I'm looking to get a miniDSP 2x4 HD. I've got some questions related to controlling/automating the use of the miniDSP 2x4 HD:

1. I see that miniDSP has published some of the IR commands for the miniDSP: support.minidsp.com/support/solutions/ar...for-minidsp-products
However, the article doesn't have the command for the Power On button. Anyone have it (in Hex)?

2. Does the miniDSP 2x4 HD support discrete power on and off infrared commands? In other words, an infrared command for Off and another infrared command for On? Discrete commands will make it easier to control with a universal remote.

3. My processor's trigger out plugs into my power conditioner's trigger in, so when the processor turns on, the power conditioner's switched outlets also turn on. I was considering plugging the miniDSP into one of the switched outlets, so the miniDSP will turn on automatically when the processor is turned on. When the miniDSP receives power, does it power on automatically (some components don't necessarily turn on automatically when they receiver power)? Also, does the miniDSP revert to the last preset that it was using before it received power? 
I know some folks probably leave their miniDSP's on all the time, but if there is a power loss, it would be good to program a universal remote to be able to turn it on (but only if it is off, so discreet power on and off commands would be good).

4. If I get the WI-DG Wifi/Ethernet to USB bridge, is it possible to use it to control the miniDSP via TCP commands (i.e. select the preset, etc? Are the IP commands published?

Hi Randman,

A partial answer for question number 4.  You might want to take a look
at Mathieu Rene's miniDSP Controller software.  It appears to have some
of the functionality of the WI-DG bridge. 

It supports a number of miniDSP devices, including your 2x4 HD.  It sees
extensive use among the Bass EQ and ezBEQ user community.  Often
with a 2x4 HD and more recently the FLEX.  It worked well with my SHD
through a USB connected RPi 4.  

Repository & ReadMe:
github.com/mrene/minidsp-rs

Documentation:
minidsp-rs.pages.dev/

Mathieu is fairly active in the Bass EQ and ezBEQ discussions
taking place on AVS Forum.  I hope this helps and best wishes.

The physical 2x4 HD doesn't have a power on/off button, and it can't be turned on/off using its remote control either. It is on when power is connected and off when it isn't. I therefore doubt there are some sort of hidden commands that you could access to achieve the same.

I'll just add that the newer Flex model does have a standby mode though and so you may want to look into that more.
