Horizon HD Recorder


The horizon component allows you to control a Unitymedia Horizon HD Recorder from Home Assistant.

To add a Horizon HD Recorder to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: horizon
    host: 192.168.0.127

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)The hostname or address of the device.

port

(int)(Optional)The port of the device to connect to.

name

(string)(Optional)The name of the device used in the frontend.

Preparation of the Horizon HD Recorder

The Home Networking (“Heimnetzwerk”) service needs to be enabled at the settings menu of the Horizon receiver. Once you have set up the Media Library (“Medienbibliothek”), we can determine whether the device is turned on or off. Without this, the component will fail to start.
