Sony XBR-70x850b 4k TV - Control Options?

roognationroognation Junior MemberPosts: 138
Well, we've downloaded the xdd file (from amx.com) and setup the code to use it...and we get in to the menu of the TV to apply the necessary settings...and they do not exist! From page2 of the included PDF:
SETUP BRAVIA TV
1. Set up network connections
 [Settings] -> [Network] -> [Network Set-up]
2. Enable Simple IP Control
 [Settings] -> [Network] -> [Home Network Setup] -> [IP Control] -> [Simple IP Control] -> [On]
We've set the IP address and it shows up on a network scan, so we know that worked, but the menu does not allow us to go to a setting called SIMPLE IP CONTROL. When the module tries to connect:
Line     40 (15:03:11)::  SocketConnection<192.168.1.83,20060>Thread<SocketConnection<192.168.1.83,20060>> createSocket: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
Line     41 (15:03:15)::  SocketConnection<192.168.0.1,20060>Thread<SocketConnection<192.168.0.1,20060>> createSocket: java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out
Line     42 (15:03:16)::  DDD.handleTimerEvent: dpd didn't exist
Line     43 (15:03:26)::  SocketConnection<192.168.1.83,20060>Thread<SocketConnection<192.168.1.83,20060>> createSocket: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
Anyone worked with this monster before? We have turned on the serial port in the TV menu, but have not been able to make anything work on that side, either (protocol suggested by AMX):
send_string dvDisplay01a, "'*SEPOWR################', $0a"
begets (at various baud rates, of course slightly different)
String To [5001:6:10]-[*SEPOWR################$0A]
String From [5001:6:10]-[$00$E0$00$00$00$E0$E0$00$E0$00$00$00$E0$E0]
String From [5001:6:10]-[$00$E0$00$00$00$E0$E0]

Any help?

    Update 1

    New firmware:


    Cycling power after firmware update IS REQUIRED. Yes, it took a little frustration to figure this out.

    And now, the TV and module are doing something, but nothing useful; Why do I keep hoping that IP control will work right out of the box??! Here is DEBUG-4 output (and my vdv event command to device 0 output, too):

    Hopefully I will hear more from AMX on Monday...unless someone would like to shed some light

    Thanks for looking

    I'll be dealing with some of these soon so I'm curious to see what happens. I have a whole house filled with various Sony TVs and a couple are these in an upcoming project. Not looking forward to trying to get these to do what they are told.

    As far as I know you have to set the Bravia TV into HOTEL/PRO mode to get the option for Simple IP Control to be able to set to ON in settings menu. This is normally done by pressing some special keys on the IR remote. I can´t remember this at the moment but I will look if I can find it.

    But I already sucessfully used the SSIP protocol to control a Sony FWD60W600P professional display.

    Interesting is that your power command differs from what I sucessfully used:
    //setPowerStatus	Power On
    "$2A,$53,'CPOWR0000000000000001',$0A"
    
    //setPowerStatus	Power Off
    "$2A,$53,'CPOWR0000000000000000',$0A"
    

    regards,

    We're still Waiting on AMX

    There was no setting of hotel mode on this unit; we had to let the TV do it's automatic firmware update, then we were required to POWER CYCLE the TV before the firmware "took." Of course, this was not documented anywhere.

    Slight update: the module is talking to the TV, but not very well. AMX is still researching... As you can see, there is a lot of chatter, but the module is still not communicating properly.

    Never used IP, but serial is solid on the 850B series:

    'SET BAUD 9600,N,8,1'
    "$8C,$00,$01,$02,$01,$90" //POWER STANDBY ENABLE
    "$83,$00,$00,$FF,$FF,$81" //POWER QUERY
    "$8C,$00,$00,$02,$01,$8F" //POWER ON
    "$8C,$00,$00,$02,$00,$8E" //POWER OFF
    "$8C,$00,$02,$03,$04,$02,$97" //HDMI 2

    Serial!?

    Oh, cool. Thanks for that. The RS232 port on this set it an 1/8 inch mini...I hate to make an assumption, so electrically, on the TV: which is TX, RX, and GND?

    Do you have other serial commands for HDMI1 or HDMI3? Is there a document that goes in to more detail? Perhaps some discussion on feedback?

    Thanks again!

    Control doc


    http://www.integrationpros.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=4467&stc=1&d=1374784002

    Before using, must turn set on manually and send the 'POWER STANDBY ENABLE' command.
  • roognationroognation Junior Member Posts: 138
    Wow.

    PHSJason: That works great. Thanks for the protocol. Now to whip up a proper module...

    Note: the link to integration pros did not work.

    Update

    I will say that the TV does have a little weirdness
    1. Upon bootup, we needed to wait 11 seconds before issuing an input command
    2. During the warmup cycle; sending input commands resulted in no response

    That's neither unusual or bad. I've seen *IR* devices that needed as long as 15-20 seconds to respond to a command after power on. It's not so common anymore, but I typically have to give a TV at least 10 seconds. To minimize the impact on what the end-user sees, I'll often switch to the most commonly used input on the power off, so when it comes back on, it's more likely not to need an input change and the customer sees their material as soon as it lights up.

    I just did my first Sony XBR, an XBR-65X810C. I've got a batch of 55's coming up next. I chatted, then emailed, and then made multiple calls to Sony asking for the IP and/or RS232 control docs. Lost count of how many times I got told they couldn't help me and call someone else, and/or there was no IP control for these TVs. I finally got someone to tell me they could transfer me to someone who could give me the RS232 docs. I actually waited on hold for well over an hour (and found almost everything I was looking for here and elsewhere in the meantime), but much to my surprise someone eventually picked up the line. When he said he could send me the RS232 docs, I asked him if there were IP control docs too and he says, "Yeah, I can send those too."

    The stupidest thing is getting into the menu to set the setting. Smart TVs have gotten too smart for me! After that, it was a piece of cake. The actual command structure begs the question, "is that really necessary?" but whatevs, it works and works consistently.

    The docs say something about dropping inactive connections after 30 seconds but I have not seen it drop a connection at all, yet. I left a manual telnet session open for several hours and it never dropped, I've got my auto-poll running in code every 2 minutes, there's no lag in response or connection issue.

    Attached is the IP control doc they gave me in case someone else comes looking for it.
