    Default DENON AVR4306, how to control it ?

    I will buy Denon AVR4306.
    I would like to be able to control this device and to receive the functions state.
    I use Girder 4 and Netremote 2.
    I use Global Caché for IR with Girder for my others devices.

    I read in the various thread that we can use :
    - Generic IP with Girder or Netremote ? Do you have examples? GML Files or CCF Files ? How we can do that ?
    - Control denon 4306 through the GC unit ? With the plugin by Rob H ? How I can do that ?

    If it's possible I'll prefer to use GIP....

    Somebody can help me ?

    My Denon plugin can be used for this - even using GIP, but you have to create the plugin instance in code rather than using the more convenient serial plugin settings page.

    Something like this should work :-

    Code:
    Denon = serial.devices["Denon AVR"].New('myhost:myport')
    where myhost is the host name or IP address of the Denon and myport is port number of the Denon (which I believe is 23, the telnet port).

    Put that code in a scripting action and try running it - let me know if you get any errors from it.

    This should be a little easier in G5 when I've rewritten the Denon plugin to use the new transport classes.

    Thanks Rob,

    But not sure to understand well...
    Do you have a step by step explanation?

    Are you using Girder 4 or 5?

    Let's assume for the moment that your Denon is at IP address 192.168.0.40 - create a scripting action in your GML containing the following line

    Code:
    Denon = serial.devices["Denon AVR"].New('192.168.0.40:23')
    (Obviously you would use the real IP address rather than 192.168.0.40)

    Open the Lua console (F7) then save and run that scripting action.

    If it doesn't produce any errors, try typing the following in the box at the bottom of the Lua console :-

    Code:
    Denon:PowerOff()
    The Denon should power down.

    Then try

    Code:
    Denon:PowerOn()
    If you get any error messages then please post them here.

    I bought the 4306, I should receive it for this WE ;-)
    I think I understood the method. For each order, I must add this first line.
    Exemple.
    Code:
    Denon = serial.devices["Denon AVR"].New('myhost:myport')
    Denon:PowerOff()
    Ok, concerning the plugin, I do that...
    - copy Denon3805.lua to ..Girder\plugins\serial
    - open Girder, goto File->settings->plugin settings->plugins and enable the generic serial plugin.

    But how I can configure the serial port?
    I selected the Serial tab of the settings page, and after, what can I do ?

    No serial port - this receiver uses an ethernet connection.

    No, not quite - you only create the Denon device once in a separate scripting action, and drag a ScriptEnable event from the logger to it so that it starts with Girder. And you replace the myhost with the IP address of the Denon, and myport with 23.

    That's correct.

    You don't configure the serial port - as Mike says this will be using the ethernet port.

    Thanks Mike and Rob.
    I was a little bit confused with this plugin and the serial port.
    It's what I believed to understand…

    I hope to receive this Amplifier and to make tests…
    Thanks for your support.
