  • Re: New BeoPlay V1-40 or used BV7-40 Mk 3?

    [quote user="moxxey"] [quote user="mawheele"] I don't agree with Moxxey's input on the MKIII. You'll find it less bright... [/quote] Actually, some movies and PS3 games were unwatchable/unplayable and I had friends state that they were very surprised how poor the MKIII was at displaying shades of grey or black. Was just too dark. MKIV was a revelation in comparison. [/quote] Good evening, As I currently own the MkIII, I know why the picture was too dark when playing

  • Re: PC to BV 7 mk 2 via DVI-I no picture

    [quote user="olvisab"] As anybody pluged a laptop on a bv7 with dvi with success ? [/quote] Yes, on a BV7 Mk3. My older Macbook Pro (2008) has a DVI connection for video as well as an optical output for audio. I use a DVI to HDMI adapter and I select 1920X1080p 60hz for resolution. For audio, I use an optical to coaxial converter (bought from Monoprice). I set the Beovision to use HDMI for video and SPDIF for audio. This configuration works perfectly. When the handshaking is done, I select

  • Re: Best puc control for a ps3 ?

    Good morning, I use the PS3 Logitech PUC control for my BV7 Mk3 and that works perfectly. You need the PS3 Logitech IR to Bluetooth converter and an IR emitter. You connect the IR emitter to your Beovision and tape its emitting diode to the Logitech converter. You pair the Logitech with the PS3 after and its done. I never had any problems with this configuration and I use the PS3 almost every day as a media and Blu-Ray player. The RE-BL converter is an other possibility but much more expensive. Good

  • Re: Spdif out to beolab 5 with a bv 7 40, is it possible ?

    [quote user="olvisab"]The quality of sound is absolutely not the same. This has been already discussed in another old thread. The d/a converter of the bl5 is of better quality by far. It is not a problem because I will probably use a non b&o tv for this purpose only, but it is a pity even if I understand the reason you mentioned. I will use the bv 7 40 mk6 from another room in order to drive my 5.1 setup only for watching movies, thanks to the listening preset function and the MLGW

  • Re: LC1 dismantling

    [quote user="Leslie"] I think I just cut the leads of the cap and soldered the new one on top. So I did not removed the board. [/quote] Thanks! I will then try that first and leave the red capacitor to see if the problem is solved (light turns off after a few seconds, then flashes). I searched the archived forum and found only that less than satisfying solution to remove the board: http://archivedforum.beoworld.org/forums/p/29305/231828.aspx#231828 Thanks, Jean

  • Re: LC1 dismantling

    Good evening, Thank you very much for your replies and sorry for the late reply. In fact, I had already removed the screws and tested one capacitor with an ESR meter. It is bad without any doubt. The problem is to remove the small board. It is retained by two metallic plates. Can it be just pulled out by prying it or a more complicated procedure is required to remove it ? I have included two pictures. The first is my own LC1 showing the two capacitors I want to replace and the second is Leslie's

  • Re: LC1 dismantling

    Hi everybody, Just to say that I repaired my LC1 successfully. Replacing only the axial capacitor that measured bad was sufficient to bring it back in operation. I did exactly what Leslie did: soldering the new capacitor on the pins of the removed bad one. I did some research about opening the housing and it is not possible without forcing the top and the bottom parts with a screwdriver. Best regards, Jean

  • Re: beovision 7 40 mk5 with dvd drive instead of bluray drive , possible ?

    Good evening, The DVD drive was available only from BV 7 Mk1 to Mk3. From Mk4 and upwards, it was a Blu-Ray drive. A version of the BV7 was also available without a drive. I currently own a BV7 Mk3 and it has the DVD drive. A Blu-Ray drive was available for retrofit at some point in time, but it was severely limited in the file formats it could read. So, I decided to keep the DVD drive and add a PS3 for Blu-Ray playback as well as playing HD video files. I still use the built-in DVD drive for standard

  • Re: Homemedia additional functionality - what's your wishlist?

    Good evening, Is EXFAT file format now supported for USB sticks or hard disks? This allows for files of size greater than 4GB. If no, this should be added. Also, for the next Avant (Mk II), support for UHD in photos and videos (including the addition of necessary hardware for H. 265 decoding). Then, the new Avant will be a truly finished product. Regards, Jean

  • Metz TV division sold to Chinese company

    Another European TV manufacturer gone: http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Deals/Skyworth-buying-bankrupt-German-company-s-TV-business and http://www.acxit.com/cn/metz-future-is-secured/ I remember seeing Metz TVs in the CRT era. I have no idea if their latest flat screen models were high-end or not. The flash division will remain in German hands. Hoping that the same will not occur to B&O. Good reading, Jean
