  • Re: Sky hd

    Almost certainly the Sky box. The TV won't care whether it's recorded or not, it'll just show what it's sent.

  • Re: BM5 with SSD instead of Hard Drive ?

    I'd rather back it up properly - I'm currently in the process of ripping and encoding DVD/Blu-rays as H.264. I'm not sure I could ever be bothered to do it again - it takes a huge amount of my time. Agreed on the above sceptical comment re BM5 hard discs. It's just a PC? I can't see that swapping it would cause an issue, as long

  • Re: BM5 with SSD instead of Hard Drive ?

    RAID isn't backup though - you should still back it up elsewhere. It's more likely that the unit would fail rather than a drive. Then you lose everything, or spend a lot of time trying to find the exact same hardware and hope you can recover it. I've been running RAID5 for ages, and I've lost the whole array at least 2-3 times due to

  • Re: BM5 with SSD instead of Hard Drive ?

    And flash based hard drives have a limited number of writes before they die - so there's not much in it. Given that in this application there'd be nearly no performance benefit, and that an SSD costs so much more than a normal HDD, I think they've chosen the right one.

  • Re: BV10 Feature Activation

    [quote user="TripEnglish"] Even better: the source names can be changed in the BeoSystem 3. The latest software allows you to re-name sources so that TV could be Cable or Dad DVR. V.MEM could be Apple TV. [/quote] I'm aware of that (I've got that version on my BV7-40) - but you say for HDMI Matrix you're confined to once actual

  • Re: BV10 Feature Activation

    [quote user="TripEnglish"]The way it works is that only a single input is used on the BeoVision and a signal is delivered to the matrix prompting it to change sources. The actual command string would be V.AUX2 + the number of the input on the matrix. V.AUX2 is always used for the matrix.[/quote] I would assume that the individual source names

  • Re: Masterlink balance

    I think Ehlerz discovered that his problem was down to a dodgy connection, and I've yet to bother working out if mine's the same. I had just replaced an ML socket when I noticed the problem, so it's more than possible.

  • Re: Sky HD STB?

    If you had Sky+ before, then the Sky+ PUC works (usually called PACE SKY+). Don't think any others will.

  • Re: "a day in the life of a B&O owner" scenarios

    I don't care how I do it - only that it's intuitive and reliable. My wishlist of requirements: - I'm able to watch and control any video source in any room - in the same way in each room. In full resolution (HD if applicable), and not restricted to watching what someone else is watching in another room (a la the RF/ML bus system of today

  • Re: Differences between Beolab 4 & Beolab 4 PC

    PC version has no powerlink socket, and hence is quite a chunk cheaper.
