Audio Control - Yamaha Zone 2

My Yamaha has multiple zones - and my dining is connected to Zone2 - as there is no amplifier or remote control there, I managed to get the Velbus controls working icw OpenHab (with a little help from MDAR).

So, now I can:

  • power-on (and copy input from Main zone)
  • Volume Up / Down / Mute
  • copy the song title from MAIN zone if Zone2 is N/A (copying input from main) or show title from Zone2 (if input is set manually to something different via mobile app)

(rename to .rules)

“A little help” :laughing:

Seriously, great work.

I love seeing what people do to push the envelope of Velbus

v2 - with light feeback for power and mute

and “morning startup sequence” - initializing the amp, setting a default volume and loading a radio station from the favorites list" … just a simple click in the morning…

FYI this is something my brother has been working on, Yamaha MusicCast binding
→ GitHub link
→ Openhab community from where he started

This is my playground in basic UI:


Thanks for sharing:)
