    Beosound 8 Issues with Beo5

    I have configured my Beo5 to work with my Beosound 8 using the official software from Version 4.11

     

    Has anyone had issues controlling a Beosound 8 with this? Mine doesn't work at all - No Play/Pause, Previous or Next and the wheel will not control the volume.

    Did you option program your beosound 8?

    Have a look at the faq section of B&O web site.

    What do you mean by Option program? I just selected Beosound 8 in the config software and it doesnt work. I'll have a look at the FAQs

    Re: Beosound 8 Issues with Beo5

    B&O Products have different options to react when receiving IR signals. These are V.Opt for video products, A.Opt for audio products and L.Opt for link room products. These Options are from 0 to 6. Option programming is done with Beo4 or Beo5/6. Usually when you have only one B&O product in a room, you set Option 1. Factory setting for Beosound 8 is 5, so this could be your problem.

    Re: Beosound 8 Issues with Beo5

    OK, I just read your latest post. So let's try the following (from the FAQ), asuming you have only a Beo5 at hand and no Beo4.

    Option programming with Beo5/Beo6:

    • While holding the • button, press the centre button to bring up the SETUP menu on Beo5/Beo6.
    • Let go of both buttons.
    • Press ‘Option Pgm’ to bring up the Option Programming display on Beo5/Beo6.
    • Press the button that matches the zone in which the audio system is placed, for example, ‘Audio Area
