Marantz http-out node reads node inactive

marantz avr SR5015. I am able to ping the device on my PC after setting up network. But marantz http-out node reads node inactive.

Please Help.

@manishsuperhome Welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately, the node you are using (node-red-contrib-marantz-http) hasn't been updated by it's author in over 6 years. This indicates that it has probably been abandoned and you will have to find another solution for what you want to do.

I make it a habit of using the flows tab, here on the forum, to check out nodes when I'm going to use one. It is helpful to check when it was last updated and if there are issues and has the author replied to them.

Good luck finding a solution to what ever you are trying to do.

A few thoughts -

Your screen shot looks like the flow needs to be deployed.

Did you configure the node with the ip of your unit ?
Have you tried injecting the example payload shown in the docs ?
Does the status on the node change when you click the inject node ?

Does it work via the web page - as per

Marantz/Denon receivers can be controlled via TCP quite easily.

If you search google for 'marantz control protocol' you will find this spreadsheet.

In the command columns you will find what you can send and what it returns.

Example flow - change the IP address of the receiver in the TCP node

Yes, node is configured with the IP of my unit.
Yes, I injected the example payload shown in the docs.
No, the status does not change when I click the inject node.
Yes, the web page is working.

I used this flow, and changed the IP to my device, and injected the node, but there are no changes

Did you match the commands as specified in the spreadsheet (you may want to search for your specific device as the spreadsheet does mention a receiver - SR5014 - not sure if they are compatible or that something changed) - and this requires a LAN cable, not wireless.

You mean, the device marantz should be connected to a LAN Cable?

Yes correct. If you tried this wirelessly, yes the node will fail, connect a LAN cable and the node you used will most likely work as well (as it probably implements the protocol as described in the spreadsheet)

I connected using LAN, but it didn't work.

If you have a bit of free time, can you see what's wrong with my configuration? I can share my anydesk with you.
