Remotely powering up an EU model STR-DN1080?
Hi @grolschie ,
I have an EU model and for me it seems both wol and network standby seems working when set via the API. Network standby really would be a nice feature if it wouldn't consume such a lot of power... Too bad ️
Best regards, Vincent
@Vincent-Vanbroekhoven very interesting. Thanks for that info.
What did you use to send the Wake On LAN packet to wake up the receiver? Other people have reported that it shows as being enabled, but doesn't wake up. Are you using the latest firmware? Maybe firmware is the difference. I wonder, it's firmware country-specific, or region specific?
The good news is, with Network Standby disabled, but Wake On LAN (aka Remote Start) enabled, it uses very little power. But does take longer to wake up.
@grolschie I've tried with Depicus tool and with my loxone domotics system. Both succeed to wake up the receiver after enabling wol via the API. I'm indeed on the latest firmware.. I'm also thinking of buying a smart plug to monitor the power consumption
@Vincent-Vanbroekhoven Thanks for that. Weird that some EU folk cannot get WOL to work.
Hi, I have great news guys, after a few days dealing with this issue (enabling Network standby: ON for European devices) I found the solution
This is what you need to do:
Download MyAv app on an Android device.
Link your STR-DN1080
Go to Settings/Advance settings
Activate the option "Power this device up when MyAV starts (WOL)"
It’s working now, can’t believe it!
This is awesome as I was quite disappointed but now I have my AV fully working as desired.
Thanks to a random guy who shared this info on another forum. You made my day!
Please let me know if it works for you too.
I can wake up my AV from Spotify when streaming starts while it is in standby, I hope this helps to all the Sony fans
@juanjo-lopez Works like a charm! You're the random guy to me and fixed a issue that bothered me for quite some time!
I'm not 100% sure how but I but currently have WoL working for both EU and US version of str-dn1080...
with quickStartMode: off and wolMode: on on both (haven't tested the power consumption so I don't know if EU is truly "off", but I can't connect to the api before sending the WoL on ether and the devices looks powerd off ).
I'm currently using a mac with the command
wakeonlan -i 255.255.255.255 -p9 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
where XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is the mac address to the wi-fi dont have any eth connected for the moment to any device.
On both devices the display turns on and looks redy to use, but on the US version I can query any function directly (sony music center app also works) but on the EU model I have to first send a setPowerStatus to "active" before I can send any other message (and the sony music center app don't work).
It also takes longer that expected some times (up to 20 sec) and I also have to send the WoL multiple times some times, from then I have sent the WoL before the device starts to turn on. So currently I running a loop sending WoL untill the API response then send a setPowerStatus "active", and it looks like it works.
Will test some more but this is the current status.
@david, very interesting discovery. Thanks. This may explain why it works for some and not others.
@marky hahahaha, thanks man! I’m glad it worked for you too!! Have a good one

@juanjo-lopez made an account just to sat thanks! This not waking-up issue had my super annoyed and I have fixed it now with your tip! Awesome! Thanks Juanjo/'random guy'
@cjb Is Network Standby still working for you after the most recent firmware update?
I have had one report so far that it doesn't.
EDIT: False alarm perhaps. No other reports of failure. And one user confirms it's still working with EU models after the update.
@david is there a way via the API to detect the region of the AVR please? Trying to anticipate problems due to the latest firmware release.
@grolschie Sorry don't know of anyway of detecting the region via the API.
@david thank you anyway.
