Remotely powering up an EU model STR-DN1080?
@juanjo-lopez Hi. It's basically what my app 'StrRemote Pro' does. However, even though MyAV calls it "WOL", it's not. It's actually Network Standby.
@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.

@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.

Old to the post, new to the game here
I’ve looked through these discussions here - which in terms of programming goes over my head. However, on the EU model, I have found a super easy way to start the receiver via “Zone Control” (Spotify, possibly Chrome cast too).
It may not be what the thread creator asked for as I haven’t read it all here, but here we go:
Main menu/ Zone Controls/
Zone2 Power: On
Zone2 Input: Music Service List
On the display it will in standby mode now say:
For now, it doesn’t seem to be running hot as the other standby’s - and I don’t know how much power it draws. However, it works. Typical Sony to complicate things like this,..
Let me know if I’m way off on this one or if this is one of the solutions which drew immensely of power,..?
