Dear app users, here's is a summary of some issues/comments I could find in previous app versions related threads that are still valid with the new app iteration.
I may have missed some, or some have been fixed since, so feel free to update the list while keeping all the items grouped for better reading (copy paste with changes).

Hopefully someone in B&O still reads this forum and cares.

Issues (new, re-introduced and on-going):

  • iPad version: Cannot put products into standby individually, power icon missing per product. Power icon is only available for global standby action.
  • Cannot get the app to control BeoSystem 4500 and BeoSound 2300, each connected to an NL/ML converter.
  • Apps freezing when Internet access is not available while local network access to products is functional.
  • Now playing screen: moving forward/backward within a DLNA track does not work as it should
  • Now playing screen: when changing a DLNA track, album cover is not displayed back until now playing screen is minimized/maximized <-- Issue seen with PLEX DLNA server but not with MinimServer
  • Music browsing: white back (<) and more (...) buttons are not visible when artist/album image background is white <--- Version 3.00 introduces a black back symbol (<) while keeping the more icon (...) white, no comment ....
  • Music browsing on iPhone: top artist/album image overlaps top screen informations
  • Now playing screen: icon depicting the product flashing for a fraction of a second.
  • IOS 3D Touch "shutdown all" option does not do what it is supposed to do but simply opens the B&O App (case opened by mbolo01 - Dec 2019)
  • Multiroom icon not always displayed against products member of a multiroom experience
  • Play queue: When inserting music track(s) to a product play queue, the play queue is emptied prior to loading new content to it which is the correct behavior, but when a TuneIn radio has been played after a music source, loading new music content to the product no longer clears the play queue but instead inserts the new track(s) after the latest music track played (case opened by mbolo01 - Dec 2019)
  • Cover-Art is not displayed when using Airplay while it is when using other music sources such as Chromecast or DLNA.
  • Product Multiroom screen: When a given product is streaming Airplay flow, its Multiroom page indicates that other products cannot join when such source is in use, which is obviously wrong (when products are correctly configured) and which works despite the displayed message.

Note: I have opened a case (#200208-000081) on Feb 8th 2020 for all the points above but the "Cannot get the app to control BeoSystem 4500 and BeoSound 2300, each connected to an NL/ML converter." that i cannot support as I don't have such equipment and "Now playing screen: when changing a DLNA track, album cover is not displayed back until now playing screen is minimized/maximized" which may be a PLEX DLNA poor implementation.

Issues fixed in 3.1:

  • Play Queue: Album Artist is shown for each track instead of Track Artist like in the now playing screen. When listening to Compilations that have "Various Artists" for Album Artist, identifying the track artist in the Play Queue is not possible which is a pity.
  • (introduced in 3.0): Now playing screen: back arrow (<) is black on a dark grey background, hardly visible.
  • (introduced in 3.0): iPad landscape mode the product images are overlapping in the most recent versions.

Issues fixed in 3.00:

  • Beolink settings: When disabled, Integrated devices monitoring option does not stay disabled after app restart (case opened by mbolo01 - Dec 2019)

On-going requests for enhancement by BeoWorld forum members:

  • Ability to “join” NL streams from the app.
  • Lack of virtual keyboard for the Eclipse when a menu where text input is required is encountered, e.g. search field
  • Split view and slide over on the Apple iPad
  • Deezer Flow
  • Possibility to reduce local source list in the now playing screen
  • Genre overview - with much smaller pictures per Genre, so that you see more content without scrolling, e.g to follow the Deezer design (as you did with Artists using round circles instead of squares). Deezer is using small rectangle instead of squares for displaying genre.
  • Clearer multiroom screen, you see all groupings at once, without changing selected products
  • Possibility to alias sources' names, e.g change BS Core "Line In" to "BG 4000"
  • More consistency across screen designs, e.g.  when you choose "show all“ at "Deezer Selection“ the displayed list looks different than all the other lists displayed at  "show all“, why?
  • Now playing screen: changing track by pressing on the image is far too sensitive, lack of inertia
  • Dark mode

Once again the beta version is not up to date with the production version.

Oh - why, guys?

(Do they want us to stop being beta testers?).

There is a tv - and there is a BV.
