do get a bit of a 'buzz' at high volume but otherwise it's good! The problem I had when I installed it was picture and no sound-it was solved by connecting the box to the mains electricity by the included usb adapter plug. So far, it's worked well enough for me to hold of purchasing a newer Beovision!
