Ratings and Reviews
Worse than before
Latest update = zone 2 is gone. Can I downgrade to two versions ago? This app mostly worked then.
Simply cannot use app to turn on the receiver and then quickly set input to online music. Does not work. Receiver does not respond. Force close app and try again, and you get to wait for it to scan the network looking for a compatible unit. Then it still doesn't act right so I end up grabbing the stock remote and everything works. Receiver seems to work fine and has no problem responding to commands from the IR remote.
The app works great once the receiver has been on for a while, but by then I've already set my input and volume with the IR remote so who cares. Focus your efforts on cold starts. I switched from an onkyo for the same frustration with that garbage app.
Fantastic Idea - Poor Execution
Update: My Denon is hardwired. The previous issue with the app not finding the hardwired receiver seems to be resolved, but now with this latest update, the app will suddenly say the wireless network is not available, and that I should close the app until it is available, and then the app crashes. Some very poor coding and error handling. However when it works, it’s fantastic!
What a great idea for an app! I would use it regularly if it was stable. About once per month I start the app up and it can't detect my receiver. I have it set to a static IP so there should be no reason for this. When I try to enter the IP the app says it's not a supported device. I have to delete the app and reinstall it to get it working again. Unbelievably poor development. I suspect some idiot VP at D&M decided to outsource the development because they don't know what they are doing. Really hope someone hires a real dev team and fixes this app so it works, because it really is a fantastic idea.
Probably need to start from scratch on this one
Using a receiver with just a remote is confusing unless you understand the whole menu structure and what each button does, an app should fix that right? Not this one, it feels like someone just designed an app to mimic the remote, not an app to control a receiver in an intuitive manner.
-Speaker setup needs to be more obvious and have a section devoted to it, not forcing you back through then receivers on screen setup.
-Selecting output type on the inputs is really corny, I didn’t even think to tap the button again to change the type, had to hunt around online in forums, this should be a drop down
-would be cool if HEOS stuff appeared in here as optional speakers for other room audio. Maybe delays kill that functionality?
-the manual needs to include full navigation paths! It doesn’t help to know you can do something if you have to hunt through every menu to look for it.
-lots of other random stuff, but it seems like the basis for everything is that it was never designed like an app to control it in an intuitive manner. It was either designed by someone who loves the remote or just to mimic it, either one doesn’t help us out.
