iControlAV is the first app. of its kind from Pioneer Home Electronics that allows you to literally control your new Pioneer AV Receiver and BD Player with your iPhone or iPod Touch! Friends and family will be truly amazed as you take full control of your home theater sound in a whole new way! 4 screen modes allow you complete control of your Pioneer receivers sound tuning and switching capabilities.
“Control” mode provides the basic functions of the AV Receiver such as Power on/off, volume up and down, input select, and surround sound modes .Basic functions such as Play, Stop, Forward, and Reverse are supported for the BD Player.
Other functions include Pioneer's “Precision” mode for sound enhancement screens that also includes demo video clips to explain the benefits of these unique sound features. “Balance” and “Emphasis” modes are virtual motion adaptive functions that allow you to change the "sweet-spot" of your home theater, independently adjust the volume of your center speaker or subwoofer just by tilting your iPhone or iPod Touch!
*** Note: Regarding operation of this App by iOS7 ***
The features "BALANCE" and "EMPHASIS" don't work properly when using on iOS7.
The cause of the problem is under investigation.
All other basic features will work as normal.
What's New in Version 3.1.0
Does not support any recent Elite series Recievers.
I too have a SC-25 and, as others have pointed out, it does not work. Shame on you pioneer.
The SC-25 was released in August of 09 and this app was released a few months later in early 2010. Why is there no support for these over $1000 systems? This completely does not make sense and is an insult to any who have spent money on the recent equipment.
It seems that though they make their systems firm ware upgradeable this feature is an after thought for marketing purposes. I have yet to see any operational improvements and this app sends a clear message that pioneer is unwilling to spend any thought or time on their products after they have released them. I didnt buy this system for this app but I did buy it for the obvious potential for something like this. In the future I will seek either another company for my a/v gear or just buy used as their is no clear advantage to owning recent models. (other than writing big checks)
Love it. Once I got the network issues squared away.
Application works great with my SC-37. I have multiple levels of routers in the house so I had to ensure that each had a unique subnet assigned to ensure all my devices have unique IP addresses assigned by my DHCP settings. I use 3 routers each using a different subnet for DHCP assignment. Failure to do so can cause network issues on your device. Remember that the iphone or ipad needs to be able to "see" the receiver IP address from the Wireless network it is connected to, so firewalls you may have will need to be accounted for as well. Hope this helps those of you who are having connection errors.
When the AVR Can hold an IP, it's great!
I have the VSX-1120, and when first turned on the AVR is assigned a static IP address. The app can find the unit on the network and it works great. However after about 15-20 mins, the AVR just seems to "fall off" the network. I have a PS3 plugged into the same bridge, and the PS3 works fine, can get out to the network etc... The AVR just seems to "disappear". Turn it off, and back on, it can be found again. I have tried DHCP and now Static IP, but doesnt seem to matter. Swapped out cables, still, the same thing. I think the issue is with the AVR, and not the app. Not sure if there will be a firmware update for the AVR's to fix the issue, I hope so, becuase when the AVR is on the network, it's pretty cool!
