Yeah, I have received my Neeo and Ziggo/UPC media box and Samsung TV are set up, but I cannot find my Pioneer Audio system with DVD player. It is an NS-DV77 but I think uses the same set as DV88. It’s an old system but still works great in our small room.
I had some success selecting the last Pioneer in this series, the NS-DV1000. Numeric buttons, volume up/down works but not the power on/power off or power toggle. More research showed that Pioneer RC codes are a bit odd. How can I make my Pioneer system work with Neeo, as IMO I have a perfect setup but I don’t like to buy a new AV/DVD just to make it work with my Neeo. Help!!Reply
Yes! I added both the Pioneer Disc and tuner device buth had to add the AV device from the NS-DV1000. I updated the recipe to control audio volume from the AV receiver. The tuner controls are almost good, channels 11 and higher cannot be used as the original tuner remote has a 1-10 button to switch between sending two buttons for a channel versus one. As I only use tuner channels 1-10 this is ok for me. Pity the device is a dumb device.
One issue is that i cannot select input Video2 on the av receiver as that is the (optical) input I use for my Sonos connect. Can that be fixed? Or maybe create a Pioneer NS-DV77 AV receiver with the correct inputs?Reply
I too would like support for the DV77 system. My model is the XV-DV77 ( https://goo.gl/dnYk7E )
I've searched on the Pioneer websites for the IR codes, but cant find them for such an old piece of equipment.
At the moment it has limited functionality and the change inputs is not working, so, like Marcel, I can't select the correct input to get any audio out.
I route all audio via HDMI --> TV (Panasonic) --> Optical Out --> XV-DV77 (Video 1 Optical Input) so having no sound for anything is not so flash.
Please combine the DV77 into what it is, a DVD player, Tuner, and Receiver/Amp as one unit in the neeo devices list as well.Reply
Thanks for the update, I'm not sure that anything has changed.
I have Version 18 of the NS-DV77 Tuner and Version 36 of the NS-DV77 DVD.
There is no third device for the AVR in the database when I searched.
The way I see it a few things need to happen to get this device working up to neeo standards:
1. Combine the DVD, Tuner and AVR into one device. It is one device and only needs to be turned on once, despite being dumb.
2. Mirror that device to XV-DV77 and NS-DV77
3. The direct CD/DVD and Tuner buttons are the same as DV333 in the database, and these work. The Video V1/V2/V3 button needs to be mapped (see button 5 https://goo.gl/goiZhM) . This is a pain because while the direct dvd/tuner buttons will put the player in that mode, the Video button cycles between the 3 video inputs with no feedback of what is currently selected. It remains on the previously selected video input when power cycled or mode switched (video input -> DVD or Tuner -> Video) so we cant use that to reset to a known state.
I would suggest that a recipe could have the option to add a start up step where another screen similar to the dumb device power on screen is shown that can prompt the user to press a button (that has been set up in the recipe) to arrive at a desired state for the device. I would think that there will be a lot of older devices where this sort of work-around will be needed.Reply
