      The so called “Special Remote” is not so special it just adds a REG1 & REG2 command as you will see in the attachment.

        Alternatively, the IR codes of this region free command can be incorporated in the Beo5/6 remotes.

        I have attached a ZIP file containing the XML file I built many years ago, which you can add to a Beo5/6 remote with the commands used in the instructions already supplied.

              On all MCL products the datalink is on the 3rd pin of the speaker socket.

                One thing which is not mentioned is if it will affect the member status/payment? The reason for asking is that my membership renewal is coming up, and I would like to know if there should be any reason for not paying before the transfer to the new ownership?

                Whilst I cannot speak for the new owners and their future plans, initially anyway everything will remain the same. HOWEVER payment is taken by debit/credit cards and as part of our agreement I will be cancelling our agreement with our credit card processor (Global Payments). When it is cancelled a message will be added to the web site asking members to pause renewal payment until the new owners payment system is in place.

                  I am pleased to announce that last Thursday, Lee and I signed a sale agreement whereby Beoworld is to be handed over as a going concern, meaning the new owners (Multicare Electronics Ltd) will continue the sites as they are today, initially anyway.

                  The sale will include everything that exists today on-line plus thousands of hard copy manuals, brochures and B&O technical/repair documents.

                  Under the agreement the transfer will take place over a period of up to 8 weeks starting last Thursday 15th February 2024. The first steps are for the new owners to setup their servers. The live forum runs on Linux, but everything else runs on Windows servers which also require SQL servers to be installed.

                  It is intended that during the transfer period the web site and forums will continue as normal, except for a period when the Domains (Beoworld.org) is transferred from our registrar account to theirs. Advanced notice will be given of the timing (Date & Time) of the Domain transfers and typically it could be up to eight (8) hours for the transfer to be completed assuming no issues are encountered.

                  After the transfer, everyone’s accounts will remain the same as today because all the databases will have been transferred as part of the process.

                  For me, this is a emotional period, given the years I have worked keeping Beoworld going, but I have accepted that it is time to pass the baton to others..

                  I would like thank everyone who has supported Beoworld over the years including you, our members as well as moderators past and present. I will be emailing all Gold and Silver members with details of the sale agreement. We still have 35 “Founder” members who are still paid up Gold members for which I want to offer a special thank you.

                  Regards

                  Keith..

                    The BC6-23 can be an audio master if required, but by default it is not.

                    When an FM or DAB radio is fitted to a BC6-23 which it was if purchased in the UK, then if you press “Radio” on the remote it would play using the audio master via the masterlink. If you wanted to play the radio fitted in the BC6-23, then you use “LINK” found in the “LIST” followed by “Radio”

                    There are several variations of the BC6-23 depending on type number/country or MArk 1 or 2

                    BC6-23

                      It should be noted that there are several versions of the BeoVision 1 which have the letters “L” or “LS” after BeoVision 1.

                      Note all versions had the “Remote” in the service menu, but I think the BeoCentre 1 did have the full remote. If there was “Remote” in the Service Menu then it looks like the following:-

                      sm2

                        There is no procedure to “pair” the remote because it is a standard IR remote.

                        The remote can ONLY be used with the Beovision 1 or the Beocentre 1

                            I should also point out that the type 1636 (EU) replaced the 1611.

                            In fact, all type 161x converters were replaced with 163x units when one was purchased. In other words if a 1611 (EU) converter failed, it must be replaced by a 1636 (EU)

                              This afternoon I have spent some time searching my boxes of manuals related to all the B&O converters. I have found a circuit diagram for type 1636 which is attached.

                                  As with every product the difficulty lies mostly one the financial risk. Nowadays the usual go-to-market duties besides the development itself can leave a huge hole in your pockets. Especially when sold internationally it can easily screw up your whole product pricing if you are not selling it in large numbers. Not even to mention customer support and marketing.

                                  I agree with your point here that is why most small product developers appoint a distributor, then you are only dealing with your distributor, not hundreds of end users.

                                  In my view your “Private Project” has great commercial potential.

                                    Oh by the way, is Canada the same spec as the US?

                                    YES.. Both Canada and the US have the same phone system.

                                      The Beocom 1 is the US only version of the Beocom 6000. It has different software loaded on it and has some different functionality such as having two phone line connections.

                                      Not sure what you mean by your statement “now that I am using Wi-Fi in my apartment” in relation to your question?

                                        The sticker images in each posting you made look the same to me…

                                        The type 8870 must I assume be a later version..
