yeah, tried that version, same issue.

You know the drill then. Crank up the verbosity and see what comes up in the log. With that type of cycling it isn't making it through the connect.

The salient bit is below. Not terribly revealing. I'm still trying to find a spare regular serial cable so I can hook it up to my laptop & see if it works without all the crap in the middle.

IVB, Cheap shot. If you haven't used for a while check and see if power save (or similar) is set to on in the set up menu for the player. Denon added this little feature but don't know if Marantz followed.

Power save turns off the serial port leaving the thing dead to the world when put into standby. It's pretty well buried in my 3800. On is the default condition if the player was reset for any reason.

I used a regular serial cable to no avail, then realized it's definitely the driver. If I don't even hook up a serial cable to the com port, it does the same thing (cycle between those two). IE, in theory either of you could try adding a Marantz DVD-DV6001 driver and you'd see the same situation.

It doing the same thing without hooking anything up doesn't tell you anything. With a serial connection with no flow control it will open it up and write to it all day long and it doesn't care if anything is on the other end or not. I posted 0.81 with some logging that should tell you how far it is getting along in connecting to the device. I think you have an issue somewhere in the configuration of the player since nothing in the driver or cqc would have changed to cause it to no longer connect.

Thanks. I just tried that via the IP serial server, here's what it says. I'll try with the laptop & serial cable in a little bit (making dinner for the kids).

Oh Good Lord!

Not sure how/why, but it appears that turning it on (it was in "sleep/standby" mode) makes this connect. I just put it back to sleep, then was able to use the "Power" command to bring this out of sleep mode.

Eh, sorry about that, thanks for creating that 0.81 version (and for the driver itself).

There must be a hard "off" as opposed to sleep mode so it was dead to rights. It should still respond to a power query when in standby, but that is the only thing it will respond to. When connecting the driver queries power state of the device and then turns it on if it is off to get all the associated field values instead of creating a bunch of "Unknown" values for quite a few string fields.

Well, it was in a standby mode, i just pressed the wakeup button on the front of the unit.

Regardless, it's back in standby, and still connected, so if anyone else reads this with one of these in the future, make sure to try that simple test first.
