    The unique, one and only SOFTWARE UPDATE THREAD!

    Happy new year everybody!

    I'm starting this new thread to fill a gap in beoworld : there is no page with informations about the latest software version available for all B&O common platforms that are updated frequently : BS3, BV8 and BS5.
    We could update this thread each time a new software is released with the full changelog (so you can see what things have changed for your specific products. I'm writing here the changelog for the common BS3/BV8 and BS5 softwares, you can complete it with past releases and give me the correct software n# for current versions (I don't know what's the latest software n# for BV8 and BS5). Maybe I should update this first post each time a new software is released.
    If someone has the changelog for BV8/10 DVB HD tuner (which is updated separately and can be done bu the user), it could be interesting to post it here also!

    I hope that this will help!Smile

    Re: The unique, one and only SOFTWARE UPDATE THREAD!

    Hi mbee,

    I very much welcome your initiative!! Information about B&O software updates, both sw number and functional changes, has always been very high on my wishlist. So if you can manage to update us on a regular base it will certainly be highly appreciated. 

    Thanks

    Re: The unique, one and only SOFTWARE UPDATE THREAD!

    Andreabang : don't try to change anything in that menu, it's the service menu, not a customer-level menu... So if you don't understand, don't touch!

    The only thing interesting for you is your software n#

    Teletom : I don't receive information about each B&O software update : sometimes I can get ones from my dealer, sometimes from Beoworld... It's a public thread, so everyone with informations about SW can help!

    Great idear

    I have been missing this for a while :-)

    I unfortunately have to add, that 7.05 also speeds up the fans with dramatically increased fannoise as a result. (at least on 7-40 MK IV)

    Dont know if the updates are intended to be discussed here, or only presented ? If the latter is the case, i apologize :-)

    Spiros : good idea, but pinning a thread is a moderator's choice...

    By the way : I updated the BS5 part with yesterday's software update. If someone can give the full changelog, it would be perfect!

    A 7.11 version is coming for Beosystem-3 based TVs. Apparently, the fan issue is fixed according to some "beta testers" from the Beoworld Scandinavian forum.

    This post is a very good idea !!!

    For BV7-32/TYPE 9312/MKII/

    Latest Software is software version is 6.33 with a part number of 8344431. No idea about the improvment made by this software but it should make the TV HdReady.

    Re: The unique, one and only SOFTWARE UPDATE THREAD!

    Hopefully this discussion will get pinned. 

    7.11 is hopefully a significant release. I'm hoping for fixes to the fan issue, resolution of picture quality degradation with 7.05 in both SD and HD versus 6.xx and bug fixes to Blu-Ray drive. I've gone back to 6.11 currently as 7.05 was totally unacceptable and our B&O engineer felt more comfortable with it due to other customer issues he had seen.

    Hi HeKoch

    So i was told by my dealer who has been in contact with the  B&O tecdepartment multiple times since i told him about the problems i had. 

    But then again, i have been disappointed with the latest softwareupdates, so i guess we just have to wait and see. If it is anything like SW 7.05, we will probably experience some brand new issues like flames coming out of the cabinets or what do i know :-)

    Re: The unique, one and only SOFTWARE UPDATE THREAD!

    Waow, it seems that there are some very well informed guys here that already knows the changelog of future updates due in 10 weeks! Great!!

    Does somebody knows if the DVB HD "big update" of week 14 will speed up this module (which is very slow...)

    Any news about an upcoming BV8/10 platform update?

    Hi Mbee

    I dont know that but like you i hope for massive improvements. However, my experience tells me not to get my hopes up, remember that SW 7.05 passed the quality test (???), and so did the latest DVB-HD updates. B&O are NOT very good at this, and even though we will probably see improvements on some issues, there will undoubtedly be other and new issues. And then we will have to wait ANOTHER 6 months.

    Lets hope that this update is THE ONE that proves me wrong :-)
