I just installed the APP today. AND I've never ever installed an APP on any phone before. I'm quite good with computers though. It took me about one-half to one hour to install on my Letv Le 2 Pro X620 Helio X25 Octa Core. I've never used or installed any Add-Ons to my phone before installing the Yamaha Home Theater Controller. It was a challenge to get my phone recognized by install program. It took four or five attempts before successful installation. What worked was first I activated the Bluetooth on the Yamaha Sound bar, then linked the phone to the sound bar via Bluetooth connection. Then the Yamaha Home Theater Controller install recognized I had Google Play Services installed. The program is certainly worth spending time to install. I was thinking about giving up. I think what worked as someone else mentioned... was to link the Yamaha Soundbar to the phone using Bluetooth before attempting to install the Home Theater Controller APP.
Was fine now it does not auto connect ... please fix .. been a while now Are you gonna fix it back ??? Horrible how you are just ignoring customers Im not alone don't you care ? PLEASE explain why??? At least give us option to roll it back it did work fine I dont think i needed the update! Another update still have to force every time ... poor developers.
It does what's needed. It's useful for adjusting volume, inputs, and sound modes. I used to find it irrigating that it doesn't auto connect to Bluetooth but now it brings you to the Bluetooth setup menu if it isn't connected, then right back when connected, much quicker than how it used to be.
The app works well when I connect my bluetooth to my speakers first, then open the app, click setup, leave everything selected and click back to get to the app. Would be five stars if it connected without going to the app twice. 😄
it's not well working with Samsung Galaxy note 3, sometimes couldn't pair with new Yamaha ats -1060 soundbar. Old 1030 was paired good, though.
App works really well, button layout is simple and clear, most recent update addresses auto connect issue, but is very slow to search and reconnect.
