Unless you intend to create your own driver/module...it would help to know what your control system is.

Sony Bravia IP driver from RTI is available- but haven’t personally used it. Have migrated away from RTI. What we do now for C4 at least is set a static addy and set a “preshare key”. A while back an update defaulted the key to off, thus breaking control. Additionally- occasional android errors have popped up- cache overflow etc... Have 3 setups controlled via WiFi and work perfectly (knocks on wood) though this is frowned upon.

I’ve used it. Works fine. Follow the info in the get info file that comes with the driver.

Look at the Get Info page, look at the sample file that comes with it for pairing the processor with the TV, using it on many jobs to great success.

DO NOT USE WIFI. Anytime the power goes off, when it comes back on, the TV's will not power on via IP if they are controlled via IP. It will work if hardwired though. In Cincy we have outages probably once a month, so WiFi for IP control doesn't work for us. Also, you cannot use MAC Address reservations either. when the TV is in standby for a long period of time, it will lose its IP address and wont ping the router for one until it is turned on.

They key is to hardwire it, set the IP in the TV as static, turn on remote start, and Simple IP Control. If you do these things, it will work flawlessly.

I have one that has been on wifi with the C4 driver, and a DHCP reservation for going on 3 years now. I know they have had more than a few power outages. No problems in that time span thus far. :)

I wonder if it takes a while after an outage to get an IP address. I now that immediately after an outage or reset, the wifi ones will not turn on via IP. I bet after the power returns to the unit, it eventually does some silent bootup, gets its IP address, then it all falls into place.

I'm not so sure...we tried one on Wifi last year and it stopped responding after a power out and was still unresponsive when we attended as arranged two days later. Power had been restored for 48+ hours at this stage. We had to disable the WiFi and re-enable to get it working again.

Control disappeared as soon as we tested dropping and restoring power again so we ended up going IR.
What do you mean you wanted it on the other wall - couldn't you have mentioned this when we prewired?

I have not had a single issue with the ones that were hardwired to the network

What dose the simple IP control tick box enable exactly, ive had a 9405 Sony tv about 12 months old working in IP control without be simple IP enabled, but with all other IP control settings enabled, always wondered what simple IP dose
