I have older Sony CDP-C545 CD player with remote rm-D545. Remote has no IR button on/off and player has a on/off switch you push in to activate. Any way short of getting a power plug IR switch to send an IR on/off to this player?

Have you tried using the Discretes for this player? These MIGHT work: [Link: remotecentral.com]

If you can please post the IR code for the On/Off button. It would help us alot more. People like Johnsfine can tell the kind of protocal and maybe help you a lot more through that.

Thanks for the reply Ali, I'll try the link but so far I have not found discrete on/off codes for this player ... I'm afraid that it's hard on/off switch can't be bypassed with an IR code ... but if I find a solution I'll post it here.

Here's one idea from the FAQ page:

If you had just searched the site you would have found the CCF below with the codes in it =].

I'm a bit skeptical. The players I've seen with mechanical power switches do not respond to any Power IR commands at all. I mean not just a push button power switch, but one that you push and it stays in, then you push again and it comes back out.

I don't understand why these were ever made, but it's probably another example of a manufacturer not having a clue how remote control systems should be constructed for use in the real AV world.

The workaround is to leave it on all the time and be sure you have a CD STOP command in your power-down macro. In fact, it would be good to have a CD STOP command in every other source macro just to be sure you don't wear the thing out.

Imagine the stupidity of a 300-disc player in PLAY that can't be turned off by remote! When the unit's stopped, the motors turn off and so don't wear out, but if a player like that is left in PLAY, it can go for more than a week!
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

No, I'm not. Wait, yes I am...the key is that I usually think I'm right and I speak or write with authority. And examples. No, wait, I'm not quite sure it's that....

Either way, thanks for the compliment but be sure anything I say passes the stink test, which is just a more graphic way of saying a reality test. I've been doing a lot of typos since my fingers have been numb and I don't want anybody getting shocked to death because I wrote something and they didn't realize it was BS!

Somewhere I read a quote like "Be careful when you read health books: you might die of a typo!"

I've never seen a Sony non-jukebox CD player with mechanical power switch that responded to any sort of remote power codes. I think only the jukebox models do.

If you really want to turn it off at times, look into a switched outlet/module (X-10 or other), or perhaps your receiver has a switched outlet you can use...

I think sony assumes that you are going to plug them into a switched outlet on a receiver anyways.

I leave them on and usually don't use the switched outlet. The power down macro does have a few Sony-CD-Stop commands. Only time I really have this is with the 5 disc changer. But I have beaten sales into not selling those and going to some sort of server. Even if its as lame as an ipod on a table.

I need to put in a DLO to see if it is something that makes customers happy. Ipods on the wall that you have to get up to select a song... that is just a joke! But sales thinks its OK because they used to get a real nice spif to sell them.
