  • Re: Wiring ML

    Hi, It is possible to star wire MasterLink using Cat6a or 7 cable. It is also future proof. You will need a Masterlink hub at the central point which the Cat6a/7 cables connect into and then cables at each socket to convert the RJ45 back into Masterlink. ML Hub: https://goo.gl/images/GdK4oK Leads: https://goo.gl/images/oGmrT6 If you're lucky should be able to find both on ebay. Steven

  • Re: BLGW and Rako

    Hi (late reply). Did you ever change this set-up. Not sure about how the existing Legrand ethernet thing works but if its already running over ethernet is there not a gateway compatible with the existing set-up that could be used? For Rako, yes you would need the dimmer and gateway to make this work with the BLGW. The PILL is limited to the load it can take, so depending on how many GU10s you have this may not be suitable.

  • Re: How to set volume levels and power state using BLGW

    Hi, You're correct in the understanding of the STATE_UPDATE for network link products this is exactly what it is supposed to be used for. I myself found the online status sometimes unreliable (not checked recent updates) because my BV11 would sometimes report online when it wasn't. I guess this could have been background software updates or the likes. So instead I used the online and specific source to trigger macros. So for example, Selecting source Sky TV would turn on the Sky box automatically

  • Re: Beolink gateway (BLGW) control events and ML control

    Rob Tried this last night and forward and back commands were not detected on the BLGW. Using the TV would work as suggested above because the Forward and back commands would be past over the ML to the TV PUC to control the box. Steven

  • Re: Beolink gateway (BLGW) control events and ML control

    Hi Rob, From memory but I can test later, I believe that Masterlink products cannot send "status" commands back to the BLGW outside of the Light and Control commands. I have a similar issue with an old ML TV and the only way I solved it was using a Beo6 remote control and programming a macro when a source was selected, e.g. when pressing "TV" the Beo6 would turn on the source TV but also send a FUNCTION command which was forwarded to the BLGW. I am not sure the hard buttons on

  • Re: BLGW & Alexa without a Khimo account?

    Hi Talfaia, Thanks for providing the retailer ID above. I too was interested in setting up remote access and using IFTTT to integrate with Amazon Alexa. I can report it was incredible simple to configure all components. The Gateway the Khimo account and then linking everything together with IFTTT. Its has so far been rock solid too. I don't think there is any other way to link them, per Jens question, without using Khimo because something is needed to link the local BLGW to a web service. I also

  • BeoVision 11-48 Volume Issue

    Hi all, I’m experiencing an issue with my BeoVision 11 which is intermittent but recently becoming more frequent. When I turn on the tv the volume is 01 and the maximum is 02 so basically cannot hear anything. Power cycling the tv restores the volume to the correct level but clearly something is wrong either with the software or hardware. Has anyone seen something similar? Was it a software issue or did an engineer need to replace something? Thanks in advance Steven

  • Re: new firmeware BLGW 1.5.2

    Hi, Sorry for late reply, been away on holiday. The problem is with a BV10-32. Its is cabled directly into the mastelrink and the send light commands to the BLGW is enabled. The product cannot be controlled from the BLGW nor send light commands to the BLGW. Other masterlink products are BS5, BL3500 and the convertor. All seem to work and music can be shared between them and the converter correctly allows for TV and music to be shared between networklink and masterlink products. Also I have tried

  • Re: new firmeware BLGW 1.5.2

    Having now tested things (admittedly very quickly) I've found no issues with the upgrade once accepting the T&C for all users on the system (luckily not many). Control of Networklink and Masterlink products still works. BeoSound 5 cover art displayed nicely on the BeoLInk2 App. Macros continue to work which used to be my major concern with upgrades software, where previous releases have resulted in macros needing triggers re-saved. The problem I've experienced with the later version of

  • Re: new firmeware BLGW 1.5.2

    Hi Again, Managed to work out the issue with the web panel and it basically fails to load until the user has accepted the new T&C screen. Basically each user needs to visit the admin page of the gateway and logon and accept the T&C. After which the web panel and iPhone app start to work for that user. I'm sure this is a feature but I'm not so sure because I would not want non-admin users having to access the admin setup pages in order to be able to use the iPhone app. Steven
