Two Oppos...only one power code?
I have two Oppo players (one DVD (DV-981) and a Blu-ray (BDP-93)) each selected separately for my recipes and controls. They each work fine with their separate, real-world remotes, but the NEEO "ON" turns on both in each case, though OFF does not turn them both off all the time.
I know I had to set the player remotes, specifically not interfere with one another, but I don't see how to do that with the NEEO. Am I missing something obvious? Anyone else running into this or solve it?
I have the same issue, namely two Oppo Blu ray players connected to two different AV receivers in a tall Atlantic Technology rack. The rack is full of AV components that service all 3 zones in the 2-story house.
The system is controlled by two Universal Remote controls (i.e. by the "Universal Remote" company). Just like the NEEO, the Universal Remote system is composed of one or more handheld remote controls and one or more base units. In my case there are 2 handheld remotes and 3 base units.
Each base unit has 4 individually addressable IR outputs. With 3 base units, I can control 12 devices individually. A wire connects each output to an IR "eye". Each Blu ray player has a dedicated IR eye taped to the front panel.
So if I want to access Oppo #1, the handheld remote communicates with Output #1 of Base #1. If I want to access Oppo #2, the handheld remote communicates with Output #2 of Base #1. Hence, each Oppo is individually addressed and therefore individually controlled.
However, because the NEEO operates with an IR blaster (instead of individual IR eyes), it means that IR signals transmitted by the base are received by all devices in the AV rack, so both Oppos turn on and off together.
This isn't a big deal at the moment because we rarely watch Blu rays on two screens at the same time, but it can be a problem if, for instance, I used two identical AV receivers. At the moment, I am using a Marantz pre/pro for Zones 1 and 2, and a Yamaha Aventage receiver for Zone 3.
Casey We do understand the limits you are running into. With the current version of NEEO, we will not have the possibility to address as many IR eyes, but I think we'll be able to work around that by using more and more IP and Bluetooth drivers for devices.
Harold Gross I will have the device driver team check on that issue, I think there are good chances that this can be fixed again.
This should be fixed again. The new data will appear around 7PM CET. Please update your device according to this guide. Thanks!
