Considering that both the BV14 and Beovision Horizon have been out for several weeks there's been very little feedback on this forum!  Does anyone have either and is in a position report how they have got on?  Or is everyone hanging on for the anticipated new TVs next summer?

I am in the market for a new B&O TV and would like to purchase this side of Xmas.  I have been very disappointed with 'android' in the past (albeit with a tablet), hence I am particularly interested in the new android interface and whether the SW runs well?

Anyone?

I have just been informed that there indeed is a bug in the audio-part of the software and that this will be rewritten. As the connection with the Beoremote One BT concerns; there should not be a connection issue. B&O thinks the problem should be within the TV and that the TV should be shut off from power for a time (+ half an hour). Afterwards the remote should not have connection issues anymore.

I have been using the BV 40 since launch and I do have many software glitches which none of the updates have solved yet.

I am also waiting for update to connect to my wireless speakers eg beosound 1. The TV stops at times without any reason, the TV guide crashed all the time. Sometimes you switch it on and the remote is bklocked after which you have to unplug and plug it again. I can go on and on ...

Dealer says updates are coming and it will take time. Is okay for me but my wife hates it.

Worst is that netflix app does not work on the beovision. 

My dealer told me that B&O recommends to use apple tv. Some argue between B&O and Netflix.

Unbelieveable. I have a subscription with Netflix, I should be able to use it.

The TV itself looks very very nice but is too buggy if you ask me.

I give it another month or so, if the Android glitches are not solved soon I will return it.

good luck

As said before: at this stage you have to contact your dealer. He passes your serial number through to B&O and subsequently the update will be transferred to your Beovision. I guess it wil take a few weeks before the update is automatically transferred to all the NG Beovisions.

ThatGuyFromDenmark:

Bart, which software version is your TV running? Mine downloaded the update, and I have a suspicion that it may have downloaded a previous version of the software as bugs seems to have resurfaced.

The number is QM153E.0.3.0.112, dated 2017-1-27. This one is released 2017-1-31.

This is getting confusing...

Fist software was the version when the BV14 was released.

Received an interim version in December on dealer's request

Then the "Week 5" release around first week of February

And yesterday another update which is dated 2017-1-27...

Still no release dating 2017-1-31 here...

The latest updated is dated 2017-1-27 (perhaps the closing date for the software programmers), but released for customers on 2017-1-31. So your BV was not able to download it before 2017-1-31. Hope this helps.

QM153E.0.3.0.112 is also what I have.

I have to correct my post: Netflix is working only after pulling the plug ("cold start"). Annoying....

Anyone has a better trick?

I downloaded the app through the google play store and as said the app does not work. It shows message that Netflix does not work with this device. Maybe there is a work around but I use my AppleTV for netflix and works fine.

I presume that the Beovision Avant NG as the same engine than BV14 and Horizon.

Do you think it works better or is it just that nobody bought it on this board ?

Just a thought if I ever get tempted (again) by an Avant (if the Oled is not what I expect - extra superior sound/excellent picture/7.500 € max on motorised stand 55").

The engine is the same. I suggest to wait until most of the issues are solved.

Ok. Software update released on 20/2 (Horizon) and 22/2 (BV14 and Avant NG) is a security patch.

Guess that's what you get when you base your system on Android!

Well, I'm glad to see updates, indicates that they are working on the platform.

Karel, the software updates you mention - do they still show the release date as January 27?

 

I reset my Horizon to factory settings, which seemed to speed things up a little, and it has been running fine for a couple of hours tonight.
