Title: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: jullio on November 30, 2013, 08:57:36 pm
Looking for someone to take over this project.  I am running out of time to work on it.  I can give them access to code.mios.com and also make them a colaborator on apps.mios.com.  Are there any programmers interested?

The plugin code is now hosted on code.mios.com.  Please see instructions and other documentation on the new wiki page at http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_onkyoavr/wiki (http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_onkyoavr/wiki).

Created an Onkyo Receiver plugin from the original Onkyo Receiver plugin.  Also implemented code from the Denon Receiver plugin to allow multiple zones as devices.  Feel free to give feedback on my plugin.  My receiver is a TX-NR616.  Plugin still is in beta, but basic functionality is there.

This plugin is not compatible with UI6.

Instructions
After installing the plugin a device will automatically be created.  Go to the advanced tab of that device and add IP address of your receiver (I recommend setting a static IP address on your receiver).  You will have basic control from the dashboard.  You must have "network standby" enabled for this plugin to turn the receiver on and off.

Versions and Change Log:
1.0  Initial release

1.1 Fixed some errors

To be released: 1.2 Adding TV control for testers.  Possible navigation change.

1.3-12-29-13
- Bug fixes
- Better Navigation screen.  Added Navigation buttons. Take a look at attached screenshot.
- Added Information Tab.
- Added TV on, off, and input - Feature beta - I need testers.  My tv doesn't support control from Onkyo receiver.
- Possibly closer to AutHomationHD App support.

1.4- 12-31-13
- Fixed bugs with mute toggling. 
- Cleaned up some code.

1.5 - 2014-01-06
- Added Home and Menu navigation buttons.

1.6 -2014-01-06
- Added Playback controls
- Added setIfChanged function for better coding standards
Need opinions on if the screen is getting too crowded with the playback controls.  Screen shot is attached for version 1.6. 

1.9 - 2014-02-03 - Beta Release
- Added HDMI Output
- Added Macro Raw Commands as an input in config tab (Not tested).
- Bug fixes with Macro - Now Macros are zone independent.  Fixed not selecting items.

Awesome ... I've been waiting for an Onkyo plugin to resurface since they fixed the Onkyo firmware bug that messed it up if Vera was on the same network.

Where can we find it?

I am publishing the plugin now. It would be great for feedback on the plugin.

Post by: niharmehta on December 07, 2013, 02:09:28 pm
Hopefully I can test it out this weekend!. 
As for the Onkyo problems: As GT! mentioned, Onkyo published new firmware last month that specifically calls out and resolves the issue related to a Vera being on the same network. I have been running this new version  for the last month and my Onkyo has been working flawlessly since then.

I still had the Onkyo Media Control Plugin 0.11 installed (luckily!!!) and from ancient times... is this new plugin a "replacement"? I have installed it and it does work... will this plugin be further developed by you?
Title: Re: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: niharmehta on December 13, 2013, 08:12:25 pm
@jullio GREAT WORK!.
It has definitely extended the functionality from before. Multi-zone works well which was a bit of pain with the old plugin.  Defining the NET services by name is also a big improvement. 

Although I doubt this was caused to your plugin, I did have a problem during install. I am just stating it in case someone else comes across the same symptom.
I manually cleared the old Onkyo plugin from my Vera and installed the plugin.  Not sure why, but for some reason the UPnP devices advertised  between my AV Vera unit and my Primary Vera got corrupted. The primary Onkyo device boxes on the primary vera  showed a generic icon with no controls. I finally just restored my primary from backup and everything worked great after and the controls were available in the GUI.

One thing I have noticed with the old Onkyo plugin and your new one is that many of the named inputs that I can select in the drop-down in the Advanced or PLEG configuration screens for the plugin show device names that do work with at least my Onkyo.  The obvious Input1-10 work, however at least with my model  (TX-NR818)  the discrete names are hit or miss.   Not sure if there is a way to fix it though as it may work on other models.

I will keep testing over the next week, but for now it is definitely worth upgrading from the old one.

You shouldn't have any problems with installing the plugin after following a couple of steps.  If anyone does please let me know.  I don't have two Vera's so my install hasn't been tested for that scenario.  Below is my recommendation when installing the plugin.


If the device menu only shows on/off and volume just reload the web page by pressing F5 or click refresh on the browser menu.

Could you tell me what discrete inputs don't work for you.  I implemented the inputs a little different than the older plugin.  Also do all the inputs on the settings page work?  I appreciate your feedback.

Post by: jullio on December 18, 2013, 01:09:03 am
The Onkyo receiver has the capability to control the tv through an hdmi cable.  The Onkyo receiver calls it RIHD and at least my TV (Visio Mseries) calls it CEC.  My TV can turn on and off my Onkyo receiver through CEC.  I saw the option in the Onkyo App to turn off the TV from the receiver.  Has anyone got this to work?  Onkyo says it is possible.

If you would like I can add a command in the Onkyo Plugin to turn the tv off or on.  I just need testers to try it out.  I wanted to add this functionality but I could never get my TV to turn off from the Onkyo App.

Have an Onkyo TX-NR717 and this plugin works great. Had been working on my own simple plugin prior to your release but, nothing as versatile as yours. Do have some comments and questions.

1. you spelled DLNA wrong.
2. did some re-arranging of the Control tab, would like to send it to you for review is possible
3. any idea why this doesn't work in Vera Mobile or AutHomationHD? Get error "No implementation".
4. you included several Network Selections that are not available on the NR717 like Airplay, Napster & E-Onkyo. Did you include them because they are available on other models?
5. would be happy to help test any other features you add

By the way, great implementation, really like this app.

I had the old plugin also.  I took the old plugin added control for the other zones.  The old plugin disappeared from the apps selection so I thought I would bring it back.

In reply to your post.
1. I fixed the spelling.  That will be part of the update for 1.2.  Won't be launching another update tell I can test some other things for better stability.
2. I am open to layout changes.  I took most of my time working on the functionality and not the UI so I am all ears for any layout improvements.
3. I do not know why.  If you could get me more information or if other custom apps do work in the Vera Mobile, then I can see how to fix it.
4. I included all the inputs and net services that were listed on Onkyo's eISCP documentation to support other receivers.  My receiver doesn't support Napster and e-onkyo either.
5. I will be adding a button to turn off and on your tv to the next update.  Let me know if anyone gets it to work.

I also use the DSC alarm plugin and all of the devices listed for that one appear on Vera Mobile and AutHomationHD.  I can also control the alarm just like in the Vera itself.  I don't have any other plugins to compare.

Looking at the code, looks like the service for setting the volume level needs to be changed to the appropriate service:

ServiceId: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl
Action: SetVolume
Variable: DesiredVolume

I too noticed the plug-in does not work in the App.  It causes the App to crash.  It works fine on my computer though.  I'm using an Onkyo TX-8050 network receiver.  I like the app and am looking forward to future advancements.  Let me know if I can be of assistance with testing...

Hi Jullio,

Thank you very much for the plugin! I have Onkyo TX-NR579. And now i can control some functions my receiver.
But sume functions doesn't work. I try to use macro: select NET - > Favorite - > [Step]. Receiver switches to Favorite but occurs further nothing.
In the menu of a plug-in it would be good to organize buttons: left right down up as on remote control. Now a can't select station from menu.

I could understand that being the case for AutHomation but, I thought Vera Mobile was developed for micasaverde. Is that also considered 3rd party? Well anyway, hope that can be addressed soon. One of the reasons I purchased my Vera was the ability to control via my smartphone. By the way, I prefer the look and feel of AutHomation.

So if I change the volume serviceId to RenderingControll will the Onkyo receiver work in the AutHomationHD app of yours? Also is there anything else I could do to give more functionality in the AutHomationHD App.  Big fan of it.

The macro is an experimental function of the plugin.  I am still testing it, but I wanted others to try it.  You need to add a number in the macro steps field for it to select your station.  0 would be the first station in the list. 1 for the second station in the list and so on.  I am using the macro function to play a sound of a dog and siren if my security system is tripped while armed by setting up a scene to play macro1.  If you have any questions and feel the instructions need more information please let me know.

I will be adding the TV ON and Off buttons to this next release.  If people can test this and get it working then I could make the TV a child device and you can control your tv separate from the receiver device in UI5.  I just need community help on this for testing.  Watch for this feature in the next release.

It would still require them to add support for the plugin. Most of the apps require that the developer add support for the plugin unless they mimic exactly how MCV does with their web interface which I believe Automator.app does. HomeWave allows you to build your controls based on the service id's, but for apps that depend on the device type and already have the interface built for the device / plugin requires them to add support for those plugins.

Only if you are using the custom intent portion of the app like the home screen shortcuts or via tasker. I would still need to add full support of the plugin. However, by using the standard service types, it will make adding support easier and I will not have to create new code to support the custom service id's if I do not have to. That is why it is strongly encourage for plugin developers to use the standard services when ever possible for other developers to integrate it easily into their apps and to keep things clean and simple on the Vera end.

Hi Julio,

I got my Veralite for xmas and have just started playing around with it. I got the TX-NR616 and I have installed your plugin. I have just filled in the correct IP in the config. I have a few questions:

1. I am able to switch the onkyo off, using your plugin and authomationhd, I have also set up a scene to switch it on, but nothing happens when this is actiavted. Any idea why?

2. I know the macro-bit is in beta, but I still wonder why I dont see my other inputs in the list (like cable or tv etc) I can only see Net, USB, XM etc. It would be nice to have a macro to switch to the hdmi that hosts the xbox etc.

Kind Regards
Tommy

Hi tommylad. You have to enable the "always" on in the onkyo. Probably you have the wireless adapter? You will have to set up the onkyo that it is in network standby mode. I do not remember the name correctly. But it is not a vera or app issue.

Just wondering what standard service type should be used for selecting input sources?  I am looking at upnp.org and there is no standard service type for selecting input sources.  What upnp service ID's have you implemented in the AutHomationHD app?  Does the device type matter with your app in the Descriptor_xml file?
Title: Re: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: garrettwp on December 27, 2013, 02:00:47 am
I rely on device types to figure out what type of view / controls to display for the plugin. I create custom views based on these device types and other 3rd party apps do something similar. I would need to add dedicated code to to support the plugin. By using the standard service types defined by upnp and MCV, it will make things much easier to support. Every plugin needs to have a unique device id / type. Here are service types to look into:

AVTransport: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:AVTransport
MediaNavigation1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:MediaNavigation1
RenderingControl: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl
Volume1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:Volume1
InputSelection1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:InputSelection1

Look at the Sonos, Squeezebox, Russound plugins for examples on how to use these. Sonos and Squeezebox would be the better choices to start with.

For the inputs, you would use InputSelection1, the inputs range from input1 - 10 and some discrete inputs. I currently support Input[1-10].

I am starting to love my VeraLite and even though I still dont own any z-wave devices I now wake up pc's and switch off Samsung smart TV's. The Onkyo now also works for om/off.

I have zone2 connected, via audio over cat5, to my daughters room. She has small computer speakers connected. So, I set up a scene powering up zone2,net input and choosing her favourite radio program. That worked... however I ended up upsetting (understatement) my wife as the main zone also switched to net and the same station..playing...well..LOUD.  Anyone know why that happens? Normally, when doing this in the Onkyo app, the main zone remains at its default input (pc) when playing around with zone 2 and 3.

I am pushing an update right now to fix some errors.  I would just make sure your ip address is in the advanced tab is right.  Your receiver might be turned off or the receiver might have changed ip addresses.

Just submitted version 1.3 which adds support for the following service id's
MediaNavigation1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:MediaNavigation1
RenderingControl: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl
Volume1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:Volume1
InputSelection1: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:InputSelection1

I haven't implemented AV transport.  Still looking into it.  I hope that I can get support within your app.  If I have to change the device type I can.  Don't know if that changes anything in your app code. 

Looking to change my device type to "urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:receiver:1" so that all receiver apps can be supported by your android app.  With the base serviceIDs implemented it should be easier to support all the receiver plugins.  I think that would make your coding job easier.  I don't know what you think of that but I hope I am heading in the right direction.

Just tested your app with on/off, volume, and mute control.  My beta version 1.3 seems to work.  If you could give me any feedback, I would greatly appreciate it.

The person at MCV who reviews the plugins is away on vacation for two weeks. MCV also shuts down / works at a limited capacity for several weeks to celebrate the holidays.

AutHomation does not have direct support yet for this plugin. It is on the list. No time frame though.

Hi Julio,

I got my Veralite for xmas and have just started playing around with it. I got the TX-NR616 and I have installed your plugin. I have just filled in the correct IP in the config. I have a few questions:

1. I am able to switch the onkyo off, using your plugin and authomationhd, I have also set up a scene to switch it on, but nothing happens when this is actiavted. Any idea why?

2. I know the macro-bit is in beta, but I still wonder why I dont see my other inputs in the list (like cable or tv etc) I can only see Net, USB, XM etc. It would be nice to have a macro to switch to the hdmi that hosts the xbox etc.

Kind Regards
Tommy

I added the other inputs to the macro.  The Macro steps won't work yet.  Just leave it blank.  The macro was primarily designed for USB and the net services.  I can add code to handle navigation commands in later releases.

I am starting to love my VeraLite and even though I still dont own any z-wave devices I now wake up pc's and switch off Samsung smart TV's. The Onkyo now also works for om/off.

I have zone2 connected, via audio over cat5, to my daughters room. She has small computer speakers connected. So, I set up a scene powering up zone2,net input and choosing her favourite radio program. That worked... however I ended up upsetting (understatement) my wife as the main zone also switched to net and the same station..playing...well..LOUD.  Anyone know why that happens? Normally, when doing this in the Onkyo app, the main zone remains at its default input (pc) when playing around with zone 2 and 3.
I will have to look at the macro code to see if it handles zones.  I haven't tested it yet.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Hello,

Thank you a lot jullio for this great plugin !
Almost all functionalities work for me (Onkyo NR 515). But only one very interesting one is unfortunately not working : Macro.
I have read that this is for the moment not robust, but just in case i am not using it correctly, that is what I do in the following example (I just want to launch a mp3 file on a DLNA server): supposing that mp3 file is the 1st file located in the 1st folder of the 1st listed DLNA server , I select "NET" as Input and "DLNA" as Net Service and then I enter the following macro steps: 0,0,0. But nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong ?

Thank you a lot.

What receiver model do you have?

I personally don't use HDMI output and that is why it isn't implemented yet. Not hard to add though. I will add it to the feature list. No timeframe on adding it to the feature list.

Not enough screen real estate for both mute and unmute buttons.  I did implement mute and unmute separately in previous versions.  Is there a specific scenario you use for muting instead of having a toggle?

I have not tested dlna with macros.  If you could send me your logs when you run the macro I could troubleshoot.  You need to change debug mode variable to 1 and debug level to 3 in the advanced tab. Do this before you run the macro again.

Great plugin!  Awesome job. We really appreciate the hard work.

Everything works great on my TX-NR616 (After I figured out how to stop the Vera Lite from interfering with the Onkyo on the network.)

The only issue I'm running into is with the Macro as well.  (Which I know is still in Beta, but I figured you could use the feedback)
I would simply like the macro to run Pandora and I just started testing it with the QuickMix (which would be index number1 I believe) and I can't get it to work.  It is able to switch the receiver to "Net" and then it highlights "Pandora" but does not select it.  It just stays on the screen with all of the net options.  Am I missing something or is this still a result of it being in Beta?  I also tried it with vTuner and got the same result.

Please get back to me when you can, but again, no big deal.  I really appreciate you creating such an awesome app.

Thanks,

Ryan

Quick question.  I am in the process of deciding on a replacement to my old Bose sound system.  It supports 4 rooms, and I use it a lot.  Does the Onkyo plugin support adding another amplifier and several rooms (4 total)?

I don't see why not.  Each zone makes a child device for each receiver, which each zone can be associated to a different room.  If you want to try I can probably get it to work. 

My plugin can have any number of zones.  It is a dynamic setting.  Anything on the amplifier is probably hooked up to zone 3 or 4 on some receivers.  Mine is zone 3.  Which is the unpowered zone.  For me this is the zone that i would hook up an amplifier.

I can separately control zone 3, zone 2, and the main zone. 

I hope that answers your question.

So I am almost done coding to support the full features of onkyo receivers.  I have open sourced my code on code.mios.com.   

Looking to fully support avtransport in version 2.0. 

Hoping garret can get a little device support in the app authomationhd.  Wondering if there is anything else I can do to help to make it easier to code? I will even try to make receiver variable names standard.  At least between denon and onkyo plugin.

I just became alpha tester and the input selection widget doesn't send anything.  Not sure how to set the logs in the app to see what's wrong.

Thanks for the great app garret.

It is on my list of plugins to support. Right now I have higher priorities and plugin support has to wait. As for the input selection, I currently use Input1 - Input10.

Other suggestions, I advise that you change S_OnkyoAVTransport1.xml and S_OnkyoRenderingControl1.xml to S_AVTransport1.xml and S_RenderingControl1.xml. If other plugins that the user has installed uses these services, the plugins will conflict with each other and use the first file it finds that references this service. This can cause one plugin to not function properly while the other works fine. I also advise that you do not remove any of the variables or actions from these files due to conflicts and causing other plugins to cease to function correctly.

Thanks for the status. And the advice.  I will make those changes.  I made custom files for rendering control and avtransport because I was following the sonos plugin.  But if that is wrong way then i will definetly change them.

Thanks again for all the work on the authomationhd app.

There was a discussion on standardizing the AVTransport, MediaNavigation, RenderingControl, etc across the different plugins that need it. However, nothing was set in concrete. The issue lies on how to distribute the files. There would be conflicts on the apps which require them and include them in the app store. So one of the ideas is to package these files into it's own app / distribution and have the user install them as a separate install from the plugin like yours, Sonos, Squeezebox, Russound, Yamaha, and so on.

Here is the thread:

I have made a lot of bug fixes in version 1.9. It is in beta testing now.  You can try testing version 1.9 when it comes out.  I am trying to get past beta this week. 

To answer your question you can create a new device manually by selecting apps > develop apps > create device.  Put D_OnkyoReceiver1.xml in upnp device filename field and I_OnkyoReceiver1.xml in upon implementation filename field.  Also put in receiver IP address.  Then click create device.

I would like to see if you have any trouble after upgrading to 1.9 after I get it released.  Hopefully by the start of next week.

I'm sure it's operator error, but, I can't seem to get off first base.  I have the TX-NR509.  I have the IP statically assigned in the receiver, and can log into it via browser with no issue - so I'm sure it's not a connectivity problem with the receiver.

This is the first receiver plugin I've installed on my Vera lite, so no previous version to dirty the settings.  After installing, I entered the correct IP (.99), saved, and reloaded.  I refreshed the browser.  After it came back up I saw the three zones.  I changed it to two, and reloaded.

Now when it comes up, all of the buttons are de-selected.  I can click on them, and they momentarily toggle, but return back to their unselected state.  And, of course, there is no reaction on the part of the receiver.

I initially received a Luua error when I hadn't put the IP in, but that resolved itself once I updated the IP. 

Am I missing a step?

Well. This has been an interesting experience. Sounds like I was done a bit of a disservice with my Vera automatically upgrading itself to UI6 the first time I plugged it in (well, it prompted me to upgrade, but how could I know any better?). I've since downgraded to UI5. The plugin is working much better now.

The action is the name of what you are setting the target to.  The action does not have any parameters. So the action name would be DiscreteInputCable.

I have TX-NR609 and plugin works except accepting (SEL) and changing menu item in USB (for example folders on USB disc) or NET FAVOURITES.
Is my model not fully compatible?

Best regards
MPG

It should be compatible.  I will double check your receiver compatibility with the select button.

What ui version are you running?  Also what is your plugin version installed.  I need this information before I can start diagnosing.

Firmware: You are running the latest version: 1.5.622
Plugin: Onkyo Receiver (AVR) 1.9.

In setup menu or in home menu plugin works. It does not only in USB menu and NET menu.

OK I will put logic in to send different commands depending the input.  It will be released in version 2.0.
This change will most likely fix your problem.

I have the same or similar problem with my TX-NR3007.

Volume , power and cable/sat and main buttons work. If I click favorite it takes me to net. Net button doesn't work nor does any net option like Pandora or the like. 

Also the manual arrow buttons and select button don't work for me. So I can't even manually get into Pandora threw the app let alone get a macro going.

My 3007 was put out in 2009 figured maybe not compatible.

I could not find the tx-nr3007 in onkyo documentation.  If you could find out what commands your onkyo app sends to your receiver then I could add functionality.  I emailed onkyo for their api and they sent only documentation for my family of receiver, tx-nr616.   If you could get me eiscp documentation for your receiver then I could create a plugin compatible.

Damn, I might be outta luck I guess. I downloaded the onkyo app for my andriod, but when it opens and searches it only find my direct tv boxes and not my Onkyo. I'm assuming it might be to old for some of these things.

Without directions I would probley be unable to find the documentation that your requesting.

You can use raw commands in the macros to do anything.  To get a list of raw commands you can go to code.mios.com and download the excel spreadsheet that has all the commands.  Just look for the onkyo receiver project.

Secondly I have no plans to add more macros. If someone would like to add more macros then they are welcome to do it.

i have thought of a way that the onkyo avr could be controlled in the mobile app
its a little sloppy, but at least we would have some controll
it would require 2 new devices per zone and listing them as something they are not
     (this is exactly how the nest app added the home/away option)
     below are device and service types in the home/away xml file
     the device is     urn:schemas-watou-com:device:NestStructure:1
     the service type is     urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:SwitchPower:1
     all mobile apps see the device as an on/off switch but it works

for onkyo to work this way we would need (per zone)
1x on/off switch (for power on/off )
1x dimmer (for volume)

im not too sure how to do it myself
but im willing to learn and try if someone can help me

I really like this plug-in for my Onkyo receiver but I am having an issue with the settings on my Vera Lite holding the ip setting.  I established a static ip address for the receiver and made the change to the ip setting under the advanced tab.  The problem I am having is the ip settings change to a different address the next day.  My receiver is set for 192.168.1.2.  I make this change to the device advance settings and all is well.  But I come back the next day and these settings are changed to 192.168.1.30.  I cannot figure out what is happening.  The receiver is still set as 192.168.1.2.  This same problem occurs over and over.

Hello,
The plugin works very well, I have a TX NR515.
But it seems that I have a bug :
- if the receiver is ON, when I set it to OFF with the plugin, the receiver shut shown, that is OK
- but if I create a scene where I want to shut down the receiver, this does not work (receiver still ON) and the receiver is frozen, I have to disconnect and reconnect the power supply to get the receiver work again.

Any idea ?
Precision : I have the version 1.9 of the plugin.

Regards.

I can confirm the bug I have described above: I checked the log and I have seen that the action "TVOff" is launched instead of switch power off.
As a workaround I switch the power off in Lua and it works.

When I add 6,3 or PSEC10,6,3; it won't pass along those commands. Those commands work well on every thing else.  - Pandora, VTuner, etc. Am I doing something wrong?

I have a feature request. I don't know if this is possible, or how much of a change it would require. I don't know about other Onkyo models, but mine uses .2 watts in standby. However, if I enable network standby, it uses around 40 watts. For my purposes, that's a whole lot of power wasted just to be able to remotely turn on the receiver over the network. Because of that, the Onkyo plugin gives me errors when I reload Luup unless the receiver is on at the time. Is there a way to have the plugin assume the receiver is off if it can't contact it when it's reloaded, so that it can still be used when the receiver is actually on? For now, I've just had to delete the device from Vera.

I can see what I can do.  i cant promise anything.  You just want to disable the onkyo plugin if it can't contact the receiver.  Then on refresh from the app or web interface the plugin will check again if it is available.

I have a 905, and it also has this power issue, so what I did was to run a serial cable to a near-by RaspberryPI, which I set-up with remote serial on the same ports that onkyo uses, and pointed the plugin(s) to the ip of the RPi instead. Works great, but I don't get any feed-back (e.g. on/off buttons shows no actual status) (I guess that they would if I connected directly to the onkyo ethernet?).

At the moment I am back on the old onkyo plugin, but I ought to switch back, since 'this is where the future is'.

That's a great solution. I started looking for some sort of option like that, but I have an HT-RC360, so from what I can tell, I don't have an interface like the serial connection. I'm just getting started with Arduino and MySensors, so I'm hoping to be able to use IR to turn it on.

Aha, sorry to hear that (And surprised that Onkyo still have not solved this issue properly, seeing as your model is much newer than my old 905!). IR should also get you there in the end, I guess.

The reason why there is no status is because in my plugin I send a second command asking status.  Networked onkyo receivers send back a message with status.  I am guessing you raspberry pi does not.  if you want to dive deep into this I can tell you the commands I use to get status.

Please do! I don't have much time at the moment, but I might start checking if the 905 supports the command in question, or if there's some parameter change to it.

thanks for the tip
this is working for power on and power off
but not for volume
when i create the shortcut
i select onkyo zone 2
then set control to volume
then when i click on create
it says invalid configuration

any idea on what i can do

edit
creating 2 separate scenes
1 for vol up
1 for vol down
works on scene shortcuts

is there a way to make the volume as a device shortcut though
as this requires 2 scenes which is counted as 2 devices in vera lite
and im almost maxed out on my 70

OK I will put logic in to send different commands depending the input.  It will be released in version 2.0.
This change will most likely fix your problem.

Jullio

I have the same or similar problem with my TX-NR3007.

Volume , power and cable/sat and main buttons work. If I click favorite it takes me to net. Net button doesn't work nor does any net option like Pandora or the like. 

Also the manual arrow buttons and select button don't work for me. So I can't even manually get into Pandora threw the app let alone get a macro going.

My 3007 was put out in 2009 figured maybe not compatible.

So I looked at the documentation and couldn't find anything specific.  Everything is the same between your tx-nr3007 on the navigation and the latest documentation.  That is the up,down,left,right commands.  The difference in the documentation is your tx-nr3007 shows that it doesn't support the net commands.  These net commands select specific apps such as spotify.  Also the net commands can stop, start, etc the music.

All I can do is select net.  The only way for me to find out what commands to send for your receiver is by seeing what the onkyo app sends to your receiver. You can record everything that the onkyo app does by installing wireshark and record everything while you are selecting pandora or spotify.  Then if you send me the wireshark recording I can know what commands are being sent. 

Sorry for the bad news and the delay.  If you are driven to get this to work then install wireshark and click record.  Then open onkyo app and do what you want the vera to do.  Then stop wireshark from recording.  Send me the recording and I will be able to find out what command to send for your receiver model.

has any progress been made for control in mobile app
i saw a few pages back discussion with garretp
and also in those pages discussion of changing service type

is there a beta
or can i change the service type manually for it to work
or add something to the avtransport URI ?

I worked with garret a while back to get support.  He says it is on his list, but I think it is way down there.  I implemented everything he needed me to do and am just waiting like the rest of you.  But to no avail I have heard nothing.  I would suggest you send garret a message requesting support for onkyo in his app.  Or support for any receiver for that matter.  I would be ok with generic receiver support with just on/off, volume, and change inputs.  I am part of his alpha program and still haven't seen anything.  So I hope that garret can put simple support in his app for just the basics for any receiver.  I know all networked receivers have those basics.

The reason why there is no status is because in my plugin I send a second command asking status.  Networked onkyo receivers send back a message with status.  I am guessing you raspberry pi does not.  if you want to dive deep into this I can tell you the commands I use to get status.

Please do! I don't have much time at the moment, but I might start checking if the 905 supports the command in question, or if there's some parameter change to it.
(I have switched to your plugin again, and it works just great apart from feedback)

Here is the power status request I send: SLZQSTN the full message is !1SLZQSTN.  This is the code that sends the command.  cmd = !1SLZQSTN

cmd = "ISCP" .. ONKYO_HEADER_SIZE
                     .. string.char(0, 0, 0, dataSize)
                     .. ONKYO_VERSION .. ONKYO_RESERVED
                     .. cmd

Here is the power status message I get back: PW00 for Off and PW01 for on. So the tcp packet test looks like this.
cmd = !1PW00
cmd = "ISCP" .. ONKYO_HEADER_SIZE
                     .. string.char(0, 0, 0, dataSize)
                     .. ONKYO_VERSION .. ONKYO_RESERVED
                     .. cmd

So it looks like this in wireshark: ISCP .. Onkyo Header size .. holder characters .. onkyo version .. !1PW00.

So if you could send something like that back to vera after getting the SLZQSTN command then the vera could know your receiver's status.

Hope I didn't confuse you.  These commands are raw data inside tcp packets.  So not sure what you are using on the raspberry pi but that is what my app is looking for.

i have thought of a way that the onkyo avr could be controlled in the mobile app
its a little sloppy, but at least we would have some controll
it would require 2 new devices per zone and listing them as something they are not
     (this is exactly how the nest app added the home/away option)
     below are device and service types in the home/away xml file
     the device is     urn:schemas-watou-com:device:NestStructure:1
     the service type is     urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:SwitchPower:1
     all mobile apps see the device as an on/off switch but it works

for onkyo to work this way we would need (per zone)
1x on/off switch (for power on/off )
1x dimmer (for volume)

im not too sure how to do it myself
but im willing to learn and try if someone can help me

what would i need to do to try this
The way that I control my receiver in the app is with custom intents.  To use custom intents you must add a widget to home screen.  Select the authomationhd device shortcut and choose the onkyo receiver zone you want to control.  Then all of the actions are available. 

This is a work around until garrettp supports onkyo in card view.

thanks for the tip
this is working for power on and power off
but not for volume
when i create the shortcut
i select onkyo zone 2
then set control to volume
then when i click on create
it says invalid configuration

any idea on what i can do

edit
creating 2 separate scenes
1 for vol up
1 for vol down
works on scene shortcuts

is there a way to make the volume as a device shortcut though
as this requires 2 scenes which is counted as 2 devices in vera lite
and im almost maxed out on my 70

You will have to talk to garret about getting support for a generic receiver in his app.  I wrote another post about just making generic receiver commands such as on/off, volume, and input.  I know all receivers have this support.

Well, regarding confusion, I'm about my normal level :)

OK, I understand the problem now. The onkyo (integra) ethernet protocol has added a header. The serial protocol only sends that data part (the cmd part in your example). So I'm guessing my 905 simply ignores the header, waiting for exclamation mart (!) then parses the command fine. But your plugin will not receive the header, so it will not understand the result from the 905. Probably throws it away.
I guess the fix would be to do the same as the 905, look for the '!' and then parse from there on.

But I see that you have limited time, so I'm not expecting this to happen. But at least we know what might be the cause. :) I'll see if I can find some moment to look into this myself.

Hi,

I have included this plugin in my home automation setup and included nice icons on my Ipad Minis using Homewave as the control unit.

I use the "advanced" plugin commands to control audio, switch inputs and put on favourite radio channels etc.

One of the most frequently used commands me and my gf use the mobile app or the onkyo remote for is sliding the "center" to top level and subwoofer level to bottom level (neigbour friendly).

I havent found any way I can control theese too levels in the "advanced commands" for the plugin. Am I right, or is there a way to control these too?  If its possible I'll make a couple of scenes and trigger them from a pushbutton mounted under the tv-room table.

Regards
Tommy

@ jullio

any chance you will develop the ui7 plugin?
Title: Re: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: charettepa on August 14, 2014, 03:50:41 pm
@jullio

finally got my 2nd vera
tested in ui7
app installs but keeps saying ip is missing even though its there
but if you reboot the onkyo ip gets removed

***updatehttp://192.168.0.12/cgi-bin/cmh/log.sh?Device=LuaUPnP
if you set autodetection to yes in settings of onkyo plugin
the ip address is kept and it creates zone 2 and 3 but gets stuck in a loop
changing zones to 1 in configure does nothing
as when you go back its 3 again
i looked at the real time log in my vera
http://192.168.0.12/cgi-bin/cmh/log.sh?Device=LuaUPnP

i can see that the run once startup lua creates device 2 then 3
then deletes 2 and 3
then starts creating them again
this is the loop that happens

i tried a few things but nothing stopped thew loop
when my device #'s got over 300 i deleted the app

any ideas of what i could do
this is my 2nd vera running ui7 and not my primary (which runs ui5)
i am willing to try anything or test whatever you say

Post by: charettepa on August 16, 2014, 04:26:35 pm
@julio

i have found the issue
with help of @guessed (DSC plugin developer)
it was an inconsistent code in L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua

you were referencing
D_OnkyoReceiver1.xml
with device type
urn:schemas-onkyo-com:device:receiver:1
but it needs to be urn:schemas-onkyo-com:serviceId:Receiver:1

in ui5 its not an issue
but ui7 performs a check

i have modified the L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua with this change
and attached to this post
you also must select settings under the main receiver device settings
and change automatically configure from no to yes or use default behaviour
also setting zones in config dosent work
neither does adding the parameter (zoneCount) in advanced
neither does adding the parameter (numZones) in advanced

you need to modify the zonecount and numzone value to the number of zones you need in the below 3 files for all instances of the value
i have modified the L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua to have a default #of zones to 2
i have modified the J_OnkyoConfig.js to have a default #of zones to 2
i have modified the S_OnkyoReceiver1.xml to have a default #of zones to 2

i have atatched the same lua file 2x
first one has default of 2 zones
second one has default 3 zones

after uploading the new lua file and setting automatically configure to yes and adding ip
reboot vera

you now have working onkyo plugin in ui7

i was unable to upload it as the forum wont allow it
download your existing file from the developpment section in apps
then modify it
if downloading it results in empty file

download it from the mios source and modify it
http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_onkyoavr/browser

make sure all instances of zonecount and numzones is changed to the number of zones you have
then save the file and upload it

that being said this impacts only the ammount of zones
the important file to upload is the lua i posted
then change autoconfigure to yes in onklyo settings
then reboot
this will get the receiver out of the startup loop
you will then have working receiver for zone 1
2 and 3 if you have them

Something goofy is going on as I still couldn't get it to work.  First of all, the IP address I'm entering under the "Advanced" tab is not remaining after reboot.  Second, when I upload the L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua file, and then click on view, it tells me that the file is empty.  However, when I download it, i can clearly see it isn't empty.  I'm thinking that i'm doing something wrong, or maybe a bug in UI7 RC.

i had the same issue with ip initially
as i previously posted
you need to first set the automatically configure for the main onkyo device to yes first
(this is found in the main onkyo receiver settings tab)
then it will stick

trust me i am using ui7 with working onkyo 2zone

the link is to the actual source code files put there by the developer
hosted by the mios page

something went wrong with your download
check the file before uploading it to see if its empty
i have seen 3 things cause empty file on download

- ie changes the file, because of protection rules, try using chrome or firefox
- windows 7 or up can block the file, right click, go to properties and click on unblock file
- your antivirus is blocking it and corrupting the download

Well, I can't control while Onkyo is ON, so I'm not sure that's the problem. I will look into Hybrid Standby Mode, because I don't know where it is in the AVR menu.

I can ping the IP of the receiver. Auto-configure is set to yes. Number of zones set to 1. The plugin keeps the IP address after reloading Luup. The AVR is on while I'm trying all of this, but I get lua startup failure every time.

Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you for the plugins.

I got mine up last night finally on UI5.  The USB firmware update for the receiver was just a mess.  Long story but when your doing a factory reset take out all the HDMI/Video Connections.  Speakers can stay but, no INPUTS except the USB stick.

I was getting the same error on mine.  Under the network settings of the receiver there is a Port for Control, not for proxy....

Set the IP address on the Plugin to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:Port for Control.

192.124.123.099:65000 for example.  Mine fired right up

Just curious if i do a fresh install of the plugin on UI7.  And assume that I am leaving the default setup of 3 zones.  Would I only need to upload the *.lua file for 3 zones?

I have tried a few different time adjusting for 2 zones and adjusting/uploading as accordingly.

Looking for someone to take over this project.  I am running out of time to work on it.  I can give them access to code.mios.com and also make them a colaborator on apps.mios.com.  Are there any programmers interested?

You should read the thread before you start shouting out to the higher ups. The developer doesn't have the time and wants someone to else to take over. So basically it's unsupported, would you like to take over?

@brandoncreel, have you gotten with @Julio to work out the logistics? I am anxious to see this ported to UI7. I did some of the testing for @Julio and would be willing to work with you on an updated version.

@kendad Julio has passed the app over to me to continue development and of course publish the app for use with UI7.  It's very near completion and I'm hoping to publish it by 3/1/15.  I'll be in touch later this month.

I was getting the same error on mine.  Under the network settings of the receiver there is a Port for Control, not for proxy....
Set the IP address on the Plugin to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:Port for Control.
192.124.123.099:65000 for example.  Mine fired right up
Where do you see the control port? I've got a TX-NR515. I thought I'd take another swing at installing this plugin, but the control port is not on the network screen.

I'm no further ahead than the last time I tried this. I found reference to control port 60128 over in this iRule forum (https://irule.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/455236-onkyo-integra-ip-control). My receiver is in the "known working models" list on the plugin wiki site. I've setup my plugin as in the screen shot below. I've tested the network connection from the receiver. I can get to the internet, I can ping it, it's got the latest firmware, and it's on the same subnet as Vera. I have no idea why this doesn't work.

@kendad and the rest of the Onkyo users.  I've published the app (version 2.0) which is now compatible with UI7, however before everyone upgrades, i'd like to have some people test it out.  If you are willing, please upgrade and share your experiences.

how do you force an upgrade in ui7
in ui5 it was simple
go to apps.mios.com select the app and login
with ui7 your login is not a mios login and you cant login

is there somewhere i can download the files

Post by: brandoncreel on February 17, 2015, 03:44:45 pm
@Charettepa You can't use apps.mios.com in UI7 to install apps.  You must do it through the dashboard of your Vera.

and asking what to do to force it to update
there is no way to force it to update in there (ui7)
how do i force it to upgrade
in order to report back on how it went, as requested

To force update a PLUGIN its the same as UI5.

Put your vera LOCAL ip in and change out the XXXX's with the plugin number (I don't have this onkyo app installed or I could see what it is) while your on the local network and run this in a browser.

OK, got a chance to load the app. Here are my initial results.

1. getting "can't detect device" notice. still can control receiver. may be something going on with my system/network, will investigate further.
2. the volume sliders do not work. the volume + and - do work.
3. all other function buttons seem to work.
4. the macros work.
5. the playback works and displays the information.
6. the notification works, sent me an email when I powered on the system.
7. my icon for the Onkyo is a light bulb.
8. Vera mobile app for Android lists the Onkyo but has no clue what to do with it.

Looking great so far. Great job.

One more thing I forgot to mention, the buttons on the Control Settings don't differentiate between the set functions. Please see the screen captures below. The buttons on the Devices page highlight the current condition of the device as in "On" and "All Channel" using a green color as opposed to the gray color of the other functions. The buttons on the Control Settings page are all green so, you don't know what is happening.

OK, had some more time using the plugin with VeraLite @ 1.7.513. Here are my issues.

1. Vera gives error "can't detect device" no matter what I do. Have even tried uninstalling and re-installing plugin with same results.
2. Cannot set number of zones in Config window. Have tried 1, 2 and 3 but, comes back to "false" after a short period or reload.
3. Control page and Playback page icons do not change color to indicate what is happening.
4. Volume slide bars do not work.

Curious if anyone else is having the "can't detect device" issue. Not really sure what is causing it on my system at this point.

Well My TX-NR3007 seems to have a common problem with the HDMI Board going bad. I hear its 500 parts and Labor form a local ONKYO repair center.
This app never got setup to run full control with my older unit. Only some of the basics were working. Thinking now might be the time to upgrade but I don't want to pay anywhere near what I paid for this one.

Was looking at a TX-NR636 on amazon for 299.99 but thinking that might be taking the cheap route. Whats your guys take?

Older SAMSUNG LED 55" non 3D
I have energy C7 side towers
Energy CC3 center
Energy CR3 rears
SpeakerCraft Aim Wide 3 Surrounds

I could send it for fix, but still won't get this app to be able to flip on Pandora. This receiver is not 3d 4k or any of the new tech capable, but so far I don't have any of that.

Lots of posts about this with other plugins it comes down to requiring
Code: [Select]
luup.set_failure(false, lul_device)
You can try downloading the L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua file and placing this: -

Code: [Select]
luup.set_failure(false,  onkyoDevice)
before these two lines

Code: [Select]
DEBUG_MODE = 0
LOG_LEVEL = 1

and see how you go.

Tried your suggestion and it worked. No more "can't detect device". Kinda sad to think you have to resort to LUUP code to turn off the warning. Wish I could figure out the actual issue. Anyway, thanks for the tip.

I think you will be happy with the 626. I have the TX-NR717. Been happy with it since I got it with one exception. I have a home server and the 717 is very restrictive on what video and audio formats it will play from a DLNA device. You can do a Google search and find some references to others having issues. I hope the 626 and 636 have improved on that. I think you will find the 626 a good A/V Receiver for a great price.

I've owned a refurbed Onkyo TX-626 for over a year now, along with the Onkyo SKS-HT870 7.1 speaker system. Very happy with it, except for the handling of EDID after a while (not the only receiver that has issues), which forced me to buy a HDMI Detective for my HTPC. Ever since then it has been running like a dream.

DTS-MA 7.1 plays crystal clear on it, even at loud volume.


Could have used the HDMI pass-through on XBox One, but have it all controlled via Z-Wave. XBox One idle power usage is way to high for me for as often as I use it, especially with Kinect voice power control enabled.

CEC is supported on the receiver as well -- including pass-through -- with the XBox One configurable to turn on the receiver and/or TV via HDMI (using Z-Wave for that myself).

Well My TX-NR3007 seems to have a common problem with the HDMI Board going bad. I hear its 500 parts and Labor form a local ONKYO repair center.

I had the HDMI board die on my TX-NR808 (no sound), seems that is a pretty common issue with Onkyo across all their models. The board was replaced under warranty last year and so far holding in, but I do find when streaming Hulu+ that the sound doesn't come on sometimes and then you will hear the clicking of the relays and it finally kicks in. Do other brands have these HDMI issues? Curious for my next investment.

I do know that this amp and my VeraLite wrecked havoc on my network and when I put my Vera on a VLAN it was way better (first time I have been able to travel and not have my neighbor come over and restart the network because I could not view the cameras!) but that issue with Onkyo has been documented elsewhere.

Oh yes, I'm on the latest firmware. I thought it was interesting that they called out MCV specifically on the Onkyo FW update page.

I modified L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua as mentioned above... no help. Same result as before. "Onkyo Receiver : Device not available. Please make sure your receiver is turned on. Check to see if your IP Address hasn't changed." I can ping it from my laptop, which is on the same subnet as Vera.

Post by: brandoncreel on April 08, 2015, 09:47:14 pm
Kendad and the rest of the Onkyo users, I did release a small update that cleaned up some of the volume code but the slider still does not work. Im debating changing the default number of zones from 3 to 1. I think this would make it  easier for all as everyone has at least 1 zone. Furthermore, some receivers have a max of 2 zones. Let me know what you think.

brandoncreel,

I really like the idea of the default being one zone.  I am guessing most users have their systems setup that way.  I definitely would vote for that update. Any idea what it would take to get Vera Mobile to work with the plugin? Would be nice to check the power status of the receiver while not at home. Thanks for all the hard work. I realize MCV relies a lot on programmers like you to expand their product. I think we are all grateful you take the time to make the Vera more useful for all of us.

Hi,
I installed the plugin last version and after poking around this forum a bit, I was able to make it work. Every control works when I use it manually.
Now I want to make a scene where the receiver turns on, set volume to 50 and then set input to PC.
On UI7, using the normal way to do a scene the plugin doesn't show all the controls, only on/off, volume and some sound settings like stereo, etc, but doesn't show input, so I figured to do it with the advanced editor, and here it comes the question: to setup the input PC, do I have to use "SetInputTarget" and if this is correct what will be the value for PC (is an Onkyo TX-NR616)

Hello,

Just found this plugin a couple of days ago, and am trying to get it to work with a TX-NR636. I'm running into the problem I was just reading where "Can't detect device", and no functions work at all. I'm on the latest verison of UI7 and my receiver has the latest firmware.

I've set the receiver to a static IP, and I can reach it through my browser, so the network settings all seem ok.

Does anyone have any suggestions that i could try? I see a couple of other posts about problems getting the plugin to work with a 636, so I'm hoping someone has had some success.

Thanks.

Well, finally got it working. Even though it looked like port 60128 should have been open on my router, I had to set a UDP port forwarding for 60128 to 60128. Now the plugin works. Except that it won't let me change the number of zones, or prevent it from muting when the receiver is turned on.

I'm looking at manually tweaking the plugin so I can get that fixed.

So I have a total of 3 apps. Because I cannot save changes to the main app it will not let me set to only having two zones. I setup a couple alerts to test and they seem to be working. How do I get "Can't Detect Device" to go away, I have a static IP and even assigned mac address to try and help.

Ok. Congratulations on the wedding. Enjoy your honeymoon

This plug in is nice --- seems like the dashboard won't let us change the number of zones (to 1 in my case).

Maybe I need to dig into the luup files to see if I can adjust it?

I'm now married and have returned from my honeymoon.  Everything went well, thanks for asking.  Here are a few tidbits and updates:

1. There is an update (still numbered 2.1) coming out this week.  It will fix the "Can't detect device" error message.  And Debug level is default to 0.  (it used to say Dubug, and now correctly says Debug).
2. For those that have less than 3 zones, go into config, change the number of zones, hit back and then save.  Furthermore, then delete the 3rd zone as you would any other device. 
3.  FYI: Advanced -> Variables allows you to see what the variables are set to and override if need be.

In the future i'll be working on expanding the available features to be controlled by scenes.

brandoncreel, why would you use the same version number if you are distributing an update? How will we know if we received the update?

Post by: brandoncreel on July 22, 2015, 08:07:02 pm
The App Tab only shows one decimal place on the version. So even when I do an update and make it 2.15 it shows as version 2.1  and I don't want to make it version 2.2 for a small bug fix.

Considering we are now at FireFox version 39, and Chrome version 44 it is nice to see a developer still caring for the proper major.minor.point versioning when dealing with small fixes. But if the version number can not be shown to the user to verify they have it installed I must agree with the OP that it should not matter if a small fix leads to a higher version number, as the whole point of them is to show changes have been made.

Well, went to the Apps tab. Selected Onkyo Receiver (AVR) Details. Then, clicked update app. Now i get the following when I Reload Engine.

Onkyo Receiver (AVR)[38] : Lua Engine Failed to Load

Tried to uninstall and then reinstall to see if the issue cleared but, no luck. Thought I would mention here to see if anyone else had experienced the same.

to fix

Onkyo Receiver (AVR)[NNNN] : Lua Engine Failed to Load

The file L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua needs to have html markup changed.  search and replace the following

&amp;quot;  should be  "
&amp;lt; should be <
&amp;gt; should be >

I think those were the only ones that needed updating. 

then strip the ^M's from I_OnkyoReceiver1.xml and upload.

To get mine working I deleted everything from the UI, then any onkyo related file I could find on the file system (/etc/cmh-ludl/, no idea if that's necessary).  Did a fresh install from market in the UI7 panel (20150727), then download and alter the two files listed above.  up load them then in a few moments it hopefully it works.  "it worked for me"

In searching a Vera Lite box for files with Onkyo in the name, they all have a lzo extension.  I assume this is some manner of Lempel-Ziv compression.

Is there a resource that explains how to deal with modifying the files mentioned above?

I'm new to Vera so I assume it depends on the UI version you have but in UI7 you go to: Apps -> Develop apps -> Luup Files. That section allows you to download and upload luup files on the device easily. It has a file handler that appears to decompress them on the fly.

If you are interested in working on the device itself, check out this form post about lzo files http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=4541.0

Am I using the wrong parameter now?

I created a single scene with only this in it to test and nothing happens.

Any help is appreciated.

Edit: oops v 2.1 - made the above edits and still isn't working.  No response from the receiver at all.  My have not bee working correctly for a while.

@ALL hardware note:
For those having difficulty, first make sure your receiver is online.  I've had the HDMI board replaced on my unit before but it seems even the factory repair was faulty and has been recalled.  After setting up this plugin my receiver died AGAIN  >:(   Onkyo recall info: http://www.onkyousa.com/Support/service_info.php#

The HDMI board issue takes networking offline and annoying audio issues.  If your unit is covered in the link above, you may want consider the service.  It also extends the warranty until 12/31/2018.

@wesley69,  the "can't connect" message is 'fixed' from altering L_OnkyoReceiver1.lua.  Apparently that message is a ui7 sanity check.

The ^M's are a dos/micros~1 issue.  google around replacing line feeds for your situation will be more helpful than me.  I've seen notepad++ mentioned.

@Ikas - if yours is still not working see if you can find the pesky invisible ^M stuff.  I think that's all that's holding it up if the recent onkyo mobile app works.

@luvrajind - my first post, Reply #225, is from an initial install on UI7 from the web interface.  Once the plugin is downloaded/installed from the web interface I then had to download the files mentioned above from the vera web interface.  Edit them as noted, then upload them through the web interface and reload a few times.  There is no upnp/m-search for it, just enter the ip address of your receiver in the device's Advanced tab and reload a few more times.  That should get base functionality going but not all features may work without you modifying the plugin.

@all - from what I've read on onkyo's interface this plugin should at least be able to do the basics on all models, power on/off, volume, mute, switch inputs, etc.  Those base things seem to be the same but features and input naming vary among implementations.

MCV really needs to hire a dev/advocate/plugin person to do this well.  i've wasted hours on wemo devices that are not implemented and there's no maintainer there either.

hope that helps

@derrick - Are you saying that the repairs to the original HDMI board problem are faulty and needs to be sent back? Is this a generally known problem or in rare cases that you experienced ?  I do not see anything from Onkyo regarding the repair being recalled as well.

I stopped using internet and this plugin and my unit (sound and HDMI) wise has been ok now after thinking it was a goner. I posted awhile back where i had problems took it in for repair and they didn't find the issue. I brought it back and started using it with the plugin again until it acted it up. After that I disconnected everything and it started working fine and since I just left it without internet. No issues so far.

I revisited this plugin because I've reconfigured my AV upstairs. Today, I was able to get the plugin to install and, apparently, at least ping the receiver. This is the first time I've ever actually gotten the plugin installed without some Lua error. However... the buttons do nothing. No control over the receiver. It's online, I can ping it, but the plugin doesn't do anything. Also, I can't get to the Config tab... it just loads, and loads, and gets nowhere. I have two zones, and the plugin automatically creates three devices (for three zones) each time I restart Vera.

Any ideas?

Just updated from 1.1 on UI5, everything seems to work but what I was really really waiting for was a way to switch between A/B speakers from vera on my TX-8050. I know its possible because my roomie app can do it.

Or if anyone has any info on a command to send via luup I could deal with that. I tried to wireshark it but i don't really know exactly what I am looking for and I can't physically isolate my network stuff like that with ease.

Any help greatly appreciated!!!!
Title: Re: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: brandoncreel on September 11, 2015, 04:56:21 pm
You can not switch between A/B speakers other than physically hitting the button selector on the front of the receiver.  True story.  Trust me, I'd love to be able to do so and previously looked into it.  I even spoke to a tech at Onkyo asking them to add it to a future firmware release, and he said it's not going to happen.

All Onkyo App users,

I've been the developer for the last year and have failed to improve the app primarily due to lack of time to actually work on it. I want to openly apologize to the community as I should have released the reigns many months ago. That being said, if anyone has the time and skills and wants to take  over the app for further development, please PM me.

Sincerely,

For anyone who cares, A and B speaker levels can be toggled by EventGhost (windows) along with everything this plug in does as well (i think).

So using the webserver and onkyo plug ins for eventghost, all you need to do is create a scene to send an http request to the eventghost socket and its good.

To turn on A speakers type SPA in command box in the EG plugin, SPB for B. MVL20 for master volume 20. PWR00 and PWR01 for on and off. Theres more but you can google.

Id just like to say how awesome it is to flip on the light switch for the bathroom and music start playing...

ON A SIDE NOTE... I FOUND THAT ONKYO KNOWS THEIR NIC CARDS ARE GARBAGE AND ARE REPLACING SOME FREE OF CHARGE, SHIPPING INCLUDED. WHILE THIS SUCKS ITS BETTER THAN BUYING A NEW ONE. ONKYO HAS A WEBSITE SET UP SO YOU CAN MATCH YOUR SN AND EITHER SEND THE UNIT IN FOR REPAIRS OR GIVE YOU A CREDIT IF YOU QUALIFY ON A NEW PURCHASE. I DIDNT QUALIFY BUT HAVE A LOWER END STEREO RECIEVER. OTHER ISSUES ARE ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS SYSTEM, SEEMS LIKE MULTIPLE RECALL TERRITORY BUT OF COARSE THEY WONT NOTIFY YOU, YOU NEED TO DIG FOR IT.

Have Onkyo TX-NR717 and VeraPlus with firmware 1.7.1754. Been using "Onkyo Receiver (AVR)" plugin for several weeks now. Have the modified files so I do not get the "Can't Detect Device" message. Yesterday starting seeing the message out of the blue. Checked today and found the IP in the "Onkyo Receiver (AVR)" device was missing. No idea why the IP would simply disappear but, that is what happened. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Had a lot of strange things happen with my VeraLite and UI7 but, don't remember an IP simply disappearing.

the comm failiure issue is not really new
i have had it on my vera lite for the last 1-1.5 years
and now on my vera plus

it happens when the luup engine is restarted too many times back toback in a short time
things that would do that are
- multiple app updates/installs
- aggressively working on scenes
- forcing luup to reload

thequickest way to fix it has always been to just go to the onkyo device
advanced
variables

you will see CommFailure and CommFailure time
both will have a value
clear them both
save
reload luup

again
this only becomes an issue on multiple luup reloads

its fine after that

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/edom-onkyo-remote/jhcfeodahaajnfoifcmejindamjlbadp
I asked if the developer would convert it to iOS app since the onkyo app doesn't offer control of A/B speakers.  Or maybe someone can continue to develop the onkyo plugin for Vera and add A/B speaker control to it.

possibly by editing the correct value in the "Number of zones:" where by default "false" is given. I tried to put "1" there but that doesn't help and changes to false again...

Hello,

The Bluetooth input selector seems to be missing from the plugin. It definitely shows up on the Android app, and I confirmed that once I connect a Bluetooth device to the Onkyo, I have to also change the input setting via the remote to Bluetooth.

I'm wondering if it's possible to switch to Bluetooth via this plugin?

You have to edit J_OnkyoConfig.js or J_OnkyoConfig_UI7.js when ui7. Find the line:
Code: [Select]
if (zoneCount === undefined) { zoneCount = 3; } Probably have to change it to 1 for only the main device:

It seems that the Vera UI uses the service: urn:onkyo-com:serviceId:Receiver1 with function SetVolumeTarget
and the IOS App uses urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl1 with function SetVolume

Is there a way I can adjust the volume with the IOS app and still use the Vera UI to?

For anyone who wants to control their volume with the slider in the Homewave App (ios) you need to fix this line

File: I_OnkyoReceiver1.xml
Line: 703
This line
Code: [Select]
            <serviceId>urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl</serviceId>

Should be

            <serviceId>urn:upnp-org:serviceId:RenderingControl1</serviceId>

I have a Sony XBR65X850C smart TV (android OS) and onkyo tx-nr545 receiver and based on the old topic below, am I able to turn on the TV via the hdmi cable and this onkyo plugin when I switch to that input or via some other method?  If so, what exactly do I need to do?  I am a newbie so please be very specific.

I am able to get my onkyo to work with this plugin but havent tested all the functions (just power/volume) for now.

Is creating a macro viable?

Thanks!
Steve

The Onkyo receiver has the capability to control the tv through an hdmi cable.  The Onkyo receiver calls it RIHD and at least my TV (Visio Mseries) calls it CEC.  My TV can turn on and off my Onkyo receiver through CEC.  I saw the option in the Onkyo App to turn off the TV from the receiver.  Has anyone got this to work?  Onkyo says it is possible.

If you would like I can add a command in the Onkyo Plugin to turn the tv off or on.  I just need testers to try it out.  I wanted to add this functionality but I could never get my TV to turn off from the Onkyo App.

Maybe you don't necessarily need this plugin. I think both devices support ARC
http://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-audio-return-channel-arc/ (http://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-audio-return-channel-arc/)

If they don't maybe you could use the ping plugin to check if the TV is switched on. But some tv always respond to a ping request even when off because the network card is always on.

I haven't seen a possibility for the Android app 'Tasker' to be installed on a tv but I could be wrong.

My guess is that you turn your receiver on and off with Alexa using an URL.
http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/UI_Simple (http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/UI_Simple)
The same way you can change te channel and volume.

Do I just use the bold text below? 

See the attachment for manually adding something to the HA bridge.  Is that where I add it?

Here is a url example of me running a scene to switch inputs, but do I need to create a scene to Mute the receiver?  If I just want to make use the switch dropdown field, what should my url be to mute?

No that's not the URL. The URL that mutes the Onkyo in your case would be:
http://192.168.1.249:3480/data_request?id=action&DeviceNum=386&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:Volume1&action=Mute (http://192.168.1.249:3480/data_request?id=action&DeviceNum=386&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:Volume1&action=Mute)

I'm looking at your screenshot but I don't understand the dim url. The Onkyo plugin doesn't have the dim service or is device 34 not your Onkyo?

Hi, I am a newbie to Vera (UI17) and am trying to get the Onkyo plugin sorted. It's working but most of the input parameters are wrong (ie Tuner in Vera switches receiver to CD) so wondering which file I should edit to correct. Also how to add others and where I can locate the correct input numbers for my receiver.

I have an Onkyo TX-NR646 and have loaded the following files
device_file: D_OnkyoReceiver1.xml
Impl_file: I_OnkyoReceiver1.xml
device_json: D_OnkyoReceiver1_UI7.json

Dimming is part of the Echo bridge.  It should be blank unless you're passing it % parameters for volume control, for example.

I think the easiest way is to edit the D_OnkyoReceiver1_UI7.json if you using the Vera UI to control the Onkyo.

Code: [Select]
                    "Command": {
                            "Service": "urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:InputSelection1",
                            "Action": "DiscreteinputHDTV",
                            "Parameters": []
                    }

Switch the Action parameters with the correct ones.
Title: Re: Onkyo Receiver Plugin
Post by: admanb on November 13, 2016, 11:05:36 pm
As alansmithee noted, the easiest way to control this receiver using Amazon Echo is using Luup Requests (http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Requests (http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Requests)).

I have this software (https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge (https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge)) running on my NAS server (although you could put it on any computer in your network), to listen for Alexa commands and forward them to your Vera.

In the ha-bridge software interface, you can set up Vera devices by ID, for example my Onkyo TX-NR646 is device ID 18 in the Vera UI. So I simply need to set up a device in the ha-bridge UI, with an "On" URL as follows:
http://{VERA_IP}:{VERA_PORT}/data_request?id=lu_action&output_format=json&DeviceNum=18&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:InputSelection1&action=DiscreteinputDVI
Just be sure to change the IP and port to your Vera IP/Port (default port is 3480) and the device from 18 to your device ID.

The easiest way to get the correct URL to switch receiver inputs is to install the Onkyo app in the Vera UI, open the control panel, open your browser's network inspector, and copy the URL that is sent when you click on the buttons in the browser. Paste that URL into the On button configuration for a device in the ha-bridge interface, and then use the Alexa app to search for new Smart Home devices.

As long as your ha-bridge is up and running, with the devices correctly configured in it, you should be able to detect the device and be off and running!

In my setup, I have an Atari 2600 connected to the Onkyo receiver modulated using a VCR, connected to a receiver input I labeled "Atari". I set up a device in the bridge called Atari, and now I can say "Alexa, turn on Atari", and the echo will switch the receiver input to the one my VCR is on, and I'm a kid again!  :P HTH!

A few seconds after I start playing a song, the Onkyo receiver stops playback and jumps back to the server overview where the TwonkyMedia ist listed.

Post by: admanb on March 29, 2017, 01:12:42 am
Finally found some time to play around with this plugin and see if I could get it to do a few things. Am starting to get the lay of the land...

Tried to tackle the most recent problem, posted by carracc, and was successful, thanks to https://github.com/miracle2k/onkyo-eiscp/issues/35. That thread has a note about how to receive the latest ISCP spec, and I sent off an email, so if I'm successful in getting those, I'll share them with the group as it looks like others are wanting to work on this too. Might set up a github repo for us with the app files, so we can do some version control, but that's for another day...

Here are instructions to be able to switch to the Bluetooth input (assuming you've already installed the Onkyo plugin):
1. From your Vera home screen, click Apps, Develop Apps, Luup files
2. Download the attached files and drag/drop them into the box near the top of the page. Click Done when each has uploaded.
3. Click on Devices, your Onkyo, Advanced, and note the device id at the top of the page (also next to "id" down below)
4. In a browser, load this url: http://{vera_ip}:{vera_port_default_is_3480}/data_request?id=lu_action&output_format=json&DeviceNum={id_from_step_3}&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:InputSelection1&action=DiscreteinputBluetooth
5. Enjoy!

I haven't yet added a button to the UI for this, but that should be pretty easy. This method works well if, like me (see my other post on this below), you're using an Amazon Echo with a bridge. I can now switch the input to Bluetooth by saying "Alexa, turn on Bluetooth". Am also starting to test out the new Vera Alexa Beta integration to see if I can ditch the bridge altogether, and so far with the lights, things are working great. Will try it out with the Onkyo soon...

Will also see if I can find some time to resolve the errors (e.g. Can't detect device) and add a few other features (update the input mappings, etc).

EDIT: @zoot1612 and @kendad identified a fix for the "Can't detect device" error earlier in this thread: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,17811.msg221898.html#msg221898 (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,17811.msg221898.html#msg221898)

Hi Stu, unfortunately, the plugin is not in a good state and doesn't work for most people's Onkyo receivers at this point. Changing the port via the GUI is probably the least of the problems here.

I have used this plugin with great success and have two Onkyo receivers setup in my home to switch inputs, turn on or off, adjust volume, sound mode, etc

I can verify it works with my HT-R360 and TX-NR509  - The biggest issue I've seen with getting the onkyo's to work is the network itself.  I have 4-5 gigabit switches and for some reason my Onkyo and Vera won't talk to each other if the Onkyo is connected to a certain switch. If I move the Onkyo  into another switch (TP-Link 8 port gigabit) I can see it with my vera.  Keep in mind I have a FLAT network, so there is no NAT issue etc, it's got to do with a switch not wanting to talk to the network controller (NIC) in the onkyo

Try connecting the Vera and Onkyo to the same router or on the same switch and you should be able to get it to work if you have an Onkyo  Network enabled receiver.  Make sure you also turn on Ethernet, and network standby.  Before you start to pull your hair out try your smartphone or windows app to try and install an Onkyo Remote software and search on that.  Once you can see the Onkyo in the app on your phone or computer, then Vera should see it.   

Good luck!
