RS-232 commands for a Sony TV connected to a DMP

Post by Guest » Wed Jul 14, 2010 9:30 am

Hi, Has anyone successfully sent an RS-232 command from a DMP to turn a SONY LCD TV 32" or 40" on or off? I have created the following commands in System Tasks: Sony TV On :Name : Sony Screen OnDescription: Turn Sony Display OnRequest Type: SetRequest: rs232.tx_hex=8C 00 00 02 01 8F (tried with spaces and without spaces between values) I also tried Request: rs232.tx_hex=8C 00 00 02 01 8F 0D (0D Hex for carriage return) unsuccessfully. Sony TV Off : Name : Sony Screen OffDescription: Turn Sony Display OffRequest Type: SetRequest: rs232.tx_hex=8C 00 00 02 00 8E I can confirm that the same command " rs232.tx_hex=" is set for the Panasonic Screens (hex value is different as below) and the screens do turn on and off successfully. Panasonic TV On:Name : Panasonic Screen OnDescription: Turn Panasonic Display OnRequest Type: Setrs232.tx_hex=02504f4e03 Panasonic TV Off:Name : Panasonic Screen OffDescription: Turn Panasonic Display OffRequest Type: Setrs232.tx_hex=02504f4603 When I connect the same RS-232 cable used between the DMP and Sony TV to my laptop and to the Sony LCD TV and run a sendhex.exe command 8C 00 00 02 00 8E the TV does turn off, 8C 00 00 02 01 8F does turn the TV on. The sendhex.exe was provided by Sony and I can see the underlying code but apparently all it does is send the hex value entered down the RS-232 cable. Thank you

Linda, My apologies, but: * What versions of firmware are you running on the DMP (ie. 5.1, 5.2)? * What model of DMP? * What is the model# of the Sony TV? thank you, T.

Linda, Sorry for the delay. It does appear that the code strings are correct and you have tested as you mentioned. Please configure two custom Advance Tasks inthe DMM-Digital Signs Module----------------------------------------------------------------------Sony (Turn ON)Setrs232.tx_hex=8c000002018f  Sony (Turn OFF)Setrs232.tx_hex=8c000002008e  *  Once configured please attach the Sony LCD to a DMP and test the strings above. Also, you may want to try an Enquiry also to see if any is returned: Sony (POWER Enquiry)Getrs232.tx_hex=830000ffff81   Please try and let me know what your results are.. Thanks T.

I have had the same experience as Linda. I am running DMS 5.2 and trying to use Custom Advanced Tasks to turn my Sony FWD-40LX2 monitor on/off. Like LInda, I have been trying the following without success. Sony (Turn ON)Setrs232.tx_hex=8c000002018f Sony (Turn  OFF)Setrs232.tx_hex=8c000002008e   I have also had no success with the following enquiry command. I get a null response. Sony  (POWER Enquiry)Getrs232.tx_hex=830000ffff81  Any help you can provide is much appreciated. Jeff
