Hi this is my first contribution to Openremote, so please let me know if I should post it on some other place or any thing like that.

I think this feature has ben requested in ORCJAVA-243.

Many Onkyo receivers has a ethernet connection and it is possible to control the receiver with a simple TCP/IP based protocol. You can turn it on and off, switch input, control the volume etc. This patch lets you do all that via Openremote.

The Designer code is based on Designer_2_13_9_Rosemary_20130330
The Controller code is based on Controller_2_0_2

Link to patch
Excel file with all Onkyo Commands

Use at own risk. I will not take any responsibility if this software would damage your receiver, loudspeakers or your ears.

(There is a setting in the receiver that limits the max volume you can set when using EISCP. And if you want to turn the receiver on you need to configure the receiver to listen to TCP connections when it is in standby)

Call me utterly stupid, but how do I go about implementing this patch? I'm running OR on a Raspberry Pi much to my satisfaction, but would LOVE to add support for my Onky 929....

Thanks for showing interest in my patch!

Unfortunately it is kind of hard if you are not a developer. But you need to follow the instructions on to install the designer and controller from source.

Once you have a working version from source you can apply the patches by running:
cd <project root>
patch -p 1 < patchfile

If this seems to tricky another option is to try to get Juha to include this into the next releases of OpenRemote

Hello Mårten,
Thanks a lot for this contribution.

I'll take a look and see how we can integrate this.

Thats great!

I have signed a developer agreement, but I am not sure what happens next.

Hi Mårten,

Thank you for your contribution. I'm a new openremote user, but I succesfully install your patch on a fresh compiled build of Openremote and deployed on a QNAP device. Thank you all for openremote tutorials (especially : this one)

Now my question : If i'm right, your patch don't manage sensor ? Do you have an improved version of this patch managing sensor ?

Thank your for your answer.

Best regards

I am sorry, but I have not done any more work on this patch.

Out of curiosity, what is it you would like to achieve with using the receiver as a sensor?

Hi Mårten,

The need is realy simple: Get power status and mute status, to be able to create OpenRemote switch for Power On/Off and Mute On/Off.

I achieve to do this using openremote command base on command line (but I get the problem: the answer of the receiver is not necessary received by the good thread that send the command, for exemple, when openremote controller send 2 commands, first for power status, and secondely for mute status, mute status command will receive both receiver answers... Conclusion: commande line is not the good solution for status managent.)

That make sense.

I checked the patch, and I have not even started on the sensor part. Sorry
