Hi there

Just to let you know that I created an integration between Masterlink Gateway and Beolink Gateway with Home Assistant with some really cool functionality to tap directly into the Masterlink bus and enable all kinds of fun integrations like controlling your digital streaming from your old school Beolink devices.

Hi,

 

yes it is a BeoMaster 5 with a Beosound 5.

I only have the BM5 in the test configuration (yaml) and on the BLGW:

mlgw:

 host: 192.168.0.50

 username: admin

 password: admin

 use_mllog: true

 default_source: RADIO

 available_sources:

  - RADIO

  - CD

 devices:

  - name: Beomaster 5

    mln: 1

BM5 as audiomaster on option 1.  The other devices are not configured in the test version.

 

In the original configuration the videomaster is a BLC NL/ML set in that role enabling my NL products

to communicate with my ML products where the BM5 is the CD source, still audiomaster but option 0

as there are no speakers attached, the BLC has the speakers.  They are in the same room but I don't

think that you can choose videomaster options on the BLC. If you want me to test a different configuration

I'm pleased to assistSmile

Hi Baaz

Before asking you to connect other devices, I'd like to know which ones you have. If you have a Beovision and a beolab 3500 available, you could try connecting the BS5 / BM5 (option 0) to the Beovision (option 2) in the main room and the beolab in a secondary room. BS5

sources: Nradio, NMusic, CD ....

BV sources: TV, DTV, ...

In the blgw you should set your favorites, through them the names and icons of the tv channels should appear.

Let's try.


p.s. let me know what your final configuration should be, so if you want, I can help you set it up better.

Hello again,

 

I've only got audio sources, on the ML side the BS5/BM5, three BL3500 and PowerLink speakers. On the NL side the BLGW, BLC, Beosund 2, Core and a Beoplay M3. You could might have configured the BLC as a "real" videomaster but there are no options to put it in 2-mode, unless I'm missing something.

Hi

Let's try to test the following configuration:

BLGW only the VideoMaster and BL3500 must be configured (in this specific case the AudioMaster is dependent on VideoMaster)

Main room

AudioMaster option 0: Bs5 with the various audio sources (CD, Nradio/Radio, NMusic/A.Mem....)

VideoMaster option 2 (see attached image): BLC with beolab and ir eye connected (it is a specific ir eye for the blc, if you have it it would be better, but maybe it could also work only with the app) Configure the various NL sources as ML video sources.(V.Mem -->TuneIn.....).

(I corrected the post by crossing out a sentence describing something out of standard, you could try it but I don't think it works.)


Secondary room

AudioSlave (option 5 or 6): BL3500.

 

Once the various tests have been carried out, send me the log in txt format.

Thanks

Lele

p.s. If you need the BLC setup manual, just let me know.

Aha! didn't realize IR option and role option where the same.

So BM5 Audiomaster option 0, BLC videomaster option 2, BL3500 option 6.

Sources CD and RADIO

Start the BLC and channel shows at once, shifting to CD no information about the track.

I can see in the log that the information is there about the song playing. Otherwise all functions work.

There are errors in the log but I think that refers to something else.

Hi Baaz

I figured out what's wrong,

You have set the NMusic source as CD.

I modified the plug to make it work in this configuration as well.

Download the new version from my github repository.

Let me know if it works.

It works! Smile

Thank You all!

 

I really hope this helps for other installations as well.

 

Now I'll add the other products and add functions.

 

Take care
