    Connect a PC to a BV7-40

    Hi

    Is it correct, that in order to connect a PC (VGA) to a BV7-40 (DVI) I should use a DVI->VGA cable, and select "DVI-I" in the connection menu for AV4?

     

    Thanks

    Dont think this is possible. The PC must have DVI-output.

    Yes, you are right. This works perfectly with my BV7-40. I have programmed a list option "PC" on my Beo4 for this.

    Re: Connect a PC to a BV7-40

    I have a similar setup only thing is I have my BV7 masterlinked to the Ouverture which is connected to the Beolab 8000s.  I am trying to get the PC sound to the Beolab 8000's - on the Beo4 remote I try AV...PC, to activate, but it doesn't seem to take.  Have you tried anything similar.

    I think the Ouverture does not detect the PC command, because it is too old.... Connect your BL 8000 to the BV7, set BV7 to V.OPT 2, Ouverture to A.OPT 0. Audio and Video must be masterlinked. In this way you will control all your devices via BV7 and you have PC sound on your BL 8000. Have fun...

    How do you connect the PC to BV7? If you have only connected it with the DVI-VGA cable, you will obviously not get the PC sound because the DVI interface does not transmit sound.
