    Masterlink Question

    We currently have the following set up:   Main room has an Avant with four speakers and sub and a Beosound 3000, Link room 2 has the circular wall mounted ir receiver with volume and on/off and a pair of speakers, link room 3 has a computer and Beoport with speakers.

    All of the Masterlink connections are in the main room behind the Avant. In Link room 2 there are two powerlink wires coming out of the wall which  are then connected two the two speakers.

    When our new BV7 arrives, I want to move the Avant to Link room 2. My problem is when I touch TV on the Beo 4  in addition to activating the Avant, the ir receiver on the wall will receive the signal and also activate TV through the other two speakers in the room. Is there some sort of Option setting I can use to avoid this problem?

    Taking it a step further, is there a way I can connect four speakers to the Avant for surround sound but still use the two powerlink wires coming through the wall  so that I still have access to netradio/netmusic and the CD player located in the main room?

    Thanks!

    I take it that there is no Masterlink wire going into the link room, as the obvious thing to do is use the Avant as a link room TV. If this is not feasible or desirable, set the link room speakers to option 4 and you will need to press LINK before they will react to a command.

    Thanks!  The only Masterlink wireing in the link room is in the wall to the ir receiver. The only connections I have access to in the link room are the two powerlink connections for the two speakers. When B and O wired the house we had no intention and no desire to have a TV in the link room. Also, I did not think it was possible to link tvs in the US?  Or is it just pictue that can not be sent via Masterlink here in the US?

    Re: Masterlink Question

    No video is sent via "Masterlink" in any configuration in Europe or the US, only audio and control signals.

    Video is distributed via a coax cable (analogue) from the RF output marked "Link" on the Master Beovision and is taken to the aerial input of the link TV which means the Link TV can be a B&O or non B&O TV. However if you use a non-B&O TV you will need a means of control via the Beo4, so you would also need any B&O product in the link room which can provide this remote control such as a Beolink Passive or Beolab 3500 etc.

    It seems then that it is not possible to use the two link speakers also as speakers in a surround sound set up, at least not with the present wiring...ie no masterlink connection in the room, just two powerlink and ir receiver on the wall.

    Re: Masterlink Question

    What would happen if I connected the power link connections I currently have in the wall to one set of inputs on the speakers and then connected the front speaker out from the Avant to the second powerlink input on the speakers?

    I understand that they are designed for daisy chaining, but if I activated just the Avant, would the input from the masterlink be off and do nothing and vice versa? I am sure it wont work but thought I would ask in case I am wrong.
