How can I integrate a 55" Oled TV into the system that I have, all I want to do is replace the aging BV4 50" with an up to date 55" Oled TV (looking at the Sony Bravia XR55 A90JU "LG Panel") my problem is that I need it to work in my Beosystem 3 set up, this set up includes B&O Overture, B&O DVD2,  Humax Freesat, Lutron Light panel and the remote wall bracket, everything is programed to and operated by the Beo5 remote, the system also uses the 8000s, 6000s, BL 7.2 and BL 2 sub. speakers

I am not very technical when it comes to cables, adapters etc. that may be needed in the integration, I don't mind having to use two remotes (better with one !!) but I would like everything to work as it does now with surround sound, the system switching between video and audio,  with powering off etc.

Anyone out there knows how to do it !!!!!  with a detailed  "how to"

I would even pay someone to do it for me 

HELP NEEDED, THANKS

If you Google "Future Automation PSE90" you will see the stand, if you click on "videos" you can see it in operation, my bracket is programmed into my Beo5 and the screen and BL 7.2 glide from the flat wall position to a position across the corner of the room so you never see the bracket, its a real bit of kit unlike the overpriced "wall hinge" used on the eclipse.

fitting a new screen/tv will be an easy task the BL 7.2 would remain as it is

Wow - that is a monster - I did not know of that, so thanks for pointing at it.

Yes, that indeed seems to be an easy task.

 

I hope you find someone in your region to help you - and look forward to see some pics of your project later on.

Hi Graham60,

 

I'm the wrong side of the country to you really (I'm down in Bristol), but I have a Beosystem3 myself and am familiar with the obstacles you are facing. I don't necessarily have the answers you seek, but I am willing to talk with you on the phone and discuss it. There are ways to trick the beosystem3 into turning ON/OFF non B&O success, but it would take careful planning and probably be best done in stages.

 

Let me know if you'd like to talk it through on the phone

 

Thanks,

Hi David,

sound interesting that you are able to trick the beosystem 3. Would be you able to elaborate more?

I can't take credit for working it out. Nigel seems to be the man for the job here. But when I get time I want to rework this to work on an Arduino. Useful links:

Hope that helps.

Hi David,

I am also over the other side, down in Exeter, but could possibly help with the programming of your Beo5 if you choose to go dwon that route. The Beo5 should be able to control a Sony (or other OLED) TV providing the remote for it is IR.


Did a B&O dealer programme the Beo5 for you? If they did, you could ask them for a copy of the file (your XML File) on a USB stick and then, with a copy of the Beo5 Configuration Tool, you can update the remote by amending that file and downloading it to the remote. There is a bit of a learning curve but it is doable if you get the file from your dealer. If they do give it to you, you could email it to me to take a look at and see if I can assit.

Stoobie,

I'm not the original OP just trying to help like you. 

I 100% agree with you though, I think reconfiguring/setting up the Beo5 to do the heavy lifting here is better than trying to reinvent the wheel and tricking the BS3 to turn the TV off and on. I'm not familiar with the Beo5 as don't currently own one, but It seems like the easier option for now/permanently.

 

I have the capability to read IR codes/back them up/get the raw codes from remotes if that helps. 

 

I'm happy to help where/if I can.

Thanks David,

I think what I may do in the near future is to buy a Sony XR55A90 tv and then attempt the task of integrating it to the BS3, if it doesn't work then at least I will have a decent TV, it may be a few weeks as I have other more pressing things going on at the moment.

I would certainly appreciate any help possible and will contact you with my tel. no. 

Thanks for your response

The dealership where I purchased most of my equipment and who programmed the Beo5 were in Lincoln and they shut down some years ago

Just a thought,

If you instead buy a LG G1, you will have the possibility to integrate it with B&O in the future.

But be prepaired for some diy-ing in order to make the OLED-tv fit on the stand above the 7.2.

You can buy these ready to be mounted on the original stand on the internet at two different shops…

I did give the LG tv some consideration but the Sony looks the better tv and the speakers behind the screen are impressive with speech actually coming from peoples mouths instead of a speaker some distance away !!

Hi graham60, about these Sony speakers behind the screen: the TV you mentioned has an input port to drive them from an external source. The port is a 3.5mm stereo mini jack if I am not wrong. It is meant to be used with Sony equipment, but possibly you could drive it from the BS3, if the signal voltage levels permit. But again, this would need a bit of research, enthusiasm, trials, menu settings, BS3 speaker calibration and a special correctly wired cable (powerlink to minijack). And somehow I sense that you are not into such hassle!

I love BeoLabs, but I surely would also appreciate the clean look of a screen only!

Sorry if this only complicates things for you.

i suppose I could get rid of the BL 7.2 speaker if I could fit the Sony TV speakers into the BS3 system but I'm not that clued up as to how to do it, removing the BL 7.2 and its bracket wouldn't be a problem but getting the Sony speakers to work in conjunction with the BL8000s and 6000s probably will be !!!!!!!!

I’d do some tests before ditching the 7-2.

That is a quite potential speaker (as a center speaker has to be) - I am sure the Sony-speaker-solution won’t come close.
