We also have existing Sony TV IP control that we have tested through their 2012 models.
We receive our first 2013 test unit on Tuesday. If they have real power control via IP in this year’s models, we should know soon. We have reason to believe there is a chance it has been added actually. If so, it will apply to the X900A, W900A, W802A, and W650A models. The chance that any of the RXXX models have power IP control is almost nil, but whatever changes we make to the rest of the IP control for Sony TVs will likely apply to the RXXX series as well minus power control. We should be updating the compatibility listings with the results and library updates within a week or so.
It’s possible the R550 could work somewhat, but we do not list it as all the information we have indicates it either is completely incapable of IP control or at the very least does not support power IP control.
hi, i noticed that you haven’t added the compatible models yet. therefore i’d like to make sure (before i go ahead and buy the TV) you plan to support KDL-46W905A (it’s a Swedish (perhaps EU??) model). i know it works with IP, including Wake on Lan as i’ve tested it in the store with the Sony app, but wanted to make sure it will be supported in roomie remote as well? regards, jonas
Just bought a new Sony 42″ led for the bedroom, I bought a sony because of the IP power on feature, I think I have tried everything to get it to work.
Connected to network and controlled by rooming for everything including power off, info feed to room Chanel changes ect BUT no power on.
I installed the Sony sideview app and paired the ipad again( new id created for the app) and sideview was able to turn the TV on, but it asked me first / displayed a message “connecting”
Roomie also showers the device as “matching”
Home network settings are all on as are reindeer settings.
Please help, I can’t bare using normal remotes any longer
This is the kind of thing that should just go directly to support as it’s a simple question we get a lot and trivial to resolve, but in the interest of updating this thread and pushing out the information so that future users can find it more easily, here is the Wake on LAN FAQ that shows the command you need to add for Wake on LAN devices:
