Onkyo Binding

This binding integrates the Onkyo AV receivers.

Introduction

Binding should be compatible with Onkyo AV receivers which support ISCP (Integra Serial Control Protocol) over Ethernet (eISCP).

Supported Things

This binding supports only one thing: The Onkyo AV Receiver. All supported Onkyo devices are registered as an audio sink in the framework.

Discovery

This binding can discover the supported Onkyo AV Receivers. At the moment only the following models are supported:

  • TX-NR414
  • TX-NR509
  • TX-NR515
  • TX-NR525
  • TX-NR535
  • TX-NR555
  • TX-NR535
  • TX-NR616
  • TX-NR626
  • TX-NR636
  • TX-NR646
  • TX-NR656
  • TX-NR717
  • TX-NR727
  • TX-NR747
  • TX-NR818
  • TX-NR828
  • TX-NR838

Binding Configuration

The binding can auto-discover the Onkyo AVRs present on your local network. The auto-discovery is enabled by default. To disable it, you can create a file in the services directory called onkyo.cfg with the following content:

org.openhab.onkyo:enableAutoDiscovery=false

This configuration parameter only controls the Onkyo AVR auto-discovery process, not the openHAB auto-discovery. Moreover, if the openHAB auto-discovery is disabled, the Onkyo AVR auto-discovery is disabled too.

The binding has the following configuration options, which can be set for “binding:onkyo”:

Parameter Name Description Required
callbackUrl Callback URL URL to use for playing notification sounds, e.g. http://192.168.0.2:8080 no

Thing Configuration

The Onkyo AVR thing requires the ip address and the port to access it on. In the thing file, this looks e.g. like

Model specific

onkyo:TX-NR818:myOnkyo [ipAddress="192.168.1.100", port="60128"]

or

Generic model

onkyo:onkyoAVR:myOnkyo [ipAddress="192.168.1.100", port="60128"]

Optionally you can specify the refresh interval by refreshInterval parameter.

onkyo:onkyoAVR:myOnkyo [ipAddress="192.168.1.100", port="60128", refreshInterval=30]

Maximum volume level can also be configured by volumeLimit parameter. This prevent setting receiver volume level too high, which could damage your speakers or receiver.

onkyo:onkyoAVR:myOnkyo [ipAddress="192.168.1.100", port="60128", volumeLimit=50]

Binding then automatically scale the volume level in both directions (100% = 50 = 100%).

The Onkyo AVR supports the following channels (some channels are model specific):
