  • Re: BeoLiving news & support from Khimo!

    [quote user="Khimo Support"]On HomeKit integration, there is no specific plan at the moment but we are looking into it.[/quote] Any news on Apple HomeKit integration? I manage all my smart devices at home via Apple HomeKit (e.g. Nuki Smart Lock, Philips hue lights, Netatome and Eve sensors). It would be great to integrate my Bang&Olufsen devices (e.g. setting a cinema mood, or turning everything off when locking the door) respectively to control selected devices with the BeoRemote One

    [quote user="Carolpa"]Airplay: no meta data, just the source AirPlay is shown.[/quote] How disappointing, same problems like at the Beosound 35. Chromecast meta-data are displayed but no meta-data when using Airplay. Perhaps the following link will give the B&O software developer some hints how to do solve it for Airplay ( https://appcodelabs.com/show-artist-song-metadata-using-airplay-on-raspberry-pi ).

  • Re: Roon Labs – Who is using it and how?

    I can only answer some of your questions. I am using Airplay to stream to my loudspeakers, because you can group different airplay speakers within the Roon app. For grouping Chromecast speakers you need to use the Google Home app, additionally. And I do not like to change apps all the time.

  • Re: Airplay2 on B&O products reliable?

    [quote user="mbolo01"]I recently asked support about the status of it and their answer had no sense again, but we can hope that this will change if B&O strategy is to focus more on AP and CC.[/quote] ... interesting. I placed this issue nearly two years ago. The feedback I got was, that it will be put on the change request list. In the beginning that made me confident that something will happen one day. But after more than 1,5 years nothing changed. In my eyes a big disappointment.

  • Re: Airplay2 on B&O products reliable?

    [quote user="mbolo01"]I disagree here, or i misinterpreted you, but I think that there are lot of contents to stream within the B&O ecosystem[/quote] I am not aware how to distribute / stream Tidal or Qobuz via NetLink (NL). And the usability of DLNA and Deezer within the B&O app is really limited, for me no joy to use. Additionally I have to use Chromecast, because B&O ist not able to display the meta data of Airplay on my Beosounds 35. With Chromecast no „touch to join“

    [quote user="Jaffrey2230"]It is not worth investing on maintaining their own proprietary platform unless there is a clear differentiator.[/quote] As long as B&O is not able or willing to invest heavily into the B&O app regarding the management of content (TuneIn and a very limited interface to Deezer and DNLA is not sufficient) it is a good decision to give up on NL (NetLink) in order to save money. „Touch to join“ is a really nice feature. But without content to stream

  • Re: RIP BeoLink Multiroom (1982-2020)

    [quote user="Mikipidia"]last time I asked it was a 20/80 split between beolink and ap2/CC, I bet that has gone even more the way of AP2/CC.[/quote] For me it sounds like a self fulfilling prophecy. Looking at the usability of the B&O app, listening to Radio / TuneIn the offered functionalities within the B&O app are good. When you want to listen too Deezer, the Musik functionalities are limited and I am forced to use the Deezer app at least sometimes (and over time I found myself

    Hopefully someone in B&O still reads this forum and cares. It would be great, if the B&O could display the Cover-Art within the B&O app when using Airplay . When using Chromecast it is working great, the Cover-Art is shown. Why not when using Airplay? The information is available in the Airplay stream.

  • Re: AIRPLAY OVER MULTIROOM

    [quote user="Millemissen"]Why two apps?[/quote] Main reason I do not use the B&O App is, because it does not offer Deezer „FLOW“ and „Music by Mood“ at least I did not find it. But perhaps it is as hidden as the Airplay distribution feature? In general in my eyes the B&O App interface to Deezer and to DLNA is much too limited to really use and enjoy it.
