So I'm venturing into RS232 control after years of just doing plain old IR control.

First project will be a system including an Aventage RX-A2020 and BD-A1020. I've found plenty of info to get me started on controlling the receiver via RS232, but haven't found much on the bluray player.

I know that IP control is possible (at least with the receiver), but I'm not interested in going that route just yet.

The questions I have now are:

1) Does the BD-A1020 need a null modem adapter when using 232 out of a XP6 processor? I know the receiver needs it, not sure about the BD?

2) I'm planning on 1-way RS232 with the Bluray player, but out of curiousity can you do 2-way with the BD-A1020? If so, what does it give you?

3) The RTI master232 library has pre-defined RS232 codes for a Yamaha BD-S2900 Bluray player. Will these same codes work with the BD-A1020?

4) Any other recommendations or gotcha's that would be helpful to know?

TIA,

OK, so I'm up and running RS232 on both the receiver and BD player. Working well, just got one problem:

The Bluray player won't turn on via RS232. Once it is actually on (via front panel or IR via factory remote), all other commands work fine. Navigation, arrow keys, etc. Even power off works fine via RS232.

Just can't get power on. Here is the hex string I am passing for power on:

\x0207CF60\x03

I've double checked my port settings, making sure I'm sending the command out the correct port, made sure Network Control is turned on in BD settings (does that matter for RS232? Or only IP control?).

Going back Monday to troubleshoot some more. Any thoughts on what to look at?

Just out of interest how did you get it all sorted? I had the exact issue as you last week: control of everything including power off, just nothing when attempting to power on. Puzzling...
If you do remember how you got it all sorted and would care to share that with me it would be muchos appreciated!

Why not just use the two-way driver even if one-way and set the protocol to serial ?

Are you able to share how you sorted out powering BDA1020 via rs232. I have a problem where it accepts all commands but power on

Sounds like a standard 'issue' I've seen with the averages.

Do you have 'network control' set to on in the menu of the bluray. The two way driver is useless without the network control or network standby set to on.
