  • Re: New TVs - (PUC) Bluetooth control possible?

    yes i believe so.....i'm having that set up for me next Tuesday, as my 14-55 is arriving, and connected (via a matrix) to all my sources in my lounge, some of which use BT remotes...... requires a IR/bluetooth switch....dont know what they look like, but apparently very small...my dealer has it set up this way, and thats what he's doing for me...works perfectly, i had a play with his Beovision One Remote (not BT) controlling his Amazon Fire TV.......and the Beovision One BT will work exactly

    On the very same subject, the linked article is well worth reading.......more of less exactly the problem we have been discussing! literally just popped up in my inbox as i wrote my previous msg.......(many) SONY Bravia's losing access to Youtube..... https://9to5mac.com/2016/09/02/apple-television-set-opinion/?pushup=1 the most salient paragraph is this " This is the problem with the single-box approach to smart TVs: when you combine an extremely expensive display panel with built-in smarts

    i'm with you more or less.....its a clumsy outcome between B&O and Netflix, but there is the simplest of workarounds - an Amazon Fire costs very little, and it fits in the back of the 14.....so no big deal at the end of the day practically.....just a poor read across PR / strategy wise for both companies..... at the end of the day, external boxes will always be required for most, the TV manufacturers simply dont build the OS's that are future proof.....they're not good at it, its

    Not sure if it is that simple at all - content rights are unbelievably complicated, and divided up geographically, so its not within Netflix control to offer a universal set of content...... in the UK for example, Sky have exclusive rights to a lot of HBO material - thats why there is little or no HBO material on Netflix UK - whereas in the US, HBO has its own cable channel, app, and they give Netflix US the content........similar problems exist everywhere..... lets assume Netflix wanted everyone

    the odd thing with all of this is that, having not put a huge amount of effort in their own smart TV environment, B&O surely opted for Android TV to have a more credible environment, one which is expandable as the selection of apps and services grows over time, and lower maintenance in the long run for B&O...........from what i understand ( posted earlier about this) it is Netflix that has pulled the app....the email traffic my dealer saw suggests B&O senior management are very unhappy

    would like to think this sort of thing wont happen once the B&O/LG panels come out, but not filled with confidence..... guess its just a reminder of (a) how 4K has yet to settle down with respect to standards of distribution (AV1 for ex) and (b) what a mess TV the streaming landscape is (no one universal platform agnostic subscription etc)..........regardless of blame, panels from other brands will not be completely be immune from all this..... and to think, people deride Apple for its protective

    believe so yes.......the Amazon Fire TV 1st gen is certainly controllable with the Beoremote One, though it requires a BT/IR little switch ......the 2nd gen will work i am told as well....whether that requires the same little switch or not, i dont know......but i'm pretty confident it will all work.....

    Ok, think i have some insight into this....i'm in the middle of my BV14 install, so have been speaking to my dealer.... long story short, Netflix have thrown their toys out of the pram, and blocked the app from the B&O TVs running Android TV......why? the salesman i spoke to, who is very experienced and knowledgeable, and who was at some B&O/Audi events yesterday, said that the dealer network was given notice last week from B&O that the app would be blocked, largely because Neflix

    Is that true? My BV14 arrives next Tuesday, but having cabling prep work done tomorrow....guess i'll need to shove an Amazon Fire TV in the back of BV14......seems very weird removing Netflix.....when i played with a BV14 last week, Netflix was there in the Android TV environment.....oh well longer term, if Netflix switch to AV1 codecs, will the BV14 (or any 4K tv with similar specs) not be able to play Netflix in 4k ever? i know their 4K content is extremely limited, but still.....

  • Re: Closing of B&O shops - reasons

    yeah, difficult to know how they're perceived, beyond just being very expensive and very stylish.......i'm hopeful up to a point, as Apple et al have shown that there is a market for tech to be stylish.....they might need to mindful that the price of achieving that style, and yes ease of connectivity, doesn't get out of hand, then they have a future....and i dont see the mainstream TV manufacturers at least getting anywhere near B&O's design standards........when i was in Selfridges
