Note for the EU model AVRs:
The 'Power On' function requires Network Standby to be enabled in the AV Receiver's Network Settings. This feature is not available on EU models – but currently Sony's Audio Control API allows the enabling of it on EU model receivers. This app merely uses the API provided by Sony.

Enable Network Standby at your own risk as it uses A LOT MORE power on standby (more than 30 watts, which is more than EU regulations allow) and maybe more heat. There is no guarantee that this ability will remain in future firmware updates.

* Functions differ depending on the model of your receiver.

Excellent Replacement for Sony App & Remote Tried the Free version and quickly realised this fits the bill, appreciate the fact it opens up so much more than the Sony App and easy to use, helps to overcome the shortfall of the remote. Would be great if a remote command could be found to toggle the front panel Display info to validate what audio channels are active (Latest Update now flashes OFF on AMP display when opening the app.)

Hi Daniel. Thank you very much! I too would like to be able to toggle the front panel display, but I'm pretty certain that it is not possible currently. I will suggest it on the official developers forum, but I think it's unlikely to be added to the firmware on existing receiver models. (EDIT: Sorry re "OFF" msg. Fixed! Thanks for letting me know.)

Glad I opted for a reciever with networking. l use it from my phone & my Chromebook. My favorite feature is the ability to quickly save and select different settings profiles. For example, a one-click switch from heavy bass during the day to a low level at night, then right back up the next day. Quick feedback from the developer is also nice.

Thanks for your review. The app requires Network Standby enabled to power on the receiver. This will increase standby power consumption a lot however (to more than 30 watts). This feature is not officially available on EU models.

Absolutely fantastic. Makes using my AVR a pleasure. Being able to set your own pre sets is brilliant. I can instantly adjust equaliser by tapping one of my 4 pre loaded settings. What I like even more is the ability to adjust the sub woofer in the same way, instantly. Could not be happier with this App. 👍👍
