Ok hive brain…
I have been working on a custom code set for my No Hassle AV Multizone “Whole House” Audio Amplifier. This is the same as the MonoPrice Home Audio Distribution System. It just has IP control in addition to RS-232 serial control.
I can send commands to power it on, power it off. select sources and rooms. all that works well.
Volume control is 00-38 and so I am using data format 403 (00-60 Sharp TV, Leading zero) which leaves some room at the top, but it seems ok.
I have 2 questions:
- is there a better volume format to use? does anyone have a definition list for all of the volume formats in the DDK?
I can send an inquiry asking for volume status for Zone 1, to the device in the following way:
I send: ?11VO
the device responds:
where XX is a number between 00-38 representing the volume level.
- is there an existing parsing for that status reponse? if not, can I create a custom parsing? I have poured through the DDK and the sample .plist files and found nothing on this.
This device responds to all status requests in the same way as above (brackets for clarity only)
[2 digit zone code][2 letter item code][2 digit status value]
Thanks for everyone’s thoughts on this
