In Response To: New Sony DVD-CX850D (Robert Morgan-Males)
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 communcations 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 essential 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 may not be possible to add support beyond this level.
