Is the Beocenter1 remote control useful for anything other than Beocenter1?

I wouldn't say useful, but there is a sequence of key presses that sets up a Beo1 to control other TVs as follows:

Press Standby+Display+Stop at the same time

Press Stop and hold the button whilst pressing double arrow right, then release both

Then press Display once

I had to try this a few times before getting it to work, but even then the functionality is very limited!

Thank you! That is, anyway  all?

Useless but goodlooking little bugger.

Hi,

I used to have an interest in that remote to control Beocenter 6 basic functions: Volume, Source, Stand.

because it is better looking that a beo4 (even if the beo4 is better looking than…)

A member from Beoworld lend me one. My conclusion was it is quite useless.

I replaced it with a well programmed Beo6 with unresponsive screen but that do a perfect job at what is needed.

I did see a thread in the forum years ago where someone took one apart and inserted a ATV remote (white one) into the case to control their ATV/Mac Mini.

The buttons all lined up inside and it worked.

What a pity the pictures are missing. I did consider getting a Beo1 to convert but never got round to it .

I eventually got a Beo5 and Beo6. I now also have a Lintronic, and getting to grips with that. You can change what you can control with the Beo1 using the Lintronic including non B&O. But as there are so few buttons you are still restricted to how many functions.
