    Beo4 Lintronic, something else.......

    Like everyone else - I love my Beo4....... and I know we have talked about this before, but......

    even more so now that I have remotes from other manufactures which are awful.

    I know people love the Lintronic system - do they have a U.S. model?  which one do people suggest?  Anything else out there which is good for using the Beo4 to control other stuff?

    I ma using lintronic in US. You will typically need the TT455-RT-238 (the one I got) This will receive and transmit both B&O and regular Ir signals. They ship without the powersupply, If you dont have a standard powersupply, you can get one at radioshack.

    I am using mine to control my projector, cablebox and a PC with music and my B&O.

    It looks good - and I have been following the comments over the years.

    Just a little turned off by the price (thank you $US these days) and that the company is in Europe if I have questions/problems.

    What cables would I need and can I use my Mac to program it?

    Re: Beo4 Lintronic, something else.......

    Lintronic is a VERY VERY flexible device. As has been stated below. A simple Radio Shack power adapter will do. The "Configurator" is the application you use to program the Lintronic455-238, unfortunately, the app is windows only. So if you have a preintel mac, you'll need Virtual PC and Windows XP as well as a keyspan serial to USB adapter. I have a Mac at home, but I used my (UGH) work PC to program the lintronic. With PC's all you'll need is a male to female serial cable.

    The latest version of configurator is very simple to use, and with a little practice you'll be working with it quite well.

    I'm in the US, but the Lintronic developer is VERY helpful if you get into trouble or are confused (via email).

    I can attest to his willingness to help out.

    Feel free to message me and we can chat offline if you want any more information from a person who very very very recently purchased Lintronic and has worked through the little aches to get it working well.


    Love B&O, but no longer addicted.

    The Lintronic seems to be the way to go, but I not sure I am ready for the $400 price tag.

    I am also in the US. I have used Lintronic for aout two years now. It is a great little box. Michael at Lintronic is always amazingly responsive. I use it to control my Apple TV and X-10. I also use it to control my AppleTV from ML rooms via whole house X-10. Not ideal, but it works.

    I'm glad to help if you have questions as well.
