Pioneer VSX-LX101 Support

I am trying to use the pioneeravr bindings with my VSX-LX101, which I noted isn’t on the supported list. I’ve used the PaperUI to add the device as a “Thing” and used this site to create an “items” file. Mostly this was a cut-n-paste effort with me substituting in the name I game my receiver. That took me a couple of tries to get right - I figured it’s right now, because /var/log/openhab2/openhab.log no longer gives me an error about an unknown device. However, when I try an of the options - nothing happens on the receiver and no error is shown in the log. Does this suggest the pioneer has removed this feature? Love some insight. Thanks,
