An object consisting of several parts can
usually only be assembled in one way if the intended result is to be achieved.
For example, a gearbox for a car will not perform optimally according to the
specifications if you omit installing some of the gearwheels. if you manage to
install one gearwheel too many, that will most likely cause trouble as well.
The point of the above is that things must be put together in the way they were
designed to, if they are to perform optimally.
The same applies to Bang & Olufsen's Beolink. In theory, Bang & Olufsen's
products may be connected in thousands of different ways. Since it would be
totally impossible to have an overview of just a fraction of this multitude of
connection possibilities, Bang & Olufsen has selected the most attractive
combinations. These selected combinations are called recommended setups.
The recommended setups are the ones which are focused on in connection with
product development and service.
When a Beolink system is configured it is therefore very important that this is
done in accordance with the recommended setups.
If the recommended setups are not followed, the result may easily be the same as
with the gearbox with too many or too few gearwheels. Bang & Olufsen services
the recommended setups ONLY.
One of the conditions for the recommended
setups to perform optimally is that the products included in the setup "know" in
what kind of environment they are placed. The actual option programming is
executed by pressing a certain sequence of keys on the terminal.
For the Beo4 terminal the key sequence is the following:
Press and hold
Press to access
the setup functions. The Beo4 display reads [OPTION?] - let go of both
Press to access
Press to display:
V.OPT (BeoVision) or A.OPT (BeoMaster/BeoSound) or L.OPT (link room
Key in the number
of the appropriate Option (e.g. 1)
Beolink 1000 remote control terminal the following key sequence is used:
The digit sequence to be used depends on the
No IR reception
Two IR-receivers in the same
One IR receiver in the main
Link room product connected to
one or two main room products in the same room
Two IR receivers in the same
One IR eye in the link room
This applies to most setups that they are
delivered with the correct Option setting from the factory and they are
therefore 'ready for use'.
However, in some situations products may have
to be reinstalled (e.g. in a connection in a house that has been rebuilt). The
correct option is therefore indicated in ALL illustrations, even those which are
'ready to use' from the factory.
