Yamaha Network Receivers

The yamaha platform allows you to control Yamaha Network Receivers from Home Assistant.

Supported devices:

  • HTR-4065
  • RX-V473
  • RX-V573
  • RX-V673
  • RX-V773
  • And more

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

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: yamaha

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): Name of the device
  • host (Optional): IP address or hostname of the device
  • source_ignore (Optional): List of sources to hide in the front-end
  • source_names (Optional): Mapping of internal AVR source names to custom ones, allowing to rename e.g. HDMI1 to ChromeCast

A few notes:

  • Not specifying the host variable will result in automatically searching your network for Yamaha Receivers. It will add a media player device for each one.
  • For receivers that support more than one zone, Home Assistant will add one media player per zone supported by the player, named “$name Zone 2” and “$name Zone 3”.
  • In some cases, auto-discovery fails due to a known bug in the receiver’s firmware. It is possible to manually specify the receiver’s IP address or via it’s hostname (if it is discoverable by your DNS) then.
  • Please note: If adding the IP address or hostname manually, you must enable network standby on your receiver, or else startup of Home Assistant will hang if you have your receiver switched off.
  • Currently, this component supports powering on/off, mute, volume control and source selection. Playback controls, for instance play and stop are available for sources that supports it.

A full configuration example will look like the sample below:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: yamaha
      - "AUX"
      - "HDMI6"
      HDMI1: "ChromeCast"
      AV4: "Vinyl"
