Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

There have been a couple of forum users that have inquired about this plugin over the last couple of months, so please feel free to chime in on any feedback that you may have -- most changes/commands are fairly simple, though I may not be able to directly test the results if my receiver does not support a particular feature. Of course, if you have any errors getting setup or during use, let me know!

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Do you have a list of different models you think will work? I know on the device page it just lists one single model you've tested it with, but when you were creating it was there a document of the API which listed different ones that all support the same framework? Reason i'm asking is i'm thinking of getting a new AV receiver for my mini-cinema (well.. i say mini.. micro more like based on the size of uk houses).. i was originally just going to get a Pioneer VSX 922 like my current lounge one but looking at it Onkyo ones seem to be a lot cheaper for similar specs.. (and of course being Scottish i resent paying anything more than i have to.. need to keep the money bin topped up for my daily swim in it)

Computer says no.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

As far as I can tell, nearly all devices post-2009 support the eISCP protocol that the plugin implements... if you have a particular model in mind, let me know and I can check it out. I have not seen a complete list of those supporting it, but for example an Android app lists these as examples of supported eISCP models:

TX-NR509 TX-NR609 TX-NR709 TX-NR809 TX-NR1009 TX-NR579 DTR-20.1 DTR-30.1 DTR-40.1 DTR-50.1 DTR-70.1 DTR-80.1 DTR-20.2 DTR-30.2 DTR-40.2 DTR-50.2 DTR-70.2 DTR-80.2TX-SR707 TX-NR807 TX-NR1007 TX-NR3007 TX-NR5007 TX-NR708 TX-NR808 TX-NR1008 TX-NR3008 TX-NR5008 DHC-40.1 DHC-80.1 DHC-40.2 DHC-80.2 PR-SC5507 PR-SC5508

If you have another model in mind, I'd be happy to check out the specs to see if I can figure it out. BTW, I have been very happy with the quality of mine as a home theater receiver; I don't play a ton of just pure music through it, so can't speak to that.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Hi,

I have installed your plugin and it installs fine and finds my receiver as well which is an Onkyo TX-NR414. However, in Devices Connected Configuration, I do not get any information in the Connected Inputs and cannot proceed any further. I get Connected Zones as Main. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

It sounds like you haven't selected any of the inputs on the Device Configuration screen -- sorry if my instructions were not clear on that aspect, I'll look into revising them (actually, now that I think about it, perhaps I should default to showing all unless someone deselects them).

I may look into that, but in the meantime, go to the Device Configuration screen and select all of the inputs which are connected to your device (you can select multiples). The selected set here is what appears in the actions / drop downs.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Hi Adam,

That seems to be the very problem that I don't get any inputs in the Device Configuration screen unless I am doing something wrong. Attached are pics for clarity and log file entry:

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

I get the exact same problem with a TX-NR808. I was thinking that it might be because mine is an older model and may not support the features necessary.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

No, likely both are the same issue and this is a bug in the plugin... hence the beta tag :-) I'll take a look and fix it up -- should be able to take a look tonight and figure it out. Will post back with what I find and/or the fix.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Okay, duplicated and fixed this issue - it was a fairly easy find/fix once your details were posted, so was able to quickly knock it out. Let me know if this fixes it for you (should...) and if we need to look into anything more I will be available to debug more tonight.

Looking good, I've created the device now and will move on to the next stage :-) Many thanks for the swift turnaround...

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

The inputs have appeared but when trying to select one of them, I get the following in the Event Log:

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Which input are you trying to select? You might want to turn debugging and set it to high, then attempt the same command and post the results. You'll likely want to tone down the debugging or turn it off after re-generating the error or you will get a LOT of extra stuff in the log later ;-)

Thanks,
Adam

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Thanks for the detailed log... looking at it, it appears it is sending a response that is not within the eISCP definitions that I used -- so I don't really know what the heck that response message is saying. Since it is on first connection (it appears) I am going to guess it is a status message of some kind that I can safely ignore.

I'll add some code to ignore commands in an unknown format and see if it will still give you control.

Re: Onkyo Network Remote Feedback and Discussion

Please try downloading the latest version and giving it another try... I apologize for the troubles, but I am unable to duplicate your issue here, so I believe it could be model-specific behavior that we are seeing. This new version will ignore (but log, if debug is enabled) any commands received which it doesn't understand. Please let me know if this helps at all... Version should be 0.7.9, but I will hold of posting an announcement to see if the issue is resolved.
