      Hi Guy,

      Thank you for your response (I need to go and delete my reply to your other thread now.)

      Tricky to convert the Wii lead to a DVI. Plus I would miss the audio.

      I have been able to get the image to appear by removing and reinserting the yellow video lead. I guess that’ll be it for now unless another Beoworlder pulls a rabbit from a hat.

        Hello all,

        I have a Beo4 upstairs in the living room with my main system, but operate the kitchen BV26 with a Beolink 1000. The kids have a Nintendo Wii connected to the BV26 through the RCA sockets on the side panel which can be activated by the Beo4 with Camera.

        I’m looking for some help to find a key press combo to activate the Camera input on my little BV26-23 with a Beolink 1000 remote control.

        Can it be done?

        Julian

          As far as I know CAMERA is not possible using BL1000.  The Camera socket is suppose to ‘auto sense’ and switch to that input, but I never got that to work on my BV6-26 or 6-23.

          Any chance that you could move the Nintendo to the DVI/PC input and then access using BL1000 by pressing  SHIFT then STORE?

            How about using one of these and plugging into a scart socket. The scarts are usually easier to set up and control. That assumes you have a free scart input.

              Hi @Stoobietoo,

              You’re right; I’m using the two scart inputs already. T’was the right call though if I had a spare input.

                What about finding another Beo4? One can never have enough of those 🙂
