Review from Paul Cowley
Used to work... Loved this app when it worked, but the latest version doesn't play nicely. Even if I manually enter the IP address, the app cannot find my receiver. I've tried updating the receiver firmware, uninstalling and reinstalling the app... nothing helps. Online support is VERY lacking.
PAUSE button still does not work in Server mode... Version 4.5.2....It's a great app with excellent features and a good intereface. I love it but I wish the pause fuction would work when streaming music from my computer via the Server input. There IS a pause button, but it doesn't do anything, and I'd rather pause a good song and continue than just mute it while it continues not being heard. PLEASE FIX THE PAUSE BUTTON :)
Works very well most of the time Updates over the years have caused it not to work, but it has been a long time since that happened. It doesn't find receivers as well as it used to. I find I have to put the device IP address in and my home network is dhcp. I would like this to integrate with Amazon Echo / Alexa.
Problems with v677 solved!!!! Works like a dream Initially installed when i first got my AV reciever. It worked well until an update. Could never find the unit on my network. After a little while i realised that as i have the AV reciever conected via wireless and each day a new IP address is given to it. The fix involved fixing the IP address of the AV on the wireless router itself and using it in the app and it started to work like a dream. Hope this helps. Disappointed that I have to do this considering other companies have figured out DHCP
Frequently loses connection The app is great when it works, but midway through watching something, the app will no longer detect the receiver, necessitating keeping the remote within arm's reach. Restarting the receiver or app don't reliably work, nor does setting the receiver to an IP address. It just seems to find the router on its own sometimes. Quite annoying and completely unreliable.
[ZONE A] / [ZONE B] Control I'm thankful to hear that this app receives frequent updates. Would love for this app to fully replace the remote control, for the sake of my father's aging eyes, but the app doesn't seem to have the [ZONE A] / [ZONE B] button functionality that appears on the RX-V577 remote. Would love to have the ability to toggle those zones on/off via the app. Thanks for your continued development!
Be nice to be able to browse folders I can browse folders via the on screen net function on the amp but not via the amp... Some music is not categorised properly on my NAS so is not picked up by the app. Browse by folder would resolve that. Otherwise great!
