What remote are you using? Old / early MSR could be set to different modes

The remote I’m using has function button in the bottom left hand corner in blue, it’s black with a green play button.

I’m presuming this is the correct remote for these speakers as they are quite old now.

The jumpers are set to Option 1?.

Is this the correct remote to use please they are not the smiley faces variety which I believe uses the modern silver remote?, they are the original ones upgraded to 24/96 on firmware 5.40. I’ve currently got them set to type 5 could that be why the remote isn’t responding to basic commands perhaps?..

Not sure if this applies to that remote but on the MSR+ if batteries are low, holding a button only produces a momentary signal that may have already stopped sending when the rear power switch is turned on and setup mode is not entered.

The light on the MSR+ will not stay solid but only pulse if this is the case.

Have been trying to add the Meridian System Remote + to the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Universal remote, adding manufacturer isn’t a problem as obvious. When it comes to adding device won’t accept MSR+ as model number thought that would be straight forward enough!, but doesn’t seem to be the case is there a specific model number for the Silver Meridian remote please?.

You should specify the device you want to control, not the remote. Meridian processors are in the Harmony database and I think the DSP5000 is also.


Main system - Sources (Kodi-HTPC, Vero 4k, FireTV, Sat) into Trinnov Altitude 32 (8-16) (+Roon), Trinnov Amplitude 8 amp & Vivid Audio (Giya G3, V1.5) and REL Stentor III speakers. Others: F80 + Raspberry Pi and other Pi systems.

So what if only one speaker is close to a wall/corner, do all speakers get cut?
If I understood the manual correctly at least the center can be configured separately (C.bou/C.Cor).

I think that is the case each speaker is the same as the other, as I am learning the Master controls the others and replicates it’s settings likewise to them. So if bass is -1 then it will be on the other no matter where you locate it in the room. Possibly but I’m only new to this.

Just an update on these speakers i’ve decided to move these on after a few weeks , the bass has been mentioned even in corner setting at -3 is pretty significant in my 14 x 8 lounge. To significant for my tastes. Superb sound but very bass dominated in a small room. Even set on corner setting at -3 it was very powerful indeed , shame I haven’t got a 25 x 24 or larger room to have them in space which they demand. I’ll go back to looking for DSP5200 again!.

I much prefer DSP5000's or DSP6000s, having lived with all three for lengthy periods.
You were 110% spot on with what you said there as I’ve found out, wise words for sure.
