I’m trying to connect an ATV 3rd gen. to a BeoCenter 6-26 without HDMI. I’m using a HDMI to DVI cable for the picture and a digital to analog audio converter for the sound.

The problem is that I have picture but no sound.

My BC6-28 did not have the Apple TV puc unfortunately. But I found a workaround: I chose a Humax PUC from the list (as I had a Humax STB lying around) and taught the ATV(4) to listen to the basic Humax commands. It needed some help of the Humax remote, but I got it working.

Good luck!

I have tried a number of PUC from the list and I can teach the Beo4 the first 4 commands (up, down, left, right), but not the last 2 (Select and Menu).

You are actually 'teaching' the ATV, rather than the Beo4.  Anyway, when I tried this I found that in order for the PUC to transmit sufficiently for the ATV to recognise sound of the commands, I had to press the Beo4 buttons repeatedly (and fast) whilst watching the ATV's 'IR receipt' progress bar move across the screen.  I had to try a number of difference PUCs before I got it to work.

Did you manage to teach the ATV all six commands? Which buttons on the Beo4 did you use for Select and Menu? Do you remember which PUCs on the tv you used?

I copy this - not easy. So I used the remote of a non-used Humax STB to teach the ATV the Humax commands.

On my (non-joystick) Beo4 EXIT corresponds to Menu, and GO corresponds to Select.

Yes I did manage to teach all 6 buttons.  From memory I think that I too used EXIT and GO.  

Again from memory, I either used a Humax or PACE/SKY PUC - there's about 4 pages in my list so I can't remember exactly sorry!

I have now taught my ATV the six commands. 😀I chose the first STB in the PUC list and pressed the Beo4 buttons repeatedly and fast like you said. Some of the commands required to be pressed a lot of times, but it worked. I don’t think many people know your “trick” I was told that it was impossible to do without having a technician to put ATV into the PUC list on the television.

Thank you very much for your clever advice.
