Hi folks,

My BV5 is a Bit of outdatet an I need a new screen.

This TV is a real statement an I love him.

I think to change the Panel must not be a big deal but I need some hints and adviceses.

I also looked around here but I did not find the right „Tutorial“ Wink

The screen should be at least 1080 or 4k

Maybe somebody has done this can help me a little bit.

The one thing I would like to do is, to put a Raspberry pi as Mediacenter in it.

But the most important thing is that I can use the active speakers who are build in.

Maybe with the rasperry I can use the Beo4 alsoBig Smile

I hope someone can help me with links or something else.

Kind regards, Bernd

Someone used to market just such a thing on EBay. Had a Sony UHD screen in it. Haven’t seen one for quite some time though.

Which screen would you prefer?

Are there big differences?

If you use a Raspberry Pi as a media centre and get a FLIRC dongle you will be able to control it via Beo4 and the PUC on the BV5. I used to do this on my BV5 and used the Apple PUC that was in my TV.

The FLIRC is a IR reciever. You can teach it any of the choices in the BV5 PUC list.

Trank you SmileSmile

I will google it.

That means that the FLIRC translates the Codes?

Yes, you actually "teach" the FLIRC by plugging into PC/laptop and pointing the remote you want to learn at it. In the case of the PUC, you aim the emitter at it and teach it the buttons from the Beo4. Then plug it into your Raspberry Pi. 

If you have the correct software on the Raspberry Pi you can plug the FLIRC in an learn the codes via that without the PC step.

I'm currently using one on my Amazon FireTV.
