I’m using the pioneer integration (Link) for my VSX-930. To control the volume etc. works well and also the state in the Home Assistant is updated well.
What not works is the turn on/off function. I’m not able to turn the device on or off with the developer tools or an automation. It works only with the UI with the default tile, which is created in the default lovelace dashboard.
When I’m using the service “switch.turn_on”, the device doesn’t appear in the list, same for the service “media_player.turn_on”. I’m also not able to use the YAML editor, because the pioneer AVR doesn’t have a unique ID (Link). So I’m not able to fill the data, needed for the service in YAML editor, because it want’s an entity_id from me.
I’m just confused that it works with the default UI…
Do you know any other solutions, which I could try to turn on/off that device?
The developer tool shows:
This switch is working well to turn the device on and off:
