Denon's HEOS wireless / wired streamers are the preferred music streaming players for use with myServer 6 systems.
They support most of the most popular audio streaming content providers with an excellent integration with myServer 6 user interfaces.
All HEOS devices should work. Tested are HEOS built into Denon AVRs, Heos Link HS2, and HEOS wireless speakers. For larger commercial projects, we recommend the HEOS Superlink that supports 4 independent radio stream players in a rack mount.
Unpack the HEOS streamer. Follow the included instructions for getting the device on the network (Ethernet is preferred, WiFi is well supported). Use the HEOS smartphone app from Apple or Google app stores for your smartphone.
Once your phone and the HEOS player is on same network, open the HEOS app and the app should find the player. If software / firmware updates are needed, they will automatically install. Your HEOS app should be configured with your streaming music services. Test the player using the HEOS app to ensure all is working. Once all is installed, you are ready to integrate the Player with myServer 6.
Download and Install the HEOS application from myServer 6 Software Updater.
Click on Configure on the HEOS application.
Run the Discover command.
Your HEOS player(s) should then show up.
For each player, edit and add your username / password, select the Room it should be associated to and Save.
Edit the "activate-room.roomaname" macro and enable HEOS by uncommenting it (delete the "//")
Edit the same macro: SetVariable|roomname_heos_id~3!
and Save the macro.
Use the Sheer Tablets (or Phone) sample template.
Select (activate) the Room the HEOS player is associated to. You should then see the HEOS user interface.
Click on "Selections" to choose your streaming source and navigate to the channel you would like to listen to.
It might take a few minutes for these lists to be populated first time.
You should see the coverart of the current song and the song should then be playing via the HEOS player.
Grouping: Group support will be added in the near future. The Volume control of each player works today.
When one issues the selectdevice command it will check to see if the browser has been initialized and if it hasn't it executes the HEOS home command to bring it into sync. selectdevice is called in the activate-source.heos macro
