  • Re: To Days The Day :-) The New Avant...What Do you Think Of It?

    [quote user="elephant"]We are spreading our love around we were in a different suburb picking up an XC60 to test drive and so we walked around the corner to see the new B&O store and take our 3rd look at the Avant "Oh look" said she/we, "the store is modelled on the BeoLab 18s" [/quote] Over here we have a tunnel modelled after the 18's :)

  • Re: Using Beo4 as remote for MacMini

    [quote user="hfat"]I use remote buddy to control xbmc on my mac mini. [/quote] Slightly off-topic, what is the advantage of using remote buddy? I control Plex (which is a heavily customised version of XBMC) without the need of any third-party software.

    [quote user="crossbytje"] That is an idea! Oh well, let B&O first sort things out with the new avant, I'm patient and enjoy the phase prior to buying, getting to know all about the product. Eventually, on many occasions, I'm better informed than the salesman by the time I get my money out of my pocket. [/quote] I visited my dealer yesterday and I told him "bad stuff about the avant and the production halt". He (and his boss) did not have any clue... After looking up

  • Re: Beovision Avant 85"

    [quote user="Marco6474"] Avant 55" launch price in France is 8900 euros / $12,000 (special offer for the world cup). Why is there a $4,000 difference? [/quote] Different markets, volumes and economics. The same applies to European cars which costs less (sometimes much less) in the US than in Europe. Compare price lists for BMW for example...

    [quote user="crossbytje"] In the meanwhile, I'll wait a little longer, until my current LG dies. Unfortunately, that is the precondition for buying a new set in terms of the WAF (or in my case the BAF). [/quote] When she's not around, throw a bucket of water at the TV :)

    [quote user="The Beonic Man"] I am getting a strong feeling from these posts that our fellow Scandinavian enthusiasts are left to install their B&O products themselves!! Is this the case? Not sure I could cope with that! :) [/quote] Out of curiosity, do you get charged for installation in other countries? When my dealer installed my BV10 (easel stand), there were 2 people. They installed two BL 6000, brackets for a Mac/Airport Extreme/PS3. CHF 1000 (~ EUR 820).

    [quote user="Hiort"] It does not help you, but I had (have) the same problem on my BV10 MKii. Not that frequent though. [/quote] Off-topic: On my BV 10 (I'm afraid I don't know which MK, it is from 2011 with 3 HDMI ports if it can help), the lockups were solved with a software update (I think I'm on build 227).

    [quote user="Michael"]I have to answer quickly due to my vacation starting tomorrow and I have yet been able to pack a single shirt! I tried 4K from my macbook pro and it can only output maximum 30hz (according to apple)[/quote] As far as I know, this is a limitation of HDMI 1.4. HDMI 2.0 should allow frequencies of at least 60Hz.

  • Re: Upscaling on the new Beovision Avant 55"

    [quote user="Millemissen"] The VLC (and the Mac) can not decode a DTS-HD MA soundtrack. And since the Avant also can't handle it, it picks the core DTS track - if you passthrough that. All B&O tv's demands external decoding (to PCM) of the HD sound formats to play these. MM [/quote] Thank you for the clarification, I was not aware of the ability to pick the dts core. I always thought that I needed a second, separate audio track, or to have the computer convert the audio on the
