I was suprised yesterday that my Beoplay V1  presented me with the software update 1.0.11.37484 dated 01-09-2017. The release notes only says: Your TV is updated with new software.

Does anyone know what's in this software release or if there is any know problems with it before i install it?

In a way I'm impressed. The TV is over 5 years old and still getting updates.

Thanks in advance

Anyone who installed the update and uses Deezer?

Is Deezer HiFi already an option on these tv's?

(scroll down a bit).

Same here. But we use Deezer on our Sonos connected to the Beosystem 4. Better integration with i-devices...than using a TV.

My BV11 was updated this morning. Deezer works again directly from the remote control.

Same here - maybe I should consider reactivating my old Deezer Account ;-)

Then again - now I can start Spotify Connect on my Essence and listen on my V1 in the other room....

....either by joining-in or by using the app.

For people with e.g. a BV11 as their main/only system it is great that they reestablished Deezer support - after the Spotify app failure.

which other company would do that for a 4-5 year old tv?

Here is Spotify Connect playing on my V1:

I thought one of those latest update solves the problem of playing Losless Apple Audio files (m4a using ALAC) with my BV11.

When trying to play such a file my BV11 freezes.

Files are on my Synology NAS. Refering to https://www.bang-olufsen.com/~/mediaV3/Files/User-Guides/BeoVision11/Supported-Formats/Supported_formats-pdf.pdf it should work -or am i wrong?

Great Software update indeed!

 

I am really happy with the fact that we can now enjoy Spotify in multi-room across my Essence in the kitchen, and the V1/BL9's in the living room. Well done B&O.

 

I will now have to think whether I will cancel my Deezer subscription or not. I subscribed to Deezer, next to Spotify, to have multi-room capabilities. I can do the same now with Spotify!

Deezer offers the advantage of having a nice in-app experience with the B&O App (I am a beta user). Spotify still requires to work with two apps, or the Spotify App and the BeoOneRemote to join. So it is a bit less user friendly. On the other hand, I do like the spotify curated playlists better...

Choices, choices, choices,...

 

A bit of a related question: does B&O now also allow Spotify Connect in Multi-room between Essence and A6 or M5? Or is this not possible yet? I recall there were restrictions imposed by Spotify, which did not allow this. In case it is possible, I might go for an A6 or M5 in my study, and remove my Sonos installation

In the list of supported formats I see no support for ALAC. Data with the suffix m4a are not absolutely ALAC.

No, mine is working - just tried.

Is not very responsive, when you do a search - but one can get used to that....I guess.

Did you try to reboot the BV?

I did not do it/have to do it - but worth a try.

Hello Hiort

 

I had a similar experience the first time I tried to launch Deezer. 

However, it worked when I tried the next day, without doing any specific changes. Nevertheless, I find the Deezer App on the V1 very slow and not userfriendly. I prefer joining the V1 to Deezer on my Essence, using the App. Works much faster!

You‘re right. There‘s nothing about Apple Lossless.

So i think i ripped my CDs Lossless and the BV could not play these. So sad.

Deezer on my V1's not working, just black screen. Trying for several days now and sometimes the message "service not available" appears, somethimes just nothing.

Deezer on Horizon and Moment is working just fine so no internet thing. Any ideas what can cause this? For my V1's Deezer is not that important because they join in on multiroom play from Moment, but strange that some of the members have no problem activating Deezer and others seems to just cannot get it to work.

Before I re-activate my Spotify Premium account I would like to know if the new Spotify Connect feature on V1/BV11 will work with a Beoplay M5 in a multiroom setup. Has anyone tried this?
