How can I integrate a 55" Oled TV into the system that I have, all I want to do is replace the aging BV4 50" with an up to date 55" Oled TV (looking at the Sony Bravia XR55 A90JU "LG Panel") my problem is that I need it to work in my Beosystem 3 set up, this set up includes B&O Overture, B&O DVD2,  Humax Freesat, Lutron Light panel and the remote wall bracket, everything is programed to and operated by the Beo5 remote, the system also uses the 8000s, 6000s, BL 7.2 and BL 2 sub. speakers

I am not very technical when it comes to cables, adapters etc. that may be needed in the integration, I don't mind having to use two remotes (better with one !!) but I would like everything to work as it does now with surround sound, the system switching between video and audio,  with powering off etc.

Anyone out there knows how to do it !!!!!  with a detailed  "how to"

I would even pay someone to do it for me 

HELP NEEDED, THANKS

Hi Graham 60,

If you do not care about the higher resolution of the new panel and are happy with the BS3's HD signal*, the only thing you need to do is to get a cable between the BS3 (either DVI or HDMI, depends on the model) to an HDMI in of the new TV.

Set the new TV to that HDMI input port and you will see the video that the BS3 produces. You will have to switch on/off the new TV with the new TV's remote (unless the TV has some auto sensing that reacts to the signal coming from the BS3). Turn the speakers in the new TV off (in the menu of the new TV) as the audio is managed within the BS3. Maybe you will have to tell the BS3 (in the menu) that it is connected to a non B&O TV.

I am not sure about the IR receiver: does your system have a separate round IR receiver or does the BV-4 panel have this built in (as a black little dome top right)? If the latter is the case, you will need to get an external IR receiver.

It will take a bit of effort and trial, but it can be done. I am sure some people here can help.

Regards,

Johan

* most of the threads you will find on the forum are about people wanting to use the 4K capabilities of the modern TV, and use the BS3 as a sound hub only

I rant to supplement Johan mentioning 4K.

On a 55” tv there is no need for a 4K signal.

You cannot see the difference between a 4K and Full HD panel. (Unless you have trained your eye to do so)

The system works off the B&O "IR EYE" (wall mounted) and goes to the multipin IR connection on the BS3

Depends on the viewing distance.

I can see a difference because I am close to the TV.

You can use the Beosystem with any Screen - Just use the 4K content natively and run a sound out to the Beosystem. 

Works here with BeoSystem 3 and BeoSystem 4.

You need a Lintronic device if you want to use a Beo 4 only.

I could do with a very detailed explanation on how to do it as I haven't got a clue as to what cables or boxes (Lintron) or other needed, also I wouldn't know where to start if the Beo5 needs programming.

I think I need a "wiz kid" to come and do it for me,

Any volunteers out there ££££££££

It will be a bit technical setup, and I am not sure it will be a good one.

Have you considered a Beovision Eclipse instead?

The problem with the Eclipse is the price tag, plus I don't really care for the look of it and at the end of the day it's an LG TV, I've looked at the Sony Bravia (LG Screen) XR55 A90J and the speakers set behind the panel are a brilliant idea, at least with that concept voices appear to come from the persons lips and not from speakers some 40cm away (bigger the screen bigger the problem)

All I want to do is upgrade to a 55" up to date TV as 55" will fit (width wise within a couple of mm) with the BL 7.2  and I can retain my motorised wall bracket

just need help or someone to link it all together

It is not that hard to do (when you don’t need the 4K-thingy and all the apps etc on the new OLED).

Just do as Johan wrote!

No need for a tv like the Sony with the speakers inside - they would have to be disabled anyway.

But be prepaired for some diy-ing in order to make the OLED-tv fit on the stand above the 7.2.

By the way, I have never heard of a 'motorized wall bracket for a BV4-50'.

 

P.S. If you really need someone to help, it would be helpfull to tell roughly where you are located.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I was thinking of the Sony XR55A90J in case I used it with its own speakers, I also wondered if its speakers could be linked to the B&O speakers.

If you Google "Future Automation PSE90" you will see the stand, if you click on "videos" you can see it in operation, my bracket is programmed into my Beo5 and the screen and BL 7.2 glide from the flat wall position to a position across the corner of the room so you never see the bracket, its a real bit of kit unlike the overpriced "wall hinge" used on the eclipse.

fitting a new screen/tv will be an easy task the BL 7.2 would remain as it is

graham60:

my bracket is programmed into my Beo5

The biggest problem I see is that unless you have a copy of the file programmed into the Beo5, you are going to lose the ability to control the stand, because  even if you (or someone else) reprograms it, you cannot retrieve the file that includes the IR codes for the stand. The Lintronic box will assist  there but only if you have the original IR remote for the stand.

I do happen to have the remote for the wall bracket and I've never thought before but it does control the  stand if needed obviously through the (separate IR) that the Beo5 uses 

I'm not very technical but give me a mangled car and I'll have it back to how it was before the crash

I'm in the UK  WF15 8HU

I'd love to pay someone to get round the B&O obstacles as they don't seem to bother about the losses endured by there loyal customers !!!!!!
