TABLE OF CONTENTS
Understanding the 2 way remote system
This remote operates under a 2 way remote system. With
the two way remote system, the component responds to
signals sent from the remote by sending additional signals
(information about the status of the component, text data,
etc.) back to the remote. Thus, operations are performed
as a result of communication between the remote and the
component.
Remote
Component
When using a home entertainment system comprised of
several components compatible with the 2 way remote
system, please restrict 2 way remote system operation to a
single component. Normally, turn off the 2 way remote
system on all components except the receiver.
If you would like to turn off the receiver’s 2 way remote
system, see “Setting up the 2 way remote” in the
operating instructions supplied with the receiver.

Note on downloading CD disc names
from the CD players
You can download CD disc names (memos) only from
the CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible Sony CD players.
Depending on the CD player setting, it may take
several minutes to download CD disc names
(memos). For faster transmission, make the following
CD player settings.
When an CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible Sony
CD player is connected to the receiver
Check the following:
• The category for the CD function in the IR SET list is set to
“CD1.”
• The category for all other functions in the IR SET list is not
set to “CD2.”
You can check the current category setting by selecting a
component from the function list (see page 14). Category
indication appears on the second column in the display
window.
When multiple CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible
Sony CD players are connected to the receiver
When you use two CD players, set the COMMAND MODE
selector on the back panel of the CD players to “CD1” or
“CD2,” respectively, and set the category in the IR SET list to
match the corresponding player’s COMMAND MODE
selector position (see page 16). When you use three CD
players, set the COMMAND MODE selector to “CD1,”
“CD2,” or “CD3,” respectively, and set the category in the IR
SET list to match the corresponding player’s COMMAND
MODE selector position.
When setting category for the CD players, do not skip the
number or select the same number to the multiple players.
When an CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible Sony
CD player and a non-compatible Sony CD
player are connected to the receiver
Set the COMMAND MODE selector on the back panel of the
CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible CD player to “CD2” and
set the category in the IR SET list for the player to “CD2”
(see page 16).
Set the COMMAND MODE selector on the back panel of the
non-compatible CD player to “CD1” and set the category in
the IR SET list for the player to “CD1” (see page 16).
Before downloading CD disc names (memos) from the
CONTROL A1/A1 -compatible CD player, temporarily
change the category setting of the non-compatible CD player
to some other category (“VideoCD,” for example). After
downloading is completed, set the category setting of the
non-compatible CD player to “CD1” again.
When using a non-Sony CD player in
conjunction with Sony CD players
Program the remote to control the non-Sony CD player (see
page 16).
See the sections above for settings of the Sony CD players.
