I am using the app to control 3 zones on a TX-RZ50. The app works exactly as I expected/hoped. My receiver dropped its wifi network connection once over 2 weeks. I don't feel this is an issue with the app, but with the receiver. I was able to correct the issue. So far I am happy to have this wireless remote app on my phone with the functions I need.

If you love pulling your hair out trying to stay connected to the 6100 receiver, this is the app for you. My receiver has wifi signal (100% in the hardware menu screen) and will play from Tidal, Spotify etc. The app can't find the receiver or constantly disconnects with some useless error about a route connection. Nothing else in my house has any network issues. Most frustrating is how I can open Spotify, cast to the receiver, and CONTROLL THE VOLUME through Spotify, but Onkyo app doesn't work!

Despite the negative reviews from users, this app works exactly as advertised. The real problem lies with the receivers or amps it is controlling. I discovered that the most expeditious way to get the app back to functionality was to unplug the receiver. Apparently, when the receiver is in standby, it's not resetting whatever buffer is used to play music from internet, network, or bluetooth sources. Only a hard shutdown will do the trick. Some food for thought.
