    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

    I can confirm it works with the Media Player application.

    And works awesome! This is great, being able to use the theater receiver to feed zone 2 and 3 to whole house audio.

    The Denon Media Player source doesn't work with Media Player Object but the server function does. I can access my music files on my main PC with Windows Media Player shring turned on and the X3000 allowed.

    Hey Gary, I'm programming for one of these remotely, and can't use Debugger to figure out the inputs. Can you share your list? Thanks!

    I didn't write them down but I also did it remotely, just put a signal on the input name feedback serial output and change the inputs in debugger and you can see the input name.
