I posted the other day about my P5 not getting rid of pops and cracks through my speakers and received some good advice that mostly will involve bring in an electrician. Thank you.
Further I have noticed that touching my TV remote volume instantly turns off the P5. However everything attached to it still works in that everything is powered. I read the manual and checked setup and all zones are set to always on. So in this case, is the P5 doing everything it’s supposed to be doing per the stored setup even though it is completely dark? (Back power switch is on though)
Also in reading posts I presume there is little I can do regarding the TV remote turning off the P5 excerpt for covering the IR receiver?
Thanks and have a safe and musical Christmas.
If you’re using an LG TV there is a known conflict between the remote codes. We had been using those IR codes for years and within the last couple of years LG adopted the same codes for their TVs. Unfortunately there really isn’t a great fix for this. One, not so elegant solution is to use a small piece of electrical tape and cover the IR sensor on the P5 to prevent any IR codes from being received. This does of course keep you from accessing the unit via the remote. But like most you’ll play with the regenerator when you first get it and then after a while you’ll stop playing with the functions and let it do its job silently in the background. The other option is to allow the IR codes to turn the unit on/off frequently. If you have all the outlets set to always on then the regenerator will continue to provide regenerated power to those outlets no matter what, in this use the power on will simply be turning on the display of the unit.
Thanks for responding. The remote is actually the Bell Canada remote that is supplied with our cable box.
With respect to the unit being off but providing regenerated power I just want to clarify that that it is doing so with all settings that I inputted intact be they MW or sine, voltage output adjustments etc, correct?
The LG TV remote has the same code. I first encountered that in with my LG TV in 2012 with my P5. Cover the remote sensor on the P5. Once you get setup, you wont likely need to use the P5 remote much anyway.
My solution: I moved the LG and bought a Sony TV
