  • Russound RIO Support

    I am curious if anyone knows whether the RIO protocol will work on the CAV and CAA models. I cannot really find anything saying that it works with the older receivers.

    I know it works with the MCA series
    Cheers,
    Bob

    I don't believe that it does. I remember the author of the Vera plugin going through this and he ended up supporting both I believe. That said, I'm happy to try out anything you cook up.

      I wondered because the RIO protocol says it supports RS232 and TCP connections.
      I would have been nice to use just one protocol.

        My understanding is the older stuff (like my cam) is strictly RNET.

        I am surprised to see that RIO is serial too, I thought it was ethernet only.

          Blade,

          The below linked manual I found online descibes the RIO protocol as text based protocol that is a "superset" of RNET. So I think it is RNET plus new features like two way communication, selectable baud rate, etc. Have a look in the "Introduction" section of the manual. If this is correct, it probably would not be difficult to integrate the new protocol in your plugin so users and get the new features if they have a newer model Russound amp (I for one would be interested and would help test).

          Love to hear your thoughts on interest in expanding the capabilities of your plugin!

            My reading is that, while it may be a superset of RNET capability, it does not utilize the same codes as RNET. So it may do everything RNET does, plus more, but it does it with ASCII text, not HEX codes.

                  It will take some major rework in the plugin to add it

                    I was hoping it would be easier ... hopefully you are still interested. I have a D850 being shipped to me as we speak. I would be willing to test for you.

                        It is on the list but it may take a while to get to it

                          I was looking at the code and RIO support may be too hard to incorporate into the existing plugin. I would have to rewrite a lot of it in order to allow both protocols.

                            So would you write a separate plugin or are you thinking it's a no go?

                              I would like to make it one plugin but it is going to take quite a bit of work to do it because I have to make sure it does not break the current plugin or the integration between other plugins
