    Crestron Connected Receiver

    27 Comments by Gary Published on 05-08-2014 03:22 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.

    -----Update---- the setup instructions can be found here, http://support.crestron.com/app/answ...id/5467/kw/avr

    Yes, I had thought of that, but don't have remote access to the system

    Re: Crestron Connected Receiver

    I added the preamp (AV7701) to the project after fumbling through it,but I have no control. Just trying to power on and off.
    After doing the special installer menu dance (left cursor, back and power together), I made it to the menu and selected Crestron Connected. set the IP address, Crestron ID and left the port default. There was no SAVE/ RETURN buttons at the bottom of the marantz screen as shown from Crestron tech notes.
    Not sure what to do next.
    I finally quit drinking for good. Now, I do it for evil.

    The first one I did would not work until I gave the receiver a fixed IP address, not sure why and YMMV.

    Re: Crestron Connected Receiver

    Having some IP control problems with the new AV7702.
    Marantz CI Portal says nothing has changed in the control part on this preamp.
    I am going to remove the DNS entrys as instructed on the serial/IP control protocol sheet and see if that helps.
    I can get to it with a browser on port 80, but no control from port 23. Serial works fine.

    Re: Crestron Connected Receiver

    As of 2021, Marantz AVRs no longer support Crestron Connected. Specifically, I'm working with an SR7015, but it is apparently an across the product line drop.....
