Sleeping mode receiver / cd player

by noonespecial / May 4, 2006 9:09 PM PDT

Beeing infamiliar with buying seperate components, does a sleep-mode (system turns to standby in a set period of time the user sets) of an AV receiver means that the connected cd-player also turns to standby? As they are seperate components (most probably of different brands), it doesn't seem expectable, but I need to know before I buy something. I mean, what is a sleep-mode when you have to turn off the cd-player manually anyway?

Thanks in advance

Depending on the brand and the type of receiver, it might or might not turn off additional components. I have an old Sony ES that once I turn the receiver off, it turns my tv off automatically. Pioneer also has a link cable that you can connect to like componensts and it allows you to control them through one remote (usually the receiver), so that might turn off components as well.

Ah yes, Onkyo has the same thing as Pioneer, and since the receiver I am probably going to be is an Onkyo: Do you (or anyone else) have any experience/ideas how that might work with Onkyo (or Pioneer since the system looks the same). I don't necesarilly want the receiver remote to handle the cd player, just that they can react to eachother. Thanks

I've never really played much with that feature. I remember Sony used to have it as well or they might still with their cd changers. I had a pioneer 18 disc changer that I bought for my parents a long time ago and I hooked it up to a double deck cassette deck s they could talk to one another. As far as the functions are concerned, I'm more into having 10 remotes by me, if that means I'm going to get all the functions of ayh single piece of equipment. Some folks prefer to have everything running of 1 remote and I'm comfortable either way. It's def. a choice you're going to have to make based upon all the features you want.

Hope this helps.

Yeh thanks for the help, I figured figuring I don't really use sleep mode that much, so I purchased the components while still hoping they might be able to interact (with a little luck :)). Anyway, thanks again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
