Jump to: navigation, search

The Yamaha RX series is a collection of multi-source, multi-zone AV receiver/amplifier that can be integrated to work with external control systems and servers via ethernet connection.

This I/O server has been tested on the following models: RX-V1067, RX-V2067, RX-V3067, RX-V777 and RXA-2030 SINTO DSP.

It should be compatible as well with the following models: RX-A740, RX-A840, RX-A1040, RX-A2040, RX-A3040, RX-V677, RX-V1077, RX-V2077 and RX-V3077.

Yamaha Configuration

In order to be able to control the device with HSYCO SERVER some initial configuration of the Yamaha device is needed.

Using the supplied remote control, go to the "home screen" and select the "setup" menu. From here, configure the network setting a fixed IP address compatible with the network the device is connected to. Further, make sure the option "network standby" is set to "on".

HSYCO Configuration

Add a YAMAHARX I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

Communication

  • IP Address: the IP address of the device.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.
