Bose SoundTouch 300 Discrete Power and Power Off
I recently purchased a SoundTouch 300 Soundbar and Acoustimass 300 which I really like. I have 2 questions:
1) What are the discrete IR codes for power on and power off?
I am using a Logitech Harmony Universal remote. It has IR extenders connected to all my devices. The Logitech Harmony isn't IR so I don't have to point it at anything and it works great. All my devices have discrete power on/off except for the SoundTouch 300. This has caused problems if the SoundTouch 300 gets turned off with everything else on, or vice versa. I can use the TV setting on the SoundTouch 300 to turn it on, effectively getting a discrete power on, but I don't have a power off. Please send me the discrete power on and power off codes so I can add them to my universal remote.
2) How can I set the SoundTouch 300 so that it will never power off?
The SoundTouch 300 seems to power off after about 20 minutes of inactivity. This is bad. We were watching a cable TV show and paused it for a while and came back and the SoundTouch 300 was turned off, but the TV and cable box were still on. And what's worse is without discrete power on/off codes there is no way to fix this with the universal remote control without getting out the original SoundTouch 300 IR remote, or using the universal remote app. Neither of these solutions are wife friendly. Please add a setting to disable automatic turn off.
I've had a original Bose 321 for the past 15 years which has been a good system but it has a couple of things that really caused me problems First, it didn't have discrete power on/off, and second no matter how low I set the power volume, when I turn it off and on it again it would reset the volume to 20. This made it hard to turn on in a house with people sleeping. I was hoping that after 15 years that issues like these would no longer exists. Unforuntately I have two similar issues with the SoundTouch 300.
