How can you use the device resource URI?

The device resource URI is used to access different sources on an audio product.

The URI can reference:
Physical input ports

such as an HDMI port

Internal or remote services

such as FM radio or a net service

Output sources

such as a speaker zone

The following tables describe the sources defined in the Audio Control API and which audio products include support for the source. The Device resource URI column contains the device resource URI to use. In some cases, extra parameters have to be added. For example for the extInput:hdmi source, specify the port by adding ?port=X to the URI, where X is the port number, and for the extOutput:zone, specify the zone number by adding ?zone=Y to the URI, where Y is the zone number.

See the table below to get to know the available sound sources:
