Many good reasons why you should move to HW6.1 - Variables, one of the strong features of the TT455-RT-238 HW6.1

I wanted to share my experience with the IR receiver :
Because I did not want to see an IR receiver on the wall, i was looking for a solution to hide the IR receiver.
I was thinking to use the IR-8087030 for better sensitivity and modify it a bit by extending the IR receiver diode BPW82 with a cable, could certainly be done, but it is not the most easy solution.
Then I looked at the schematics of the BV9 and the BS3. I saw the BS3 has a second connector for IR (IR-IN) (used in the case if you hide the IR receiver from the TV with a projector screen) I had the impression this input is just in parallel with the existing receiver of the BV9 (so it is also an output of the IR receiver for the TV set)
So, I just connected (with a standard stereo jack) the BS3 IR-IN to the IR input of the TT445 and guess what .... this works perfect !
So my IR receiver for the TT445 is now the same as the one for the BS3 !!
no extra IR receiver on the wall and it has the same sensitivity as the IR for all the B&O products. :-)
I have enjoyed my -238 for more than a year now.
In the beginning of 2012 tv transmission systems changed in Denmark, so the tuner in my old Pioneer plasma tv was obsolete. The choice was then to buy either a new tv or a settop box. Having a -238 converter and a
Beo4 remote it only required a little programming and the system with settop box and old tv worked with both units acting like one - fully transparent. My Wife and kid could keep using the tv as they were used to.
After 11 months I got a new surround reciever (Marantz), along with a spreadsheet of Marantz RC commands, I could program even more features into my system. Especially discrete power on and off commands is very helpfull - despite the -238 can handle power on/off with variables.
Now I have setup speakes in my kitchen, using the Zone/multiroom functions in the reciever. Thanks to my -238 and the spreadsheet with Marantz RC commands, I can use more advanced function with the Beo4 than with the original Marantz remote.
The configurator just becomes better and better and it is nice to see that You listen to costumer feedback incorporating new features.
Best regards, Klaus
I wish you made products for B&O.
I just want to give you a short info that you were not completly right when saying „we do not support Go + Number commands“.
A member of Beoworld programmed my -238 so it now supports Go+Number commands. He used variables to make it all work. Now I have Go + Number 1 to 9 assigned to functions I don’t use regulary, but want them to be on the Beo4 in case I need them without pulling the original plastic remotes out of the cabinet.
As promised, I send you a picture of my current AV-Setup. Technisat HD8-S DVB-S2 receiver, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii are hidden in the cabinet. The Technisat and the Playstation are controlled through your -238 by low power emitters, TV and Soundbar are controlled by the high power emitters.
The -238 is mounted behind the TV. This was only possible after removing the metal case. The B&O IR-Eye, an unshielded one which works perfectly, receives all commands from my Beo4.
Hope you like it ?
Did a small test installation today with the -238 hanging downward behind the TV, the ir-eye hanging down beneath the Soundbar and an old low power ir-emitter put on the Technisat – and what should I say – it all works flawlessly without any disturbance by the led screen to the ir-eye - It’s incredible. I am sooo happy that all works now !
This is what I drempt of when I bought the Samsung and Technisat stuff 2 years ago. No one, except you and your -238 were able to help me.
The problem with irtrans was that the webinterface was not stable. It was impossible to configure code translations because the webinterface restarted most of the time before I was able to save settings, but the main problem was that there is NO code database, so you have to take your remotes and learn every code you need. Even the codes for B&O remotes. I think this is not acceptable for the price you pay for irtrans.
I also tried the oneremote controller which will be build into the beo4, but this one can control only one device, for example my Samsung TV. It’s not possible to control a second device out of the box. I waited 6 month to get a special programmed version from them, but gave up some days ago. It took weeks until they answered mails, didn’t understand what I wanted.
After all this horror I decided to buy your TT455-RT-238.
I took me only two hours until everything was setup correctly to control my devices.
As soon as I have all installation fixed I will make pictures – with my new Christmas present from my parents – a DSLR camera - for your website.
All nothing special, but with a shining cabinet from lifestyle-av on them ;-)
Thanks a lot and kindest regards
|From Bang&Olufsen in
Hong Kong, we received a story about the TT455-RT-238 controlling
devices at the Mira Hotel.
|From Bang&Olufsen in
CapeTown, Soutch Africa, we have received this picture from their
Scott Salusbury [Scott@beo-sa.co.za] explains:
AV equipment is all Bang & Olufsen; BeoVision4 65", BeoSystem 2, BeoCenter 2, BeoLab 5, 3, and 7 speakers. The B&O IR receiver is split to the BeoSystem 2 and to a Lintronic -238 in a walk-in equipment cupboard off the main room. The 238 controls the Intellibus lighting control system - 15 individual lighting zones, currently 6 scenes. Intellibus control is via RS232 (Thanks Michael for the firmware upgrade) Lighting triggers for the -238 are Beo4/5 remote as well as mag contacts on the automatic sliding door wired to the -238 digital inputs.When you walk in and close the door the lights come up to a welcome scene.
When you open the door again to leave, the lights go back to a standby scene.
The -238 also controls a Multichoice 990 satellite decoder in the cabinet under the screen.
The room is proving to be a fantastic demontration tool.
|B&O in Paris - asked us
to support an RGB controller. Then they created a very nice wall at a
Facebook - ApplicationNote
The RGB LED are behind a woden wall we create to hide the cables and set top box (It's the same type of wall we used in B&o store). The Led illuminates all around the wall to make an aesthetic effect. With the beo5 you can choose the intensity of each color (red,blue,green) to make the color of your choise. You can also start a sequence where the color change it self, at speed of your choise.
A TT455-RT-238 controls a 52" Sony TV, a Strong sat receiver and a Motorola 1920 Set Top Box.
The TT455-RT-238 is placed behind the TV and still controls it perfectly.
The Strong and the Motorola are stored in the cabinet and controlled by the low-power TT-IR-ET03.
|I am (censored)
Well, now, i have understood how to make tt238 works well and i have many units working perfectly in my new home (i just finished to build the new home).
Your tt238, is really a little 'big machine'! With this little box, i am able to have a real full integration with my home automation system.
Everythings works automatically with presence-sensors. Lights, alarm-system, fan, curtains, and now audio-video too. I need only 'to be' in my home, then different scenarios starts in various rooms at the specified time.
Thank you for everything, Michael!
