BluOS RTI Driver

This BluOS RTI Driver enables hi-res multi-room audio streaming on all BluOS players, including Bluesound and NAD Electronics products. Select from many audio sources, including network shares, streaming music services or direct inputs. Search and browse content with enhanced options like genre filters, related radio stations and artist radio. Use, add and delete presets. Access your favorite playlists. Enjoy full playback control and flexible play queue management, including the ability to edit and save the play queue. Group and ungroup players.

System macros can directly access these commands; play, pause, stop, skip forward, skip reverse, scan forward, scan reverse, seek, volume up, volume down, mute, load preset by index, load preset by name, set direct input.

For direct input access:

Make sure to keep the input name as is (e.g. Analog Input, Optical Input, Coaxial Input, HDMI ARC, Bluetooth etc). This is required ONLY IF BluOS firmware version is older than 4.2.0

If a player only has one input for one type, use the first input for the input. For example, if a player only has one Optical Input, use “Optical Input 1” as the Input in Set Direct Input command.

HDMI ARC is always for the HDMI ARC on Bluesound players or BluOS card.

HDMI 1A/2A/3A/ARCA and HDMI 1B/2B/3B/ARCB are the inputs on extended MDC HDM-2 module.

This driver supports up to 64 players on one network, with up to 16 players in a single group.
