Question about AVR Internet Radio (or other Tuner sources except tuner)

What is the supposed way to add additional device for special AVR sources?

I want to have an "Internet Radio" device on  my remote that has its own buttons and slides.

 

I added an "AVR Dummy" device that serves my needs but has a single annoying issue: It is still shown as an active device on the remote when the AVR gets powered off.

 

What is the correct way to get this working seamlessly?

  • Every AVR also has a TUNER part. So search for the receiver and add the tuner. 

    While starting the recipe select using the TV and receiver. Then edit the recipe later and remove the TV power and input commands.

    hope this helps.

  • Niels de Klerk I think that is not what sagdusmir aksed for. Most up-to-date AVRs have a TUNER and a Internet Radio like TuneIn. Selecting the Tuner will start the classic tuner. But how to design a recipe to start the build in internet radio?

    • Sven Wiese-Solty use the tuner driver. Input selection on the AVR can be FM but also NET or whatever it’s named on your AVR. I only use internet radio streams myself. Works perfectly.

      Niels de Klerk so I will have to add a recipe to my AVR Tuner device instead of adding another device exclusively for internet radio? But controls are completely different for those two use cases. :(

    • sagdusmir that’s why you add the tuner device. So you have the controls you expect from a tuner, including  favorites and channel up down. The AVR is used for input selection and volume control.

      Check the image.

      radio => TUNER

      versterker => AVR

    • sagdusmir these are the internet streams I have Pre set to a channel number. As you can see I can browse them nicely.

      Niels de Klerk but as I said: my internet radio controls do NOT and can NOT look like my radio controls. I have no fancy favorites that I can select with a single press of a button. My AVR needs some annoying navigation for internet streams, that I do not need for plain radio. 

      Update: I am sorry. I can not get the idea how all this is supposed to be set up. 

      My AVR Tuner does not have the controls available that are required for internet radio. So do I control internet radio and all other sources with the AVR device? 

      So I can not have individual and customized button layouts for often used AVR sources?
