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.

Can't see much new?

BLGW app appears on the TV menu, and now on my remote....with no option to remove it?

More control in the Beomusic app, but no control in the X app, unless I am missing something...

Here's what I found so far:

- BLGW on the remote ... but I don't have Gateway... and I can't remote the item on the remote.

- Some UHD HDMI settings.

Probably more stuff but that what I found at first sight...

Karel.

First finds:

- Picture / sound settings for NL products

- Song title on screen when connected to NL source (no artist name, as on other non android NL tv's)

- Netflix app worked (could be one time only)

- Start pattern play from Moment starts tv up correctly

- Sub kicks in correctly after selecting relevant speaker group

Hopefully there is more under the booth..picture wise and stability Smile

Netflix worked for me yesterday after the update.. But there's a good chance that it stops working with the all familiar error....

This and the limited download capacity is why I changed from TV-provider a while ago, now it's integrated in the decoder I get from the new provider. And working without errors...
