My widget looks nothing like the widget pictured. Firstly, there's no text. Secondly, I have 4 extra controls not shown: Two circles with unknown functions, and two that control the source input. Picking the input is more than the Web interface can do, but considering the lack of basic functions found in the Web interface, which itself is inadequate, I'm not sure this widget provides much utility. Somewhere there must be a function reference. I'd hate to have to put a sniffer on the wire to decode what's being sent to the receiver. I'll call Yamaha and see if they can provide any information.

Thanks for your comment. I've just updated the screenshot.

Every reciever has a different web interface, their functionality differs as well. My main motivation was to have something more user-friendly and easier accessible than the web interface. Besides that, the plasmoid allows you to switch between different scenes even if the reciever does not support it. These are the two extra buttons you have mentioned.

Which features do you miss? Maybe I can add them.

The api of the reciever you can find here:
