I purchased the Sony BDP-S5100 looking for some IP Wake on LAN integration. So everyone knows, there are a few issues:
The compatibility page states Wake-On-Lan and indeed it does have this feature, however, it also states to register the unit with the free Sony Media Remote iOS app prior to use. Well, as of this posting, the BDP-S5100 is not compatible with the Sony Media Remote iOS app. SO… no Wake-On-Lan for this guy if registration is indeed required. I can confirm it is not waking on LAN for me but I do have some IP control once it is on.
I do seem to be able to get some IP connectivity, however, is this unit a Series 8 or Series 9 or, instead, is there going to be a library update for the BDP-S5100? Which selection do I select?
My work around is to IR blast power on. Once on I can IP the power off using Series 9 during setup. I have not tried other commands as of yet. Menu does work so I assume I get IP connectivity. Is there live feedback or is there supposed to be?
I assume at some point a firmware update will get the iOS app working and then Wake On Lan. I am more curious about feedback.
