Hi

From other treats I have read that I can update my Beolab 3500 SW 1.1 to 3.33 by changing a PCB board. Where can I buy this board, and is it easy to change?

I don't now if my answer is relevant to your question:

Asked my dealer a while ago (again) if my Beolab 2000 could be upgraded to accept 'A.AUX' from the IR-command. This time he contacted B&O and told me: there is no software update availlable for the Bl 2000 as it was with the BL 3500.

So I keep on pushing my bedrooms BV 3 into A.AUX and then walk to my bathroom to push the 'ON' button of my Bl 2000 in the bathroom. Embarrassed

Keeps my health in shape Crying

Thanks Chris, for the B&O fitness tips ;-)

 

I know that the Beolab 2000 are old, but it would be nice to upgrade their functionality. I guess there are more than enough of them sitting some where in homes waiting to arrive in the 21st century. :-)

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Indeed, its such a very fine sounding loudspeaker, fits so nicely in a lost corner of my bathroom...

Forget to mention: after switching the BL2000 on, I first have to go back into the bedroom to put the BV3 off. Hé,Hé. Lives easy with ML....
Dear MM and TWG, I can still go to the fitness afterwards, Beer

 

I really have to make some time changing the configuration of my ML and use the line-in of my new NL/ML converter. This would reduce all those steps to activate the sound coming from my Mac mini on the BL2000.
Removing the Mac mini from A-AUX on the BS3200, and configure the Mac mini on the NL/ML converter line-in input to VMEM (would be V-Tape button for the BL2000). And best of all, it would perhaps upgrade sound on the ML chain, putting one section (BS3200) out of this chain. I guess Line-in on the NL/ML converter injects the analog signal more or less directly into the ML-cable.

Keith has already given the answer and info about the latest actual SW3.3 for the beolab 3500 including the commands, take a look at the old forum http://archivedforum.beoworld.org/forums/t/36474.aspx

SW1.1 is till today still the actual software for the Beolab 2000, witch means there is no A-AUX button.

I am sure that B&O could bring the BL2000 to the same level as the BL3500, but age of the appliance and part price for the complete renewal of the PCB1 board, would not be a commercial step for the factory and to costly for customers. The microcomputer is located on PCB1, witch is a main board in the BL2000, as the microcomputer PCB36 in the BL3500 is only a small part.

I am using a BEO4, witch gives me the possibility to use all the normal buttons for daily use (tv, radio, V-mem, A-mem, dvd…). But I cannot use any of the added commands, as is A-Aux.

Listening to A-Aux is only possible with pushing the play-button on the BL2000 or mute-button on the BEO4, but A-Aux must already being started and playing somewhere in the ML link.

Hope to be of some help.
