  • Re: Beovision 8-32 DVB

    No problem - I used mine as a master at one point you can send DVD or Video via the RF out but for an HDMI source, in my case apple TV, i used an HDMI Splitter to have one goto the HDMI socket and the second to a HDMI>Scart converter and from there to one of the SCART sockets - you then assign the scart socket to V.Aux (STB) and use HDMI - this then sends the output from the scart socket to your link TV and I can control the Apple TV from another room - picture quality is not the same obviously

  • Re: My first B&O brochure

    Mine was the 1978/79 one when I was still at school - a red cover with the Beomaster 4400 and Beogram 4002 in it which I drooled over. I could only afford the Beogram 1500 at the time when I started work, I remember being annoyed that they change the tonearm and cartridges a year or so later. After that went onto buy a Beosystem 5000 which then changed a couple of years later to the 5500 with the Beolink 1000 remote. Same with the Beovision 7002, got one for my 21st Birthday and then the Beovisions

    There should be a card installed that contains an ML Socket, Scart socket and 2 RF connections. One if for Aerial in and the second RF out. If there is only 1 RF Connection to the far right then that's for analogue TV. If the card is installed you press SAT or DTV and you should be able to get to the menu from there to set it up.

  • Re: New Website.....

    Yes, I would rather buy something in tip top condition than grab a bargain and spend a fortune getting it repaired. I believe there was a marketing slogan at one point by B&O which was along the lines of, for people who put quality above price. Sadly these days people don't do that preferring price over quality. You know when to steer clear when someone says "we didn't have any tapes, speakers, records or cables to fully test but the lights come on and things spin"

  • Re: New Website.....

    Yes, good luck with it Lee - one thing I miss about LifestyleAV was the honesty in marketing products, particularly TVs - Lifestyle used to put the number of days used on all the adverts - since Lifestyle went you hardly see that anymore. I bought a few peices from Lifestyle and when they arrived, they were so well packed and in such good condition that you felt like you were buying something new. They are still in use, amongst them BL2000, BL3500 and BL6000's Wish you all the best with this

  • Re: Beoworld Fun

    Agree with everything said so far, the fun element seems to have gone - I used to check the forum regularly for updates but have been doing so less and less recently as there's not much to interest me. PaulW's posts used to really wind me up but they were fun, mainly because he made such an idiot of himself. I suspect he is in a coffee bar somewhere with his Macbook pro and racing bike leaning against the window whilst he is reading this, that or planning a save the planet surfing trip I

  • Re: Store closure in Colchester

    I was there a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday and was surprised to see it closed, I thought I'd try again in a couple of weeks. I wanted to see a Beovision Horizon in the flesh so that I could persuade myself and significant other that it was worth the cost - and that it would fit in the cabinet. Having said I won't buy brand new B&O the beovirus and impending doom of the BV8 is making me eat my words! Hopefully they will be back soon.

  • Re: POLL : Buying New or Buying Used?

    I used to buy new when it was affordable, now I buy used as you can get some great refurbished stuff and don't have to bother with controlling it all with an iPhone and no software issues. Recently I have bought new valve equipment rather than B&O, mainly because I love the sound and look of it. Still love B&O classic equipment but buying new competes with other hobbies like Sailing and Amateur Radio. I doubt I would change my M100-2s though as they sound superb through the new system

  • Re: Simple Light control with Beo4 in 2019…

    I thought Boscom made one?, I have two of theirs and they are great. The other option is a Lintronic box which means you can use it with any make and pretty much future proof. I have a couple of these, the oldest one must be 10 or 12 years old and still going strong, that one controls a Yaqin Valve system, Fireplace and Lights. If I bought another TV I would most likely buy another Lintronic Box so that I could keep using my Beo4. The beauty of the lintronic solution is that you can program it to

  • Re: De-cluttering our B&O: Does it spark joy?

    I have the same problem with Telephones, I love vintage GPO phones and have bought them, sold them, missed them and bought them back again. Now I have one in the hall and change it for one in my collection when I get bored or fancy a change. They still receive and make calls with excellent quality but don't have buttons and the new repro ones are poor quality in comparison. Besides which hardly anyone calls on a landline anymore but when they do it's a pleasure answering the phone. It's
