Item number: 1179011
Type number: 1790
 
Product HW info
Name: BeoLink Converter NL/ML
HW variant: Version F
 
SmallEngine HW info HWID0
PCB version: E
Variant: 8004752
BOM: version K
Configuration word: 2120

This is the only variant known to me.

Note: the first BLC had some connections hidden behind stickers, but were identical to the later ones.

It seems the BLGW is another variant.

I have seen several units marked as NL/ML Converters that had been turned into BLGW units. After spending much time trying to do resets and various means of establishing a connection, the way I realized this was by using the Ping app, in which the devices appeared as BLGW.

How do you transform the NL/ML converter into a BLGW unit? Just a software update?

Is there anyone that have tried to load BLGW software NL/ML converter? How did you get the converter to load new software?

Any news on this topic?

For the moment I have a spare  Beolink NL / ML Converter (does not find Software updates anymore - servers down?).

So I think about turning it into a BLGW.
