What is… This?June 1, 2023 at 7:10 pm #20982
just a ML junction box attached with double sided tape. One of the more simple black boxes 😉June 1, 2023 at 7:22 pm #20984
Oh goddamnit, you caught the Warwickshire flu! ;-D

not even with BEO4 remotes?
Ah but they are all hidden away in boxes so I don’t have a clue how many there are!
from left to right 1614, 1615 and 1610 some of them without official labels, and some in different software revisions.
I hadn’t seen 1610s before, hence had to find additional info here: https://archivedforum.beoworld.org/forums/t/39163.aspx

I’m not really sure if they are useable without an AV9000, but I will of course try to test a few things with themJune 1, 2023 at 7:40 pm #20990

Really? I believe that this “1-2-3” switch is already hitching you, right?June 1, 2023 at 7:43 pm #20992

I will admit that is my favourite feature; could be so useful for something …June 1, 2023 at 7:44 pm #20993

Looking forward to it! 😀June 1, 2023 at 7:49 pm #20995

I once heard that 1, is Masterlink mode, 2 is Nespresso mode and 3 is Dyson mode, but I’m not really sure, the guy and me were really drunk at the time.June 1, 2023 at 8:20 pm #20997June 1, 2023 at 8:24 pm #20998
I think 2 and 3 requires even more black boxes

Now it’s going to be exciting to see if it will also work with the BLC 1615 as that combination could make a ML link room with local datalink inputs
Time to do some testing with some of the new equipment.
BLC1615 (SW 1.5) AAL connected to MCL screw terminal on MCL2AV:
BLC1615 pin 2 – > MCL2AV Brown GND R, Grey GND L, Shield GND
BLC1615 pin 1 – > MCl2AV Yellow L
BLC1615 pin 4 – > MCL2AV Green R
BLC 1615 pin 6 – > MCL2AV White Data
As audiomaster I used BLC1611. MCL2AV in option 1.5
I works. I get sound from ML through BLC1615 to the MCL2AV. It only reacts to audio commands. also tried to change to option 2.5 with no change.
Edit 2023.06.05 Tried the same test with BLC 1615 Sw 1.0 and 1.1, and this also works
Also tried it with a BLC1614 (SW 1.0) while I had it all lined up, and it worked the same as the 1615.

And now for some BLC 1614 testing
Beocenter 6 (opt. 2) – ML – BLC 1614 – AAL – iphone.
Works with audio commands just as it did with the BLC 1611, so perfect for use for extra audio input on a ML TV.
For fun I also tried the BLC 1610 with the switch in different positions, but no response. One thing I hadn’t noticed before about the BLC1610 is the lack of power connection, and that might be why it only may work with an AV9000 system. Will open one up them up at one point at se whats inside
Beoport (opt. 6) – ML – BLC 1614 – AAL – iphone.
Working with video commands, bit not with audio commands for some reason, but can still give an extra local input to a Beoport setup.
Will also test the BLC 1614 with the BL3500 MKI later.June 4, 2023 at 10:58 am #21048
Was a little curious about the BLC 1610 so I had to open one up to see what is ticking inside:
All pins in use on the two ML connectors are wired in parallel, so just kind of an internal junction box.
What is unusual with the ML connectors is that pin 3, 4, 5, 6 and 12 is all connected where pin 12 is supply voltage +, and most of the others are normally no used. This however explains where this box is getting power as the same pins are supplying +12V on the diagram for the AV9000
One other curiosity is that next to the external 1-2-3 switch is an internal switch with 2 positions:
These are named:
- Central 1610
- Local 1611
Not really sure if that means it will function like a 1611 if it is in that position.
Might do some more testing around that at a later point.June 4, 2023 at 11:35 am #21049
Will also test the BLC 1614 with the BL3500 MKI later.
Just did that, and as expected it does not work. The BLC 1614 is missing the supply voltage in the ML connection.
Might work with an ML powerbox, but these seems harder to find (at least here in Denmark) than a BLC1611.July 21, 2023 at 11:35 am #22302
Just aquired a BS Overture with some issues for tape and CD, but the ML part of it is working fine, so I thought I might do some testing with that and the BLC 1611 and BLC 1614 boxes.
BS Overture A-opt. 2 – ML – 1611 – iphone
All video commands will activate the video input on the BLC 1611. No audio commands will do anything. Guess that the audio commands are all assigned to the internal sources, and the AUX input. But a great way to get an extra aux input for a BS Overture.
Same setup but with a BLC 1614 showed the same result, which also makes sense as there is a Audiomaster in the setup.
Also tried a quick teest with one of the BLC 1610 boxes with an external 12V supply, and set to local 1611 and tried the 1-2-3 switch in all positions but with no response. Might be that I also need a -12V supply to make it work, or that particular box is defect, or that it will not work at all.
