I have a Denon AVR-X1700H and as media server I use Emby. My goal is to control the AVR with OpenHAB3 (currently running 3.2) to stream a predefined playlist.
For now I only installed the UPnP control and it could already find the Emby Server. However the AVR was not found so I tried to add it manually. To find out the udn I went into Windows explorer → Network → and the AVR was found there → Properties shows a uuid. Am I right that this uuid is the udn?
Anyway I used this uuid to manually connect in openHAB but I get this error message:
No connection Id’s set for UPnP device with UDN
Any advice would be very appreciated.
If your Denon receiver could be driven by UPnP, I assume that the UPnP binding would have discovered it. So the most probable hypothesis is that is not possible, not supported by the receiver.
Makes sense, but I mean I can use Emby to stream data to the AVR without any issue. Also I can do it using the HEOS APP. It recognizes both the AVR and Emby as the streaming server. So I thought it must be upnp then.
Anyway I tried with an android app and - actually it gets detected as upnp device but not as media renderer. So you are right its probably not controllable using the upnp control binding. Maybe it’s possible with the HEOS binding. But I don’t really understand how to get the playlist from Emby.
Has anyone experience with HEOS binding and an external media server like Emby or Plex?
I have now installed HEOS Binding and asked in the support thread on how to add something to the queue. Heos (Denon) support - #400 by April_Wexler
