Remotely powering up an EU model STR-DN1080?
@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.
