I have a Beosound 5 that I purchased recently and I have a few problems. First I cant get the remote control to work, I am using a Beo4. The next problem is that the blue volume indicator only works sometimes, it is often fully extended and finally the net radio operation is often intermittent, sometimes it will drop out for a few seconds but sometimes it can be 20 mins, this seems to happen with most stations. Any assistance would be appreciated

Do you have the Beosound 5 set to the right option? If it is set to the wrong option it will not respond to the Beo 4.

If the speakers are connected directly to the Beosound 5, and not part of a larger system, it should be option 1.

Also, if it is the only music system in your masterlink network (or you don't have a masterlink network), then you need to set "audio master" to "yes" (under settings -> roles ).  This is also where you'll find the options setting "am options".

If you have a ML network with other devices, it would be good to know what you have...  I've seen odd behavior when there are conflicting settings between audio masters.

I actually have the exact same problems with my recently purchased unit with a defect motherboard. I changed MB and now all works, except for remote control and the blue volume that is fully extended all the time.

For now I have only tested it with no speakers, but it is set to Option 1 and Audio Master = YES.

I have a Beosound 5 I purchased new. I have never paid attention to the blue volume line so looked at it after reading this thread. Mine does not change either. It appears when adjusting the volume and disappears when done.

Is it really supposed to change with the volume?

As far as I remember, it changes, if you have the BS5 set up as a standalone audiomaster (with connected speakers).

If you have it integrated with a tv (using ML and the right options) it does not....because the actual volume control takes place in the BV indstead.

Can anyone confirm this - I am not able to test it!

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Mine is connected to a Masterlink System, two Beovisions with connected speakers and and one Active Kit. That matches your understanding and explains why the volume line does not change on mine.

I tried setting audio master to yes, and options 0,1, and 2. No change in the blue volume line. Maybe that is because it senses the master link connection and/or the lack of directly connected speakers regardless of the settings.

Audio master + connected speakers, and the BS5 will allow volume adjustment using the fine toothed "gear" on the control stack (assuming no other masters on the ML if connected to ML).  You may have to cycle power after connecting the speakers.

The wheel also works to adjust speakers connected to my Beovision 10, but the blue volume line remains constant.

I got my blue line working. Audio Master = Yes, Option 1 and connected powerlink speakers directly, no masterlink. Blue line changes depending on volume level. it started working after I added the Powerlink speakers.

The remote issue I have was because of bad 4 pin cable that contains the IR signal.
