    So, I need one of these as I was away during the transition years and all my old equipment is MasterLink and B&O no longer sells this critical component.  Is it true that these are no longer consumer updatable?  What’s a man to do then?

    If I buy one, is there a minimum version I should get?  Are there substantial performance differences?  I found an old post here in the forum that cited the final version number but then I lost it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Xavier,

    Both my BLCs are “1.4.3.19864, December 11, 2015” and they work fine.

    Hope this helps. Regards, Johan

    Thank you Johan.

    I’ll be asking any sellers about the software version installed on their BeoLink Converter NL/ML, and will only buy if it is 1.4.3.19864 or higher.

    Hello Xavier,

    Johan has mentioned what is to my knowledge the final sw version. Last year, I had to order a repair of one of my BLC ´ s and they needed to exchange the electronics completely. So, more or less a new unit, and it says sw is on 1.4.3.19864. You should be careful indeed, and buy only a BLC with the latest sw version. If it is on a lower level sw version, it may be so because of faulty  electronics.

    The sw versions of the BLC are, from latest to older:

    1.4.3.19864       – Final version

    1.4.3.19816

    1.4.2.19611

    1.4.1.19522

    Those are the ones I know about.

    Kind regards,

    Rolf

    Ahh, yes, Rolf, thanks for your detailed advice.  The current range of Connected products is set by default on software “auto-update”, so when devices currently updated by B&O cease to be upgraded, most will be left on the final version.

    Which prompts me to ask… at the time the BLCs were current, did “auto-update” exist?  Because then you’d be doubly right to question the full functionality of items being sold with less than the final version!

    (unless the devices were stored in a drawer, one might think).

    Thanks, MM!

    Since these BLC’s had recommended auto-update, most good ones should be on 1.4.3.19864!

    Now I just have to get one.
