For those of you using the new Elite receivers that require the "power on" to be sent twice to turn the unit on (SC-07 in my case), how much of a delay do you use in between the two on commands. I am having problems getting this receiver to be consistent turning on. I started with a .1 second delay and that didn't work so I went to a 1 second delay and that worked once or twice in a row then would not work again until I would manually turn the unit on and off, then would work another time or two and I would have to turn it on and off again.

Has anyone else ran into this? It seems like a very strange problem to me.

This is being controlled through a Crestron AES by the way.

Try keeping zone 3 on, assuming you arent using it for anything else. Pio AVR's dont respond even to a poll request - it needs to turn on first, even on a room 2 or 3.

"Pio AVR's dont respond even to a poll request - it needs to turn on first, even on a room 2 or 3."

This years' SC-07 and SC-05 use an improved 232 circuit that works the way it should. One command to wake the port (it doesn't turn on the Main Zone - FINALLY) and another command to actually turn on the Zone you need.

Diesel, I swear I have not heard this complaint. One of these days the module will be finished for the SC-07.

Yeah, very strange but it seems everything on this job was giving me fits. I'm sure it's because it's an involved system an hour away or everything would have worked perfectly the first time:) I contacted Pioneer and they said ideally the receiver is looking for a 100ms delay between the commands....but when I tried that I received no response from the unit at all.
