You can't do anything with CDJ and any of the Sony DVD changers. Check out the URL below for an explanation why.
The CX850D is not supported by CDJ because this player was apparently designed to only use its Control-A1 port for communications to a slave changer and cannot itself be controlled via Control-A1 like the Sony CD changers can. Control-S communications with the CX850D are still possible using the Slink-e, but this is a one-way form of communication and would preclude CDJ from supporting key features for this player, such as automatic disc identification and accurate playlist control. We are considering using CDJ as a mechanism to simply begin the playback of DVDs on the CX850D, but it is not be possible to add support beyond this level.
