What's New in Version 2.2.2
Improving the quality of operation.
Mostly good except for serious problem with vTuner
I do like this but it needs some mods.
Firstly the volume control would benefit from the addition of +/- buttons as the slider isn't too subtle.
Other than that, nice app.
Updated September 2014
I've downgraded my review of this app as a result of Sony's pathetic handling of the non-availability of one of their services, namly vTuner, used to access internet radio stations from around the world. This *was* a brilliant feature, and was a factor when selecting my AV receiver (which does not have DAB). So basically I have no internet radio whatsoever now. Thanks Sony!
As of 5 Sep 14, vTuner is no longer available to Sony hardware owners, seriously reducing the functionaility of our kit. Sony are handling this very badly. Support is utterly useless and they are making no statement as to when the problem will be resolved. Same story in approaching vTuner. I don't care if either company is displeased by my comments as their attitude to customers is terrible,
So, readers, if you are considering buying Sony kit for vTuner use, don't waste your money.
This app is fantastic, I can play the same music all over the house, or choose to play different music on separate speakers. I like the fact I can have the same volume everywhere, or set each speaker at different levels as well, and works perfectly with the NAS drive. Only issue is the radio feature - it comes up with errors on most folders and we can't access the local radio stations. Currently using Tunein radio, but this only works on one speaker at a time.
Good app but problems playing back some tracks
Great app but would be better if it didn't through a fit at playing back certian tracks/albums/artists. What i mean by this is I open music folder selct the track I want to hear and the track doesn't play back to my Sony receiver. but it plays fine in itunes, foobar, synology DS Audio, VLC, so i know there isn't anything wrong with the music file when this happens. Same happens in Sony's SongPal. if Sony can sort this out the app would be fantastic.
