Considering that both the BV14 and Beovision Horizon have been out for several weeks there's been very little feedback on this forum!  Does anyone have either and is in a position report how they have got on?  Or is everyone hanging on for the anticipated new TVs next summer?

I am in the market for a new B&O TV and would like to purchase this side of Xmas.  I have been very disappointed with 'android' in the past (albeit with a tablet), hence I am particularly interested in the new android interface and whether the SW runs well?

Anyone?

I have just been informed that there indeed is a bug in the audio-part of the software and that this will be rewritten. As the connection with the Beoremote One BT concerns; there should not be a connection issue. B&O thinks the problem should be within the TV and that the TV should be shut off from power for a time (+ half an hour). Afterwards the remote should not have connection issues anymore.

I have been using the BV 40 since launch and I do have many software glitches which none of the updates have solved yet.

I am also waiting for update to connect to my wireless speakers eg beosound 1. The TV stops at times without any reason, the TV guide crashed all the time. Sometimes you switch it on and the remote is bklocked after which you have to unplug and plug it again. I can go on and on ...

Dealer says updates are coming and it will take time. Is okay for me but my wife hates it.

Worst is that netflix app does not work on the beovision. 

My dealer told me that B&O recommends to use apple tv. Some argue between B&O and Netflix.

Unbelieveable. I have a subscription with Netflix, I should be able to use it.

The TV itself looks very very nice but is too buggy if you ask me.

I give it another month or so, if the Android glitches are not solved soon I will return it.

good luck

As said before: at this stage you have to contact your dealer. He passes your serial number through to B&O and subsequently the update will be transferred to your Beovision. I guess it wil take a few weeks before the update is automatically transferred to all the NG Beovisions.

Gennaro:

Just curios, does the new BT Beoone remote control a PS4? Beovision 11-55, BeoPlay V1 40, Beosound 9000, Beolab 8000's and 3 Beocom 5's...

I asked the dealer. He said no.

not like that no....regular HD content from Sky has been absolutely fine....the only issue i have had, picture quality wise, is with something i watched on Amazon Prime.....a couple of dark scenes looked badly defined, no blue bands per se, but definition wasnt good.....i'll post a picture later....

I have the Horizon. Really like how it looks on the wall. It has some softwarebugs as mentioned but its a nice TV. Dealer said that multiroom will be added next month. Picture quality very good. A very nice overall package.

Sibbi and Sandy, what do you mean by when you say multi room is not currently active?

Is that sound or ?

There is no multi room of any kind....so the matrix capability is greyed out, and from an audio point of view swell the BV14 does not appear in any of the Beo apps......so can't audio share the BV14 to my A9 for example.....all of this will follow in the November update (though again, the November update is estimated date)........the lack of matrix ability may not bother some, the lack of audio sharing will likely bother more people for now.......long story short, all of the usual functionality will arrive, and is set up on the OS in a very similar way to the previous environment, just that bits of it will be enabled later.......

you can google cast to the TV i think......

agreed, and viewed from a certain angle, it is surprising B&O can get away with releasing a slightly incomplete product....you wouldnt buy a 911 with 6th gear missing a future update.......anyway, maybe other set makers do as well, though i suspect not, but there you go....but again on the other hand, given the sound and multi room functionality (eventually) i'm prepared to be patient.......its a mighty fine looking tv after all......

This update will not add matrix support- that's for the bigger update in November or whenever it arrives
