You can extend your system into a
fully equipped Home Theatre by
connecting four Bang & Olufsen
loudspeakers and a BeoLab 2
subwoofer*.
When you switch on one of the
sources in BeoSystem 1, speakers in
a surround sound system can be cut
in or out, depending on what kind of
sound suits the source you are using.
BeoSystem 1 may switch on a
speaker combination automatically.
This happens if a broadcasted
programme contains information
about the number of speakers to be
switched on. However, you are still
free to choose the speaker
combination you prefer.
With Beo4, you can choose the
picture format you prefer for movie
viewing, and switch between two
connected screens.
Select speakers for movie sound
You can select the speaker combination that
suits the source you are using, provided that
the various sound modes are available in your

Make the picture fill out the screen
Switch between two screens
BeoSystem 1 always ensures you the best
possible picture. It automatically adapts the
picture so that it fills out as much of the
screen as possible. However, you can still
choose the format you prefer. When you
select a format yourself, the automatic
format selection is deactivated.
If you have connected two screens to
BeoSystem 1 at the same time, such as a
plasma screen and a projector screen for
Home Theatre use, you can switch between
these at any time by selecting FORMAT 0 on
Beo4.

selected screen.
FORMAT 1… For standard TV pictures. Two
variations are available: 15:9 and Panoramic
view (for the largest picture).
FORMAT 2… For letter-box pictures. When you
select FORMAT 2, the picture is automatically
adjusted vertically. This ensures that channel
names or subtitles – if these appear in the
broadcasted picture – can be seen.
FORMAT 3… For genuine 16:9 wide-screen
pictures. FORMAT 3 is usually selected
automatically. If this is not the case, you can
select it yourself.
If you have a home automation system connected,
the screen, lights and curtains can be equally
adjusted when you choose FORMAT 0 and switch
to the Home Theatre setup. For information about
how to connect BeoSystem 1 to a home automation
system, refer to the chapter ‘Connect a screen to
BeoSystem 1’ on page 42.
Teletext
12
If you select a channel and the
broadcaster offers a teletext service,
BeoSystem 1 gives you access to
teletext pages and any subpages
linked to the pages.
To make your favourite teletext pages
appear first when you bring up
teletext, store them as memory
pages.
When you store the teletext subtitles
page as memory page number four,
you can activate subtitles for that
particular channel automatically.
NOTE! If BeoSystem 1 is linked via a Master Link
cable to another television, stored memory pages
are not shared among these televisions. Memory
pages must be stored on each television.

Your Beo4 remote control gives you
access to a dual-screen function for
viewing two video sources at the
same time. For example, you can
view a videotape playback and a TV
programme at the same time,
provided that the selected sources
are available in your system.
While watching a programme or
recording, you can divide the screen
between the current programme or
recording (picture A in the second
illustration) and a new programme or
recording (picture B). You can also
swap the two pictures at any time.
The sound always follows picture A.
Volume adjustment with Beo4 always
affects picture A, while other Beo4
operations, such as selecting
channels, affect picture B. Choosing
a new source cancels dual-screen
viewing.
*In order to display P-IN-P or P-V.AUX on Beo4,
you must add them to the Beo4 list of functions.

example, if you want to see the latest
news headlines while watching TV.
If your teletext broadcaster offers a

The sound system is an integrated

A given sound system signal may
automatically switch on the speaker
combination considered optimal for

Set the time and date
BeoSystem 1 has a built-in 24-hour
clock.
When you preset BeoSystem 1 to
switch itself on or off at a particular
time, or when you preset a timed
recording of a programme on a
connected BeoCord V 8000 video
tape recorder, the clock ensures that
these features are switched on and
off at the right times.
The simplest way to set the clock is
to synchronise it with a tuned TV
channel’s teletext service via the
Clock menu. If you choose to
synchronise the clock, this is done
with the teletext service offered by
the TV channel you are currently
watching. If a teletext service is not
available, you can set the clock
manually.
37
Before synchronising the clock with a tuned
channel, make sure that the channel you are
watching offers a teletext service.
