    Crestron Connected Receiver

    26 Comments by Gary Published on 05-08-2014 04:22 PM
    So I did my first Crestron connected receiver and I'm pretty impressed.

    All of the issues I had revolved around getting everything setup. The setup instructions walk you through getting the receiver into installer setup mode. To do this there is a combination of buttons you press while the receiver is off. The instructions lead you to believe that this will bring up the installer menu, it does not. It turns the receiver on and when you press the setup button on the remote the Crestron setup option is in the menu. On the next power cycle the setup menu goes back to normal. This took me more time than I care to admit to figure out out, so hopefully this saves you guys some time.

    Setting the unit up is just like any other Crestron network device, the unit gets an IP ID and you enter the IP address of the processor. For some reason I couldn't get the receiver to communicate with the processor until I gave it (the receiver) a fixed IP address even though it showed online. YMMV

    From a programing stand point it's just like the SWAMP or C2N-AMP-4x100.

    The only real problem I had was that there is no listing of what analogs switch which sources, five minutes in debugger and all was well.

    In addition I used the zone 2 out to feed the media player to a PAD8 as a music source.



    This has all been in and working without any complaints for about 2 weeks.

    Crestron Connected Receiver

    Gary,

    How is the volume tracking feedback compared to when controlling the Denons with serial?

    I have not tried using a slider with it but the feedback seems just as fast and reliable as a SWAMP. I think I'm going to get one of these at home, so ask me again in a few weeks.

    Yes, please give some feedback on the volume control. Did you ever pull power on the receiver and see if it came back under control right away?
    I finally quit drinking for good. Now, I do it for evil.

    It does come back quickly when I load a program, I did not try to power cycle, I'll do that next time I'm on site and report back.

    Do you know if you can use the Core 3 Media Player Object with the Media Player of the AVR? I'm guessing not.

    The sample program from Crestron is using the media player object.

    Re: Crestron Connected Receiver

    This could be awesome. Finally a simple, cost effective way to give 2-way pandora control. Gotta test this!

    I don't see on the symbol any way to use the Media Player from Smartgraphics although it does work well with a standard list for browsing.
