I'm a fan of the wheely essence remote. Does anyone know whether it can be paired directly with the Beovision Eclipse and the Beovision 14 to control volume?

You can probably pair it via bluetooth?

If not, stick it on IR mode to do standby, volume, next, previous, radio and cd...

The Beointegration web page has the document that shows the different settings for the Essence Remote to use it with different products. One of the options refers to Beovisions that are being controlled with a Beoremote 1.

I dont think Essence remote will work with Eclipse. Because the BeoVision Eclipse only have Bluetooth remote mode, its not work with IR and the Beovision mode in beoremote one is for IR like BV 11, 12, (system4), beoplay V1. The Beoremote one in bluetooth mode is the only controll for eclipse. 

I dont think Eclipse is compatibly to the essence remote in BT mode. If it is, let me know=) i dont think it works. but if you have the eclipse and essence remote try to pair it up and see.

The Beoremote One can also work with Beosound Essence in bluetooth mode? Right? Never tried a Beoremote one, just a guess. As far as I understand the Beoremote One also works with BV14 and Horizon - these do not have IR.

If a BR1 shall work with an ir-based product (e.g. a BV11) it must be put into ir-mode.

To work with a BT-based tv it must use BT-mode - and be paired with it.

You can use a BR1 with the Essence, if this has an ir-eye connected....and the BR1 is in ir-mode.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

ah okay, same way as using a beo4/beolink1000. Through a BS Essence and BR1 both have bluetooth, it is not possible to use it that way?

Hi Mike,

The Essence remote is such a great design and I'm quite a fan of it also!

Yes, I have tried and tested pairing it to a BeoVision Eclipse and it does work due to the Sound Centre part of the television having the same internal software as the multi-room products. 

The Essence remote will allow you basic functions such as volume control, skipping tracks/channels and muting the sound

To pair the Essence remote via the Eclipse can be done in three ways - one of them is by holding down the Bluetooth pairing button (left side beneath Sound Centre), secondly we can go into the bluetooth pairing menu in the settings of the Eclipse and lastly we can log onto the IP address of the SoundCenter and pair via remote control Bluetooth.

I'm uncertain if it will work with the BeoVision 14, only just due to the fact I've never tested it. I do have a Horizon which I can test the same pairing on - should be the same way to pair to a 14 as it uses the same software platform. 

Thanks

Vish

@Vish

Thanks for testing - that’s great.

But doesn’t it also allow for the Join command?

Please let us know about your results with the BV14 and the Essence Remote.

Would be nice, if these function were a bit more documented from B&O.

 

I guess a big wish from a lot of costumers would be that the BR1/BT could work with the NL-audioproducts such as the M5, the Essence etc etc, too.

But that is for another thread.

@MM 

No worries - always happy to look into testing new ways of using the equipment!

So the Join function toggles the sources once connected to the Eclipse - for example if I'm on LIVE TV on the Eclipse I can change channels via the Essence Remote with the left and right navigation and if I press the "join" button (top button on the Essence) it will then toggle through the internal sources on the Eclipse so if I'm on LIVE TV it then changes to PHOTOS & VIDEOS.

I've also tried to pair the Essence remote to the Horizon platform however :( unfortunately it doesn't seem to work so I guess it is not supported on the BeoVision 14 either.

If I'm being honest, there is are so many features/configurations that we can achieve with B&O equipment creating a manual for all of them would be out of this world!

I would have to say - if you'd like to know any further info, it is just more straightforward to get in contact with your local dealer :) we're always open to new ideas!

Ha, ha - unfortunately most dealers aren’t very neerdy about these things.

Mostly dealers know the straight forward things - which is quite understandable imo.

I do am ‘in contact’ with my local dealer.....often he asks me ’the nerdy things’ 😉

(Or I ‘force him’ to look for infos, that are already accessible)

My experience however, is that - if you want to learn about the ‘hidden features’/the nerdy stuff - you’d better do it on a forum like Beoworld.

 

P.S. Your findings about the Essence Remote and the Eclipse can be very usefull to Eclipse owners.

And it shows that the BV Eclipse is a true B&O-tv....in its own ways.
