I need some help with an automation for the Denon AVR.
- What I have:
A Denon AVR integration →
A Denon HEOS integration →
A Bubble UPNP server, which manages my playlists and online streams.
Everything works fine with no any issues.
- What is happening, I want to change:
Imagine, I start playing a playlist on Bubble UPNP, that contains 40 songs. Bubble starts playing. Denon AVR jumps on and Denon HEOS picks the playlist and displays the album covers.
So far, excellent.
Now my second half comes home and wants to watch TV. So she grabs the remote and switch the Denon AVR to source
XS4ALL TV. The Denon AVR does that and she can watch the TV. Until Bubble UPNP sends the next song in my playlist. The Denon AVR automatically switches back to HEOS and plays the song.
- What I want to do now:
I would like to write an automation to stop the HEOS playlist, when any another source is selected on the AVR.
trigger - source change on Denon AVR
condition - playback of a playlist is active on HEOS
action - Pause the playlist on HEOS
That should stop this behavior.
- So, why I did not make that automation already?
Well, because I do not know, how to work with those states of the media players exactly. In the UI I can’t find simple way to use the source change as a trigger.
So if someone, please, can help me get on the right track with this, I would be thankful
