@moxxy,

Looks like it's you who are wishing. Not sure why.

Wasn't there another post saying that the project was shelved, but is now on again with a 3rd party?

Unless you can reveal your sources, I tend to believe a dealer who may be getting better info.

Well said. Agree completely.

Since you have the Eclipse, you are predestinied to make this test for us (doesn’t have to be a 65” version).

Just to show, what happens, when you connect a stock LG C7 to the SoundCenter ;-)

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Bring me another television and i’ll happily try. I only have one tv and it’s the eclipse. I have plenty of other screens but they’re all pc/tablet related so they don’t have any tv related hook ups (like cec hdmi)

New: Beolab 50's, Beolab 18's, Beovision eclipse, Beosound 9000 mk3, Beosound 1 Bronze edition, Beoplay M3.

I understand - was just kidding.

Would be interesting however, if someone could do this experiment ;-)

Thinking about this, I'm just wondering whether I can update to full 4K HDR by just doing the following:

Get a suitable HDMI switch that is either IP or IR controlled. Connect that switch to the New 4K HDR TV using the existing HDMI cable (hopefully works)

remove HDMI source connections (Apple TV, Sky etc.) from Beosystem 3 and plug into switch.

Connect SP DIF audio cables from sources into Beosystem 3

Use raspberry Pi to handle switching by intercepting signal from IR eye (still connected to Beosystem 3)

Use serial connection from Beosystem 3 to raspberry PI to signal TV on/off. (if necessary, use a HDMI CEC injector - from Pulse 8 to switch on/off TV- switching the HDMI switch on/off may be enough)

I'll lose the screen curtains, but not much else. The audio will route via the Beosystem 3, and the video via the switch. I've already completed the code for the serial on/off function and HDMI CEC injection, so would just need to map the commands coming from the IR eye to the HDMI switch.

Surely it can't be that easy Big Smile

 

Any suggestions on which HDMI switch I should use?

Why don't you get Lintronic TT? 

All devices attachted directly to TV via HDMI.

Digitial Audio out from TV to Beosystem.

Teach Lintronic how your System is Setup, e.g. what do to when Beo 4 DTV is pressed etc.

That's it...

I’d would assume lip sync issues and also won’t get HD audio, only limited to AC3/DTS.

Therefore I tend towards the Almando Multiplay. Only problem I see, that I cannot adjust the crossover frequencies .

I wouldn't buy a Lintronic unit any more - the guy is too arrogant. And anyhow, I can build something better for the price of a raspberry pi.

The only issue I can see with your setup is that you would need to feed the digital audio out to each (phantom) connection on the Beosystem 3. 

A big issue for me is that I already have only one HDMI wire in the wall - it runs about 6m, and I'm keen not to have to run new ones. The switcher would be better for me.

Ooh. I don’t know what that means.

I’m just reading about it at the moment.
