Yamaha Network Receiver - How to change source, volume etc in action?

I know how to turn devices on/off in actions, but I’m stuck with how to change attributes. E.g. for my yamaha receiver when it turns on in a new automation I want to set the source to ‘Android TV’, volume to 0.8 and sound_mode to standard? Help please.

Thanks in advance

You know what, I didn’t know that was there - thank you!

Thanks - that was a big help


The service : select_sound_mode doesn’t work?

Select_source is ok. Have you a solution?

works fine for me.

This litteral expression is ok?

Sorry for my bad english.

yep, that should switch it to Standard if its an option for your receiver.
