« Interesting » and scaring ... but why not all products are reacting the same ? My M3 and BS 1 are also part of my Apple home and their name can still be changed by B&O tools.

It’s funny...

....I can rename my Essence (2nd gen), but not my M3.

Further I can rename my BV Avant, but not my V1.

Note: I never used the Apple Home app - and this should have any effect on the renaming of the V1, anyway.

May I suggest a new feature:

I think it would be nice if the App could provide more information about the now playing track such as the format (MP*, FLAC, etc...), the sample rate, the bit depth and rate, the channels, the track release date and some information about the artist. All this is usually retrievable from the track metadata, being DLNA or Deezer, just an idea .....

Dion:

Hi MrAnderson,

Sorry for the delay in responding, I have been travelling and away from my B&O setup at home.

What you have clarified is correct, that's exactly what happens. I have just tried again with Pink Floyd Animals (5 track album) and it has resulted in the album being placed in the PQ three times with track1 in first and playing from the third entry. I cleared the PQ and it did it again. Screenshot below.

This is the latest beta of the app running on Android.

Let me know if there is any more information I can provide to help find this bug.

Kind regards,

Dion

 

Hi @MrAnderson,

I was just wondering if you have had a chance to look at my PQ issue?

I can submit a bug through the play store if that would help...

Many thanks,

Dion.

Hi Dion

We're unable to reproduce it. I will get our QA to give it another shot. I might need your logs to proceed. I will get back to you today.

However, I think I've noticed a new bug. It seems that the albums are entered into the PQ twice and in an odd order. For example, if I add an album with 4 tracks my PQ will look as follows

I found a way to produce a similar behavior :

Load 1,2,3,4 in PQ and start listening 1

Before 1 finishes, listen to a radio

Load 1,2,3,4 in PQ again

PQ will look like: 1,1,2,3,4,2,3,4

Thank you very much for working on the genre “Deezer-Auswahl” Show All screen. Now it is much better on the iPad screen, you see more content / genre, what it is all about. 

But I would love / suggest to follow the Deezer design (as you did with Artists using round circles instead of squares). Deezer is using small rectangle instead of squares for displaying genre. The big advantage is, that you are able to display more content on the same display size. See screenshot comparison Deezer vs. B&O App on iPhone and iPad:

And in the end it is content you want to display for selection, it is not a foto app that has to focus on pictures. And the genre pictures are transporting much less information compared to album covers. Certainly it should look good, but Deezer found a very good compromise between looking good and displaying as much content as possible. Please follow the Deezer approach !!!

Today reset M3 to factory settings, now I can change name in the B&O App (so without Apple Home App), and also in de BeoTool App can change the name of the M3.

I can't make sense of it to be...

But problem solvedSmile

Even I disabled several local sources of my Beosound Core (see left screenshot), they are still displayed in the source list (see right screenshot) in the now playing screen.

Why? That does not make any sense!
I would like to have a short list without the necessity to scroll (on the iPhone) for STANDBY, without all options I disabled and I do not use like SPOTIFY-APP ÖFFNEN.

Another suggestion (on top of the one I raised previously):

To display the track artist instead of the album artist in the play queue items, more informative for compilations and consistent with the now playing screen:

BS Moment, BS Core, BS Ouverture, BG 4002, BS1, BL18, BL19, BL8000 + RCV1, A6, M5, M3, A1, P6 (tks Botty), H5, TR1

Agree - there is some work there to be done in order to make these entries corresponding.

If ordering of (and excluding some) entries in the settings is offered, this should also show up in the list.

Was probably somewhat forgotten 😉

Today I’ve noticed that the app shows a notification when a sw-update is avaiable for your products:

In this case there was a sw-update for M5 (and also for Core).

I have installed both updates but havn’t spotted any changes yet.

Feature request:

A more handy place for battery status for the Beosound 1 would be nice.

Currently you have to go into the web interface part to see that information.

New issue in 2.8.xxx, beta and commercial:

Moving forward/backward in a DLNA track does not work properly.

Tested and reproducible on 3 different DLNA servers (Twonky, Minimserver and PLEX)

If you move forward to 00:30 by pressing on the progress bar, playing point resumes around 01:15

If you move forward to 01:00 by pressing on the progress bar, playing point resumes around 2:30

Same test with a Deezer track has no issue.

I remember this bug in the early versions of Moment software.

Over to you Mr Andersen

Once upon a time I was able to control my volume with the volumewheel from the app.

Can we expect it's return one day? Would be nice. Now I have to take the Moment itself or the Beo4 to control the volume.

Moment is connected through ML/NL converter to the BV9 with it's speakers.

To add to the issues’ catalog:

As we have to use Apple Home app to set the B&O products names when integrated in the Apple microcosm, I noticed that special characters are not well transmitted between the two worlds, see below:

MrAndersen:

 

The one about the artist title instead of album title?

The one about the "track artist name" to be displayed instead of the "album artist name" in the now playing screen is a request for enhancement that makes a lot of sense when you listen to Compilations or classical music, otherwise the NP screen displays "Various Artists", i.e album artist name, instead of the real artist performing.

The PQ issue I'm referring to is similar to the Android behavior prior correction:

When an album, or part of it, is added to a PQ, the PQ content is emptied before, and you can repeat this as many time as you want, PQ will be emptied first -> GOOD

BUT but but if you have listened to a TuneIn radio at some point before ending listening to the PQ content, the PQ is not emptied before you load any new  tracks which are instead added following the latest played track of the latest album loaded in the PQ before listening to a radio -> BAD

In my previous post I described a simple scenario that you can easily recreate.

Dear MrAndersen I strongly wish / support following five feature requests for the B&O app already mentioned in this thread.

  1. Deezer Flow - one of the best features of the Deezer app.
    Alsfeld:
    1. A Deezer Flow button to start / to stop Deezer Flow somewhere in the B&O App.
  2. Possibility to reduce local source list in the now playing screen.

  4. Clearer multiroom screen, you see all groupings at once, without changing selected products
    MrAndersen:
    Redesign of multiroom screen
  5. A fully working app (not freezing) within a local network when DSL connection is not available (= no internet access, only local network access)
    HH1971:
    the bug that courses a freezing app (after 3 to 6 minutes when there is WLAN / LAN connection to B&O products but no Internet connection) is not solved!

Please implement these features, that would be really great!

@Mr Andersson. A problem to look at.

Setup:

Beovision 11-46 with a Beosound 1 GVA integrated. BL3s connected to the BV.

What I do:

Start playing a Deezer playlist from the app.

Use app to join the BV11 to the experience.

Silence sound on BS1 using the app (dragging multi room slider to zero)

Adjusting volume on BV11 from the now playing screen on app (the circle)

What happens:

Volume on the BV jumps up significantly, and also the BS volume jumps up.

If I use the BeoremoteOne the volume works okay.

I’m able to reproduce this.

Dear Mr Anderson,

On two occasions I’ve dropped an error report to B&O care through the app. Unfortunately I did not receive any feedback whatsoever on my two messages. Is there something wrong with the app support functionality?

Thanks
