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.

My dealer is going to inform B&O. I suggest to contact your dealer. The more complaints, the sooner it gets fixed.Smile

By the way, I understand that last weeks update should have ended connection problems between TV and remote. Unfortunately I noticed that this problem appears not to be solved.

I dont seem to have the same problems, which is odd.....

that said, i dont think the update has fixed everything.....i lost sound again yesterday, same as happened a few times before the update......

i presume you have sent a "usage report" to B&O from the tv..........? think it helps them resolve these issues......

And skip the remark about the remote. I just had a failure in the connection between the remote and TV again after the TV had been shut off for more than an hour. There is a bug in the communication between TV and remote!

Hi guys, 

Do you also have trouble using chrome cast? On my Horizon it doesn't seem to work. Furthermore I'm very happy about this new television. The software seems more stable after the update. Still work in progress though.

Regards, 
R.

Chromecast is something that does work on mine. The communication between iphone and TV via Chromecast (Deezer) is ok. However I would give it not 100% yet as bugs do appear. Sometimes you have to press the Chromecast logo on the screen of the iphone and select the Horizon to make the connection.

Thanks for your reply! What about Chrome cast video? Audio seems to work as well. But video seems to be the problem.
