The BeoSound 5 must be set to audio master in the settings in order to access the aux input of the BeoSound 5. You can only have one audio master in a master link system. Maybe you have both the BeoSound 5 and the BeoCenter 2 connected to the ML and have the BeoCenter 2 set as audio master instead of the BeoSound 5?

The phono sockets on the back of the BeoMaster 5 are not audio inputs. You need to purchase an adaptor to use the USB input. You can purchase this device made by Behringer U-CONTROL UCA 222.

Installed one yesterday (along with a Playmaker).

That definitely works - and it is also the official recommendation from B&O.

Please note, that if you intend to connect the audio of a tv this way, you will probably run into sync problems due to rhe processing of the sound in the connection chain.

Hi MM,

Yes, you are quite correct, the Beomaster 5 processing causes a delay to sound that comes in through the USB input, which will cause lip-sync issues if you try to connect a non-B&O TV this way.

The only solution to this is to buy a Beolink Converter from Bang & Olufsen (type 1161166) and connect this to the Beomaster 5 with a Masterlink cable: http://soundsheavenly.com/48-masterlink-control-and-sync

You can  connect the headphone output of the TV into the B&O converter with this cable:- 

http://soundsheavenly.com/bang-olufsen/67--trs-5pd-.html

You can then listen to the TV through the Beomaster 5 without an audio delay by pressing “TV” on your B&O remote control.

Kind regards, Steve.

Steve you have just solved my ultimate problem for non B&O TVs! Thank you!!!

But now that the 1161166 converter uses the Masterlink slot from the audio system, how can I incorporate this converter into a whole masterlink for that 1 specific non B&O TV? Can I just patch the 1161166 converter into the RJ45 Masterlink patch like below?
