  • Home automation via Beo4 and BeoRemote One

    B&O remotes control TV, Receiver, PS4 & Fire TV Cube all via Raspberry PI with an Arduino to decode B&O IR signals from puck. Arduino Mini is embedded in the back of the puck with some blue tape for electrical insulation purposes.

  • RaspberryPI with B&O eye

    Custom solution to home control by embedding an arduino Nano in the back of a B&O eye, and then providing a USB/Serial connection with translated remote codes.

  • Re: Using a raspberry Pi as a DIY equivalent to Logitech Harmony

    As an update to anyone who was interested, I now have this working, and it was surprisingly simple. The net result is I have: An Raspberry PI running Linux with OpenHab2 as the main controller. It is connected to my receiver via HDMI, to control the other devices It controls a Vizio TV, Sony PS4 and Fire TV Cube via HDMI-CEC commands It controls the receiver via IP with an existing binding for openhab It controls a sonos connect (non amp) connected to the receiver in the living room It controls a

  • How to interface with buttons on IR eye?

    I have gotten an arduino to process the IR signals from a B&O eye, but I would also like to be able to process the Timer / Vol-up / Vol-dn / Play buttons and LEDs on the puck. In looking at the diagram for the service manual, it seems the buttons are connected to a Philips PCF8574 I/O to i2c expander. The address seems to be 0x20 << 1 bit for read/write, which matches the data sheet, and i2c scanner recipe. However I am unable to read/write from the controller. I tried rolling my own comms

    Did you figure out the i2c communication from the eye?

  • Re: B&O IR and Arduino

    I have this working with a TSOP 7000, and now an IR Eye I got off ebay. The IR eye has TX/RX connectors - which I assume are related to the buttons on the front. Does anybody know how to make use of them via an arduino?

  • Re: Raspberry PI as media center steered by Beolink 4

    The circuit for my Arduino is essentially the one on page 1 of this thread. The software is at https://github.com/samsp99/Beomote . On the Pi, I am running openhab using the openhabian option from openhab.org, together with a couple of standard bindings, and https://github.com/samsp99/openhab2-addons/tree/hdmi-cec/addons/binding/org.openhab.binding.hdmicec TSOP 7000 are available from ebay.

  • Re: Raspberry PI as media center steered by Beolink 4

    I have had a love of B&O hardware for decades, but could not justify the resources to buy it, particularly for TV/Video equipment where the price/functionality is not there. I have admired the integration of a complete B&O system and wanted to achieve the same thing in a heterogeneous environment. I wanted something similar to logitech harmony, but cleaner using a BEO 4 or BeoRemote One. I have now built it. IR signals are received by an Arduino Nano together with a TSOP 7000 IR reciever

  • Re: Raspberry PI as media center steered by Beolink 4

    I have been playing with a Raspberry Pi with Lirc, and did not find any success. However I did see a link to a github repo for BeoMote which is a library for use with an Arduino. The original was designed for a B&O eye, and I am using a TSOP 7000. I have reworked a clone and have it working pretty reliably with an Arduino Uno. The circuit is the same as in this thread, but without the 4k7 resistor. I have it hooked up to the 3.3v and pin 3 of my Uno. Pressing remote buttons will result in translated

    did you get this to work with the Beo4?
