Is this still being developed? I've noticed that it shows my Philips Hue more often than my Yamaha :-(

Hi Kimmoli, I love the idea of your app, even though my av receiver is 20 years old and not wifi/network capable, as you would imagine.

Anyway, I noticed you asked for an app icon for YNC, well, here's a start!;

Something like that, but sliver-grey+black ? converted in greyscale?

Is it correct that it is still missing TV as a source?

still? from the first version?

There is no "TV" input in my receiver, it is AV5 which is named as TV

Shows as "TV (AV5)" in the list

I am sorry kimmoli, I forgot I was using a Philips TV api call for this switch (afaik I did this because of a HDMI arc setup).

It could have been that you had not connected your TV to the receiver, so that's why I asked :-)

Keep up the good work!

Cool, as expected it also works on my RX-V677.

I made a basic (personal) app for this, calling existing Python libs. But I think your app already looks better. Are you planning to match all the official Yamaha app features, or just stick with the main functions?

I will add some functions, at least network radio, dsp modes, storing of found devices (no need to search everytime app is started) Propably not everything from official app.

My 473 doesn't have spotify support, so i can't do that myself.

Suggestions for roadmap (and pull requests) are welcome,

Tested (developed) with my RX-V473, also heard that it is working with RX-V777
