yamaha platform allows you to control Yamaha Network Receivers from Home Assistant.
- And more
To add a Yamaha Network Receiver to your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry media_player: - platform: yamaha
- name (Optional): Name of the device. This overrides the default name (often model number) that is returned by 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.
- If the
discoverycomponent is enabled, all units on the network will be discovered using UPNP.
- 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”.
- If you specify
hostmanually, you must enable network standby on your receiver, or else startup of Home Assistant will hang if you have your receiver switched off.
- 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.
- Media players created by yamaha support powering on/off, mute, volume control and source selection. Playback controls, for instance play and stop are available for sources that supports it.
play_mediaservice is implemented for
NET RADIOsource only. The
>separted string of the menu path on the vtuner service. For instance

A full configuration example will look like the sample below:
# Example configuration.yaml entry media_player: - platform: yamaha host: 192.168.0.10 source_ignore: - "AUX" - "HDMI6" source_names: HDMI1: "ChromeCast" AV4: "Vinyl"
play_media function can be used in scripts easily to build media
player presets. When done in scripts, the sequence will also allow you
to set volume per source.
# Example play_media script # # This is for an environment where Zone 2 of the receiver named # `Living Room Stereo` drives outdoor speakers on the porch. script: rp_porch: alias: "Radio Paradise Porch" sequence: - service: media_player.turn_on data: entity_id: media_player.living_room_stereo_zone_2 - service: media_player.volume_set data: entity_id: media_player.living_room_stereo_zone_2 volume_level: 0.48 - service: media_player.play_media data: entity_id: media_player.living_room_stereo_zone_2 media_content_type: "NET RADIO" media_content_id: "Bookmarks>Internet>Radio Paradise"
