Agreed - many have suggested all they want in a sound bar / hub that comes with a Beoremote 1 and PUC connectivity. 

On the surface that makes sense - it allows existing customers to use a 3rd party TV with B&O speakers, and carry on.

But when you dig deeper, its not so clear.

The 3rd party TV Ui will still be garish, colourful etc i.e. not the heritage B&O feel. And its far from clear how a BR 1 will be able to fully control the TV UI.

Increasingly TV UI / OS are voice controllable - I don't think they will update the BR 1 to interrogate voice, so how useful / future proof will one be?

And when it comes to PUC, while many of us here are fans, increasingly the industry is moving away from IR and blasters.

So in that sense, if B&O were being forward looking / ambitious, I can't help but feel that PUC won't be a priority for them.

I was looking at a Harmony Elite remote - set aside the aesthetics, which are cheap. It is very capable, integrating voice, scenes, home automation etc - hard to argue that the BR 1 is much better.

@ mawheele
Bang & Olufsen's biggest chance is to fill the void that occurs when ours beloved BeoVision TV
does not work anymore. Now we know, from 2019 is HDMI 2.1 and eARC system the future.
So, of course, it must be implanted in the HUB to save us, and B&O.

For all TV brands - An B&O HUB in 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos. Connection: Wired for the previous generation BeoLab or Wirelees for the new generation BeoLab, could be a great setup. Then all wishes can be fulfilled in 2019.

Well b&o recommend the BL50 and BL90 to be wired so it’s not only previous gen stuff for wiring.

But I think it’s time to ditch the support for the old stuff anyway.

Is there anymore news on the WISA module in the LG?

CES 2019 starts on January 7th.

Ken Hong, LG's Global Communications Manager, says on CES's new questions.
"It is not LG's policy to comment on rumors and speculation", after which Ken added:
"But everything can happen at CES". Yes - thumbs up

It is important to understand that HDMI 2.1 consists of a number of sub-components and that some
of them are already built into a few 4K TVs. Flatpanel expect many more displays in 2019 to offer
features like HDMI eARC and VRR. On the other hand, the increased bandwidth that allows 8K input
signals - and 4K at higher frame rates - requires new chipsets. Flatpanel expect to see the first TV
with such chipsets at the CES fair, but do not expect full HDMI 2.1 to become the norm in 2019.

Well, looks like Bang&Olufsen is not an exhibitor at CES 2019. Just went through the list and couldn‘t find them. :/

Bang & Olufsen probably cannot afford to attend CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
How's that? Huge wage increase for B & O chief executive.

Can you almost double your salary in just one year? The answer is yes if
Henrik Clausen has been turned around B&O as top manager, in the
Danish design clone B&O.

In the past year, there has been a severe wage increase from DKK 6.6 million.
DKK in the previous financial year for the whole DKK 12.8 million Recently,
B & O's annual accounts state that DKK.

Nobody needs HDMI 2.1 or eARC unless they are moving to a new TV and devices that require it. In which case the hub is useless anyhow. If and when devices arrive where it's absolutely critical, then you'll want the 8K TV to go with it that requires 18GB bandwidth, otherwise there is no point. Your existing TV won't see any benefit whatsoever.

I'm sorry to say it, but I don't think this is a seller and certainly nothing I'd invest R&D into. As they say on Dragons Den - "I'm out"

If you have HDR and Dolby Vision - eg. The Eclipse - then you're good for the foreseeable.

Maybe they should stay completely out of the US with the ‘staged products’ - it has always been a dead end market.

And concentrate on selling BT speakers/headphones over there instead.

The Millemissen closes down for the United States. What about Aus / NZ. Life there
is also too complicated for BeoCare. Customer complaints then fall by 60%. Big Smile

If B&O exits the US, then my Eclipse and Saab can commiserate as my Scandinavian orphans Surprise

Concerning WiSA USB Transmitters. The 'surprise' will first be served to us CES Fair's LG news conference. (Maybe).
