This is a library and a GUI to communicate with Onkyo AV receivers over the network.

The library uses eISCP (Integra Serial Control Protocol over Ethernet) to control the receivers over an ethernet network connection.


  • Auto Detect receiver
  • Control volume and mute
  • Tuner selection
  • OSD Control
  • Chose input selector and listening mode
  • Net resources
  • Show title, album and artwork

Not implemented yet

  • Zone support
  • Audiocontrol like bass or treble
  • Speaker level
  • Commands via RIHD
  • Universal port commands
  • CD / DVD Player commands


The Application is build with Visual Studio 2012 (VS 2010 Solution) and target .NET Framework 4.0 Full.
Logging is performed via NLog. By Default there is no logging configuration file defined.
To enable logging copy a NLog.config file to the Exe Folder.
I use LightCore as IoC container. There is a command line arguments "FAKE" which init the IoC container with Fake classes.
The GIU is a WPF-Application (my very first) and is designed with MahApps.Metro.


The project is only tested with Onkyo TX-NR509 receiver.
