NL/ML Converter not working, hoping those of you with more experience can help.

My setup is as follows:

BS9000 (with BL8000 directly connected) has a ML connection directly to NL/ML converter.

NL/ML Converter connected to Apple Airport Extreme.

BV11-55 connected to Airport Extreme.

BS9000 standalone works just fine, BV11 works fine, including Webmedia etc. so pretty sure the connection between BV11 and Airport Extreme is fine (Youtube streaming from iPad fine, BeoRemote app works etc.)

The BV11 also definitely 'sees' the NL/ML Converter, it allows me to select it in the Product Integration B&O Connect submenu.

Yet when I select AV > Radio / Cd etc. on Beo4 I get a screen that displays Radio From Beolink Converte NL/ML and then after a short while it says Failed... Grrrrr...

I once or twice had it showing Connecting (in lieu of failed) but that also changed to Failed after 30 seconds or so.

Some thoughts,

Do I have to connect the equipment in a specific sequence?

Do I have the turn the bits and pieces on in a specific sequence?

What is the function of the reset button on the NL/ML Converter? (If you press and hold, the small green Light goes dark and then flashes red once - if I release it changes back to green. If I keep holding it flashes red twice, three times etc. does that make a difference?)

Should the BV 11 / BS900 be in particular option settings? BV11 currently Option 1 and BS9000 also option 1 since although technically in two rooms it's an open plan environment so any keypress on the remote is seen by both.

Any thoughts?

 

PS. The Airport Extreme is set up as a router (i.e. it has DHCP active and issues IP's handles NAT etc.) - direct cable connection from the WAN Port to Internet. I assume this is correct - saw a diagram to this effect somewhere on this forum.

Converter is connected to the BV11 with RJ45 from the ethernet port. Cable goes to my router (Zyxel) and from there to the NL/ML converter with RJ45 aswell. The NL/ML is hooked up to the socket unit of my BeoCenter 2 with masterlink. I have tried with an extra router as you mention, Millemissen, but without any luck. As when I access the user interface I just plug in an ethernet cable from the Network link plug from the NL/ML converter to my PC. Which slot should I use for connecting the NL/ML to my router then?

Does this mean that: 

The converter is directly connected to the BV11?

If yes, how is the tv connected to the internet?

If you can wait half an hour/one hour, please? Then I will be back!

I will have to change to my Mac, this is too much for the iPad - might post a couple of pictures as well.

Greetings MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Hi Millemissen,

No, both the BV11 and the converter is connected to the same router (BV11 gets internet with WLAN connection). I would be a huge help with some pictures. I'll wait for those :)

Frederik Beoberg:

I have access to the interface now, thanks! It says that the software version is 1.0.0.0.
Automatic update was set disabled. But when I ask to update the software it does nothing.

Obviously, as long as your ML/NL is directly conneted to the PC, there is no internet connection ... Smile

After having set automatic update to "on", restore your "standard wiring" via router.
Then your converter can access your network and is also able to get updates via internet.

The update may take up to an hour ...

Frederik, is the router itself connected to the Internet?

I ask since you mention the BV11 gets Internet via WLAN which is strange if you already have a LAN cable connection - unless that is for a Beolink subnet not exposed to the Internet

I still have the same problem that you had. How do you exactly update the software of the NL/ML converter? Is there a way to see what software version it is running?
