[PLUGIN] Onkyo Controller

Yes, I can use my receiver with the iPhone app. :stuck_out_tongue:
I guess I am wondering what I should put in the settings - “TX-8050”?

Sorry also for the delayed response. My house was under construction so there wasn’t any gear running for a while. :slight_smile:

I just installed the latest version of the plugin and the “model” field does exactly what I’d expect it to do.

thanks for adding that!

Is the TX-8050 not auto-discovered by the plugin? (My DTC-9.8 was not auto discovered, so I need to manually put in the IP address and model of the receiver in order for the eiscp control to work properly.)

If it is not being auto-discovered, put in the IP address and model.

Based on some hints found here:

Perhaps try “8050” as a model if “TX-8050” doesn’t work?

No worries at all! :slight_smile:

Hi Kyle, sorry about the slow response (I’m terrible and I often forget to check the forums). :open_mouth:

I’d have thought the TX-8050 would be auto-discoverable? If not, does it show up in the list of receivers?

Otherwise as Swinokur says, try putting the IP in (the port should be fine), and see if it works. :slight_smile: If not maybe “TX-8050” or “8050” as the model?

If not I might need to see the logs for if there’s an obvious error?

The worst part about this plugin is not being able to check all the different amps myself, and just hoping it works for everyone else. :laughing:

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…
