Thanks for your Help :-)

I will try a bit with all the possibilities. But I think best is to buy a DVB Receiver for the livingroom. Masterlink is only for audio right?

 

I have a few of these lying around. https://www.amazon.de/Konvertern-Konverter-Stecker-Adapter-USB-Power-Kabel-VGA-HDMI-3-5mm-Audio/dp/B00S646VV4

They work really good as I use them for business and connecting my beamer to my BV 7-40

Oh - dann hätte ich ja auf Amazon.de linken können 😉

Try it out, when you alread have one.

However, I’ll stay by my suggestion to use a small tv box directly on the 7-40.

Yes, ML is for audio....and control commands.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Unusually you have the 32 with HDMI and the 40 without, had it only been the other way around....

You have the Cinema output (Display 2) connect that to a HDMI converter and run a SCART cable.

FORMAT 0 will then switch between the two displays and you be able to distribute HD video...

Let me know if you get the general idea?

@BEOVOX141

As far as I remember rhe 7-32 with the two HDMI -ins had a VGA-output for the second screen.

Correct me, if I am wrong!

You are properly absolutely right! So something as simple as this might actually do the trick, since HDCP is not an issue. What do you think?

VGA-DVI adaptor

VGA til DVI-adapter L-Link LL-AD-1115

I get your idea. I also have a vga to hdmi Converter lying around and a 10m hdmi cable. 

Can I then control the BV 7-32 via the Beo4 from the Livingroom? What is the scart for? Audio?

I have a few of them lying around from earlier on, I guess.

But it won’t help much - VG/DVI carries no sound.....and how about controlling 🤔

VGA is an analog signal - no way to connect to HDMI (which is digital.

Only way (and I would not recommend it) could be use the VGA to a scart converter (connected to one of the scart connections on the 32) and add a sound signal from one of the scart (out) connections on the 7-32.

I see no way to control that from afar.

How about getting a small BVB-HD tv box for the 7-40 instead?

I know, but the original poster mentioned Masterlink so the sound is there, getting it to play might be another matter. I have never had the privilege of meeting a Beovision 7-40 MkI, but I am guessing its possible.

Edit: I did not see your second reply...

Do you mean one like this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Converter-FOINNEX-Computer-Projector-Portable-VGA-HDMI-Adapter/dp/B072NCTBVP

I have no experience with those - don’t know how the quality will be.

Maybe worth a try!

However the control issue will stay.

The HDMI video is not available on the SCART connectors *), but it should be on the DISPLAY 2 VGA connector, so out from the 32 using VGA then in on the DVI on the 40.. ?

Consider A video linked TV,- I dont see why the same rules would apply?

*) Except for some DVB solutions.. double path inside to circumvent this very issue!

Good point - didn’t even realize that in the hassle....that 7-40 has no HDMI 🤥
