    Can't control audio volume when connected to receiver

    Hi Spud,

    I've just installed the plugin and everything is working.
    However I've connected my TV with a HDMI on a ARC port on my receiver and I can't control the audio on my receiver.

    I've used the MediaController plugin from Dcorsus and this plugin controlled the volume of my receiver through the device it created for my SonyTv. My remote control for the sonyTv also controls the audio for my receiver.

    Could you implement this in your plugin? I believe this function is called System Audio Control.

    TV type: KDL-55W809C

    Would really like to know if it's possible for you to implement this feature.


      sorry for the delay,
      the volume device can only handle the volume of the TV speakers

      However from the config page, you can add the Volume Up/Down controls like in the screenshot below. Then click the "Update Remote Control Device" button, 2 buttons will be added to the Remote Control device, and will behave exactly like the buttons on your physical remote.
