So I got an old Denon 1713 with nothing fancy but it works.
I'm planning to buy and add a Sonos Connect to my livingroom where my surround system is located. And where the Neeo is located - and connected - too. So this got me thinking:
How am I able to wake the receiver when I start playing music from the Sonos Connect?
I got in touch with Denon support which responded to me that the receiver have no "wake on signal" (toslink/digital in), so the receiver itself can't help me with this.
Would it be possible to auto start the Denon receiver when the Sonos Connect is being triggered? Is that possible with a recipe?
So the recipe for me would be triggered by Start Music on Sonos Connect:
- Turn on Receiver
- Set Receiver to Input "AUX"
- Set volume to "50"
..or something like that.
Would this be possible?
Pär If you launch the Recipe from your NEEO Remote this should be possible by editing the Sonos Recipe and add Power On AVR and switch inout to Aux.
For Power Off Sonos via NEEO this should work the same way, you need to add Power Off Denon then.
If you start music from the Sonos App, NEEO normaly also regognise that the Music was started, but i'm not confident if the Recipe was launched action will start. Therefor i would like to pull in Jeff Emily and Ingrid to that. They should be able to declare this with the Developers and can hopefully provide an answere.
But if it is not yet possible, then this should be considered as Feature Request and with some parts in code this can be happen some day!
Hi All, here's my take.
So when you start the sonos activity using the NEEO remote is will start the AVR as part of the recipe. You might have to add the power commands manually but you get the point.
When you start to play music on sonos via the app then logically nothing happens on NEEO. You are able to automate this however.
Create a new recipe, and select Sensor Value changes.
Now Select your sonos device and the sensor Playing
Select Turns On
Now add an action like Powering on the receiver:
Hope this helps
