    The usual mute relay symptom is that the output cuts in and out according to the load. It is caused by oxidation of the contacts rather than a purely mechanical relay problem.

    Are you sure that it’s from the Beocenter and not another project?  I don’t recognise it from having dismantled mine (but I have the earlier single-belt tape deck) and I can’t see anything similar in the Service Manual’s limited exploded parts diagram.

    Have you checked the mute relay?  This is usually the culprit when the speaker 2 outputs are working fine.

    Some BV10-32 stand information (in English, sorry!)

    As far as I know there are two ‘official’ B&O stands for the BV10-32.  I have owned both.

    The Type 4707 is the motorised floor stand.  The top of the TV will be at 96cm from the floor, like this:

    This is the stand without the TV mounted:

    BV10-32 floor stand

    The other is the Type 4710 which is the motorised table stand.  I used one of these on the floor initially for my BV10-32, but found it to be too low (about 20cm lower than the floor stand, from memory).  Here is the one I had, but sold:

    IMG_5548

    I think that STB brackets sell fixed (non-motorised) stands but they are very expensive new and rare second-hand.

    I recommend the type 4707 floor stand.  I have used additional brackets to attach an Apple TV to mine behind the BV10-32.

    Great result – thanks for letting us know and fingers crossed that the system behaves from now on!😀

    There’s no volume control on the pre-amp output, so you’ll need to find another solution. (EDIT:  Actually there is volume control of pre-amp – I was thinking of line- out!  Hence this should be useable for Beolabs))

    Have a read of the second part of Steve’s response here: https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/topic/beomaster-3000-naar-powerlink/#post-5835

    You could use the speaker 2 sockets (via attenuator) for the Beolabs.  Be aware that the BeoCenter’s ‘Mute’ control would only work for the speaker 1 pair in such a setup, and does not mute the ‘pre-amp’ output.

    I am sure that Steve will be along in a minute to confirm the correct cables!

    Looking forward plenty of “unboxing” vids!

    Some of the stuff has been in boxes for 12 years (and 6 house moves!), so it will indeed be exciting to find out what’s there.  When UK house prices plummet ‘🤞’ and I can afford to buy my ‘forever house’, I look forward to getting everything out and working out where to put it. 😀

    Boot up time on my BV10-32 for RADIO (from BS9000 over ML – BS9000 A.OPT 0 in mainroom and BV10-32 in V.OPT 6 in linkroom) is 7 seconds. Boot up time BV10-32 for direct TV (with an old PUC connected HD Dreambox, Sat receiver) is 17 seconds. Boot up time on my BV7-40 with built in Beo HD Satreceiver is 38 sec. – with Dreambox on the same BV 17 sec. Hope this helps Stefan

    Thanks for that stefan – very useful to know! 7 seconds is not too bad at all.

    However, I decided to go an alternative route and got hold of a BeoSound 1 (with FM radio and CD) to solve my ‘instant’ radio requirement. It’s more than adequate for the current living room.

    Prior to getting the BeoSound I was going to do some experimenting with ML cable, a BeoLink1611 and my BeoCenter 2300, but my B&O collection is currently in these boxes which aren’t labelled too well. I suspect the 1611 converter is in the box in the far corner! Far easier to buy something new!

    PS: Since that photo was taken there are more (non-B&O) boxes on top and alongside!

    Can’t compete with matador for stunning scenery and location, but I just got hold of this to solve my lack of FM radio in the living room:

    And added the ubiquitous AE to bring it into the 20th century 😀

    As MM said above. But the MCL2A does indeed get power from the Audiomaster over the MCL cable. Pin 2 (pink) provides 7.5 to 8.5 V.  This is also the extra pin in the left hand speaker connection at the audiomaster.

    Main Web Site, then Products, then you will see User & Service Manuals at the bottom.

    Thanks Keith – that’s very useful to know. I think that I’ll look for another solution, perhaps add a Beosound 1 (original version) to my collection!

    I use 2 x digital boxes, 1 for terrestrial french tv and the other for satellite english freesat tv, both these do not have anything programmed.

    My UK Freesat box (Humax) used to ‘wake up’ at 0300hrs for SW updates (channel changes etc). I am not sure how you have it connected (hdmi or SCART), and anyway B&O don’t use hdmi CEC, but I suppose there is a small chance this could be related.

    Otherwise I agree with MM that the Beo4 could well be the culprit. I had one that behaved in a similar manner – working normally and then changing channels some hours later! I tried cleaning it but eventually had to replace the contact foil.

    But would that contol the tv?

    Almost certainly yes – but I am not totally sure that it would turn the screen on – this may depend upon your option settings – are they in the same room?

    Another possibility: If the TV has the DVB module fitted, and a recording device is connected (eg HDR), then a timer could have been set via the DVB’s Electronic Programme Guide.

    Have you checked the timer settings in the BC2?

    In my experience a faulty RF chip just gives a ‘no signal’ message

    Yes they can be temperamental – sometimes you just have to keep trying!

    Maybe in the menu of your internet box you can disable the DECT? Perhaps there is interference between that and the PSTN?
