Hello friends,

Just saw my Beolab 50 had a new firmware available to update. I was on 3.0.0.616 and updated to 3.1.0.1001. So far I haven't seen any differences except that the web-UI is dated 2021-06-03 and that I can see both the primary and secondary speakers firmware info in the product info but this might have been added earlier. (I remember that it was sometimes so that only one speaker would update previously). 

One thing that occurred for me was that the speaker got stuck on a dialog asking me to connect the DLP cable between the set but as this has always been there it made no sense, probably just a design glitch in the web interface as a simple manual reload helped (The dialogue suggested turning the power off for 30 seconds for both speakers but this was not necessary).

Beolab 50, Beolab 8000 x 2, Beolab 4000 x 2, 
BeoSound Core, BeoSound 9000, BeoSound Century, 
BeoLit 15, BeoPlay A1, BeoPlay P2, BeoPlay H9 3rd Gen, BeoPlay H6, EarSet 3i, 
BeoVision Eclipse Gen 2 55", BeoPlay V1-40, 
BeoCom 6000 and so much else :)

Yea they are sadly very reluctant to sharing such info. Weird as these speakers are such special beats and a lot of users probably would LOVE to know. 

Anyway, they did include a text for the iOS app, but only this "Dummy long description" :D.

I'll let you know when the update to the Technical Sound Guide is available. This will explain the "manual source selection" and the "USB Volume" features.

Have a nice weekend

Wow thanks John! Really informative and interesting. Will try it out this weekend, first for my friends new song coming out this evening (https://www.instagram.com/p/CP6KHAEpjEE/) - but first we are playing it on my Beolit 15 as the launch is going to be impromptu in a park somewhere here in Malmö, Sweden. Later on the 50s :).

I have B&O promotion videos playing on the TV's in store, as I read Geoff's comment I looked up and Geoff's face was on the screen looking back at me, perfectly timed! 

I feel like he's watching me now!

With the new ARC improvements, does it mean I should recalibrate my speakers?

Has anyone noticed that presets are not updating on ios app if preset change happens automatic by input/beoremote one/web interface? Volume updates instantly web-app-ir and web interface presets change immediately when use app/ir/automatic. Only way update app preset is rebooting app or select preset manually. Small issue but still should get fixed.

No update for mine yet…..but about the same time the update was reported, mine have developed a problem. When I turn the TV on, there is a lengthy delay before the 50s turn on. Am hoping perhaps the update will fix the problem.

No sign of the update here for either my Lab 90s or 50s (as I assume the new firmware applies to both).

The one change I'd like in a new version is to increase the maximum time-out for the USB Audio input from 60 seconds to 15 minutes, in line with the other sources.

I'd also like the dedicated BeoLab 90 app to be updated to work with the latest version of iOS as it's no longer functional (though I normally use the web interface to control them anyway).

Following up on this previous post….. No update for mine yet…..but about the same time the update was reported, mine have developed a problem. When I turn the TV on, there is a lengthy delay before the 50s turn on. Am hoping perhaps the update will fix the problem………

I tried rebooting them through the app. App was unable to reboot. I unplugged them and plugged back in. Tweeters rose, white light flashed, tweeters descended as normal. But, now they are totally dead. They do not turn on at all with the tv. App says cannot wake them up. Previously app showed both the 50s and Core as poor WiFi connectivity even though they are connected by ethernet and router system shows connection is fine. Submitted to B and O but if anyone has any other thoughts?

Edit…strangely…removed from ethernet and connected to WiFi and they resumed working except for reboot function, which still does not work.
