Using 1.0 denon binding in openhab 2.0

Does anyone have the denon openhab 1.x working on openhab 2?
I have tied to mix paper UI with the openhab conf files as suggested in the following instructions but was unsuccessful

Thanks for any help.

I am using the denon binding with OH2. It is working pretty well. Do note that you still need the denon.cfg file in conf/services to specify specifics for your receiver. You will not be able to configure it from PaperUI as it is a 1.x binding.

I installed with the Beta Repository not the snapshot release.
After my installation I did not get a conf directory.
I did however have a /etc/openhab2 directory which had the following sub directories;
html icons items persistence rules scripts services sitemaps things transform

The services directory had a denon.cfg file
pi@raspberrypi:/etc/openhab2 $ ls *
html:
index.html readme.txt

icons:
classic

items:
denon.items readme.txt

Content of denon.items
Switch DenonPower “Power” {denon=“avr2000:#PW”}

persistence:
readme.txt

rules:
readme.txt

scripts:
readme.txt

services:
addons.cfg denon.cfg readme.txt runtime.cfg

Content of denon.cfg

IP adress of the Denon receiver instance

avr2000.host=192.168.1.160

sitemaps:
denon.sitemap readme.txt

Conent of denon.sitemap
sitemap denon label="Home’
{
Frame label=“Main Zone”
{
Switch item=DenonPower
}
}

things:
readme.txt

transform:
de.map en.map readme.txt

I then created a /etc/openhab2/items/denon.items and a /etc/openhab2/items/denon.sitermap
This is what I get form the log file

Would you mind sending me your config files?

Thanks,

I do get exceptions on startup as well. I think there is even a ticket for them, but the binding ends up working. My .cfg is pretty simple. I have 2 devices using the binding, so two entries.

# denon:<instance>.<property>=value

# IP adress of the Denon receiver instance
denon:sr7005.host=10.x.x.x
denon:nr1606.host=10.x.x.x

# Optional, set connection method for receiving updates. Can be http or telnet. 
# Denon receivers only support one concurrent telnet connection, so use http if 
# you have any other app using the telnet connection. Default = telnet
denon:sr7005.update=http
denon:nr1606.update=http

# Optional, this sets the refresh interval (in milliseconds) for all instances 
# if you're using the http connection method. Default = 5000 
#denon:refresh=5000

then the corresponding .items (partial for 1 of the devices)

Switch DenonPower           "Marantz 7005 Power"          <receiver>      (ALL,AVR,bs,bsA)        {denon="sr7005#PW"}
Switch DenonMute            "sr7005 Mute [%s]"            <receiver>      (ALL,AVR)               {denon="sr7005#MU"}
String DenonSurround        "sr7005 Surround Mode [%s]"	  <receiver>      (ALL,AVR)               {denon="sr7005#SURROUNDMODE"}
String DenonTrack	    "sr7005 Track playing [%s]"   <receiver>      (ALL,AVR)               {denon="sr7005#TRACK"}
Dimmer DenonVolume          "sr7005 Volume [%.1f]"        <receiver>      (ALL,AVR)               {denon="sr7005#MV"}
String DenonInput           "sr7005 Input [%s]"           <receiver>      (ALL,AVR)               {denon="sr7005#INPUT"}

my sitemap simply uses the AVR group

Group AVR "Audio/Video" <receiver> (bs)

Thanks for help, I’ve gotten a little further. Now my denon.items is parsed correctly.
Also a couple of files were owned by root and I fixed that.
Now I am getting an error that the denon.things file can’t be read, all it has is the ip address.
Do you have a denon.things file?

Thanks,

I do not use a denon.things file. Things are introduced in 2.0 and this is a 1.x binding, so you do not need one.

The best I was able to do was test through the rest api and I was getting a success response for both DenonPower On and Off and I was able to query the state but the receiver didn’t actually turn on. So looks like I am stuck.

Thanks for the assistance.

One more question, once you have everything connected do you see Denon items under Control?
I do not. So how did you get to actually execute a command did you use a script? If yes how did you execute the script?

Thanks for the help.

Control (assuming you are using PaperUI) is kind of messy with all my devices and doesn’t do a good job of laying things out, so I tend not to use it. I do use the BasicUI mostly, with sitemaps and groups as mentioned above. As long as you put all your items for a device in the same group (groups are in parenthesis () ), then you can use a single line to display them in BasicUI (or ClassicUI as it uses the same sitemaps).

Thanks, I see that using the classic UI is how it is supposed to work.

I am trying to get the Denon binding to work with 2.0 snapshot, no luck with either a X1000 or X2100W.

Followed this thread in detail, including various permutations. Appears to parse ok, but no items show up in Basic, Classic or Paper UI.

I assume it is ok that the Denon binding (extension) does not show up in Paper UI, even when installed?

Stumped, anybody working on this binding?

Because it is a 1.x binding, you need to do the configuration in .items files. Are you saying you have done that, and still nothing is showing up?

I created a very… very basic 2.0 version of the driver which allows you to turn the received on/off and adjust volume and change the main zone input. All you have to do is provide the IP address of the receiver.
I am not a programmer so the code is pretty basic. I can send you the source code if you want.

Im am very interested in the 2.0 Denon binding, too. Could you send me the source code.

Sorry it took so long to post back.
I’ve called the binding esmadja
If you aren’t familiar with the development environment this isn’t going to be too useful.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to help too much.
You should look at the following tutorial. You should be able to figure out where each file belongs.

It there any chance we would see a working denon binding in openhab 2?

Would also like to be able to control my Denon AVR with openHab 2…

I can’t get the binding works on my OH2, I tried telnet and http mode both with no joy,
I guess it’s due to i am using the old model (AVR-4308), I finally get on/off by make shell script as below and exec the script to active the action

#!/bin/bash
echo -ne $1\r| nc -w1 192.xxx.xxx.xxx 23

change the xxx to your denon ip.

Also spent hours in getting the binding to work… with partial success… Telnet doesn’t work for me at all, only http (Marantz SR5008). And only a number of commands / status queries work.
Hope someone will continue to work on this Denon binding.

Hi Jim,

I wonder if you have a hint for me.
I’ve been struggling all day to find a way to make the Denon binder work for me.

I’ve edited the denon.cfg file according to the guidelines and your example.
I’ve modified the addons.cfg:
package = expert
remote = true
legacy = true
binding = denon1
ui = basic

I’ve also edited my items and sitemap, and the items shows correctly on the sitemap, with the selected controls etc.

However it seems like the denon.cfg is never read by the system, which expect the IP address to be 192.168.1.70, which is given in the default example in the file.
Mine looks like this:
#.=value

# IP adress of the Denon receiver instance
# avr2000.host=192.168.1.70
denon:avr2000.host=192.168.0.26

# Optional, set connection method for receiving updates. Can be http or telnet. 
# Denon receivers only support one concurrent telnet connection, so use http if 
# you have any other app using the telnet connection. Default = telnet
#avr2000.update=http
denon:avr2000.update=http

Do you or anyone else in this thread have a clou?
