    Re: New Software

    A very welcome software update and something that will take me to a dealer and finally acquire a Beo6. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that this update does not cause as many issues as the last BS5 update did...

    Re: New Software

    I know thay have been working on this software for a long time, i bought my Beo6 almost a year ago ! and

    the word back then was " new software just arround the corner" . It has been  a long wait.

    But it will make the interface between Beosound 5 and Beo 6 a sweet thing. Smile

    Re: New Software

    They can postpone the launch every month if they want... Next month they will say "the release candidate had still some bugs, wait for the end of the month" Cool

    Every time they are late to release a piece of software, the excuse is that they want to release something "completely bug-free"... And then the soft has a lot of new bugs... Maybe they have to hire some good programmers... Software design has now become more important than physical design (if you release a wonderful product with a poor software, you will struggle to find buyers)

    Re: New Software

    The dealers have been told today that B&O will launch the two-way SW for the BeoSound 5/BeoMaster 5 and the new config tool for the Beo6 on November 15th.

    Delays could be expected, I guess.

    I sometimes use PPlayer in my Ipad. The thing I hope with the new software for Beo6 is that yoy a little more smooth can choose what linkspeakers that shall be activated. If I am in the bedroom and want to play on my MX4002 the speakers in my livingroom where the BM5 is placed also will come alive.

    Re: New Software

    The B&O site and B&O on Facebook now have a video promoting the Beo6's 2-way wifi feature with the BeoSound 5. Yet, there is still no software update for the BeoSound 5.

    Re: New Software

    In the BS5 forum someone said that an update for BS5 will come this thursday. We will see what happen Big Smile Perhaps that is just for the MOTS bugs to be removed.

    Re: New Software

    It seems that they are not ready and that the different departments don´t walk together, the two-way page are gone from B&O site, I cannot find it any more.

    Well, we will see when it popups again :-).

    Re: New Software

    You are right, it is gone. I guess B and O decided it was bad form to advertise an unavailable feature.

    These delays do not bode well for an early adopter. Learned my lesson years ago. Will wait.
