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.

This can be done using Service Tool MK2 +. In the Products/BLC/Softwaredownload directory, copy the contents of the Products/BeoLinkGateway/SoftWaredownload catalog.Copy the XML file from the ModuleSpec directory. The update is via the TFTPD server and takes about 30 minutes.

Hi Jack, 

sorry for the stupid question but is there a way to download the service tool? I have not found the tool.

Thanks for your help.

The application has a service, you also need to have an account in B&O to download the firmware. Currently, it occupies over 8GB.
