    Great news – I am still a bit confused about the TV’s SW version (your screenshots didn’t seem right for a Beo4 model) but good news that you got it working!!

    Would that help you?

    A copy of the Tuning page would be very useful thanks, especially if it explains how to turn Dec Off to Dec On. I assume that it says to use the TURN button?? I just realised that the early BL1000s (pre-LIGHT button) had a stand alone TURN button so there was no need to use SHIFT PICTURE or SHIFT SOUND.

    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 slightly 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.

    A similar problem with the decoder setting was discussed here: https://archivedforum.beoworld.org/forums/p/25201/338352.aspx#338352

    On the Beolink 1000, the key sequence SHIFT PICTURE or SHIFT SOUND is the same as pressing TURN on the Beo4 remote.  TURN can be added to the LIST function but is only then available after pressing V.TAPE or V.MEM.  (Cover the end of the remote if you don’t want V.TAPE or V.MEM to be transmitted to the TV)

    I think you have an older version of the TV that was actually introduced when the default remote was a Beolink1000 (without a screen).  I am guessing a bit here but give this a go:

    Firstly I think that you need to add TURN and STORE to the LIST function of the Beo4 remote (using the ADD function of the remote menu I describe earlier).

    Then turn the TV on by pressing TV.

    Press GO (the cue TUNE appears on the screen).

    Use the number pad to key in 0 7 5 (or any random frequency)

    Use the Beo4’s LIST button to select TURN, and then press GO several times until ‘dec on’ is shown on the tune screen of the TV.

    Use the LIST button to select STORE, and press GO.

    Press the number 1 – to store the TV preset as 1.

    Use the LIST button to select STORE and press GO again.

    You should be able to get to the tuning menu by using Menu button (on remote) then choose Setup (on TV screen) then choose Tuning (on TV screen).  Then you should be able to use the remote arrow to move to the right and change Dec to On.

    I would hazard a guess at Samsung, but your best bet is to take the TV apart and look for a label!

    I contacted an eBay seller recently to point out an error in his listing. He had stated that a BV10-32 stand would fit ‘many other TVs’. In a friendly manner I pointed out that this was not the case. I did this mainly to protect potential B&O buyers and avoid their disappointment.

    Anyway, he became firstly very defensive, and then aggressive and rude in his responses to my messages. He also stated stated that he was a ‘dealer’ (although not listed as such on eBay). I reported him to eBay for both being rude and being a ‘dealer posing as a private seller’. I am not sure what action eBay took (they don’t let you know) but his listings disappeared and re-appeared a few days later under a different username! Buyer beware!

    You should report him then.

    Agreed.

    However, if you had previously uploaded the photo to eBay (e.g. to sell the TV) then other users can use your photo in their own listings.

    A further thought: If your VIRGIN internet modem/router has built in DECT*, then you may be able to connect Beocom 6000s straight to it cordlessly without using the B&O PSTN. I have used Beocom 6000s like this in the past (with a German router) – there will be reduced functionality but calls in/out should work fine.

    * I just opened a webchat with Virgin to see if any of their hubs had built in DECT – unfortunately I very much doubt that the virgin ‘assistant’ understood my question! I would take his answer with a pinch of salt, but he did say: ‘Our Hub 3 and Hub 4 has a built in DECT, alright?’

    Personally I would have a look in the router’s menu and see if there are any landline/DECT connection options.

    HI and welcome to Beoworld!

    I do have BC6000s but am still on a traditional analogue connection via PlusNet, hence no experience of VOIP – yet!

    However, assuming that the cable between the phone (little 3-way junction box) and the router is an RJ11 to RJ11, have you experimented with an RJ11 ‘crossover’ cable rather than a ‘straight through’ connection? (or vice versa if you are already using a crossover.) This has fixed a similar problem for me in the past.

    It’s worth a try. And I think we are going to get more and more of these questions in the future as UK goes digital!

    Your alternative is to choose a different VOIP provider, use a stand-alone analogue-to-VOIP adaptor and just use Virgin as the broadband ‘bearer’ – the third party adaptor would simply connect to one of your router’s RJ45 sockets.

    However, it does not remember the order you add the LIST functions. If I add V. TAPE 2 first and then SPEAKERS, SPEAKERS come up before V. TAPE 2 anyway.

    When you add a new function it moves it to the start of the LIST by default. Hence you should add functions in the reverse order that you wish them to appear, if that makes sense.

    In the meantime it could still be worth trying that ‘decoder’ trick that I mentioned in my last paragraph.

    Good morning and welcome to Beoworld!

    If it has a LIST button then it is almost certainly a Beo4.  I don’t think that early versions (pre SW 4.4) had the MOVE function.  But if it does, here’s how to use it:

    move

    If it doesn’t have the MOVE function, then you could delete all the functions from LIST and then re-add them in the order you require.

    If the remote is a ‘hotel’ version then it may have restricted functionality and not offer many of the functions that you mention.  These usually have a slightly different button layout and a separate MUTE button.

    If you are not using the TV function, there is a way to use the TV button to select the AV2 SCART input – basically by going to the TV’s SETUP then SOCKETS menu and choosing ‘Decoder’ as the  AV2 input.  Then go to the TUNING menu, choose TV channel 1 and change the Decoder setting to ‘On’.  Pressing TV will then choose the AV2 input.

    Hi and welcome to Beoworld!

    There will be an internal lithium battery on PCB4 that supplies the microprocessor when the mains power is removed.  This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron.

    According to the manual, the handset symbol means that the line is busy.  Alternatively, if you look in the problem solving section:

    bt

    Does the phone line work OK with just a phone connected? Conversely, does the Beotalk work if you disconnect the phone handset?

    Could there be a fault on the line? Has your provider changed something (eg gone fully digital)? Are you in UK?

    Also have you changed anything with the wiring between Beotalk, Power supply and phone line? It’s worth double checking that the little three way connecter has the correct cables in the three sockets. Remove and fully re-insert (listen for the click) each cable in turn. Maybe try different cables if you have them.

    You could also try the setup in a different property if you suspect a line fault.

    A search of the old forum brings up this thread: https://archivedforum2.beoworld.org/forums/p/1769/15003.aspx#15003

    … which mentions a factory reset of + 01234 +

    Could be worth a try?

    Is the view of this picture, the male connector from the backside (soldering side)?

    It’s female connector from solder side, or male connector from pin side.

    I usually scan Peter Pan’s diagrams to check: http://www.hifi4all.dk/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=32157&PN=1

    The last post in that thread mentions B&O part number 8006039

    Maybe give AVA Services a call and see if it is still available: https://www.avaservices.co.uk/

    The that old saying telling A Beolab 3500 can be used standalone with a 1611 converter only is wrong?

    Although there was some debate about it in the past – the final outcome in this thread suggests that PC2 will work as audiomaster: https://archivedforum.beoworld.org/forums/p/26423/207666.aspx

    (EDIT: But according to the linked thread, it will only work if the Beoport/PC2 is connected to a PC, not a Mac)

    No, that one is forbidden until I find one of those little remote too. Unable to find one for 2 or three year when you gave me the idea and still controlling volume from the outside with a “No-com” 6000! I’m jealous and will report to moderation this post 😉

    🤣😂🤣
