      I purchased a cherry Beocenter 2, had it serviced and am ready to set it up. Right now, I just want to use it for listening to CD’s. I can connect the RCA audio out jacks to the aux input of my Beosound Edge and it works great, but no remote works. 2 Beo4’s and a Beo One. I know they work, so it’s not them. I suspect it was used in a system with a TV, as I have seen the message about adjusting sound via the TV. I’ve tried the PL jack, but again no remote works. I do get sound, but reduced compared to the aux. I have tried to find anything in the old forums, and did see a mention of using a special PL cable, is this what my problem is? Thanks!

        Talking through my hat because I don’t own one myself, but this sounds like the classic “Option 0” setting where the attached TV is supposed to process the IR remote.  Everybody says “just do Sound / 1 / Store on your Beolink 1000 remote, while the power is off.”    The manual fragment below confirms & tells how to do it with a Beo4:

        Beocenter 2 A.OPT settings

        I believe it’s perfectly normal for Aux output to be louder than PowerLink because PowerLink level is controlled by the volume control.  I was recently reminded of that the hard way, accidentally plugging my Beocenter 9500 Aux out straight into a power amp: Yikes that was loud.

          No luck. I even reset it to defaults. It still says go to the TV to adjust sound. Maybe is is the power link cable. Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

            As an owner of a cherry Beocenter 2, I was in the same situation. No matter what I tried, I couldn’t get it to work. Until I powered the Beocenter 2 down and tried it and worked the first time! And it works for the two Beo4 and Beo One remotes. I hav noticed that if you unplug the unit, you might have to go through the same process after plugging it in again

                        I purchased a cherry Beocenter 2, had it serviced and am ready to set it up.!

                        May I ask where you had it serviced? Would love to acquire a BC 2 someday.

                          They repaired a Beosound 4000 for me in addition to the Beocenter 2. Very knowledgeable and quick turnaround.
