      Hi Beo Fellows,

      I am trying to integrate my Beosound9000 a bit deep into my setup (I had so far a digital coax to toslink to a core setup running – which was great but gave me no control of the BS9000 from other NL Product)

      My goal setup now should be as this:

      One BS9000 in the same room with a beosound moment. Speakers connected to the moment: bl2 and bl8000 via powerlink. BS9000 connected via masterink directly to bl converter ml / nl – converter connected to ethernet.

      3 x M3 – one each in the kichen, the bathroom, the bedroom all with essence remote

      Lounge: beo core with bl2 and beogram 6500 connected to line in on the core. Essence remote connceted to the core

      Office: essence mk2 connected to bl11 and two bl4000 via powerlink plus essence remote


      So the BLC NL / ML is new to the setup and is giving me problems. I have set it up as A Slave. The BS9000 should be the Master in the Masterlink (I was hoping) and I only need to distribute the CD and Radio Source from ML to NL – I have no need to send NL sources to Masterlink. I mapped everything and can connect to the ML / NL Converter from my Networklink Products and also add the Sources to the local source lists but when I try activating the sources for example from the essence mk2 in the office the following happens: speakers turn on, then after a short while turn off again. The BS9000 is not activated or started up. Same behaviour for RADIO and CD Source. Checking the log of the BLC NL/ML I see the following message every time (with other messages of course):

      „Source selection for ML player CD received with error: Player select error, ML Audiomaster doesn’t exist“

      here is a screen of the log:


      When trying to activate the CD Source via the B&O App with the BLC NL/ML selected the log looks like this:


      The Socket Error makes me think there is something wrong with my network setup?

      I am happy about any help and suggestions. Just FYI would be no problem for me to move the speakers from the Moment to BLC NL /ML if needed.

      Thanks a lot!!

        so, after a lot of investigation I narrowed the problem down to the following:

        After a lot of testing I found out that the only problem in my ML / NL Setup seems to be the BS9000 – setup works perfect when I exchange the BS9000 for a BS4 –

        the BS9000 will keep showing – when going to the Error Log in Test Mode – ML Error 32 which means ”Configuration not possible” – so it is not taking on its proper ML role as A Master – Option Settings do not help, tried all – also tried with and without speakers connected.

        The BS4 pluged to the same ML plug – in exchange for the BS9000 – works perfectl and I can activate CD anf Radio Sources from all my NL Products

        Any ideas what the reasons for ML Error 32 can be on the BS9000? Can it be simply faulty?
