I sort of get all that. I have read and reread the wiki for this several times. I guess what I am saying is this.
if you go into your system and webadmin - device templates and look under Denon - Av/receivers etc... and apply filter you will now see
2 Am OTAradios 2 FM OTA radios 2 XM Satellite Radios etc... I think this maybe because I added a template twice somehow.
BUT if I look at the Yamaha Template At the bottom of the first page the Extra devices you speak off are added inside the Yamaha RX-x000 template I guess as an embedded or child to that parent device with some extra commands for each of the child devices. I cannot find any info on adding those or to the parent A/V device.
I will try to explain this better. I setup my inputs all is fine there - DVD, HDP, TUNER etc...
NOW if from the Media Scenario page for the receiver (not created yet) If I selected tuner as my source. Well in the Denon Command list book there are extra RS-232 commands for changing bands, preset up and down, preset scrolling A1-E1 and direct access to a channel.
Then for the IPOD input there are many commands for cursor up, down, etc then folder selections, track selection, etc...
then for XM you have all the standard XM Radio control commands within that XM input as well.
So I guess I am asking Now that inputs for Tuner, XM, Ipod etc where do I put the commands for the childs control inside that specific input on the parent - So like this
Denon AVR-988 - Tuner INput Selection - Then how do we control Band, AM Direct, FM Direct, Preset Up, Preset Dwn, Scroll Preset etc.
Then of course there is the zone 2 and three setups which have all of the above options again listed with a separate string
IE Main Zone Input DVD = SIDVD\r
Zone2 Input DVD Z2 SIDVD\r etc...
On top of all this
There are direct mode inputs for
DTS-HD, DD+, DD TrueHD, Multi-Channel in direct, Multi-Channel in pure direct, Multi-channel in 7.1 etc... none of these are in the supplied (stock) list in the system.
I would assume that if I am setting this up I only want to do it once and not have to edit the template over and over again and these new features will need to be added at some point.
If I had an HD-DVD player playing an HD-DVD with a DTS-HDMaster track but it was defaulting to DTS Standard I would then have no way to change this inside LMCE is the way I am think (Is this not correct?)
This is also going to be an issue with my satellite rcvr I am sure.
I have multiple a/v outputs on that unit (VU 6000HD) and there is a switch turning (toggle_ on/off) HD (turns on cmpt@1080I) SD (std def at 480i) through regular s-vid or composite. I have s-video feeding the pvr-150 in the hybrid and then I have the cmpt running to the rcvr and it is output (upconverts) on the HDMI from the rcvr to input 5 on the TV at 1080p. How do I get all this into a command string. I need to switch the STB to HD (for live TV from STB) to pass the cmpt signal to the rcvr when I want to watch HD on the TV and then switch back to SD when I want to use MYTH through the pvr-150 in the core. All this needs to be done via I/R as well.
