Integrate NAD python api as virtual mixer

Discuss client development (or even MPD development if you feel so inclined), ask questions about the client libs, MPD feature requests from client developers, etc...

Integrate NAD python api as virtual mixer

Post by mika91630 »

Hi,

I own a NAD D7050 amplifier, and I discovered this morning a python API to control it.
Is there a way, using the external mixer (mixer_type "null"), to integrate the API to control volume and amplifier on/off ?

The goal is to have a spotify and bubbleupnp fully remote experience with the smartphones. (no need to control amplifier volume with it's remote)
Thanks

There is a way, but you need to write a dedicated client for bridging between MPD's null mixer and your amplifier.

Ok thanks
I'll take a look for resources to help me understand how to implement this client.

You need a tiny client which listens for "mixer" events and then reads the volume level from MPD, transmits it to your amplifier, and gets back to waiting for more "mixer" events.
