        BV12 question answered in your other post.

        Your BeoSound 3000 and BeoSound 4 are MasterLink (ML) but your BeoSystem 4 is not. It is NetLink (NL). To connect ML to your BeoSystem 4  you need a Beolink Conveter NL/ML. These are fairly expensive but could be a good “investment” for full integration if that is the way you are thinkingof going. All my system is the older ML so I can’t really help with NL.

        So my suggestion above using “option 5” is an experiment as I don’t have anything to try it with.

        Do you have a Beo4 remote? You can use that to set the option easier than the Beo5.

          Once again, sorry my reply is in English.

          Normally I would suggest you upgrade your membership to access the manuals on here but there doesn’t seem to be anything for your BS4/BV12.

          I couldn’t find anything for you BV12 on B&O site either. There is a manual here that talks about the message you are getting.

            I am not sure what to suggest but I saw this when looking at waht options to set each.

            Option 5: Where the product responds to its own codes:

            Video – ‘TV’, ‘Sat’, ‘Text’, ‘VCR’, DVD’ etc

            Audio – ‘Radio’, ‘CD’, ‘Phono’ etc

            You might want to try that!

                Hello Mike,

                I think I have sent you down the wrong way. I forgot BS4 does not have MasterLink so cannot be connected easily.

                I will need to think again.

                  This link might help with the PowerLink cables.

                  Powerlink Cable

                  I’m not sure what the issue is with the CD, but I have a suspicion that it is to do with the fact that the two items are not connected via Master link.

                  I am not sure how to stop that. You could make the BS3000 only respond to Link commands. You will do that via the Option Settings.

                    Hello Michael,

                    Your first problem is that because you have not connected the BS4 and BS3000, you cannot put them in the same zone. It forces you to have 2 zones.

                    I don’t believe you need to add BV12 because when I try to add it with the BS4 already there, it says “Replace?’.

                    Your Beo5 connections is a bit more complicated. Beo5 cannot connect to 64bit Windows. Your Windows 10 is likely to to be 64bit. It can be done with a Virtual Machine (VM). I use Virtualbox with WindowsXP 32bit.

                      Hi, Stoobie. I defininitely don’t have the complete setup – unfortunately. I would have thought setting the sound to – MONO – would have used only the integrated centre speaker though?

                      I’m sorry, I should have been clearer, I wondered if the sound controls are handled by the missing Master Control Panel AV9000.

                      However spec on Beoworld shows :-

                      Daily operation recommended: Beo4
                      Sound processing: Dolby Surround Sound, Pro-logic decoder Sound modes (sound 1-5) Mono (Centre speaker) It will auto-detect if speakers are added.

                      So maybe Mono will work and there is another issue.

                        I apologise that I do not reply in German.

                        Can you let us know how the components are connected to each other? Are they connected via Masterlink between the Beosystem 4 and Beosound 3000?

                        It is important to remember that zones are not rooms on the Beo5. You can have living room zone 1 and living room zone 2.

                        I have had a quick look at CT 6.84 and I think you need to add either BV12-65 or Beosystem 4 (I don’t think you need both). If I add one or the other I can then get BS3000 in the same zone. But if you add BV12 and BS4 it thinks to have 2 “tv’s” in the same room.

                        I would add the BS4 and BS3000 and see how the remote works.

                        If the BS4 and BS 3000 are in the same room and are connected via Masterlink, it is unusual to have speakers connected to the BS4 and BS 3000.

                            Hi Gregg,

                            There are two ways you can do this – you can put the Beo6 into “dealer mode” which reduces all IR output by quite a lot. You have to be up close to the IR receiver to control anything (you can imagine how this works in a showroom with loads of products in proximity). Or you can use the Config Tool change it for individual Zones/Products/Buttons.

                            To change the Beo6 to “dealer mode” :-

                            Go ito the Settings menu by pressing the red dot button and GO (center button) together. You should be on the SETUP screen, call up the numbers page by pressing + on the bottom of the screen. Then press “00 GO” (center button). You will see Dealer Option on screen. Press that, you will see Normal Mode and Dealer Mode, press Dealer Mode and it should go red. Then press Back (hard button) until you are out of all the menus. This may reduce it too much for your needs, but it is worth trying before you delve into the config tool.

                            To change it in the Config Tool, load your configuration and go to the Edit tab along the top. If you want to change the IR strength for the whole Zone right click the Zone, click the IR tab, you will see Custom IR Strength on the right, check the box and choose your strength. If you want to change it for a product, click on the zone to bring up the products in the zone and right click on the product. It is the same for individual buttons, click on the product to bring up the buttons for the product. You can do it for the hard buttons too.

                            Good luck

                              First of all you need to make sure there are no “products” in the zone you want to remove, then go to the zones tab, right click on the the zone you want to to delete and the option to delete should be in that list.

                                I suppose you need to think about how much the Beo6 will assist you day to day.

                                You could consider a cheap/used 802.11 b or g access point/router to integrate into your system.

                                I currently  have a router downstairs and one upstairs (running as an access point) to assit with WiFi coverage. I don’t know if running old standards alongside new affects reception or speeds,,

                                    I’m not sure if it will help with your particular problem but, looking at your settings above,  I think you need to set the setup to Option 2 because if you only have the BS5 and speakers ther will be only 1 IR reciever.

                                    To set the option on the BS5 once you have set it on the Be06, you put the BS5 in standby, press the Red dot and center button on the Beo6,  you will see “Option Pgm” in the list. press that and then press the button that comes up. (Beosound 5 on your screen??). That should set the option.

                                    Onfortunately I don’t know enough about the BS5 to help with connection issues

                                      I hope you have had some luck with your setup. I wasn’t sure if you has spotted the tick boxes for the BS5 to set up the N.MUSIC, N.RADIO and Spotify.

                                      1. Click on the BS5 in the Config Tool – it will show a Sources drop down

                                      01

                                      2. Go there to set the source.

                                      02

                                      I hope that helps.

                                      The Beo6 is capable of macros. If there are things on the BS5 that take a few button presses, they can be combined into 1 button. I don’t know enough about the BS5 to know it that is an issue.

                                      I have mine switch the TV to BBC1 before turning off so it always starts on that channel no matter what channel I was watching when I turned off.

                                      You could also program it to control your non B&O TV if it uses an IR remote. If you are interested in that I can possibly help

                                        The Beo5 would  need to be programmed to add the Beolab 3500 if it doesn’t have it already.

                                        Is the Beo5 used to control anything else at the moment? Do you have a B&O setup or just the BL3500

                                        Do any of the screens on your Beo5 have the menu button already? If it does you can try pushing the MENU button, then the + button on the bottom of the screen, this brings up the numbers, press 0 4 then the middle button on the keypad. (GO button)

                                        If you programme the Beo5 yourself you can make that a macro so you press on one button and it does it all for you.

                                          That may help you if you are considering updating the Beo6 yourself.

                                            Thank you for clarifying.

                                            Looking at your installation, I would guess that the Beo6 was not programmed with all of your items in mind. I would guess items have been added since the Beo6 was new. Did your dealer uodate it when new items were added?

                                            I don’t know enough about newer ML/NL systems to understand what is causing the issue.

                                            When the Beo6 was programmed it would have been told what was in each room, how it was connected and what option each was set at and if you add or swap items it won’t always work as expected.

                                            You could try to update the Beo6 yourself using the configuration tool, but that will wipe what is on it. You cannot download the current configuration and save it unfortunately (programming only goes one way). Also, if it is working the Beosound 5 with WiFi you may struggle to get it working if you re-programme it.

                                            Having said that, you may be able to programme it so that it works exactly as you want. I will take a look in the config tool for you to see if all your hardware is listed. That way you will know if it is possible to try your own setup.
