Needs to control A/B speakers

What is the point of being able to control your receiver if you have to walk to it to switch between A and B speakers. My outdoor speakers are connected to the receiver's B speaker output, and I have to climb 2 flights of stairs to switch it if I want to listen while outside. I can turn the unit on, change the input, and everything else all from my porch...why do I have to be standing in front of the unit to make this simple change? Pioneer you MUST build this feature into all versions of iControl!!! It's just so basic! 5 stars with this feature added!

Works Great

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.

Great, Handy App

I use this on my SC-1522 and it is great and so handy for controlling volume, switching sound modes, and controlling the inputs such as Pandora radio.

Someone here wrote an angry review about not being able to register your Pandora account with this app. This is so easy to do through the receiver. Registering Pandora is not the purpose of this app. Controlling it from anywhere in the house is the purpose.

Great app. Disappointed to see so many poor reviews. I had an Onkyo receiver blow up on me after 2 years but I stick with Pioneer because of the quality and reliability I have experienced. One is still going strong for 10 years and counting.
