    Re: BS5 sw update

    Any news on the cost of this additional input module?

    Or can any USB ADC be used?

    Re: BS5 sw update

    How can you stream from a wireless iOS device?

    I'm about to go on holiday with a friend who has a BeoSound 5 on his boat, we cant put music on to the BeoSound 5 as none of us will have a laptop, so this would be a great way of getting the music we want to listen to playing on the boat, rather than having to play CD's on the on-board BeoCenter 2!

    As usual there are no specifications or instructions with the update.  I guess we will have to "stay tuned".  The update worked without any problems so far.

    I would guess it is probably like the setup described for the Beosound 5 Encore.  Peter posted the user guides for the Beosound 5 Encore.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    The BeoSound 5 userguide has been updated already on the B&O site. It says "You can listen to music from an external device, such as a smartphone or a computer, on the speakers of your music system. The device must be connected to the same network as BeoSound 5 and an application on your device is required to communicate with BeoSound 5. Once communication is established, the ‘control’ over BeoSound 5 is taken by the external device. There is no mention of what this "application" is and no indication of it on the iTunes app store yet.

    The userguide also mentions an optional bluetooth dongle for adding bluetooth devices to the A.Aux.

    Thanks beojeff for the information.  That user guide wasn't there when I looked.

    For anyone who might have been thinking the same thing: I tried connecting my iPhone to my BeoMaster 5 via the iPhone to USB cable. Sound did not come through via the A.Aux.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    That would be too easy!!!

    The User Guide certainly looks as if they are improving things and tempting me into buying one!

    The streaming wirelessly from an iOS device bit looks as if it could just be AirPlay via an AirPort Express which then in turn plugs into the USB to Phono device.

    The other option looks to be Bluetooth, has anyone got a bluetooth dongle that they could try with the system?

    If not does anyone know which USB to phono device will work?? Would be great to get one before I go away on Thursday afternoon!

    To connect a device as a line input you can connect a behringer uca222 converter.

    You can also connect a airport express to THE behringer. That 's the way to stream music to the beosound 5

    Re: BS5 sw update

    After downloading the s/w, I picked up my LG Win7 phone and pressed the "Play To" icon on the front screen of the phone. It scanned and found the BeoMaster 5 after 1-2 sec, and gave me the option to select music, pictures or video. Selected pictures stored on my phone just for fun and they showed up on screen, then I selected an album stored on my phone and it was instantly played through my BL5's - with the album art popping up on the BeoSound 5 screen as well as on the phone.

    Suddenly my phone became what the Beo5 should have been from day one: a true interactive product.

    My BeoMaster 5 is hardwired into an Apple Time Capsule that also takes care of my wifi.

    Simplest upgrade ever on the BS/BM5. And what a radical step in functionality.

    I guess I will need an app for my other phone, the iPhone?

    Re: BS5 sw update

    I have a HTC WP7 and no such luck. Seems the "Play To" app is only for LG. Unless someone knows of a workaround? Still no app update for iOS, so eagerly awaiting this function for my iPhone as well...

    Re: BS5 sw update

    Oh, so the "Play To" is an LG-only app? I was rather surprised when I pressed the button, selected the album and it all worked. Very elegant. And so much more easy to navigate to an album on the phone via the GUI than using the Beo5.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    I googled it and it seems like an LG-only app. And HTC doesnt have a similar one. Eager to get this working on my system, especially since the Beo6 wifi update still isnt here.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    Unfortunately the "A.AUX-feature" - which is great - only works, when BS5 is set to AUDIOMASTER.

    Mine is not,     I have a BS9000 in my setup...

    And still no two-way-communication. Not mentionend on the info display. Seems to be another (earlier?) SW version, than the one, that some members got two months ago.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    I liked the fact that even if my BM5 doesn't have a wifi-dongle, antenna etc, it worked through the Apple Time Capsule. And there was no delay when switching between albums/tracks.

    Problem now is that my LG Win7 doesn't compare to my iPhone with respect to internal storage - I guess a memory card will sort this out, but I do hope that an iPhone app will be available soon. That said, the LG Win7 offers a more intuitive and nicer looking interface when browsing the music collection.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    There are plenty of apps available; here is a starter list for a number of platforms that I found from googling "UPnP/DLNA apps".  This seems to be just another technology that snuck up on me.  Gizmoot for iPhone is free, but I couldn't get it to work.  Next for me is Twonky Mobile, at $2.99, to try later.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    Excellent - please post your findings! In the meantime I will get a memory card for my LG Win7, a phone I am testing for my company that suddenly became my default choice :-) For the first time my iPhone was left switched off.

    Re: BS5 sw update

    At this time, the technology to play the content of a Smartphone on Beosound 5 is to use a DLNA server app in order to make the Beosound 5 "see" the phone as another server. (I think that the next Beoplayer App will add this functionnality, and the inverted functionnality of playing content from a DLNA server (the BM5 for instance))

    No Airplay at this point. (maybe B&O doesn't want to pay the $100 AirPlay tax Whistle)
