I wanted to share my biggest frustration with the Strata and that is the remote control operation (physically it works great). I want this to be more constructive rather than a whinge. My comments are regarding how it interacts with the TV located above my unit. I can remember this problem has been noted a couple of times either here or somewhere else.
My use case for buying an integrated is because we have an apartment so everything is together in the living room, so no dedicated listening room. It seems that quite a lot of buttons on the remote control various functions on the TV (LG C1). As an example, the single most annoying is the Strata “on” button starts Amazon Prime therefore turning on the TV. Similarly, the channel up button on the remote turns on the Strata etc etc. The Strata “Off” button is not used by the TV. I realise this may be only with this TV/brand and PS cant be over all the IR commands from other manufacturers.
I’m not running a streamer so cannot wake the Strata, I also cannot wake the Strata remotely via an app. Either of these would have been a viable workaround, instead have to press the front button every time.
Is there another solution? Ideally I’d like to reprogram the remote/Strata? I’d also rather not buy extra stuff (no space).
