      Dear all in the fount of all B&O knowledge.

      I have a DVD2 and a HRD2 which appears I might be able to use with my Beoplay V1 television.

      The guide says there is an AV socket, rather than being a more familiar Scart socket it has a round AV socket which says you can connect analogue equipment, but “additional adaptor might be required”.  Now is this a simple Scart to Round AV cable or is there a need for a magic box?

      If this is just s cable, that looks doable, but the deal breaker would the instructions to ‘play’ not be transmitted to my B&O analogue kit via this cable, the effort would be wasted.

      can anyone shed any light?

      Gary

        Have a look at this thread: https://archivedforum2.beoworld.org/forums/p/8855/78144.aspx#78144

        The AV signal will be one-way (into the TV), but the second-to-last post suggests that you may be able to control the B&O devices (if AVL means datalink in this context*)

        * EDIT: I had a look at the SCART to mini-AV pinout connections in the Beolink Handbook v1.9 (page 128) and it shows that SCART pin 8 (which is used for datalink) is mapped across to mini-AV pin 6 and is also labeled as AVL.  The part number of the official B&O cable (3m version) is 6271217 D.

          Here’s the full pinout diagram. For some reason I couldn’t take a pdf snapshot yesterday! SCART to Mini AV pinout

          I was just thinking about this further and reckon that the SCART connections in the diagram are wrong. As far as I know, SCART audio out is pins 1 and 3 (not 2 and 6) and composite video out is pin 19 (not 20).  Hence I would hope that B&O’s cable would have the Brown, Black and Orange cables to SCART pins 1,3 and 19 respectively.

          EDIT:  I just worked out the anomaly!  The diagram says ‘Pinout shown for 6271215’ which of course is B&O’s cable with a female SCART socket.  Hence connecting a further male to male SCART into the device would ‘correct’ the connections from input to output.  I can relax now! ?

                  Fabulous Guy.

                  Just managed to pick up the very same Item number 6271215 cable lurking on eBay this evening for £15, which I will have fun playing with when it arrives.

                  Thanks for everything

                  Cheers, Gary
