[PLUGIN] Onkyo Controller

This pull request was accepted into the main volumio-plugins project today it seems, so it should be available as an update/fresh install through the volumio UI now. :slight_smile:

Risking the possibility to come off as being entitled, but would it be possible to add the possibility of starting Zone 2 of the Onkyo receiver? Looking at the node-eiscp package, this should be possible and relatively straight-forward (and I wouldn’t mind doing it myself/helping if I knew were to start). In any case, thanks for plugin, it works great!

Interesting. :slight_smile: I wasn’t aware of this.

My amplifier doesn’t support it, :frowning: so I don’t think I’ll be able to give it a go reliably and test it. But please feel free to look at it and make a pull request:

github.com/orderoftheflame/volu … yo_control

I’d be more than happy to pull your change in if you do get a chance to look into it. :slight_smile:

Hi @orderoftheflame

Is the Onkyo Controller plugin something that will be added to the Ver 3 plugin collection ?

Hiya, thanks for the interest.

I’m afraid I’m pretty far out the loop with Volumio development, and haven’t much idea what’s involved with the porting from v2 to v3. :confused:

I’d love to take a look, but I just don’t find the time with work being so busy for me. But I’ve no problem if anyone else wants to pick it up. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for your fast reply

I’m afraid I’m not the guy for that :worried: , but I also hope someone takes care of this masterpiece, a very useful piece to make a seamless system for us Onkyo users

Maybe we can ask @balbuze ?
He has a record for not leaving a challenge untouched :smiley:

Please refer to this post: volumio-3-plugin-migration-status
The authors of the plugins are requested to upgrade, whether and when they will, we do not know.


Out of curiosity, did you try installing it manually?

That would give everyone a hint if it’s a “simple” or “complex” migration…

Well have given that a thought , will make a clean ver 3 install and test this weekend

Will report later


Hello. As a new user of Volumia Primo, I might ask stupid questions. Can this plugin be installed on Volumio Primo? I own an Onkyo 656 and I would like to try this plugin :). thank you for answer

Hiya, thanks for the interest.

I can’t see any reason why it shouldn’t work.

I don’t have a Primo though, so all I can do is suggest trying and report back. :slightly_smiling_face:

That would be a great thing. It is not in the Primo plugin list. Can it be installed securely manually?

Hi @orderoftheflame and others

Is this still correct for manual install?

  1. Connect via ssh using putty or the command line ssh volumio@volumio.local
  2. Download and install the plugin using the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/orderoftheflame/volumio-plugins.git
cd volumio-plugins/plugins/miscellanea/onkyo_control
npm install
volumio plugin install

For Volumio 2 it would be correct. I’m afraid I don’t know if that process has changed for Volumio 3.

Is your Primo using Volumio 2 or 3?

I’m not sure how the Primo’s installation differers, but I’d have thought it should appear under the Miscellaneous tab in plugins for 2.

I’m still a bit out of the loop on Volumio 3, some other kind forum users are experimenting to see if it can be installed manually or if it needs any changes.

Yes, the process will be the same on Volumio 3 as well…


I’m currently using the latest build of Volumio 3. Thanks for the help, gentlemen.I’ll try when I’m home

I would like to thank everyone who helped me with the installation of the plugin. Of course, thanks a lot to the author of the plugin. Everything works great.

Last build Volumio 3.
Volumio Primo device.

Thank you so much and happy holidays :slight_smile:

Fantastic news! Thanks both.

Does anyone know what process is needed to get the plugin into v3 as a readily available plugin now?
