  • Re: Bv11 Nvidia Shield Netflix - no 5.1 audio

    [quote user="boskonay"] I can see my Avant is running 1.0.11.37404 I presume I need to ask my dealer to request access to 1.0.11.37494 ? Is the only change that DD+ works? ( Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA? [/quote] To the best of my knowledge, there aren’t any B&O Devices which support TrueHD and DTS-HD, Eclipse included.

  • BV10 - How to display refresh rate?

    The Netflix app on my nvidia Shield has started switching frame rates automatically. How do I find out the current frame rate sent to the TV on a BV10? The standard service menu (0-0-Go) doesn’t seem to display the information. I’m looking for something like “Signal Information” included in the BV11 hidden menu.

    [quote user="Beobuddy"] After reading it leaves me a bit confused. I have a BV9 with a Shield. same issue, only 2.0 sound. But using the ATV3, I have 5.1 sound coming from the ATV3. So, what's the real difference? My BV obviously hasn't the right EDID, but it seems that the ATV3 doesn't care. [/quote] It's normal, the Shield and the Apple TV have different capabilities. I will try to explain, let me know if I don't make sense. Netflix on the Shield only carries DD+ streams

    I will also add that some devices do not rely exclusively on the EDID. A first generation Amazon Fire TV has the option to force DD+ output even if the EDID says it's not supported.

    [quote user="Beobuddy"] Thanks for summarizing this. Clear and short. But, the next thing comes to mind when I think of some sort of same situation. On the Shield there is PrimeVideo from Amazon, the same happens there. Only 2.0 stereo instead of the 5.1 (The Grand Tour, 5.1 available). The Shield is an Android based device, so which one is to "blame" for this behaviour, The app Netflix and/or Primevideo or the Android that is restricting the app as it a kind of layer between

    [quote user="talfaia"] Hi Marcello, What free software did you use to modify the EDID from you BV11? Thanks [/quote] I used SwitchResX on a Mac (the basic unregistered version allows you to dump the EDID), but there are plenty of solutions for Windows as well. To modify it and add EAC3 (DD+) I used a freely available tool: http://www.lightwareusa.com/support-/downloads/667-advanced-edid-editor-software Finally, you can validate the resulting HEX string using a web tool called edidreader

    [quote user="Boxsti"] Is there news? My Avant still does not support 5.1 with shield and netflix :-( [/quote] My BV11was updated a few months ago, and I think some Avant users got the update as well. Of course this happened just days after I bought two Dr HDMI devices to enable DD+ detection myself... I think the update was targeted at those who complained to Beocare, maybe you should contact them with the serial number of your TV.

  • Re: BEOVISION ECLIPSE

    [quote user="Michael"] This is a bit sad to read but not surprising. Most cheap scalers do a bad job at it and I can see a big difference on the Avant scaler and cheaper sets. I also prefer letting the Avant scale up media rather than via my Nvidia Shield Android device. It is a noticeable difference. The Apple TV 4 makes a good job scaling up media too but I think the Avant is even better. Not sure how LG webOS scaling looks but hopefully its not too bad - most of my media is in HD (720p

    Imagine if this was an LG-Branded TV instead of a "Beovision". LG Eclipse - "Powered by Bang & Olufsen" ("Powered" came to mind first and it's not the best word - but you get the concept). At 10K, the B&O sound center would be a digestible premium over the normal LG offering. They would sell this by the hundreds on day one. Instead, the lack of the standard Beovision features in the same B&O branded TV, at the same price, diminishes the product for us

[/quote] You think? I'm really not sure you understand the "masses" if you believe this would cause hundreds of sales. Two reasons: 1) Most people I know think spending £800 on a soundbar to be a tonne of cash. Seriously. That's expensive for the average consumer. The soundbar
