Solid app I'm using this app with a TX-NR828 and it works just fine. Controls Zone 2 like a dream. Great if you want to listen to Sirius or Spotify in the backyard on outdoor speakers. Many parameters can be controlled too. As long as your receiver and phone are connected to the same WiFi, you shouldn't have a connection issue. I never have. Just one complaint... Loading net content takes a few minutes to load initially. Wish Onkyo would look into this. It shouldn't take that long to load. 5 stars if they fix that.
Needs to support more streaming services like Google Music; Spotify support is missing functionality only allowing you to search or play a playlist you saved (would be great if would support spotify connect so the spotify app could be used to control the receiver). Could use a firmware update to the TX-NR509. Having to continually restart the receiver because the receiver firmware keeps locking up and stops responding to controls from the app.
Where can we get the source code? Is there a way we can make the code open-source? Software always progresses so much faster if the community can drive it. Simple things that irritates me: when using the network to play music. When pressing the back button to see more music the list starts at the top again... So I have to scroll to the last folder where I was. No timer settings on the app. No sleep. No advanced settings.......
Biggest pile of rubbish like the AVR firmware. Amazing how a simple TCP connection can be screwed up by a bunch of amateur coders. No consistency to the problems: timeouts, unable to find receiver, connections not being made even though receiver can be seen. Lucky dip every time you start the app. Sometimes even have to unplug AVR to get it to connect again. WTF!! Testing obviously a dirty word for these developers. Crazy think they don't dont seem to learn with each release. Definitely wish i had bought another brand of receiver.
Better with every update. The first release of this app was terrible, years later and a few updates and I find myself using this app more and more. Only looses one star for the severely outdated design. Get in touch onkyo, I'll design a new skin for you.
Favourite App by far Playing my music collection on my Galaxy s4 through my TX-NR609 is just the best thing. My only gripe and it is only a small one is, when you look through your music collection (400 albums) it always starts at the beginning when you press the back button. I'd much rather be able to carry on scrolling where you was at if you get my meaning. ♥♥♥♥♥
