I have a Denon AVR-4308CI. This model allows me to send commands to it over TCP port 23.

I have an Elk M1 Gold and an M1XEP interface. I have set my Netgear router to assign a static IP address for the Denon.

Is it possible to get Elk RP to send a string like PWON (Meaning "main PoWer ON") to a specific address like 192.168.0.96? I would like to wake to music, and issue the Power On command at, say, 6:30. (The Denon with the in-ceiling speakers would be a lot better than the current AM/FM clock radio.) The Denon also lacks a sleep feature, and I would like it to turn off 30 minutes after a task ("Good Night") is executed. Two-way RS-232 is not really needed for these tasks, and I will only be using a handful of commands.

Thanks for your help.

Thought that question sounded familiar, saw it at cocoontech.

I would think it would be easier to control the 4308 using the serial interface, from the Elk, but I really don't know.

This document details the M1 serial protocol, and it also describes some IP addressing - 4.3 Send ASCII String to IP Address, p. 16.

Sounds very possible via RS-232 but IP.. Don't think so.

Yes, I have cross-posted on Elk Dealer forum and CocoonTech. I ventured onto AVS because those questions have gone unanswered.

The post to the document was just what the doctor ordered! I'll hunker down and then report my progress. Thanks.
