    Beoport connected to the pc and mac

    I would like to know if it's possible connect beoport to the pc and mac together, so, I would can control link video option with beoplayer (v.tape, tv, dvd...) and n.music, n.radio and frontrow through my mac. I had thought use something like usb splitter, but don't be sure this set up will work.

    I think if you turn on either PC or MAC it should work, otherwise if both are on at the same time I would think it crashes or even worse. The USB connection is 2 way so the PC and Mac would compete over the same resource.

    Maybe a Mac with an Intel processor running Parallels?

    Re: Beoport connected to the pc and mac

    A Mac doesn't need an Intel processor to run Parallels, it's an emulation layer which will run on both PowerPC chips AND Intel chips.

    This isn't a very elegant solution though, as you can't realistically run Parallels all the time because it uses a pretty large amount of system resources.

    To call up link products on a Mac, the only thing I can think of doing is getting an EyeTV, connecting that to your Mac, and get a BeoLink Video terminal and connecting that to your EyeTV.

    You can't connect a BeoPort to two machines at once as far as I'm aware though Sad

    They system requirments for Parallels is Mac OS® X Tiger 10.4 or higher running on an Intel® Mac. see http://www.parallels.com/en/products/desktop/sr/ I hope this makes things a little clearer.

    Parallels and Apple´s Bootcamp both need an Intel cpu, only emulating Windows via VirtualPC works on PPC (verrry slow). I would also try connecting the BeoPort to an IntelMac and try running the BeoApps on Windows via Bootcamp or Parallels. Though I´m not sure, if it will work. Probably give Beocare a call before...he...heRegards, beoberlin

    I have been corrected, shame as Parallels is really pretty impressive, although definitely not something I'd keep open all the time...
