What's New in Version 4.0
- Added support for the BDSx35 series
- Bugs fixed
Really not so bad
Don't know if previous versions were really that lousy, but I just installed in July the app works fine with my 3770 (a receiver I freakin love, so that probably factors in to this review...).
The app works fine for what it's supposed to, all the basic functions you get out of a remote. Although its definitely disappointing that there's no 2 way communication with the receiver. Like if I'm streaming with the vTuner as I so often do, I'd love to see the station I'm listening to on the app, as opposed to just tune up or down blindly. Update that functionality and it deserves 5 stars all day!
Works with AVR1700
Works from my iPad with my AVR1700. Can stream directly from iTunes to the receiver (in addition to/instead of within the HK app itself) with volume function. For AirPlay, be sure to put the receiver on "Server" mode and not on "Network" mode, even though the HK app sees the receiver via Ethernet on both settings. I've noticed a few crashes with the app itself when changing settings, but I have had no issues when simply streaming from iTunes instead.
Frustrated with poor quality app/system
I paid big doller for my SB26, only for it not to allow me to stream anything I want via Bluetooth. Please allow for other platforms(Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, SiriusXM, etc.) using this app to stream directly to the SB26. It's very frustrating when a lot of my music comes from those platforms and I am not able to enjoy music I want, when I want.
