Control Yamaha Musiccast Receiver

Post by gerardwr » Sunday 19 March 2017 17:44

I have a Yamaha network receiver Yamaha MCR-N470 with the Musiccast feature, that I want to control with Domoticz.

The Yamaha plugin on this forum is not compatible with Musiccast receivers, due to a different protocol.

The Musiccast API is available here:
https://github.com/neutmute/swimbait/tr ... doc/yamaha

Based on the API description i did a quick hack using a Domoticz Selector switch. This works, I can switch the receiver On and Standby, and set a volume level.

Please note that the buttons for specific radio stations have not been defined yet.

Some pics below with detailed information.
