Need help connecting 2 sony mega changers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a sony DVP-cx995v 400 disk DVD changer, and was looking a picking up a second one. One of my friends told me that if you have 2 of them you can connect both of them together so you are able to use it like one single 800 disk changer on one remote. Is this true, and if so how the heck do you do it? Also I was considering getting a universal remote to run both of them, my AV unit, my 5 disk CD changer, TV, and the new 400 Disk bluray changer from sony. Anyone have any suggestions on the best one for this. It needs to be somewhat cheap (250 or less) and easy to use so I can teach the wife to do it. I know the 400 disk DVD changer has the ability to run the remotes on different channels in case you have something that is interfering with it.

Well.....several months later, but I'll answer. No, you caannot daisy chain them. What you can do is set up each to run a discreet IR code for the remotes (so you don't turn both on when trying to turn one on). The instructions are in the manual, but it's not tough. There a switch in the battery compartment of the remote and a couple of button pushes on the faace of the unit to switch between the 3 pre-defined remote codes in the unit.


As for remotes....I always like the Harmony. You can set both players onto one remote once you've set up the codes as I outlined above.
