New software update, fixed light diode disappears during audio mode, shows metadata for radio on top for 2 min now, instead of on the left hand side. Much nicer 😎 also gives coverflow when playing Chromecast.

And don't forget it's the first time you can quickly update your Beovision's panel by buying another one in any cheap TV shop Big Smile

(that's not my aim of course, the longer it lasts the better for the planet)

Displaying TuneIn Radio

Displaying Chromecast metadata.

The volume display shows as usual on the screen.

Here’s an overview of what is possible.

Enjoy the update Harmony owners!

Well it's a nice update for Harmony owners that actually use their Harmony for music streaming.  So it's chromecast only if you want to see metadata and cover art with no airplay 2 (obv licensing).

I wonder if a future update can make it a little more B&O?  But would that effectively mean text only (font like a BS4) and no cover art

Or cover art on the left and in the middle section as it seems the UI is in 3 parts, have "chromecast audio" in text without the chromecast logo and then the song and album under neath that and get rid of the "source" logo on the right hand side.

And if you play music from a Moment or other source through NL, no meta data shown? And drom own Deezer app in the Harmony, metadata shown or not?

With this new direction of the Multiroom usage through chromecast and airplay, is there still any function for the B&O app (apart for setting up things)?

Thanks for sharing!

NL: which NL device is joined and the devices source which is playing; no meta data

Airplay: no meta data, just the source AirPlay is shown.

hardly.

B&o looses its identity in the multiroom aria completely this way.

Completely agree. Shocking how little people seem to care about this. I’m completely dedicated to use the B&O interface only through Beoremote1, app and touch to join. The minut they got this almost 100% they seem to ditch it all in once. Is the management that bad that they just don’t care?? The NL protocol can not be that expensive and the app is almost there so not a big investment anymore to keep it maintained.

I watched the google pairing of the Balance the chromecast setup on youtube channel from John of B&O Manchester and I was feeling sad, the B&O app is looking so much better and simpler to use!

And even the Harmony is leaning more and more to AP and CC use only. Is the Harmony still functioning over NL I wonder. Maybe the Eclipse is really the last Beovision ever made...

NL on Harmony is comparable to NL on Eclipse.
