Yes - the small board (attached with Velcro Big Smile ) in the low middle is an AVR microcontroller board. Mid-right, next to the original IR receiver, I added a B&O specific 455 kHz IR module connected to the controller, as well as an IR transmitter LED. The rest is software and some reverse engineering to find a suitable power supply for the added board, so this mod is fully invisible and self contained when I close the lid.

An added neatness when implemented like this is that the controller can spy on the standby LED to know for sure whether the STB is on, or in standby. This is otherwise always a problem because most non-B&O kit has a toggle type power function on the remote; you'll easily end up with the power states being out of sync.

Leslie,

I just saw your beautiful restorations. You are not a technician, you are a craftsman. And there aren't too many workmen around today who can justify that compliment. Keep up the good work!

Your pictures remind me that about 20 years ago, I took a bicycling holiday in Holland. I rode along the canals, and enjoyed it immensely. The Dutch are such nice people!

Great job with the beocenter! Good luck with getting the remote to control it.

If you have time could you share how you did this?

Those look great Leslie.  Did you have to do any work on the insides?

Also, did you have to fix or change out the smoked display panels on any of the pieces?  The reason I ask is because I have a 5500 CD player that has some scratches on the display I would like to fix.

This unit is a new acquisition for me (this is my excuse I am going with).  The unit appears to have some deep scratches in the display area.

On careful examination in daylight, I could see that the original protective tape was still in place so the scratches are just on the tape. Embarrassed

C and a bit of assembly where needed (very rarely with the AVRs, they are fast!). Used to do this for a living for most of the '90s...

...

A good looking stack, Leslie!

I will guess it's a BG3404.  I have two of them, and I think it was a US only model.

That rack is very cool.  That would be perfect for my spare bedroom system:  BG3404 (MMC20EN), BM2400, BC2400, S40.

Correct Rich, my guess would be that electronically it is the same as a Beogram 2404. the only difference being the stylus cartridge used. I had never really given that deck much serious thought until i realised it was datalink compatible with the Beomaster 2400.

Now it is mine complete with a rebuilt power supply and the fault corrected at the record sensor. (dirty magnet and some oxidation on the transfer sensor wire.
