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-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 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 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 suffix is taken.

A few notes:

  • Additional option the control Denon AVR receivers with a builtin web server is using the HTTP interface with denonavr platform.
  • denonavr platform supports some additional functionalities like album covers, custom input source names and auto discovery.
  • Marantz receivers seem to a have quite simliar interface. Thus if you own one, give it a try.
