    Beotime question

    Is there any way to set the alarm on the Beotime to turn on a device such as the TV without the alarm chime in the the Beotime also sounding?

    Beovision 7-55 with Beolab 7-4, 9s and 4000s

    Beovision 10-40 with Beolab 1s and 6000s

    Beosound 1, 5, 2000, and 3000

    Beotime, Beotalk, Beocoms

    Re: Beotime question

    To quote the above linked thread,

    Vienna:

    "When the selected alarm source switches on, you will also hear the sound of an
    ordinary built-in alarm to make sure you wake up."

    Big Smile i'ts not a bug, it's a feature ...

    Who else has decided against a BeoTime because of this? I've been really keen on getting one of these until I read about that "feature."

    Sad

    To be fair the alarm is fairly unobstrusive and can very easily be turned off, I can't see how it is that much of a problem. However it would be nice to have an option to turn off!

    I think it is a good feature: Even if your TV or Audio-System fails to start or simply in the case of a power loss in your house: The Beotime will ring and wake you up.

    Ok, that doesn't make me so angry anymore. But I can't help thinking that will still be really annoying.

    Re: Beotime question

    I think it HAS to be annoying in some way: It's intended to wake you up and not to make you feel like "Ah, that's so beautiful and relaxing and zzzzzzzZZZZ!" Big Smile

    Personaly I like the Beotime: The Alarm goes off in the morning, music starts... I like it.

    The only real negative facts:
    - For a 300 Euro Alarm clock I insist on better quality control and 3 equaly backlit displays! I habe 2 Beotimes and you can see a slightly different backlight on both of them (e.g. 1 of the 3 displays is darker than the other 2...)
    - touch sensivity is not that great: The displays don't light up if you just slightly touch the Beotime... she likes it a little bit harder Wink

    For a B&O product this is not acceptable and if you want to be an attractive brand you should avoid those quality problems: A bad example, I know, but I don't think that a 300 Euro Apple Alarm clock would suffer from such problems becaus Apple (most of the time) DOES its homework!

    Well I suppose you are right!! Not like its any different from my current routine!

    What happens now is that my cellphone wakes me up and I reach over to turn off the alarm and grab the Beo4 to play a CD or my iPod. I would really like to get rid of that first step!!! Laughing

    Then go and get yourself a Beotime! :-)

    It can even control the light when you activate the secret menu of that thing ;-)
