Onkyo becomes unresponsive

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc41c00b440>

I’m using Onkyo TX-NR636 with this config:

  - platform: onkyo
    name: Onkyo
      pc: 'Living Room'   
    scan_interval: 20

I managed to get it working once but now and then it becomes unresponsive.
Logs in the Configuration show:

Setup of media_player platform onkyo is taking over 10 seconds.

Docker container reports this:

DEBUG (SyncWorker_30) [homeassistant.components.onkyo.media_player] Resetting connection to Onkyo

I have tried power cycle it like suggested here but no luck: Onkyo not responding

For some reason Home Assistant makes my Onkyo unresponsive even to the onkyo app (Remote3) which normally works.

Any idea?


I am getting the exact same problem, I also have the TX-NR636. When I tried using the onkyo command, I can discover it, the onkyo-eiscp script breaks and gives this error:

/config # onkyo --discover
TX-NR636      0009B0D8562B

/config # onkyo -n 636 system-power=off
