I am currently writing a Luup plug-in to control Denon receivers.
I know this is something that has been mentioned previously on the forum, but it doesn’t look like anyone actually implemented it:
On that thread guessed mentioned his plug-in for Onkyo receivers. I took a look at his code and it looks pretty straightforward to do the same thing for a Denon.
I have a AVR-3808ci (which I love by the way!) and so currently I am focusing on supporting that. Assuming I get this working I am quite happy to help with other Denon receivers if anyone else is interested. As guessed mentioned in the thread above the Denon doesn’t have a toggle mute - just a mute on or mute off. I’ll have to play with that a bit.
In fact, there are a ton of things you can do with the Denon serial protocol, so this might take me a while to get fully implemented!
I enjoy picking up new programming languages, and Lua looks pretty straightforward. Should be fun!
One last question, how do you get hosted on code.mios.com’s trac server?
