Really well designed and functional extension of my Yamaha receiver. I actually find myself using it more than the remote. I like how it allows me to customise the lists for dsp and inputs. The only thing I would like to see in the future releases is ability to shift position of the listener when effects like halls are active. Otherwise the design and execution as well as stability are impeccable. Top marks.
Great app. About 3 updates ago the app stopped allowing to split the zones. I could play whatever in the theater room while my wife listen to music in the other room. Now It only allows the second zone to play off the main zone so I can't watch my show and play music in the other room. It has some places for adjustment when selecting music or fast forwarding, it could be easier. The app works great. I will give it 5 stars when the zone 2 issue is corrected.
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.
It works pretty well. The part of the app that allows you to select songs isn't very well designed but it works well enough. One distinctly lacking feature that it should have is the ability to change which kind of surround decoder. Switching from Dolby or DTS, for example. This is not possible from the app. It would also be really nice if you could see what kind of input the AVR was receiving, for example whether it was receiving a signal for 5.1 or 7.1.
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.
Great app, never had issues, nice GUI but only access to basic features. Other features can only be accessed by using the remote and tv screen, which seems pretty lame. The equalizer should be included in the app, don't see why not full or most feature control via the app? A much new update is needed, this should not be difficult for a giant tech $$$$ company like Yamaha.
