What's New in Version 1.2.0
Love this app. I have the VSX-1122k and it operates very well. I'm impressed with all the functionality it has. The app allows you to do the obvious stuff like change inputs and change the volume but it also allows you to rename the inputs, make speaker setup changes such as speaker distances, volume bias adjustments per speaker and zone management. You can control zone 2 anywhere in the house (I use zone 2 for the in-house speaker system) and it is nice to be able to change pandora stations from anywhere.
The only thing I would like to see is the ability to turn the receiver on using this app. It was obviously considered and decided against because the app displays a message after turning the receiver off stating that you will need to turn it on manually to prevent accidental control from the app.
Works great with the sc1222k Lots of great features. Would like to see a feature to keep the iphone from going into Lock function at adjustable timing limits instead of disabling the lock thru my phones settings menu. Soooo, I'm gonna keep a star. Yet, I'm Still well satisfied. There are several compatible Pioneer apps for different Pioneer Receivers you just have to find the right one for your system. As far as network for my receiver, I assigned it it's own IP address thru my WPA network. If you believe your settings are correct and the app and the receiver don't respond to each other, You should probably reboot your amp and the app and try it again.
Need lot of Improvements
First thing this remote app is not that user friendly. It not always correctly show whether your receiver is in on or off state, this bug need to be fixed. I had a problem once its stopped working, started showing wrong ip address and different receiver name and I need to physically un plug and plug back the receiver power plug to make it work again. I have only one receiver connected to my network. Not all the features and controls on the actual remote is available in the app. It has just a small subset of main features in it. Some of the selection are toggle selection and I prefer to select from the list which is much quicker. Pandora is throwing network error and I never able to make it work from the remote app.
