Sony DVD Player won't turn on/off without HELP

Everything works great on my Harmony One..EXCEPT..it will not turn my Sony DVD player on or off.  The "help" button resolves the issue, but it's a pain to go thru this everytime to turn it on or off.  Anyone have any suggestions on things to try?

Re: Sony DVD Player won't turn on/off without HELP

what was it at and what did you increase it to?
 
the behavior is typical of what I suggested...I would increase it a lot just to verify if this is indeed the problem.

This worked for me as well... for some reason, switching to "Play DVD" turned off the Sony Receiver (STR-K740P).  Adding a second "Power toggle" to the macro worked perfectly.

 

Thanks!

you really don't want to be adding additional power commands to the activity string.  those are not tracked.  you have an underlying programming problem and you're only masking it instead of fixing it

That would normally happen only if the receiver was not included in the Activity.

This does sound like a programming error.
