If your model is not on the list then give it a test, if everything works correctly then add it to the list by clicking on the Edit this page on GitHub link above.

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.

Configuration

Adding Denon AVR Network Receivers to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

Denon AVR Network Receivers can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as “Discovered”, which you can select to set it up right away.

Manual configuration steps
host

IP address of the device, e.g., 192.168.1.32. If not set, auto-discovery is used.

show_all_sources

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. Some receivers have a bug that marks all sources as deleted in the interface. In this case, this option could help.

zone1

Specifies if zone 1 should be activated. Zones are displayed as additional media players with the same functionality as the Main Zone of the device supports.

zone2

Specifies if zone 2 should be activated. Zones are displayed as additional media players with the same functionality as the Main Zone of the device supports.

update_audyssey

Specifies if Audyssey settings should be updated. This can take up to 10 Seconds for some receivers.

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.
  • To remotely power on Marantz receivers with Home Assistant, the Auto-Standby feature must be enabled in the receiver’s settings.
  • 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 Developer Tools -> States.

Service denonavr.get_command

Generic commands are supported, in particular, any command supported by the telnet protocol can be sent to /goform/formiPhoneAppDirect.xml, e.g., /goform/formiPhoneAppDirect.xml?VSMONI2 to switch HDMI outputs on supported receivers. IR remote codes can also be sent to this endpoint, e.g., “/goform/formiPhoneAppDirect.xml?RCKSK0410370” as a mute toggle.
A comprehensive list of telnet protocol commands is also available and so is a full list of IR codes
