Did they test this before deploying? I didn't think it could get worse than the old Denon app, but I guess you learn something new everyday. Literally will not even boot up - just sits at the startup screen for hours. Completely useless! Super awesome that in 2017 I still have no way to remotely control a $2,000 networked receiver
This is the first time I've reviewed an app on the play store. The latest update is broken for Android, but my Apple devices work. Apparently I'm not only one having issues. I have followed the instructions to check for updates on my receiver.
Somehow gets worse every update. Maybe one day there will be a working app for my $2k+ AVR, but I'm not holding my breath. It fails to connect well over 70% of the time.
When installed, worked fine. Now it does not display correctly the source playing, neither some of the controls (like radio channel selection for example). Still can control basic functions of the reciever, like source selection and volume. Hoping for a cure with the next update...
This app is shocking, & I have yet to use it without it hanging. I bought a Denon AVR because I still appreciate music as well as movies... but that's not much good if I can't get to it. I hope someone from the app developers does read these. Denon, you are compromising some decent HiFi equipment by not having a fit for purpose app.
Crashes frequently, slow and unresponsive. Low levels of functionality. Update: It's getting worse. It won't find the receiver on the network now so it's functionally useless. I regret having bought the Denon AVR due to this and other technical shortcomings.
