    Marantz AV8802A

    Hi all,

    I am wondering if this plugin works with the Marantz AV8802A.

    I have set up access via the appropriate network address and tried the usual port 23 however I cannot get any response from my Marantz Pre-amp. I am wondering if it's because this is a pre-amp instead of a traditional AVR?

    I can control my AV8802A over the network using web page HTML access via the same network address so I know that this is working, however the BLMarantz plugin doesn't seem to do anything.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards, Tim.

    After much frustration I have figured out the pattern of troubles that I am having with my AV8802a.

    In summary:
    - When I use the BLMarantz plugin to power on the unit, it seems to turn on all zones by default (zones 1,2,3)
    - If I leave zones 2 or 3 on, the plugin seems to work as expected.
    - If I turn off both zones 2 and 3, problems appear when I put the AV8802a into standby. After I have done this, the plugin no longer works. I cannot turn the unit back on with the plugin, and even if I do it manually, none of the plugin functions work again.
    - I can make the plugin work again by stopping it and restarting it.

    I am wondering if anyone with a Marantz unit with multiple zones has noticed this issue as well?
    Any input or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Cheers, Tim.
