I know there are other threads on a similar topic but as time goes by so do solutions...

I have a BeoVision 7-40 HD (the early one with no HDMI) with an attached BL 7.4. This is the centre of a system with a BeoSound 9000 and 2 X BL 8000's at front and 2 X BL 6000's at rear. There is also a BeoLab 2. Everything is "plumbed in" using ML. The speakers are the older ones.

I want to change my TV to a non B&O option. Question is how can I keep the rest of my system in place and still make everything work as is with minimal relocation of wires etc? The 9000 is on the wall with wires plastered in!!

Thanks

Had not thought of thatSmile. Thank you. I know you can still buy them. Anyone with experience of using this with something like an LG OLED?

Thanks for the suggestion. Always worry a little when things are run by an app given Apple’s lack of continuing support and updating issues for them some times.

As I have reported in an other post I have installed the Almando in a similar setup. In order to connect the ML you need to add a B&O link active. Works perfectly for me. The app of Almando is (actually two app's either Apple or Android) is only used to setup the speakers (volume etc). Once this is done you never use the app again.

Good luck!

Hi Raeven

I hope you don’t mind me asking I have asked a question on something similar, beovision 4-50 non hd, I’m going to replace this with a non bango tv, however I still have the beocentre 2, do I simply use a beolink active to connect the beocentre 2, and still use the radio and cd command, how is the volume controlled

Hello the app is called: Almando Control. But I think the app is still in test by Apple. If you buy an Almando product just mail them and you will receive an invitation to Testflight then you download and run the app. The android app is normally available in the google store. I work with the Apple app works perfectly. If you want I can post some screen shots.

Hi Reaven,

 

How would you rate the Almando DAC? Did you notice any quality drop in sound due to use of a non-BO TV?

Hi Mikipedia,

why are you not happy with your Eclipse?

I am satisfied with mine besides that I experience sometimes NO sound when starting Deezer or MUSIC from NAS. But I got message from my dealer that this software bug is beeing corrected very soon.

I really like the PQ of the Eclipse and that the Tv support all major PQ format (dolby vision and HDR).

Best regards

Martin
