I always just ended up pressing the switch on the device to manually turn on/off the fans.

I never figured out why it didn't work, but every time I brought it up, everyone just said to get a smart switch. I finally bought one, this one. It is FANTASTIC!

I connected the receiver to the 'Master' outlet and the fans to the 'On/Off with Master' outlet and viola! My fans now turn on/off with my system (the 4520 pulls enough juice to trigger the outlets). CyberPower is based in Minnesota, about 30 minutes from my house actually. Quite possibly the best $16.52 I've spent!

The Panamax M8-AV-PRO has a 12 volt trigger. I'm using that and it works fine for my cooling fans.

If you have your 4520 connected to a UPS that can be an option too. I use an APC UPS with my 4520. I have the 4520 connected to the Master outlet and my fan connected to a slave outlet. WHich allows the fan to automatically turn on/off with the 4520.

I have a SurgeX which has a remote, but it applies to almost all the outlets. I tried, a few times, to figure it out with my device. No such luck. I wish they made a device exactly like this with a 1/8" remote connector. Oh well. Working now.

I use a APC Smart-UPS 1500VA in my system, but it is connected into a handful of devices also.

I had devices that could get the job done, but they were performing other functions and at the end of the day, I needed a specific device for a remote triggered outlet....or you know, Denon just to have left the triggered outlet on the receiver.

Is there a bluetooth adapter that works with this model if needed? I'm hooking it up with a projector and blu-ray player
Sorry, but firmware updates by USB is not possible at this time. Most any 3rd party Wifi router that can be set to "bridge" mode can be used while for Bluetooth you can use a 3rd party Bluetooth adapter (although if you use DLNA, likely no reason for Bluetooth).
