  • Re: Where to download latest Beoplay V1 firmware and PUC'

    Quite, although I think the issue is that with the old firmware you cannot access the download portal even if the TV is connected via Ethernet/WiFi. Once the firmware is updated via USB the you’ll be able to download PUC tables just fine. I’m not sure why the old firmware is unable to connect to the download portal, but from experience I know it cannot. I think your best option is to contact B&O and request the latest firmware via a support ticket. For some reason it is not on their

  • Re: Beoplay v1 software update

    Apologies all - I’ve not been on the forum for a while a didn’t realise there were so many people looking for this. I’ll check to see if I still have the update on a USB stick somewhere. In the meantime I’d suggest contacting B&O support. The download was still available when I wrote the originals post, but I see the page has now been taken down from the B&O site. Assuming I still have it, is there anywhere on the Beoworld site I could upload the file?

  • Re: Beovision 7-40

    From a previous thread “ Dear all, just to say a huge thank you to Keith and all involved in working out the correct hex value for the DVD REG2 command. The relevant command is FC Hex or 252 in decimal. I set my DVD player on my Beovision 7-32 to region free via the masterlink gateway - an alternative approach to the special Beo4 or a correctly programmed Beo5/6. All you need to do is send code 'FC' to the relevant masterlink node. I did this using the excellent MLGW plugin that PhilLondon

    If you have a MLGW or BLGW there is a simple key sequence you can send via masterlink to set it region free

  • Re: Difference between ML Gateway and BL Gateway

    For anyone who is interested - in my view the mlgw is available so cheaply now I think it’s a great way to access home automation from the B&O ecosystem if you’re willing to use an “always on” pc or Mac as the automation controller. Domoticz or Indigo are very good solutions and far more capable than anything natively hosted on the BLGW or BLI. For completeness I should also mention the MLGW is compatible with NL devices as well as ML devices. Quite an underrated product

  • Re: Difference between ML Gateway and BL Gateway

    I have both - unless you have a newer beovision capable of displaying the home control menu then there is little point IMHO. I understand you use a pc based home automation solution interfaced to your MLGW (from your previous posts). I use a similar approach. For advanced users merely using the MLGW or BLGW as a gateway to a more capable automation controller then the difference is minimal. On the other hand if you are making use of drivers hosted on the B&O hardware then the BLGW has the benefit

  • Re: Bathroom solution

    Hi there - if you are using indigo a MLGW or BLGW would be fine. The MLGW is available at a good used price these days (I actually have one for sale) and there is an indigo plugin available. Phil developed the first version and I’ve made some developments. You’re welcome to a copy of the plugin if it would help.

  • Re: BeoLiving news & support from Khimo!

    Hi all, I’ve recently upgraded from the mlgw to the BLGW and I absolutely love it. The home control overlay is a great addition, and the home integration protocol is great - having previously mastered the mlgw protocol it has some limitations (No light or command telegrams), but communication in plain text is more intuitive than the old HEX protocol. My only other small complaint is the documentation, which is in some cases a little patchy, especially for community supplied drivers. Specifically

  • Re: BV Avant 75 - PUC and IR blaster

    Yeah, it’s annoying - they should be labelled but often aren’t. My approach is to hold one of the two emitters in your hand to obscure the signal and work out which is A and B by process of elimination. Remember to label them once you’ve worked it out!
