Hi everyone,

This is my first post, and am hoping someone can help me with what is hopefully a simple connection question.

I would like to connect a BeoSound 3000 into a BeoVision Avant 55NG so that it can play through the various surround sound speakers.  I have the NL/ML BeoLink convertor but lost as to how I connect this as there are so many options, and am struggling to make sense of the manual or any links online.

Master Link (?) from BeoSound into NL/ML is ok as there is only one option, but is it then r45 to TV, and if so, into and from which connection options?

Any help really appreciated, and apologies if this is an obvious question/answer.

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom

Do you have the RJ45 from your converter into the TV directly?

It’s supposed to go into a switch or router on the same network as the Avant?

Hi Seanie, thank you for replying.

It's not connected to the TV at the moment as wasnt sure where to connect, and was running out of plugs.

Does this mean I need to connect the NL/ML into a router and not the TV?   Makes sense as I had never realised that NL meant Linked to the Network!

Thank you so much - think this could be the answer.

Just need to figure a way to connect it now... maybe via tp-link

Connection:

1. BS3000 - ML connect to - BLC (Beolink converter NL/ML) - LAN connect to your network

2. BV Avant - preferabel LAN connect to the same Network as your BLC (otherwise use WiFi)

 

Setup:

Open setup of the BLC (B&o app beter easier on a Mac/PC).

I presume you have all the speakers connected to the Avant.

Goto tab: Configuration, sub tab Settings:

1. check ML enabled

2. ML-role = V Master

3. Confirm with Save (do this with every change, otherwise the settings may not be changed)

4. Goto sub tab Experience mapped to NL

5. enable/check the sources of the BS3000 (CD, Radio, Aux). Note: you can rename the sources to, for example, CD3000, AUX3000, etc. 

6. Confirm with Save

 

How to Play CD/Radio/Aux

1. open B&o app 

2. add the BLC (only the first time needed)

3. goto Home

4. choose BLC

5. tab the BLC name on the black stroke (left below on the app)

6 choose "..."

7. select your source (Radio/cd/aux), the source should start to play

8. when play, select "multiroom" (the two rectangles)

9. add the Avant

10. point 8 and 9 can be replaced, by selecting JOIN on your Beoremote One

Wow! Thank you so much for such a detailed and comprehensive answer.

You’re right, all speakers are through tv and tv is LAN connected to network via an extender.

Will buy some LAN cables or another tp-link extender tomorrow, and work through these steps.

Really pleased as have never been able to work this out before! Will be very happy to post that it’s up and running.

Thanks again

Tom

Happy days

I had an avant 55 for years beautiful TV.

Sometimes I miss my old stereo but have no need for one anymore.

Coincidentally, with this thread appearing recently, I received a converter yesterday from my dealer.

I have been trying to get it set up. I have an Essence, V1, Core, and M5. On the Masterlink side I have a BV10, BV7, BS3000, BS5, and an active kit.

I have successfully set it up so that the BS3000 and BS5 can be played through the NetLink products.

I have not been able, however, to get the NetLink products to play through the MasterLink products.

That should be possible, correct? In the Masterlink settings of the converter I have set DVD and DVD2 to control Music and TuneIn from the Core. I am very new at this, less than 24 hours.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Edit…

Active kit now works, can play NetLink sources through it.’now, I am just stuck trying to get NetLink sources to play through speakers connected to BV10.

Not sure about DVD2, but DVD will not work this way (presuming the BV7 has a DVD unit). If a DVD command is send this way to ML, which source should start, the DVD of the BV7 or/and Music of the Core? A contradiction!

You should, instead of DVD/DVD2, use ML sources not physically available (PC or V.AUX2).

 

Note: because your BS5 in combo with a BS3000, you can not set the ML role to Source Center. Then the NL sources could be programmed as N.Radio/N.Music in the ML side of the system; and because of the BS3000 the CD/Radio command can't be used..

The solution to this issue would be introducing a second BLC.

Thanks! My BV7 does not have the built in DVD player. I will try other commands as you suggest.

DVD did work in the room with the Active Kit. Now have a much more major problem. All of the settings seem to be the same to me, but must not be…LOL.

The BS3000 and BS5 will now not turn on..If I try to use CD as a source via NetLink on the V1…..the V1 displays CD but the 3000 does not turn on. Even if I sit in the same room as the 3000, 10 and 5, they will not turn on using the BR1. The BV10 also will turn on.

Everything is working again. Found a box that was checked in menu assigning a source to tv. Removing that seemed to solve problem. Except, still no NL sources on BV10. DVD works to start a NL source on Active kit. Neither DVD or PC will start NL source on BV10.

I am not sure. I will take another look at it. I am not sure if I fully understand that menu.
