Nice, but with room to grow... I run it with a WXC-50 device. *This app needs to have a track end time on the UI and the ability to scroll through the track on DLNA and USB, not just a smartphone. Other players have it, why not this...?? *How about recognising M3U playlists.... Not a big ask for Yamaha... *Seems to have issues reading a hard drive too, as in, only reads so many files on a USB Drive (WHY?????), which is disappointing if you have a decent collection of albums. ***I would expect a Yamaha device to have ALL the capabilities of a cheap DLNA App - at least. Yamaha Australia says it's a work in progress, but it needs to progress faster, but it is all up to Japan.... Hello Japan, do better please...!
I just installed a new Yamaha RX-1070 receiver and I continue to receive Connection Failed Error (-20305) when trying to connect it via this app. I was able to manually add the receiver to AV controller but there isn't an option for manual add in MusicCast. I spent 45 minutes with Yamaha's chat help today with no resolution. Do not purchase a Yamaha product with hopes of using this app.
Really convenient. I love that it streams to the reciever over wifi, so you dont get any interference like with bluetooth. However, this app could have a tad better UX and it has a few annoying bugs with volume control and connectivity. It looks like they update once in a while though.
The App is nice but there are still two things to improve. First the delay by streaming YouTube and listen to it on the Cast. The lips are moving um synchronize. Second a fade out function so the cast device will getting quieter and then get completely off.
Would be great...if it actually worked consistently. Spent an hour trying to re-connect this morning, only for it to lose connection again a couple of hours later. I spend more time trying (and failing) to connect to my stereo than I do listening to music.
0-stars. Dear Yamaha and App Developer: F**k you for such a lame and feature incomplete 1990s app that you boast about in the sales marketing of your A/V products. This absolutely sucks!
