  • Re: Some fun with hacking and integration

    in a nutshell for the radio control it is a statelss switch, which goes on and then off again and it send a request to selected BO Gear with a programmed command of a choice. I have been engineering in my spare time home automation system that includes some BO bits. For homekit, easiest thing to start is to start with say RPi and homebridge and then add plug-ins as they fit

    UI proto. DLNA/Radio will be having similar design. Thinking about making selection process easy and intuitive without much clutter. Later will add ability to populate to multiple sources. And just for kicks can do EQ bars for real, running second stream and applying FFT to it to get dynamic frequency spectrum. Below Image is an animated gif, click to see more. BTW it is fully reactive, controls the product and reflects immideate changes made by the product or remote.

    Some other hacks include 1. Remote controls to change Setup Switch input sensitivity level settings on BeoLab 2 without touching the unti itself, with the help of additional tiny microcontroller that I added inside. It also supports source filtering, to enable extra ooopms only for TV source. 2. Thorough integration of BO gear with HomeKit. HomeKit standard app has very little to none controls avaialble for audio/video devices, while it is possible to turn on/off devices. I needed more control. So

  • Some fun with hacking and integration

    I had some spare time recently and spent it playing with my BO gear. I reversed engineered TuneIN protocol and fetched all the data, as a result I don't need anymore TuneIN as I replicated it with a nicer interface and in-house control panel to control the radio and soon DLNA too. Attached video is a fun part integration, I love planes hence scan the sky around my house, whenever A380 is flying over it stops the playback triggers an announcement on the selected BO gear and resumes previous playback

  • Re: What is the best sound you have heard?

    Topic starter, dude, if you hate/don’t like BO products or just want to vent off, you are in wrong place, we are here to appreciate all design and technical aspects of the legendary brand Let me give a very small advice: spreading negativism isn’t productive at all, follow the Beatles line: And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.

    Technology is overrated, innovation via making new colours and trade-in campaigns. Interesting approach.

  • Re: Android not under warranty

    This is totally unacceptable I suggest you do the following: 1. Verify that Warranty agreement doesn't explicitly specify Apple-only, or no-Andoroid support and take screenshots 2. Verify that Web-site tech specs don't explicitly specify Apple-only, or no-Andoroid support and take screenshots if at this stage you are 100% certain that you have been mistreated, then proceed to next step: 3. Make a copy of email responses from BO support with timestamps 4. Make a public post on FaceBook/Twitter

  • Re: Nest Cam

    You can pull the images from Nest Cameras and store them locally, but not the live feed. That requires you to create Nest developer account to obtain credentials for external script running say on your home server. But ideally you want to have 30 days recording and that is only available with pricey subscription, particularly if you have several cameras. On a positive side Cloud processing allows smart objects/face recognition if you aren't bothered with your live feed stored on Google servers

    please refrain from using wireless wifi extenders. PowerLine extenders are now capable of delivering speeds up to 1.2Gb/s.

  • Re: Multiroom Issues

    David, from my personal experience BeoSound 1/2 wireless speakers are very sensitive to the quality of WiFi network. More over they don't buffer enough in case of a temporary collision on wifi spectrum. They work on 2.4GHz which is highly polluted by home appliances including microwaves. Plus most consumer routers may not have MIMO multiple receivers and transmitters to handle wireless streams independently increasing overall throughput. Other issue with BO Multilink technology is that it is
