Better than remote that came with avr. Easy to turn zones on and off, easy to select inputs. Prefer this to CEC control. Nice for listening to net radio (just needs better interface for favorites to make it easier to get to them faster).
When I can eventually get it loaded onto any of my devices e g. IPhone, Samsung S7 it will work reasonably well for a few weeks max and then without warning drops into Demo mode. Frustrated, angry and thoroughly sick of it and Yamaha
Was great for 2 months. Now it loses connection to receiver less than every two minutes. Basically can press one button and then it's fails. Just uninstalled it and I'll try a reinstall. If it gets better I'll update. I'm using in an access point that allows me to have my a1060, Chromecast, and stb wired. Stb and Chromecast work great with phone apps (Android casting, FiOS app) and a1060 used to work really well. Both stb and Chromecast are HDMI to a1060 then need av app to control volume/zones/inputs. I tried stairs ip on my router. Also tried to force ip in a1060 settings but then it won't connect at all.
This was a truly reliable app. Now it seems broken, volume not tracking, sound program indictated delayed. A crash, unheard of! All new issues, previously perfect. Please don't ruin this app.
This app no longer functions (version 4.60). It remains in Demo mode. It only shows AV functions and no HDMI. Have tried de-instalong re-installing to no avail. It's absolutely useless both on my Android phone and i-pad. Desperately requires a functioning upgrade.
Edit:Taking away another star after a day of use for new version. This has always been my favorite thing about a networked receiver. The newest update seems to have messed up use with the older lines. I have an Aventage avr710 and have never had problems. 5 star all the way. Now I had two crashes in about 20 minutes. Also seems to freeze on loading and lagging on currently playing display.
