Assuming you have everything in the picture, all you need is a "PC to BL Active" cable which Steve at Sounds Heavenly probably has on hand.  Your b&o dealer might, but I always had problems with them ordering the wrong cable when I did this.  It is NOT the same as an AUX-in cable.

A couple comments:

1)  Your title says "Beolink Passive", but the diagram shows a "Beolink Active".  If you have a Passive it is a different cable (which, again, you can probably get from Steve at Sounds Heavenly).

2)  If you have an Active, then the Active must be connected to a working BeoLink Master (i.e. Beosound or Beovision that supports ML) via MasterLink

3)  If you actually have a Passive, then this can run just fine without a MasterLink master.  However, as the name suggests, the BL Passive supports passive speakers (no built-in amplifier).

Looks like you have everything.. although your Active must have an IR receiver.  Now, just hook everything up, and press "PC" on your Beo4 to hear what your phone is playing.  You may need to add the PC command to your remote.  The instructions on how to add additional commands to a Beo4 can be found on the site somewhere (I don't remember myself).  The audio from the cable only plays on the speakers connected to the Active.

Found information "PC"  Beo4 ... It turns out that I have an old version of Beo4 that does not support the "PC" function :(

Thank you so much for responding to me!

On you beo4:

1)  Hold down the red dot button and the LIST button until the screen says "ADD?"

2)  Press OK

3)  Scroll (up/down arrow) through the options until you find "PC"

4)  Press OK

5)  Screen should say "ADDED"

6)  Press LIST repeatedly until the screen shows "PC"

7)  Press OK

8)  Sit back, relax, enjoy music :D

Thank you so much!  I do so, but there are no PC features on this list.  I read that I have an older Beo4 and do not have a PC function yet :(

I`m pretty sure, your 5 pin cable (?) in the picture won`t work - the PC socket has a special wiring with pins 2 - 4 - 7 for L-R-GND.

You will find more info in the archived forum.

Hope this helps

Maybe you can manage to press SHIFT (as a LIST function) and STORE (as a hard button...) This will send the same IR code as "PC".

Hope this helps

You’ll laugh now, but I don’t have a Store button on the remote either :))))

To check the SW version of your Beo4 remote 

Press GO and MENU at the same time then press LIST three times.  What does it say?
