    I’ve replied! Once we have the solution we’ll post it here so that others can benefit. In the meantime (as put in my PM) I think your MX7000 is the older Type 33xx which is designed for the Beolink 1000 remote. It should be possible to do what I explained with the Mk1 AV button Beo4, but we are also hampered by the lack of a user guide for the early MX7000 – the ones available on Beoworld are for the later Type 78xx and 87xx versions designed for Beo4 operation.

    Do you mean Service manual or just user guide/manual? because I have a square MX7000 manual here that says its for either the Beolink 1000 or Beolink 5000 and has a part number of 3501413 (0936)

    Would that help you?

    Cool, I have GTA: Vice City and 3, any particular spots, If you take another video of both etc I can try and replicated the same scene/see if I get the same issue.

    Where are you based? I have an MX7000 and MX8000 and whilst I’ve barely used the 8000 yet, its low hour and the colours are stunning!

    Which PS2 games did you try, I can compare on my MX8000, I see what you mean in the video, that’s a really weird issue.

    Yeah, not trying to scare anyone, but it is only a matter of time before screen stock drys up. I’ve purchased a new screen on Ebay and fitted, it is quite simple, the BEO4 remote always annoyed me it has that nice big screen and a single line of text in the middle, it would be quite cool if you could one day do an e-ink replacement and fill out more of the screen. 🙂

    Very VERY interesting! Incredible to see 2 different front face plates for the Mk1 displays! Also interesting to see the ‘big chip’ it is not the same as the MK3 I’ve checked, and I suspect that is the same as the MK2 (although I haven’t checked that yet. As I said on your Avant post, reach out directly I’d enjoy having a proper chat 🙂

    Thanks,

    Hi again,

    I have 2 Avant 32s and a BV3-32, my friend also has 2 Avant 32s.

    We absolutely love them and another video I need to do is re-capping and the full shabang or re-calibrating one, they can be quite involved. Where are you actually based? reach out to me directly, I’d like to have a proper chat with you about all the shared interests ha.

    Thanks,

    I have both BL6000 and BL3000 and Penta 2s. Whilst I have’t listened to my BL3000s for a long time now I can tell you in my opinion they sound MUCH warmer and fuller in sound. If you’re lucky good sets are still around but the display units can go weird, I need to service mine at some point.

    Best or luck 🙂

    Thanks for the posts! Martin never claimed his kit covers the MK1 displays, I’m not sure why he doesn’t have a kit for those.

    But that’s really good photos to see! I’ve got a MK3 screen here I’m going to do a quick vid on probably, so then we have videos of MK2 and MK3 and your photos of MK1!

    It’s surprising how different those MK1 displays are in technology. I’d love to see more pictures of the overlay piece that sits in front of the segment displays.

    If you can get in there, could you take a snap of the big IC chip, I’d love to know if that chip remains the same across all 3 which I ‘think’ it does.

    Damn it didn’t post my message.

     

    ‘lightitup’ thanks for recommending my video – it means a lot to think others are getting value from it.

    I saw this thread and couldn’t resist jumping in with a display recap video to help out.

    Thanks,

    I don’t even have a Beolink 5000 yet and I’d still buy one of these kits!

    Outstanding job! I followed this in the old forum and am genuinely very very impressed with what you have achieved.

    tentative question, what would it take to do something like this for the Beo4 – new screens are now down to NOS (New Old Stock) and will one day run out, I think the Beo4 is a corner stone of the B&O handheld controller line up and it would be a shame to not be able to fit new screens to broken models. You could perhaps even use more of the screen real estate with the source wording, add some B&O style icons for the inputs perhaps?

    Either way, thanks again for this amazing contribution to the community
