Hi BS3 users,

Recently I retired my Beovision 3 ,purchased new Samsung UE55HU7500 , and second hand Beosystem 3 from ebay. Seller declared to be latest edition,fully working.

Intention to integrate with my :Beosound Ouverture,pair of Beolab 8000 as front speakers,pair of Beolab 4000 as rear speakers,and sub Beloab 2.

Once BS3 received,i tried to connect it to Ouverture by Masterlink,all speakers connected to BS3,but there is no sound output.Also connected TV via HDMI,but there is no any display output.

I understand I have to make setup on BS3,but i am not able to get it displayed on the screen,there is no output from BS3 to the screen.

Anybody having patience to let me know how to make proper cabling/connectios ,at least to check if my

BS3 is working or not.

Answers highly appeciated

You need an ir receiver ( either part of the BV4 screen, or separate) to be able to switch the unit on, there is no ir receiver in the BS3. When the unit switches on the LED (next to the mains input socket) pulses from red to green until the unit is up and running, then the LED stays red.

Unfortunately no, you need a ir receiver that connects to the ir input ( rs232) socket. An ir blaster is a transmitter which controls an external stb or other non B&O unit.

You should call a b&o dealer to order an IR receiver and cable and tell him it is for a BeoSystem 3. While all of the b&o "hockey puck" IR receivers look similar, I believe that you need the one with extra wires for light sensing for the BeoSystem 3. Only a b&o sensor is compatible. It will probably cost around $100 and take a week or two for delivery. It's highly unlikely that you will find one in eBay.

Oakley:

To sum up "how to on BS3"

You'll need an IR Receiver without Auto Contrast if you are connecting the BS3 to a NON B&O panel.

Connect the IR Receiver to the system 3 using a 3mm headphone jack plug. Not the RS232

You turn on the system and go from there.

I'd also suggest to disable auto contrast in the Service Menu.

For multi room audio distribution, EVERY source connected to the BS3 has to be also its analogue connections for distributing sound thru Master Link.

Be sure about this. I have a non-B&O TV and the IR receiver without auto-contrast would not work. I had to use the one with auto-contrast, and then I disabled the auto-contrast in the settings.

It works like a charm. I've done a few "3rd Party Screen" setups w/ BeoSystem 3, including our showroom. IR only worked like a charm. Part number 8087030, you'll also need a bit of a heaphone wire with a jack. I'm unable to attache the pin out image, but if you're interested I'll email it to you.

I'm 100% sure about this. I've done a few theater setups like that including our own showroom. 

You need Link Eye P#8087030 and a bit of 3 conductor wire with a 3mm headphone jack at the end of it. I'd attache the pin out image but I'm unable to. If you need/want it, I can email it to you.

As I recall, I think you you first need to connect an analog video input to the BeoSystem 3 -- such as using the yellow cable on a dvd player in order to get an initial signal. Then, you press "menu" twice to get into the setup screen. You might try that.

I"m recalling that the DVD input using an initial analogue signal is the safest choice for getting an initial signal for setting up the system. I would have the dvd player on already when you hit DVD on the remote to start up the BeoSystem 3. You might need to try different input ports (e.g. AV1, AV2, etc) to get the right one. May trying other commands such as TV, DTV, etc. It would be nice if you knew what the prior owner had assigned to each port -- such as if he had DVD assigned to AV2.

StUrrock,I am not going to bother You,and any others similar to You.

Is it so hard to answer simple question: What ir receiver I need to keep my Beosystem 3 running?
