BOSSCOM DAB/FM is equipped with a 7 pin DIN Data Link cable for connection to Bang & Olufsen equipment. Thus
an adaptor cable is required for connection to equipment not having a DIN input socket. See below examples and the
Option Programming section page 8.
®Powmascables
®Powmascables
Getting Started
This BOSSCOM DAB/FM tuner has been designed for operation in a Bang & Olufsen remote control system allowing
full control with a Bang & Olufsen remote control terminal either directly or via connection to Bang & Olufsen
equipment.
Thus the tuner is Beolink compatible.
Direct Mode or CableLink Mode
The BOSSCOM DAB/FM tuner is connected to Bang & Olufsen equipment via the 7-pin DIN cable with or without
adaptor, and through option programming it may be controlled as follows:
1.
Via the tuner’s built in IR-receiver, ”Direct Mode”
Direct Mode is used when connection to an input with control data is not possible.
2.
Via the cable connected Bang & Olufsen equipment, ”CableLink Mode”
CableLink Mode is used only when connection to an input with control data is possible.
See page 8 for Option Programming.
Factory Settings
The factory setting is for “Direct Mode” and manual power control.
The factory setting for input socket and selected source is:
Remote control
Beo4, Beo5 or Beo6
Beolink 1000
Source
N.MUSIC, A.MEM2 or TAPE2
SHIFT A.TAPE
If the DAB/FM tuner is connected to a different input, the option should be programmed accordingly.

Installation
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
Connect power supply.
Connect external antenna if required.
Turn the power switch on, located on the cabinet.
Select option and complete option programming, if required.
Connect the tuner to the correct input socket on the Bang & Olufsen equipment.
Select the corresponding source on the remote control terminal.
Turn on the tuner manually, if it is not in the automatic power up mode.
Select and program your favorite stations.
Connection to Bang & Olufsen Equipment
This BOSSCOM DAB/FM tuner may be connected to any Bang & Olufsen BeoSound, BeoCenter, BeoMaster,
BeoSystem or BeoVision TV and controlled with a Bang & Olufsen remote control terminal, but it may also be
connected to equipment of any other brand and still be controlled with the Bang & Olufsen remote control terminal.
Through the years Bang & Olufsen equipment has had input sockets added, removed and renamed. A newer Bang &
Olufsen remote control has the button N.MUSIC, which is identical to SHIFT A.TAPE or A.TAPE2 on older remotes.
Below tables are showing available input sockets and their designation on various Bang & Olufsen equipment. The
tables below also show the source that has to be selected to open a given input.
Thus with identified Bang & Olufsen equipment and the selected input socket the required option for the tuner to be
operable may be determined. Some input sockets allow for the CableLink option to be selected, whereas most of the
newer audio equipment requires the Direct Mode option to be used.
The Direct Mode Option:
The tuner is controlled directly with the Bang & Olufsen remote control terminal.
Control from a linkroom is not possible, although the tuner may be listened to there.
The CableLink Option:
The tuner is controlled with the Bang & Olufsen remote control terminal through the connected Bang & Olufsen
equipment sending control data via the connection cable. The tuner may be controlled from any linkroom too.
CableLink
Direct Mode
The CableLink option allows for the tuner to be listened
to and controlled from any linkroom.
The Direct Mode option allows for the tuner to be listened to
but not controlled from any linkroom. The Direct Mode
option works in any Bang & Olufsen set up, but the tuner’s IR
receiver is not plasma safe.

Antenna Connection
BOSSCOM DAB/FM tuner may be connected to any antenna designed for FM and the DAB reception, if the supplied
one is not sufficient.
o

o
If the FM signal strength is not sufficient the reception will be noisy.
If the DAB signal strength is not sufficient the reception is varying from
disturbing ”bubbles” to complete quietness.
If no signal is received the display indicates N/A.
Automatic Power Up and Down
As default factory setting the tuner is manually powered up and down with the
button. As the display is
automatically dimmed 10 seconds after any operation, powering the tuner down is not a strict requirement.
If automatic powering up and down with the source selection is desired, programming a specific option allows for
that.

Important Info about the Automatic Power Mode
When the automatic power option has been set, the tuner turns on and off automatically with the source selection.
But if the tuner’s clock has not been set, automatic power up and down is NOT possible.
The clock is automatically set 10-30 seconds after power has been applied to the tuner, provided a DAB station has
been received. Thus the automatic power option cannot be used if the tuner is switched off the mains regularly.

Option Programming
Option programming is required only when installing the tuner. The programming is performed with a Bang &
Olufsen remote control terminal by initiating a 5 button sequence within 8 seconds after powering up the tuner.
When powering up the tuner the red control LED flashes for 8 seconds, and the programming has to be carried out
before the control LED stops flashing. When entering a button the timeout is prolonged with another 8 seconds.
If not successful the operation may be repeated. Programming starts by pressing
