Permanently wire the volume control to specific device

If I use Spotify Connect through my phone to my receiver I am unable to control the volume with neeo, unless I have previously run a recipe ending with control of the receiver. I would basically like to "hard-wire" the volume control on my neeo to always control the volume on my receiver, regardless of what state neeo thinks it is in. Is this possible to achieve in some way?

  • Niklas Söderberg You will have to have one recipe active for the hardbutton to be mapped to a device. In each recipe you can force the AVR Volume to be the choice. Simply go to Settings/Recipes chose the recipe you want to modify, tap on in and chose EDIT. Then you see all the steps of this recipe and you have the “Use Volume...” option where you can map he Volume to your AVR. 

    You could also think about adding a duplicate recipe, rename it to Spotify or so and always choose that one for you AVR Spotify. Hope this helps.

  • Hi Raphael,
    could you elaborate a bit more? I too would like to have the volume buttons mapped to my receiver (because this guy tells me the volume in numbers on the screen), but keep all the other controls mapped to the TV.

    But when I edit a recipe, I do not see any "Use Volume..." options. When I press "Add step" I only get the four options "Send command to device", "Send email", "Wait (add a delay)" and "Show Controls".

    So where should I look to find the "Use Volume..." control?

    PS: Slightly off topic: Is there an option to tell a Denon receiver a specific volume (e.g. Volume level 45)? Right now I have only controls for Volume Up and Down

      Which Denon receiver do you have?  Normally you would set the specific start up volume within the receiver settings, not from a recipe in NEEO.

    • I see. So it might not be possible. 
      Setting the startup volume is only part of the solution I was looking for. Because I watch TV on lower volume than Blu-Rays. Therefore it would be cool to be able to set it in a recipe...

      I think that's only posible via IP control. I'm able to do it on a Pioneer via Simple Control an app for iOS.

    • Oh, that sounds promising. My Denon AVR-X4200W does have IP control. So I can keep up my hopes to see this functionality in the future!

     This only shows up if the recipe is automatically created by NEEO.  It is a known bug that it does not show in custom recipes.
