Introduction
The Beo6 remote control is customised to give easy access to the Bang &
Olufsen products in your home.
When you purchase a Beo6, your Bang & Olufsen retailer configures it to
match your individual product setup.
O
ST
AY
BA
CK
If you change your product setup, for example if you purchase a new
product, always have your Bang & Olufsen retailer reconfigure your Beo6
remote control to enable support of the new functions and features.
PL
It also means that if new functions and features, such as 2-way communication,
become available in your Bang & Olufsen products, the Beo6 must be
reconfigured by your retailer to support these new functions and features.
P
This allows for a personal design for each user and ensures that all buttons
in your Beo6 are relevant to your specific setup.
Beo6 is fully compatible with Beo5. This means
that if a User’s guide explains operation with
the Beo5 remote control, you can use the
Beo6 remote in exactly the same way.

All the buttons in your customised Beo6 are
explained in the personal Beo6 glossary.
With your remote control, you receive a brief Getting Started explaining
the basic functions of the remote control. This Guide provides further
information about the remote control, such as moving buttons or
reassigning channel numbers to your channel logos. The Guide is kept up
to date if new features and functions are introduced in the Beo6. However,
Beo6 support of such updates depends on the configuration of the
remote control.
As an additional help to the Guides, a personal Beo6 button overview and
a matching glossary are created for you every time your Bang & Olufsen
retailer customises your Beo6 for you in the store.
The button overview provides you with a ‘road map’ to your Beo6 and
allows you to quickly find the button or function you need.
In the personal Beo6 glossary, you can find explanations to all the buttons
available in your specific setup.
If your configuration is changed, you can get a new Beo6 button overview
and glossary that matches your new setup.

Using Beo6
Before you start using your remote
control for the very first time, it
must be charged. Refer to page 7
for information about how to
charge your remote control.
Once a source is selected, operation is
carried out by pressing buttons on the
LivingRoom
screen or via the Beo6 ball – for example
to adjust volume, step through tracks or
channels and pause playback.
TV
DVD
When fully charged, your remote
control is ready for use.
To activate the Beo6 display, just
pick up your remote control or
touch the screen lightly, and the
display lights up. Then select a
button by a press on the screen.

Operating non-Bang & Olufsen products
If your Bang & Olufsen video product
is equipped with a Peripheral Unit
Controller, you can connect supported
non-Bang & Olufsen products such
as set-top boxes to it – and still
operate it with your remote control.
Bang & Olufsen support the most
common set-top boxes in all
markets. Simply have your retailer
program your Beo6 to the set-top
box that you have, and its remote
control buttons will appear in the
Beo6 display.
Other selected non-Bang & Olufsen
products such as lights, curtains and

Using the charger
Beo6 is a battery powered remote
control that requires regular
charging like a cordless phone.
The customised Beo6 charger is
used for this purpose.
To make sure that your remote
control is fully charged at all times,
we recommend that you place it in
the charger whenever it is not in use.
If you are unable to switch on the
remote control when you press and
hold the centre button, it needs to
be recharged.
If the remote control is completely
discharged, place it in the charger
shortly and it will have sufficient
capacity for you to switch on the
TV or radio. Then leave it to charge
while you watch or listen.
Place the remote control correctly in the
charger. To be fully charged, Beo6 must
Recharge battery
charge for four hours.
When fully charged, the battery will
have enough capacity for approximately
one week of standby time or two to four
hours of intensive use.
A text in the display indicates when it is
time to recharge your remote control.
‘Recharge Battery’ is indicated in the display
title when the battery needs charging.
Using 2-way communication reduces the
battery run time. Note that if the remote
control needs charging, problems with the
wireless communication may arise.

Power consumption
Beo6 consumes power when switched on, in
particular when the backlight is lit. Therefore
your Beo6 will slowly power down when it is
not in use:
– After 10 seconds, the backlight is dimmed
– After 30 seconds, Beo6 will go into
standby mode and display a black screen

Wireless setup
When configured for it, the Beo6
remote control is able to connect to
a wireless network. This enables
2-way communication with the
products, the Beo6 controls.
Connection can take place in
different ways depending on your
wireless network. Bang & Olufsen
recommends specific Network Link
access points. Contact your retailer
for more information.
It is important that you are in close
proximity to the access point you
are connecting the Beo6 to, when
making the setup.
Connections must be made to all
access points in your wireless
system.
Note that only some Bang &
Olufsen products support 2-way
communication. See the Guides
enclosed with the products for
information about the functions
and their operation.
