A question about my SMS-1. If I power up the SMS-1 via a serial command, no IR commands will then work, just serial commands. To return to IR control I have to turn off the SMS-1 via the front power switch and then turn it back on. I can then use IR commands. However, after doing this, if at any time I send it a serial command, IR does not work again, forcing me to again turn the unit off and then on to regain IR control.
Is it suppose to work this way?
Update: With the setup screen displayed, I see that whenever I send a serial command it goes into "Slave Mode". While in this mode IR does not work. What the heck is "slave mode"?
