Review from Brent Nasternak
Very good BUT... PARTY MODE! Come on its so close to 5 stars but why oh why cant the party mode button be added? The funny thing is it does have the Party Mode function in demo mode but once you activate your amp the function dissapears??? Oh and a permanent home screen bar somewhere along the top or bottom that you can quickly access the zones would be soo handy to make changing zone volumes a breeze.
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 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.
Was an awesome app. Last two revs broken. Now, in addition to weak codec support (skipping huge swaths of playlists at a time), it drops connections, or switches to your phone for output. My phone isn't a Yamaha. The UI was always a little funky, but it worked really well. I'm really saddened now. I hope it's fixed one day. Just seems wrong in this day and age to need to cable devices and deal with hum and interference.
Hate that I can't play a specific folder with songs I already organized. Why the heck force me to pick out songs from a huge list to create a play list. I don't got time for that.. for God's sake just let me select a folder in my phone to play whats already in side..
this app is pretty sweet works great I just don't get why there isn't more eq options in it... it would be nice to adjust each speaker on the fly or at the very least have access to a parametric EQ instead of just bass/trebal.... the zone 2 options are pretty sad as well when using Spotify always kicks out the main zone....
