  • Re: BM5 HDD to SSD the easy way

    After installing the SSD I have now enabled Power Save mode and disabled Music Server (DNLA) as the start-up time now is very acceptable compared to earlier. No need to have the harddrive and system running 24x7 anymore.

  • Re: BEOSOUND SHAPE : THE BEOWORLD REVIEW

    Congrats with it, it looks beautiful on your wall! I still have not heard the system in real, but both my wife and I like the concept of this music system. Actually. The more we see it, the better we like it, it kind of grows on us. So, to B&O from us:

    Hi Ruedi Thanks for your reply, my system is now running with the MX300 1TB disk, and your approach worked fine. For now at least I had a problem to format the drive to FAT32 in Windows 10, as new Windows 10 does not support FAT32 format options anymore. I tried to use the cmd prompt to format using FS:FAT32 but it failed after 14 hours......well, after using my Mac, I was able fo format the drive to FAT32 in 5 Minutes. Should have known that up front, ha ha. Cloning the drive took about 4 hours

  • Re: BM5 Temperature and failure.

    Living in Sydney with outside temps up to 40 Degrees, I have multiple times seen the BM5 be above 50 in my home, but until now not had a problem with it. I just replaced the harddrive to a SSD today and I will monitor if that has an impact on the temp of BM5.

  • Re: Spotify Connect is now on my BS5!!!

    Yes, I agree on that one. I have Spotify installed manually on the system, and the system has the default name BEOMASTER5 using Spotify Connect.

    However, we know that Spotify have turned off the API's that B&O "natively" used to connect to Spotify, but since the installed Spotify on the BM5 Windows XP system is working, I wonder what API the standard Spotify software is using and why B&O cannot use this.

    System has been running for 7 hours continuously now, listening to Radio and CD (N.MUSIC) and a bit A.AUX, everything is still running fine. And, wow, what a difference the SSD makes when browsing though my albums/songs, no delay or latency when scrolling over albums, I have around 22,000 songs, and there were always delays when scrolling/browsing. Even browsing through the PICTURES I have on BM5 vi my AppleTV on the Avant (using DNLA) is much more smooth. Should have done this much earlier.....

    You should just do a cloning to a 500 GB SSD which is quite a bit cheaper. I don’t know what happens if you clone from 500 to 1TB with the additional space.

  • Re: Beovision 14 Now Discontinued

    Well. I have the Avant mk1. The only part of the smart tv I am using is the YouTube app. For everything else I am using the new Apple TV (not 4K though), I am mainly using some tv apps, Media8 player and Infuse. And Airplay from time to time (used today to use the Avant tv showing maps over Wollongong area -near Sydney). I wonder what part of the smart tv people will be using in generally - and over time? Spending $200 (AUD) on a new Apple TV or something else seems much more future proof. Having

    [quote user="Peter the Biker"] Being delighted, cheerful and grateful to the BeoWorld team for the really amazing work in a difficult year, I wish you a better New Year. Peter Peter the biker [/quote] Congrats mate, I still love my BS5. I think it is a fantastic product that could have had a lot more presence and usage than we see today. But it is a great B&O product and maybe the last B&O music system with amazing aluminium handcraft and mechanical engineering.
