2 Weeks with beovision eclipse 55.

g

Great picture . (well its the LG C7 panel) Great sound. Nice motorised stand. Prefer looks to Avant 55.

No curtains on putting TV into standby.

Dolby vision not possible on Apple TV when connected to Eclipse through soundcentre. It will play HDR 60Hz and this requires Belkin ultrafast cdmi cable.

No control of network link products with BeoRemote one !!!

Deezer intermittent.

Occasional audio dropping from Sky , Netflix and Amazon. Pulling plug out of socket restores it.

Netflix stream rate is intermittent ,pictures vary from 480p to 2160p (TV is hard wired to router 74Mps)

My button on remote does not function - yet.

Tv always defaults to HDMi A on start up regardless of what is selected

Very Rocky start to LG and B&O marriage

Should've gone to supersavers and then would have got the right purchase: LG0LED55C7BOZ £1900 Curry's

Once updates are produced and subsequently installed I an sure the finished product will be good.

With the drop-outs on HDMI A on the SoundCentre - Could this possibly be a software bug for B&O to fix on the SoundCentre itself?

Does as anyone know if any of this feedback has been sent back to B&O? 

As for HDMI 1 on the panel itself, I could see how that would be an issue for Apple to resolve. 

Anyone else experience issues with other devices connected through the SoundCentre?

First of all make sure you use the Belkin ultra fast HDMI cable (Apple TV 4k recommends this)

U should find stability on 4K 6O HZ HDR in audio and video settings in Apple TV Chroma is 4:2:0

I believe Dolby vision is not possible at this time 

Using HDMI 1 means no control of Apple TV Using the Beoremote One.

Also enable hdmi ultra HD Deep colour on LGC7 oops B&O tv!

Reported to Apple and B&O a couple of days after Apple 4k tv release. Apple still investigating and B&O probably still busy bonding their Soundbars to the LGC7 panels using Gorilla glue as there has been no response from them.

B&O are aware of the problem:

Work-around:
 
Performance issue on HDMI with UDH signals above 30 Hz (FPS) or FHD 4:4:4 colour sub sampling.
 
Unfortunately, we have recognized performance issues with high-speed HDMI UHD signals.
We have seen set-top boxes where the signal is interrupted or you get noise on the screen when the signal frame rate is above 30Hz on UHD.
Playback of UHD HDR Blu-ray will not be affected by this because they are 24 Hz.
If you use the HDMI socket on the back of the BeoVision Eclipse (directly in the screen), there are no problems. The disadvantage here is that there is no PUC control, and the HDMI inputs can't be selected via the BeoRemote - you have to use the Bang & Olufsen app or rely on the source being selected automatically.
 
We recommend not to enable the HDMI Ultra HD Deep Colour. We are working on a solution and we will keep you updated.

Thanks. Good to know they’re aware of the problem and are currently working on a solution.

Anyone heard anymore on this? I got my Eclipse on the weekend - loving it so far (although REALLY want them to add more B&O to the interface). Annoying Dolby Vision doesn't work through HDMI A/B/C/D - it better do with an update!

Current annoying things:

- Can't link to remote sources (so can't set speaker options for when I join my BeoSound Essence for example, but I can probably get round this using the BLGW). JOIN does work well however - seems quick. Love that it has Airplay built-in as well so really easy to get friends to play their music through my speaker setup.

- Haven't tested the BLGW with it yet but from playing in-store it appears to accept commands from the BLGW. However it doesn't yet pass through LIGHT and CONTROL commands to BLGW - not really acceptable so hopefully this is added soon!

- NO CURTAINS! Too much LG.

- Not able to remove sources I don't want (such as all the LG apps) so there's loads on the remote screen I don't want there. Would also like to be able to edit LIST contents for each source.

I have to say thought - the sound from the TV itself is AMAZING! I'm sure it's not the case but the sound being sent through my 4 BL18s seems to be better as well!

 

BeoVision Eclipse 55”, Beolab 18s, Beolab 19s, Beosound 1, Beoplay P2, H3, BeoRemote One IR, BeoRemote One BT, Beoplay S8, Beosound Essence MkII, BeoTime

Same here ... having several problems with HDMI ports on SoundCentre. All info sent to B&O.
Complete silence from B&O on this matter... kind of worrying...

actually you can..

on BR1 - List - Speaker - your defined Speaker settings

Partly can be done

BR1 - Home button - select the to be deleted app - up button - confirm with OK (edit: but not the LG apps)

The LIST command are source dependent, but I didn't find a way to remove or move them

I find it the best sound I ever experienced from a BV

I mean when you swap to a source automatically - you used to be able to predefine options for linked sources on previous BO TVs. Again, I could do this with the BLGW but it's a feature that's been removed from what previous models did.

Exactly - loads of silly LG apps visible on my B&O remote and no ability to edit the LIST manually (as you can in IR mode on the BR1)

you mean to predefine Speaker groups and Sound mode for sources of the BV Eclipse? This can be set in a simular way as on a BV11.

Actually until now I only found one major difference with the BV11 - some functionallities of Homemedia: 1. I can't play FLAC files from the network. 2. Multichannel music files are not supported.

Still no response for Apple TV 4K. Told to be patient.

Unfortunately no future support for NL/ML converter. Hard wire older products to Eclipse for some functionality i.e lets the system play thru speakers but no control of CD or Radio using BeoRemote one.

Possibly the beginning of the death knell for Classic B&O.

That probly had to come.

Less and less users wanting to integrate older stuff with the newest.....when we count out those, who are on Beoworld ;-))

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Putting aside so-called negativity on this board, when actual Eclipse owners make comments like this, times are seriously worrying. These are owners, using the TV, stating they are disappointed with the product and brand direction.
