Hi,

I did not use my Beo5 for long time and now wanted to make  a new configuration from the scratch with the Configuration Tool V. 6.84. 

After changing the battery unit and after installing a 32-bit Windows on a computer I was now able to proceed. Smile

Unfortunately I cannot find the right command for the speaker group setting of the Beovision 11. I have got a bluetooth transmitter for headphone use connected to one powerlink out and every time I switch from one source (e.g. TV) to another (e.g. Apple-TV), the speaker group setting (no. 3 - "headphone" in my case) is set back to speaker group 1. To avoid that anyone wakes up in the house I start with muting the sound before choosing the headphone speaker group. Mute isn't resetted when changing the video source.

Now I would like to create 3 buttons (TV headphone, Apple-TV headphone and Bluray headphone) on the Beo5 with a macro muting the sound and setting the speaker group to 3 ("headphone") but I am not able to find the right command.

In the Beo4 command list within the configurationtool I can find a command "speaker" but after choosing the Beovision 11 as video device I am not able to choose a Beo4 IR command. Furthermore, the command described with "speaker" seems to do the same as the sound command, both desriptions "sound" and "speaker" in the Beo4 command list are translated to the same command "sound".

I could create a macro setting the sound to mute, choosing "settings", choosing "audio", choosing "speaker group" and sending cipher 3. But I want to avoid to show the correspondent dialogues on the Beovision screen.

Although the Beo4 command LIST > >SPEAKER shows the speaker group selection dialogue on the Beovision screen too, there must be a possibility to set the speaker group directly. After configuring the Beo5 for the Beovision 11, I can find a button "sound" in the "scenes" menu. When accessing the submenu "sound" behind, there is another button "speaker group" with a subemenu with ciphers 1 to 9 behind. Unfortunately it works not reliably. When changing the sound from e.g. "film" to "adaptive" and changing the speaker group afterwards, it does not work unless I leave the sound menu after having changed the sound profile first before accessing it again to enter the speaker group submenu.

Does anyone know which commands I have to use to switch to a speaker group (e.g. speaker group 3) directly? I have tried to read out the command for the existing speaker group submenu (described above) but the ir code listings for these buttons are empty (??).

Kind regards and many thanks in advance!

Hi,

Sometimes it is easy to determine the command sequence transmitted by using the "Transmitted IR Commands" on the "View"-Tab.

Maybe this hint helps you. If have no acccess to the confic tool at the moment, so I cannot go deeper into the problem.

Hi,

 

Sorry, it took a while, but I figured out the problem.

 

The file "I C:\Bang & Olufsen\Beo5 Configuration Tool\Commands\IR Command table.xml" is in error.

The definition for command "SOUND" is not correkt, it refers to the wrong IR code

please find the followinf line in your file:

  <source_item stCaption="Sound" stShortPressCommand="SOUND" stContinuousPressCommand="" stLongPressCommand="" stShortTip="Toggles between stereo/mono/language or stereo/left/right" stSourceType="SC" stShortPressCommandBit="44 H" stName="SOUND" stBoCommandType="beo4" />

The modify the attribute stShortPressCommand="SOUND" to stShortPressCommand="TURN"

so the line should look like:

  <source_item stCaption="Sound" stShortPressCommand="TURN" stContinuousPressCommand="" stLongPressCommand="" stShortTip="Toggles between stereo/mono/language or stereo/left/right" stSourceType="SC" stShortPressCommandBit="44 H" stName="SOUND" stBoCommandType="beo4" />

Please be aware that changes to this file get lost, when configurator gets an update.
