Onkyo Network Remote - Introduction & Installation

Introduction
This Indigo plugin allows Indigo to act as a remote display and/or control for a network-connected Onkyo Receiver. All commands/buttons found on the standard remote can be sent to the receiver as well as many additional commands not readily available for direct access (normally requiring menu navigation). The status of many different aspects of the receiver is available via Indigo Device states.

v0.5.9 Initial BETA Release
This first version posted, v0.5.9 should be considered a BETA release -- it has only been tested on one Onkyo receiver model thus far and, though working for me, is likely to have a few bugs or missing features. Please post any issue or enhancement suggestions that you would like!

The following changes were made to v1.1.12, which is now posted (same download link in original post):

  • Improved the response time when issuing multiple commands in a short amount of time.

v2.1.3 Release
The following changes were made to v2.1.3, which is now posted; it may be downloaded via the plugin store or from the menu options inside the Indigo Client. Note, I believe at least a couple of people were running this version via a pre-release to fix specific issues below, nothing significant has changed from that and no need to update.

  • Fixed tuning issue with direct tune to AM stations
  • Fixed issue reading the currently tuned radio station
  • Added property on receivers to adjust the volume display - receivers may send base 10 or base 16 numerical values
  • Added input source of 18 as reported as a valid input in the forum
