I am glad to announce that work on Denon/Marantz device handler is back with a new UI and a few additional features.
The initial device was created by Kristopher Kubicki, and the original version can be found HERE
With Kristopher’s permission who allowed me to continue his awesome work, the updated version brings a few new features:
- a fresh UI with an easier to control volume slider
- functional inputs
- surround sound mode inputs (Movie, Music or Pure Sound)
- zone2 control
- Quick Select custom inputs
The inputs can be changed from the ST mobile app or via a Smart Apps like CoRE or using Alexa voice control via EchoSistant
For initial install, you will need to define two parameters:
- IP address of your connected AVR and
- Port number
Hit the Gear in the upper right to access the preferences
The new code can be found here:
Ide/GitHub integration is also available, with the following credentials:
- Owner: sbdobrescu
- Name: DenonAVR
- Branch: Master
Based on Denon documentation, the following devices are compatible (the handler has been tested on AVR-S710W):
EnModelUnknown, //(0) EnModelAVRX10, //(1) EnModelAVRX20, //(2) EnModelAVRX30, //(3) EnModelAVRX40, //(4) EnModelAVRX50, //(5) EnModelAVRX70, //(6) EnModelNR15, //(7) EnModelNR16, //(8) EnModelSR50, //(9) EnModelSR60, //(10) EnModelSR70, //(11) EnModelAV77, //(12) EnModelAV88, //(13)
ALSO there are many available commands that I did not use. Below is a list of all supported commands. If you find one that you use often, I can add it to the handler. I just didn’t feel like cluttering the handler with too many options.
The surround sound modes can be changed by cycling through the sound tile (on the lift side of refresh tile). First press sets the MOVIE sound, second the MUSIC and third the “PURE DIRECT” sound. The label displayed is the actual sound output, not the type.
