  • Re: Using Ikea smart lights with BLGW

    Yesterday I went to Ikea to pick up the gateway and a couple of remotes and transformers because it was the last day they were on sale, yay! They were easy enough to pair and set up in the app (as long as you have physical access to the boxes...). Basically they work well, but the system has some idiosyncracies and design brain farts. The remotes are paired directly with the lamps/transformers and not via the gateway. This is sensible in a way because they will still work if the gateway goes down

    Ahh, thanks. Ikea gateway it is then as the price is ridiculously low anyway. My ultimate goal is to write my own software interfacing and at least they promise to open it up someday.

    Yeah, I have light strips under the cabinets and spotlights on the top, on two separate transformers and that is enough segmentation for me. I don't actually have any Hue devices nor a BLGW - now I'm trying to decide whether to get the Hue gateway, or trust Ikea to build similar functionality to their own gateway later on.

    Great tip! A year or so ago I renewed my kitchen lighting with Ikea low voltage LED fixtures. I have never been happy with their simplistic proprietary remote control. Looks like I only need to replace the LED drivers to upgrade to this newer smart system.

    [quote user="StUrrock"] On a funny note we had a Beolit 12 once stolen from our store years ago, 2 or 3 days later there was a scruffy looking bag left at the back door of the shop. When opened it had the missing Beolit 12 in it. Whether the person(s) involved had a pang of guilt, where scared of being caught in possession or just couldn't connect it to their WiFi, we will never know.......

    Just match the capacitance and voltage and you’ll be fine. If you cannot find the exact voltage rating, replace with the next higher value (10V -> 16V and so on). The T and M are probably tolerance ranges, you can ignore them in these applications.

    [quote user="BeoMedia"] Question : It seems to me that most caps on these systems are ripe for replacement. How should an amateur go about this? Shall I try to replace all caps that measure out of spec or only take one step at the time (for me it would probably be replace the caps on the power circuit board, then later move on to the caps Mika mentioned on the radio board).[/quote] Do the mandatory caps first - these are the small electrolytics in the power supply and the CPU board (maybe

  • Re: Beovision MX7000 factory reset?

    Many TVs (including these) have a problem with the image shifting horizontally when you feed them an RGB signal. If you correct that in service settings, you will have a similar (but opposite direction) shift in composite mode. There may not be enough range in the settings to correct this completely. Not a bug but a feature. A ”factory reset” - if there is one, I don’t know - isn’t going to help, and replacing the cable won’t do anything either. The problem/feature may
