Denon AVR Network Receivers


The denonavr platform allows you to control a Denon Network Receivers from Home Assistant. It might be that your device is supported by the Denon platform.

Supported devices:

  • Denon AVR-X1300W
  • Denon AVR-X2000
  • Denon AVR-X2100W
  • Denon AVR-X4100W
  • Denon AVR-1912
  • Denon AVR-2312CI
  • Denon AVR-3311CI
  • Denon AVR-4810
  • Marantz M-CR603
  • Marantz M-RC610
  • Marantz SR5008
  • Marantz SR6007 - SR6010
  • Marantz NR1506
  • Marantz NR1604
  • Other Denon AVR receivers (untested)
  • Marantz receivers (experimental)
If you have something else using the IP controller for your Denon AVR 3808CI, such as your URC controller, it will not work! There is either a bug or security issue with some models where only one device could be controlling the IP functionality.

To add a Denon Network Receiver to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: denonavr
    host: IP_ADDRESS
    name: NAME
    show_all_sources: True / False
    timeout: POSITIVE INTEGER
    zones:
      - zone: Zone2 / Zone3
        name: NAME

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): IP address of the device. Example: 192.168.1.32. If not set, auto-discovery is used.
  • name (Optional): Name of the device. If not set, friendlyName of the receiver is used.
  • show_all_sources (Optional): If True all sources are displayed in sources list even if they are marked as deleted in the receiver. If False deleted sources are not displayed (default). Some receivers have a bug that marks all sources as deleted in the interface. In this case, this option could help.
  • timeout (Optional): Timeout for HTTP requests to the receiver. Defaults to 2 seconds if not provided.
  • zones (Optional): List of additional zones to be activated. They are displayed as additional media players with the same functionality Main Zone of the device supports
    • zone: Zone which should be activated. Valid options are Zone2 and Zone3
    • name (Optional): Name of the zone. If not set the name of the main device + zone as a suffix is taken.

A few notes:

  • An additional option for the control of Denon AVR receivers with a built-in web server is using the HTTP interface with denonavr platform.
  • The denonavr platform supports some additional functionalities like album covers, custom input source names and auto discovery.
  • Marantz receivers seem to a have quite a similar interface. Thus if you own one, give it a try.
  • Sound mode: The command to set a specific sound mode is different from the value of the current sound mode reported by the receiver (sound_mode_raw). There is a key-value structure (sound_mode_dict) that matches the raw sound mode to one of the possible commands to set a sound mode (for instance {‘MUSIC’:[‘PLII MUSIC’]}. If you get a “Not able to match sound mode” warning, please open an issue on the denonavr library, stating which raw sound mode could not be matched so it can be added to the matching dictionary. You can find the current raw sound mode under “Development Tools/States” in the front panel.
