Thomas, could you please also implement a vacation mode, I believe it is more down to the firmware. All alarms suspended, but not deleted until the end of the holidays.

Hello Thomas, I Have tried this morning to control bass and treble om my Beoplay M3 with the new beta app. However I do not notice any differences.

Could it be that a M3 firmware-update is on its way?

Could you provide a setting to compensate for the volume of TuneIn? TuneIn is horribly loud compared to other sources. I'm constantly needing to grab for my remote to reduce the volume.

What is the version number of the app by now?

i am on 1.4.0.11269.

You are talking about a version not available for ‘the public’, right?

When will that be released for everyone?

Please clarify - I thought that these settings all were part of the firm-/software of each device.

E.g. I see no problem in creating timers on my Essence or make sound settings.

This has been possible for a while now.

Am I missing something???

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

MrAndersen:

  • Bass and treble

Bass/Treble will be hidden for these.

Please. Can you confirm that 'real' bass and treble settings will be available on M5?
"Bass/Treble will be hidden for these". What does that mean? That you can toggle the settings on/off, or?

I've heard this rumored since spring 2017.

Hi Thomas 

The timer function works really well, but it would be nice if you could add a “once only timer” Otherwise you have to delete the timer if you don’t want it to start same time next week.

I can see that you removed the “configuration” function for NL/ML converter!!! Is that gone for good?

@millemissen, it is version 1.5.0.11550

@Millimissen: This is currently only on testflight. Yes this has been possible from the web settings but now it is available natively in the app.

@jimcaj: Yes I can confirm this is coming.

@Soren: I would love to add "once only" but the products do not support it :(. Yes BLC configuration was removed since the web page was almost unusable on a mobile device. 

@liviu_o: Please send me a direct message and I can add you

I know you can do the configuration on the webpage, but I think the mobile version worked quite well on an iPad with the old BeoSetup app, it makes me a little worried about the future When development is going quite slow and funkktions is remove within the same month a product is discontinued.

when operating my Beovision 11 I still use the BeoRemote app more often than the Bang & Olufsen app, so i still have to use multiple apps to control my system😔

I tried to use the alarm function but the “alarm type” cannot be modified (standby by default) on my app, for all products (A9 and Essence). I reported this bug via the app.

the NL/ml configuration link is gone.

and I suggest an ergonomic improvement : I think the app would be considerably easier to use in multi room if we could directly switch from one product to the other just by swiping left or right on the product “now playing” screen (the screen with the volume wheel) instead of having to go back to home and change product every time.
