I have been using Roomie for an year now. My denon 3808 was discovered and controlled via IP control. This worked for nearly 1 years without any problems.
In the past month the receiver stopped responding to IP commands.
Roomie is not the problem as even the network features like internet radio stopped working. I used the same network cable and plugged into a roku and it works fine. So it seems to me that network interface in the Denon may have stopped working. Initially I had static ip address assigned. I turned off the receiver and played around with both static and dynamic ip address and it began to work but stopped work after a hour. I cannot use RS232 as it is already used by my crestron system.
So I am considering switching to IR control. As long as it works reliably I am fine with lack of feedback. I have IP ITach Flex. I am already using two IP ports in the tri-port cable.
Denon 3808 has IR in port in the back and it also has an IR receiver in the front.
Can I use the IR in port in the back or do I have to use the IR receiver in the front?
Do I have to change anything in the ITach settings to make the third IR port work?
I will love to retire my Crestron remotes which require $300 for each change I make. Problem is that my wife is still used to remotes with physical buttons. My hope is that I can get the roomie to work reliably and hide the crestron remote for a week or two. Once she starts using IPad Mini/ IPad Touch (bought just for roomie) I can switch to the RS 232 control.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for me. It sucks to give up feedback.
