Hello,

First, thanks for your answer.

 

But I am looking for something more detailed. Is it something you plug and it works? No configuration needed?

Kind regards,

Didier

Thanks for a very good document. I have two additional questions that I couldn't find an answer for.

1. Is it possible to control the BLC from the MLGW if you connect speakers to the BLC (and use it as a Beolink active)?

2. Can you send the AUX (line in) to the ML and listen to that source in other room (for example Beolink active)?

The BLGW will not act as an active type system similar to the NL converter.

You can share the source from a NL converter to a ML based system as long as the source name isn't already in use on the ML system.

Ah, you know... A little B&O here, a little there

mjmedio,

Thank you for this link.  I have been waiting to see this document for a long time.  I now know why the converter is priced at around $1000 USD.

It use to be that a Bang and Olufsen system regardless of price was relatively easy to setup for the average user.  This is not the situation anymore.

I meant if the BL/ML converter (BLC) count be controlled by MLGW in the same way as a Beolink active can when you have attached speakers to it. Or is it only IR control that is possible?

Don't have MLGW but control my Converter (with speakers attached) via B&O smartphone app (no IR) so can't imagine MLGW would be any different?

Converting from one analog based protocol to another - like with the old ML/MCL Converter - is not a big problem.

Converting from the (ML) analog protocol to (NL) digital protocol and vice versa is much more complicated.

The current B&O setups can include quite a lot of different (new and old) products, that we (as costumers) expect to work seamlessly together.

Of course this makes it rather complicated to set up - especially in bigger setups. Normally an experienced installer should do this, which is the reason, why the manual is not online on the B&O site.

And then there is the benefit of the included 'Active Link function'. And the possibily for online updates.

These things must lead to a relatively high price.

We should be gratefull, that 'our company' has invested quite a lot of time and manpower to make older and newer A/V products compatible as far as possible.

Which other company would do this? 'Throw your older gear in the bin and buy new stuff instead' seems to be the motto of most other electronic product manufacturers.

You can use the beoremote app to select source etc.

Any network link source will function from beoremote. (I think)

You won't get any macros or scenes etc.

All the beoremote will do is work the active kit section of the converter. The converter is much more than an active kit though.

Hello,

 

I have a question concerning the Network link. I understood that it is important to have another router that the ISP router to isolate the internet traffic from the Beolink traffic. 

I have a NAS. If I am referring to the document, the NAS shall be connected to the Beolink network. The NAS will be visible from my Beovision but now it won't be visible from my computer which is on another subnet.

How to configure the Beolink router to give access to the NAS from another subnet in my network?

Thank in advance for your help.

Didier
