  • Controlling XBMC from BeoVision

    As most of us know that neither BeoMedia or BeoMaster are suitable as media server and while B&O now pushes AppleTV it might not be for everybody and we'll never see something like Kaleidescape from B&O. Closest for me would be to run XBMC which can run on either Linux or Windows based system. So my question is if anyone has looked into make it possible to control a XBMC unit via B&O PUC which would be quite easy there are plenty of nice USB-based IR-receivers available on the market

    Well, I'll choose to ignore the majority of the replies except for DoubleU as it's the only response which actually sticked to the topic. I'm not trying to alienate people; but to be honest; I didn't ask to suggestion to upgrade my TV-set to BV11 and I already made it clear that AppleTV is not an option as I don't have any Apple products and don't plan to get any and as well with the limit of 720p it's not for me. And for those of You who didn't bother reading up a

    Going WISA I think is a good idea; but still as it's using the 5GHz-band, so it's short range and if I dont recall it wrong B&O says 25m range in open view; so with a couple of walls in the way it's going to drop quite fast. One of the reason why I choose to go the wired ML-route when doing a massive renovation of an old house was that I really wanted to be able to pull the audio from the various sources; radio, tv, cd, beogram, etc. all around in the house. Do I need multi room feature

    Well, looking at the BeoPort this box might very well be the weaker component when injecting the audio to the ML-network and of course beside the quality of the ML-cable. So looking at my own setup then; I'm using the Sonos Connect to play audio connected via optical link to media pc with a SB Audigy 24-bit which then feeds the audio to the BeoPort. The BeoPort then feeds the audio to the ML-network which is based on CAT7 1200MHz installation cable. So I would guess of course if I go way beyond

    @Millemissen: Yes, as mentioned, all audio is anyway played through the PC to ensure that the Audigy card is used for the analog audio output to the BeoPort. The Sonos is directly connected to the Audigy card using optical cabel. So the PC is the audio hub. @DoubleU: Thanks for this one; haven't read about these guys. But, I've in the past looked at Herr Doktor Vogel who does a similar upgrade on his side. Some init reading about the topic can be found here

  • Re: MasterLink in the 21st Century

    Have had the same thought in the past regarding how to improve the sound quality in my own system using BeoPort as the bridge to the ML-network. From the initial start I've been using a BeoPort together with a VIA Tech VIA EPIA MII-Series (same board used in BeoMedia) based system where I thought the audio output sounded a bit flat from the EPIA vinyl audio chipset. So I bought and added a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS PCMCIA 24-bit card, which I didn't have the significant hope for improvement

  • Where is the IR located on BeoCom 6000?

    Just curious; but where is the infrared emittor located on the BeoCom 6000 Mk1 and Mk2? Asking since I assumed that the two black dots onthe top of the BC6000 Mk1 was the IR sender; but where is it then located on the Mk2 handset? On the Mk2 there is the contact for the headset.

  • Re: HDMI EDID issues with BeoVision 10

    Ok, guess that they've then fixed the HD Graphics 4400 issues then. Give it a spinn with various video and audio formats; but if what you feed it works out that really great then. Then it would be proper working Netflix that I need to wait for then as moving to OpenELEC now isn't an option for me. Good things is that you will not have any issues with hdmi drop outs at all.

  • Re: N Radio dropping out.

    Most likely not an issue on your side but rather on the streaming source. So try to access the specific radio stations stream via their own home page directly from any of the PC or Macs that you might have at home; might just be that the source has too many connections and not bandwidth enough. So text also the same station during various times to see if the same issue occurs.

  • Re: HDMI EDID issues with BeoVision 10

    [quote user="DoubleU"]That's what I do now, but it lacks 1080p. Not a real problem, 720p is just fine, but I just want something different to play with.[/quote] Correct and the lack of support for 1080p is an issue for me also as I don't have any other Apple products it doesn't really appeal to get into that ecosystem.
