Pioneer AVR Binding

Binding configuration

The binding can auto-discover the Pioneer 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 pioneeravr.cfg with the following content:

#Put your configuration here
org.openhab.pioneeravr:enableAutoDiscovery=false

This configuration parameter only control the PioneerAVR auto-discovery process, not the openHAB auto-discovery. Moreover, if the openHAB auto-discovery is disabled, the PioneerAVR auto-discovery is disabled too.

Thing configuration

In the things folder, create a file called pioneeravr.things (or any other name) and configure your AVRs inside.

The binding can control AVRs through the local network (ipAvr/ipAvrUnsupported thing type) or through a Serial connection (serialAvr) if the AVR is directly connected to your computer.

Configuration of ipAvr/ipAvrUnsupported:

  • address: the hostname/ipAddress of the AVR on the local network. (mandatory)
  • tcpPort: the port number to use to connect to the AVR. (optional, default to 23)

Configuration of serialAvr:

  • serialPort: the name of the serial port on your computer. (mandatory)

Example:

pioneeravr:ipAvr:vsx921IP [ address="192.168.1.25", tcpPort="23" ]
pioneeravr:serialAvr:vsx921Serial [ serialPort="COM9" ]

Channels

  • power: power On/Off the AVR. Receive power events.
  • volumeDimmer: Increase/Decrease the volume on the AVR or set the volume as %. Receive volume change events (in %).
  • volumeDb: Set the volume of the AVR in dB (from -80.0 to 12 with 0.5 dB steps). Receive volume change events (in dB).
  • mute: Mute/Unmute the AVR. Receive mute events.
  • setInputSource: Set the input source of the AVR. See input source mapping for more details. Receive source input change events with the input source ID.
  • displayInformation: Receive display events. Reflect the display on the AVR front panel.

Listening Modes

The Listening Mode is set by user to instruct the AVR how to treat the audio signal and do upscaling, downscaling and amplification. This settings corresponds to the settings made with the remote control or front panel. What the AVR actually does with each setting/input-signal-combination can be read out using the Playing Listening Mode channel.
