I have a Beovision 7 32 Mk3 connected to a Beosound 9000 via beolink.
I have a pair of Beolab 1 connected to the Beousound 9000 so I configured the TV and the Beosound as option 1.
I have as well a PC connected via DVI+RCA to the Beovision.
I would like to listen to the audio signal from the PC in the Beolab 1so I was expecting to achieve that using AV-PC on the Beo4 but it doesn't work (just nothing happens).
Beolink works fine since when I press AV + DVD I can listen to the DVD in the Beolab speakers with the screen off.
Any idea of why AV-PC doesn't work? Any suggestions to make this work?
BeoNut since '75
Sign the pc to a.mem or some other source. I am almost sure I was told my customer support that sound from PC does not travel over masterlink. I simply changed to a.mem, and the problem was solved.
>> Does PC result in the BV behaving as a monitor and displaying the PC's screen ?
Exactly. I don't even have antenna connected but see all my favourite channels via internet on a web browser.
>> Does the PC's audio play at that point ?
Absolutely, the minijack audio output from the PC is connected to the 2 RCA inputs in the Beovision which are associated to the DVI input (as mentioned in the TV user guide)
>> What sort of PC is it ?
It is an intel NUC. Extremely small, powerful and silent. I have one HDMI output connected to the Beovision and a second one to a video projector.

You are probably right since I see no other reason why it doesn't work.
I can't help keep thinking about what is then the Beo4 option "AV-PC" intended for?

I think that in that way I would loose the audio while in "PC" mode.
The PC command does travel over masterlink but your Beosund 9000 is probably to old to understand the command, my Beolab 3500 from 2008 understand PC from my BV7 but my Beolab 2000 from 2003 and my Beomaster 7000 doesn't
