Yamaha RXV-3800

Has anyone controlled the Yamana 3800 receiver? I have a job coming up with one and the protocol looks pretty ugly. I haven't done a lot of resi so this is a new one for me.

    Bump.....this job kept getting pushed back and now it's getting closer. I think most of the RXV series receivers use the same protocol, so if anyone has used ANY of the RXV units in a job send me a PM.

    If the protocol is that ugly you could control it IR, then do some sort of status request using 232. that way you are only parsing a single string from the buffer, rather than a whole bunch of two-way traffic.

    I have it working with IR now, but given a choice I would prefer to use RS-232. I like the product itself, but the Denon is MUCH easier from a control standpoint and I can't say that I'll use Yamaha again if I can help it.
