Looking for the easiest way to permanently "store" the sound settings on the Beovision Avant 2014 when listening to Deezer. I would like the sound to come only through the connected Beolabs instead of both the Beolbs and the sound bar of the Avant. Thank you in advance for any guidance.

Source List -> Deezer -> red button -> advanced settings  -> -> speaker group.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Is Deezer working on your Avant 2014? My Avant doesn't load the Deezer, when I try to use it. Only the screen with the DEEZER Logo ist displayed.

Yes, Deezer with a Premium + account  will slowly load on the Avant 2014. About a week ago, B&O Support answered my frustration with Deezer that I was trying to load directly through the Beoremote MUSIC source list. Sometimes it would load and more often not. What B&O recommended and now works but somewhat slowly is to access Deezer app through WEBMEDIA:

1. On the Beoremote 1, click on TV and scroll until you find WEBMEDIA.

2.Once the WEBMEDIA page comes up on your television screen, you will need to click on APP GALLERY.

3. When APP GALLERY opens up, change the setting to INTERNATIONAL (small green icon at bottom of screen). After you change to the INTERNATIONAL setting, the Deezer app should appear and you can log into your Deezer account. You can subscribe to a free 15 day trial. After that it is $9.99/month in the USA.

Again, the app is still slow compared to the speed of Spotify opening, but at least it eventually opens. Hope that my directions are not confusing and that I have been somewhat helpful.

This 'issue' is the main reason why I ditched Deezer and concentrated on Spotify (Connect) for my main music device = the Essence.

If the Deezer app was acting as should be on my V1, I probably would have given Deezer another go.

Hi,

I was curious about the BeoSystem4 / BeoVision11 / V1 & Deezer issue and wrote to BeoCare.

Their first answer was, that their technicians are aware of an issue which causes the BeoSystem4 service not to work when Deezer is selected directly as a source, and they are expecting an update of the Deezer app. Until the Deezer update will be available, I should select Deezer via WebMedia.

Then I wanted a confirmation, that there will be a Deezer update for the BeoSystem4. Their reply was not that promising: BeoCare confirmed that the issue was reported to Deezer, but that they are unable to say whether and in such case when it will be fixed.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Best regards

Interesting that when one goes to purchase a television or sound system at a B&O store that the limitations of both Spotify and Deezer are never brought up or their current limitations are not fully presented.
